Integrated Mosquito Management

Get Your Home Inspected

For many of us, mosquito is known as a tiny and pesky insect that causes itchy, and irritating red bumps on our skin. It is often overlooked for its puny size and fragility.

Mosquitoes however, are more than meet the eyes as they have caused over 100,000 dengue cases and at least 200 deaths every year since 2014, making them the number one public enemy in Malaysia.

As mosquitoes are pervasive pests, it can be quite challenging to get rid of them by yourself because they could fly in from anywhere. The first step to getting rid of mosquitoes effectively will be to carefully examine your property, especially storage areas, windows, water containers, and drains. An inspection by professionals can help to ascertain the mosquito problem and ensure that the most effective solution is carried out.

Choose Your Method

DIY or Professional?

If you think those off shelves mosquito spray can help you control mosquitoes for good, think again. You had most probably killed mosquitoes whenever on sight. But what about the the larvae and pupae that you did not manage to spot? Although DIY solutions may seem like a quick fix for your mosquito problem but here are some of the risks you may be concerned of:

  1. Root cause of the problem may not be treated — It may repel mosquitoes for a short period of time but not completely expel them from your home or business premises
  2. Safety risk — Inhalation of aerosol spray increases the risk of diarrhoea in infants as well as headache and depression in mothers especially. Repeated use can cause damage to the brain, affecting your memory ability
  3. Risk of spreading the infestation - If the root cause of the mosquito problem is not solved, it may worsen the situation as the infestation can spread anytime hence resulting in a severe infestation
  4. Effectiveness not guaranteed — As mosquito species continue to evolve, they are capable of building resistant to outmoded insecticide thus some mosquito spray may not even work

When it comes to getting rid of mosquitoes in the long run, you are advised to only seek for professional help because they:

  1. Understand the species and habits of mosquito, and know where to find the infestation and how to manage
  2. Apply only safe and approved chemicals, ensuring the safety of you, your family, and employees
  3. Take proactive approach to managing an infestation hence reducing the risk of the infestation spreading
  4. Adopt the Integrated Mosquito Management (IMM) programme which is proven to be a holistic and effective mosquito control approach to completely get rid of mosquitoes
  5. Offer professional and sound recommendations to help you better prevent mosquitoes from being attracted to your property

  • Getting Rid of Mosquitoes with Integrated Mosquito

    Our Integrated Mosquito Management (IMM) is a specially designed, holistic programme proven to be an effective approach to mosquito control in the long run. It is targeted at every stage of the mosquito life cycle, through a simple 4-steps programme which includes removing potential mosquito breeding grounds, larviciding, water-based fogging, and using adult mosquito traps. This integrated approach can effectively get rid of mosquitoes from the get-go.

    Eliminate Mosquito Breeding Grounds

    • Eliminate potential breeding grounds by frequently checking and removing stagnant water collected by unused items in the premises.
    • Common breeding grounds for Aedes mosquitoes include flower pot plate, unused container and hardened soil of potted plant.
    • Reducing potential breeding sites in your premises is crucial so that mosquitoes will have less sites to breed and this will increase effectiveness of larvicide treatment.

    Larviciding

    • It is a treatment to control the development of mosquitoes’ larvae.
    • Larvicide treatment at mosquito hotspots can help to reduce infestation.
    • A thorough inspection for any potential breeding ground will be conducted before we carry out the larvicide treatment.
    • Thermal Fogging (Water and Diesel based)

      • Thermal fogging can be carried out to eliminates adult mosquitoes, hence breaking the breeding cycle.
      • It is essential to fog at the right time when the mosquitoes are active for an effective control.
      • There are 2 types of fogging, namely water-based thermal fogging and diesel-based thermal fogging.
      • Both are equally effective in eliminating the harbouring and breeding of adult mosquitoes surrounding your premises compound.
      • Water-based fogging is recommended due to its properties that are effective, environmental friendly and safe.
      • Water-based fogging does not produce carbon emission and releases minimal rate of smoke, diminishing foggy environment for improved visibility, safety and health.

      Use of Mosquito Traps

      1. Ovitrap - attracts mosquito to lay eggs inside then stunt eggs growth
      2. Adult Mosquito Trap - distributes scent to lure and suck mosquito into trap, mosquito will then dehydrate and die
      3. Indoor UV LED Mosquito Trap - uses LED light to attract mosquito into trap
      • Effective against mosquitoes species such as Aedes and Culex.
      • Trapped adult mosquitoes eventually die in traps, breaking the breeding life-cycle.
      • It is also used for monitoring mosquito activities.

      Ultra Low Volume (ULV) Misting

      • Chemical intervention through ULV Misting is another way to eliminate adult mosquitoes which also helps in breaking the breeding cycle.
      • This method can cover areas from small to a huge location and is applicable to indoor areas.

      The programme can be customised in accordance to the level of infestation at your premises.
