Mosquito and Sandfly
At COMO Parrot Cay we take a three-step approach to reducing the mosquito and sandfly populations on the island. This protects guests from the annoyance and potential health risks caused by insect bites.
Step One: The Use of Completely Natural Pesticides Morning and evening our environment team spray ‘pyrethrum’, an organic substance derived from daisy petals. We spray at high and low altitude to target the insects at each stage of their life cycle.
Step Two: Preventive Maintenance Our environment team work year round to reduce mosquito and sandfly populations, landscaping in a way that disrupts the insects’ breeding habitats.
Step Three: Preventive Action Tiki torches and candles throughout the properties burn citronella; a pleasant-smelling, entirely natural way of limiting the presence of mosquitos and sandflies. Furthermore, the air conditioning units in every property can reduce humidity and temperature, creating an atmosphere almost entirely free of insects.
