Vector Control

Vector control is carried out against mosquitoes, fleas and ticks. Integrated Vector Management is the best approach that takes into account the available health infrastructure, resources and integrates all available effective measures, whether chemical, biological, or environmental.


Mosquitoes are small flying insects that often bite and are annoying. The females require blood from humans or other animals to develop eggs. Several species readily attack people and can transmit microbial organisms that cause human diseases such as encephalitis and malaria. The objective of mosquito management is to keep mosquito populations below levels where they become a nuisance or a public health problem leading to an outbreak of diseases. Mosquito larve-eating fish can be an important control measure. The most effective control methods are those targeted against the larval stage of the life cycle of mosquito.



Fleas are parasites that live on the bodies of dogs, cats, rats and other rodents. Recent advances in molecular research indicate cat fleas are capable of transmitting a murinelike typhus disease in humans, cat flea rickettsiosis. New, safer, and more effective products aimed at controlling adult fleas must be used. Flea-Management must occur in conjunction with regular, thorough cleaning of pet resting areas indoors and out. Once fleas infest a home, control will require a vigilant program that includes vacuuming, eliminating fleas on pets, and cleaning up outdoor locations where pets rest. Chemical control is also very effective.



Lyme disease caused by ticks is a potentially serious disease and can be localized or affect multiple bodily systems. Ticks are also parasites and seek their hosts from late fall to spring, but are most active during summer. The timely application of herbicides to remove unwanted or evasive woody and herbaceous vegetation effectively controls the off-host survival of several tick life-stages. Hand or pump sprayers using selective herbicides are generally effective for home yard perimeters. If a human dwelling is infested with ticks, the same should be treated chemically and the pet animal should also be de-ticked.


We use only water based chemicals which are odourless and very safe to humans. These are manufactured by large Indian as well as Multinational companies like Bayer, Rallis, FMC, etc. Some of the chemicals are as under:


Deltamethrin is a synthetic pyrethroid manufactured in various formulations (including emulsifiable concentrates, wettable powders, granules, and dusts for crack and crevice application) to control a wide variety of indoor and outdoor pests.


Fipronil is one of the newest names on the market for pest control, effective in the elimination of ants, roaches, termites, and other common pests. 


Cypermethrin is commonly used as a crack and crevice or spot treatment for residual and contact control of spiders, ants, carpenter ants, scorpions, German cockroaches, ladybugs, carpenter bees, and yellow jackets.


Products with Bifenthrin can be applied in four basic areas. Indoors - including food-handling areas like restaurant kitchens. On and around building exteriors. Plants and shrubs Lawns.

Lambda Cyhalothrin

Lambda-cyhalothrin and other pyrethroids act as powerful poison to the central nervous system. Once poisoned, the insect's nerve cells become excited, causing paralysis and preventing normal feeding and grooming activities.


Glyphosate is a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide that kills weeds and is especially effective against perennials. Glyphosate can be sprayed over plants or crops and absorbed through the leaves, injected into the trunks or stumps of trees, or broadcast.
