Mosquito season is here again and fogging operations are being done
to counter the threat of Aedes mosquitoes which is a vector for dengue
fever. I remember the fogging operators going into my house when I was
young and I simply loved the smell of the chemicals. It’s a sickly
sweet smell and it’s like walking in a fog dream.
I saw fogging operations being done again just now. They still use
the phallic looking fogging devices but the Malathion trucks were gone.
It used to be a double whammy last time, fogging operations followed
quickly by a truck dispensing Malathion through a specialized exhaust.
I think they scrapped the Malathion truck coz of the toxicity…
I miss those trucks…
