Abu Dhabi: Eighty per cent of households are responsible if they find pests in their home after spraying because they lack hygiene, according to a top official from Abu Dhabi’s Waste Management Centre, Tadweer.
“Even after the spraying of pesticides, there is an 80 per cent responsibility on behalf of households. We use the best pesticides in the world that approved by the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment, but if there is no best hygiene practice at home the pest will come back within 15 days,” Mohammad Al Marzouqi, Director of Pest Control Projects at Tadweer, told Gulf News.
“Residents think that if they spray once it’s done and pests are gone, but no, it’s not like that. They should ask the pest control companies, ‘Why do I still have pests in my home, and what am I doing wrong?’”
