The City Council carries out actions in the sanitation network to prevent pests
Antequera prepares for possible summer pests, for which the specialized company Gimasur Ambiental, is carrying out surveillance and inspection of the arching of the sanitation network in order to avoid hygienic-health problems arising from urban pests.
Thus has confirmed the Councilor of the Environment, Juan Alvarez, this preventive action in the face of the rise of temperatures and humidity. The urban pests for which it is being intervened are rodents or cockroaches mainly, frequent in summer in all urban enclaves.
The actions are taking place in all the neighborhoods of Antequera, with the pretence of evaluating certain situations, in case of deratization or health disintegration on public roads, thus anticipating a population explosion.
As a prevention measure, a global disinfection campaign is underway over the past month in all neighborhoods of the city with some degree of cockroach infestation, in order to prevent its highest incidence in the summer period.
Both the disinfection and deratization carried out have taken place during the night hours, from 22:00 to 4:00 hours, to avoid inconvenience to traffic and citizens.
The treated areas have been specifically Parquesol, Parque Verónica, Albarizas, García Prieto, Juan Porras, Nueva Andalucía, Padre Ferris, San José, Girón, La Paz, Los Remedios, Fray Mateo Delgado, Avenida de Málaga, Calle Toledo, San Isidro, La Quinta, Fernández Viagas, San Francisco, Miraflores, Córdoba Road, El Molino, Infante Don Fernando and Picadero streets.
Alvarez has reported that the next treatment for pest control is expected to be carried out, based on the experience of previous years, in the months of July and August although, thanks to the early action already carried out, the possible incidents are minimized.
“Both the Environment Area and the municipal company of Aguas del Torcal have been working in preliminary weeks on concrete actions that are carried out with the arrival of high temperatures, all with the aim of cleaning and good condition of the city’s sanitation, thus resulting in all our neighbors,” he said.
