Mérida, Yucatán – A five-day plan to spray for mosquitoes in every neighborhood is in place as part of the city’s ongoing campaign against dengue and chikungunya.

Thirty-five fumigation trucks and a crew of 70 men will wind their way through every street in Mérida until the entire city is blanketed in insecticide. Crews reach the center — including Santa Ana, Santiago, Mejorada, San Sebastian and San Juan — the night of Monday, Sept. 28, which happens to be the first day of the program.

Crews will spray at night, or if weather prevents that, at dawn, hitting 40-86 colonias per day, said health secretary Jorge Eduardo Mendoza Mézquita.

Residents are urged us to keep their windows open so the insecticide can do its job inside and out.

Here is the city’s schedule:
