Mosquitoes have been statistically proven to be the deadliest creature in the world. It is the most common pest found on construction sites, and even a single case of dengue fever is able to spread rapidly. If left unchecked, a company’s entire workforce can become infected in a matter of days. Fortunately, there are very effective ways to tackle the threat posed by mosquitoes.
Larvaciding is one of the most efficient ways of providing an environment safe from mosquitoes. The chemical Larvacide can be used to destroy the mosquito larvae and eventually the entire population in a given area can be eliminated over time. By understanding the enemy’s lifecycle and habitat, we are able to attack them at the right place, at the right time, with deadly precision.
Harnessing the use of BTI (Bacillus Thuringiensis Israelensis), a biological agent specially formulated to only target mosquito larvae specifically, allows for the destruction of mosquito larvae within 2-24 hours with ruthless efficiency. The substance is sprayed into the stagnant waters where mosquito larvae are found. The larvae then ingest the agent through filter feeding, destroying the gut of the larvae and resulting in death within a day. This non-toxic bacterium is not harmful to humans.
Misting is a safe and eco-friendly alternative to fogging. It involves a process of dispensing a thin mist of environmentally friendly chemicals across a large, open space. The tiny droplets of chemicals coat the surrounding vegetation without having adverse effects on flora and fauna. Both male and female mosquitoes feed on plant sap, and as a result, are killed when they come into contact with vegetation affected by the misting chemicals, which possess a longevity not easily worn down by weather conditions.
