WHAT IS FOGGING?

- Fogging Focus Is the eradication of dengue mosquitoes by means of fumigation focused on the area where the suspect / dengue sufferer is found.
- Bulk Fogging Is a fumigation activity simultaneously and thoroughly when DHF occurs in the area / region
Effectiveness of Fogging for Overcoming Dengue Fever
Fogging or fumigation is done as a method of controlling the factors that cause DHF, namely the Aedes aegypti mosquito. Usually this activity is carried out using a machine that can emit smoke filled with insecticides.
