9:00 AM – Ramford County Department of Health
Ms. Perdont, CEO of Perdont Poultry Industries and Ms. Rao, Director of the Citizens Health Initiative for Protecting People and Environments in Ramford (CHIPPER) present a proposal to re-introduce the application of the banned insecticide DDT. The proposal is based on the:
- effectiveness of this chemical in mosquito control;
- threat to human health;
- damage to the industry from the SRRV epidemic last year; and
- the potential for a major serge in the epidemic in the next mosquito season.
