(File photo)The Environmental Coordinating Unit wants shop keepers and food establishments to development a Rodent Control Program to eradicate the cases of Leptospirosis on the island.Chief Environmental Health Officer Anthony Scotland says 34 cases of Leptospirosis have been recorded so far for this year. “They should always design their shops to prevent rodents. The rats always find a way into these premises. Sugar and flour should be stored in sealed containers. During the night they should protect the sugar and flour containers. If the rodent problems persist, then the shopkeepers need to bait the rat. They must be killed. They also need to manage their scrap in an effort to starve the rats,” Scotland noted.Scotland is also advising persons to connect their waste water line unto the sewage system.“When the scrap goes into the public drain, food is being provided for the rats and also other animals,” he explained.Meantime, Anthony says a program to reduce the rodent population at Dominica’s Sea Ports is ongoing.“We have done rodent control programs in Portsmouth. Woodbridge Bay was the major hub, we have started a program at Longhouse and we are baiting and trying to protect the food that’s coming into the ports,” he said.Dominica Vibes News LocalNews Calls for shopkeepers to develop Rodent Control Program by: – September 23, 2011 Sharelast_img read more
