Meeting Set To Discuss Controversial Use Of Naled In SFL Mosquito Fight

A Miami-Dade judge has issued a mandatory meeting Monday, to discuss the continued use of the controversial pesticide Naled to combat mosquitoes that may carry the Zika virus.

At 2 p.m., officials from the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County will meet with two Miami Beach residents who filed a lawsuit over the use of Naled.

The Environment Protection Agency is currently reviewing the future use of the pesticide as part of a mandated 15-year review process.

During the meeting, all sides will be able to have their positions heard.

Officials hope to determine a strategy for future fighting against the pest -- a fight that was amplified during the Zika outbreak in both the cities of Miami, Miami Beach and other areas across the county. 

The mosquito borne illness has been found to cause medical issues, especially for pregnant women and their unborn children.
