Commercial Mosquito Elimination

Mosquito bites are a real source of irritation and impact guest satisfaction. They are also an increasing risk to public health as mosquitoes can transmit diseases such as Zika virus, dengue, yellow fever, malaria and others. Partner with Ecolab’s commercial mosquito elimination services to eliminate mosquito breeding sites to proactively reduce the risk of bites.


Taking the Bite Out of Mosquitoes

Media coverage on the spread of Zika virus, dengue and many other viruses as well as the link to microcephaly is impacting public perception of mosquitoes.

Customers are concerned about their risk and are demanding more proactive and effective measures.

Ecolab’s science-based Mosquito Program can help you reduce the risk of mosquito bites at your site through a comprehensive three-step program. Across field tests our enhanced mosquito program helped reduce mosquito pressure by up to 89%.

Ecolab's Mosquito Elimination Program Entails:

  • Inspect: thorough site inspection for current or potential mosquito activity, breeding and harborage sites.
  • Prevent: provide recommendations and target breeding sites with treatments that kill larvae and prevent mosquito larvae from ever developing.
  • Protect: provide treatments to potential adult resting sites that help provide long lasting protection against mosquitoes.

Our multifaceted, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach addresses both the potential breeding sites and locations where adults rest. The process starts with a comprehensive site survey followed by staff training on steps you can take to eliminate potential breeding sites. If service is needed, we will develop a customized plan utilizing a full range of treatment methods that maximize efficacy and have minimal environmental impact.

When you partner with Ecolab you can be confident you are getting innovative, science-based solutions delivered by rigorously trained pest specialists who deliver consistent and precise execution of service protocols; actionable insights to proactively prevent pest risk; customer support 24/7/365; and a strong commitment to customer partnership. Together, we protect success.
