Alibagu, City of Ilagan – In support to the Province-wide Dengue Day, DOST PSTC Isabela awarded 10,000 Ovicidal Larvicidal trap pellets, 200 canisters and 400 lawanit paddles to Isabela Provincial Cooperative Development Office.

An OL Trap is composed of a black canister, a lawanit paddle, and pellets. Putting OL Traps under the furniture, beside discarded tires and other dark, shady areas helps decrease the Aedes aegypti mosquito population as mosquito eggs and larvae die in contact with the trap’s organic active solution.This limits dengue cases especially among school children.

About 564 micro, small and medium cooperatives are expected to benefit the OL trap kits.

The Province of Isabela declared 15 August 2018, Wednesday, a Non-working holiday in all government and non-government offices for the conduct of “TODAS DENGUE, TODO NA’TO (IKALIMANG KAGAT)” massive clean-up activities to eliminate mosquito breeding sites and stop the spread of dengue fever and other mosquito-borne diseases.
