HONOLULU, Hawaii – Bromeliads – the monocot flowering plants that are popular in Hawaii – are being removed from planters along the H-1 Freeway near the Honolulu International Airport starting on July 24.
Too bad the plants have to be removed. Apparently, the mosquito problem is getting intense throughout the state. Bromeliads tend to collect water on their surfaces–a perfect breeding ground for these noxious, potentially deadly insects. Homeowners can do their part to control mosquitos by removing standing water from their property and emptying cans and jugs in their yards. Mosquitos carry malaria and dengue fever–two diseases which kill thousands of people every year. Aloha, Russ.
