BugOut is a new, innovative, community-driven vector control program on Virgin Gorda. Driven by our Community Vector Control Operations and our BugOut Precinct System, we’re working hard to significantly reduce the population of mosquitoes that spread Zika, dengue, and other vector-borne diseases.

Here’s what we’ve been up to…

Protect yourself from mosquitoes; wear long sleeves and long pants and use natural repellent, such as Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus
