Spiny caterpillars on the Town Square sea grape plants

    During this hot weather, a large number of yellow spiny caterpillars have appeared and are eating the leaves of the sea grapes at the Town Square.  An official, Rolando Brito, explained on social networks that these are not the caterpillars known regionally as "Chamayquín", tho he didn't clarify whether these were dangerous or not when they come in contact with humans. Residents are familiar with the Chamayquin caterpillars which have toxic hairs, that cause skin problems, so it is recommended that children be kept away from areas where they are found. 
    Tourism officials said that the infestation was detected by Isla Mujeres municipal workers when they were pruning the plants. They advised tourists and residents to take the necessary precautions to prevent contact with the caterpillars, which are eating the leaves of the sea grapes, causing the main plant to have no leaves. It is expected that the municipal Ecology department will initiate fumigation programs to prevent the infestation from advancing. It is noted that in the area for the past decade there has been decimation of wild cactus and coconut palms. The cactus most was controlled at that time after SAGARPA initiated an campaign, as well as the insects that damaged palm trees and the leaves of other affected plants, at that time.

Concerns about poor appearance of the old hospital

   There are concerns about the appearance of the old hospital presenting a poor image to tourists and for the neighboring businesses. The vacated building of ~600 square meters is located 100 meters from the Town Hall on Guerrero Avenue by the malecon. The property of 6000 square meters in owned by the government of Quintana Roo. It has become a place for indigents to hang out, and there are concerns about insects and vermin in the weeds that have grown up. The building was vacated when the new Community Hospital opened on December 16, 2015. Some entrepreneurs have proposed that the property be used for a public parking lot.

The problem of accumulated garbage at the Trash Transfer Facility should be resolved soon

   The new director of Public Services, Pablo Moreno Povedano, reported about efforts that are being made to transfer the accumulated garbage from the Trash Transfer Facility to the landfill on the mainland in the Continental Zone. The municipal government expects that the crossing of the two vehicle ferries will be 'regularized' soon and they have made an agreement with the ferry company to transport two vehicles daily with a capacity of 17 tons, and another 40 tons every two days.
    Mr. Moreno Povedano reminded residents to pack their trash well before placing it in containers in the colonias, to prevent stray animals from spreading it around, which frequently occurs. It is noted that the form director of Public Services, Jose Rios resigned to support one of the candidates. 

Whale sharks
     The tour services for about 3000 tourists to observe and swim with the whale sharks began this week without any problems, with good weather, and less wind, out of the southeast at 10km/hr on Monday morning. The National Weather Service (SMN) forecasts good weather this week, until Friday, when unstable weather is expected. This will allow the permit holders to provide their services to experience the largest fish in the world.
   The Mexican Navy actively monitors the tour operators, to ensure their documents are fully up to day with the current regulations, for the protection of the species.
