Belagavi city, with its 58 wards, is facing a major issue with mosquito control. The city corporation has only one working fogging machine, which is insufficient to combat the growing mosquito population. The suburbs are particularly affected, with garbage not being collected on time and drainage water spreading, leading to an increase in mosquito breeding sites. This has resulted in a rise in epidemic diseases such as dengue and malaria, affecting many people.

The situation is alarming, and it has been revealed that the city corporation has only two fogging machines, with one of them not even functioning. The need for more fogging machines is urgent, and the commissioner has proposed the acquisition of 12 more machines to address the issue. The corporators have been assured that the machines will be made available soon.


It is crucial that the city takes immediate action to control the mosquito population and prevent the spread of diseases. The acquisition of more fogging machines is a step in the right direction, but it is also important to address the underlying issues of garbage collection and drainage management. The health and well-being of the citizens of Belagavi city should be a top priority, and it is time for the authorities to take decisive action to ensure a cleaner and safer environment for all.
