Beating Pests with Education
Children in Monte Verde, Honduras learned about mosquitoes and the dangerous diseases they spread thanks to an Operation Blessing workshop. Through a lesson, interaction, and coloring pages, these children learned about the dangers of mosquitoes and how to protect themselves. Essentially, in addition to biological controls, OB Honduras is beating pests with education! The biological controls include turtles, copepods, and fish. All of these are natural, biological predators who consume the mosquito larvae before it has a chance to hatch and turn into a disease-carrying mosquito.
