Feature: Insecticide-treated nets drive away mosquitoes

Bacolod City (15 September) -- The insecticide treated mosquito nets that DOH Secretary Enrique Ona donated to Villa Esperanza Elementary School last month is effective in driving away mosquitoes and flies, school Principal Asther Jean Saril said.

Flies used to inhabit the school vicinity while mosquitoes are evident. But after the nets were installed, pupils, teachers and Saril herself noticed the gradual absence of the insects in the classrooms and school environs.

She said more than 90 percent of the school's 18 classroom buildings are now secured with the net.

Saril told PIA she is elated that the school is a recipient of this donation as she reiterated her gratitude to Bacolod Rep. Anthony Golez and Sec. Ona.

With the help of Sugarlandia Lions Club, donor of construction materials and other projects in school, all instructional buildings will be installed with the net by the end of the month.

To sustain the school's efforts towards a dengue free community, Saril organized pupils to become Community Aides who will voluntarily clean surroundings and recruit others to do the same.

The school also maintains common herbal plants in its garden as part of the curriculum and chose to grow useful herbs to educate the children of its benefits. (PIA-LOL) [top]
