IF the need for mosquito spraying arises again, we will not hesitate to help.

That was the reassurance given by Vuda Marina general manager Adam Wade as the company undertook a mosquito spraying exercise at Viseisei Village, Navatau settlement and Vuda District School on Wednesday.

Mr Wade said spraying at Viseisei Village took close to five hours.

"We started the mosquito spraying at 9.30am and finished at around 2.30pm," he said.

"The spraying at Navatau settlement took about one and a half hours and we waited until school finished to start the spraying at Vuda District School.

"Initially, we thought we would start off the day at the school but we decided to wait for the students to go home."

He said three marina workers were involved in the spraying and the project cost the marina about $500.
