Thermal Fogging (Routine fogging harmful to health)
Has thermal fogging been recommended as a solution to the ever-rising mosquito menace at your office building? It is a misconception that fogging is one of the best solutions to get rid of mosquitoes. It only creates pesticide resistance in mosquitoes, destroys natural predators of the mosquitoes and pollutes the environment. It's also harmful to our health and hazardous to vulnerable groups.
Thermal fogger solution uses diesel as a carrier for the insecticide. This makes the constituents of the fog fat soluble. These small droplets can easily be absorbed into the body. In the long term, the accumulation of pesticide and diesel is toxic and potentially carcinogenic. It is also known to damage the kidneys and affect blood clotting.
In thermal fogger solution, the carrier used is kerosene or diesel which is normally mixed with a chemically active ingredient (in most cases, Malathion).
