Our pest control contractor will be fogging the development on August 24th, 2012 with a pesticide to reduce the presence of mosquitoes that may contribute to dengue fever outbreaks. Open water will also be treated with a system to kill larvae.

Treatment will take place between the hours of 2:30am and 5:00am, the following guidelines should be observed by all residents:

  1. No persons and/or animals are to be outside during the fogging procedure treatment time.
  2. Close windows and doors during the fogging exercise, they should remain closed for 45 minutes after completion.
  3. Cover swimming pools and decorative water features.
  4. Place all pet feeding/watering bowls indoors.
  5. Turn off all fans and/or air conditioners or set them at exhaust.
  6. Persons and animals can go outside (if necessary) 45 minutes upon completion of the fogging activity. Note this is especially important for children, pregnant women and asthmatics.
  7. Rinse all household items/toys that were left outside before using them.
  8. Rinse all fruits and vegetables (that were in the garden/yard) thoroughly before consuming them.

  1. Can someone please inform us by e-mail in good time if you are going to postpone. I spent a very hot night with the windows shut and a restless cat who would have preferred to go out in the yard. I check e-mail before going to bed, as do most people I suspect, but only on occasion do I check the website.

    1. Good Afternoon Mrs. Thornton,
      Please note that we never knew the vendor was going to cancel the fogging. They made that decision when they were about to fog and the rain came down. When I called this morning I found out that they cancelled the Fogging. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Thank you
