Controlling nuisance biting and disease transmission by blood-feeding insects
Whether they are vectors of deadly diseases or simply prevent normal livelihood, blood-feeding insects impose a heavy burden on many human populations. Diseases such as Malaria, Dengue and Chikungunya which are transmitted by mosquitoes threaten human health on a global scale and often require expensive disease control programme. Elsewhere, the sheer number of bites by bugs, flies or mosquitoes impacts human activities, local economic development and tourism; forcing people to live behind physical or chemical layers of protection.
Sustainable Vector Control Solutions Ltd is a consultancy firm that brings together the expertise of world-class medical entomologists and vector control specialists to address the needs of governmental and non-governmental organisations and the private sector to reduce the burden of biting insects and the diseases they transmit.
A focus on sustainability
We are committed to finding solutions that are adapted to the socioeconomical and environmental context in which your vector control interventions must take place to ensure that these achieve their short and longer term objectives. This includes advising on how to put the right structure, people and relationships in place to actively support your current vector control needs without compromising future capacities.
Minimizing environmental impact is at the heart of our ethos.
Thus we will strive to develop vector control programmes that have the least negative impact on the environment and the most benefits to individuals and communities. Sustainable Vector Control Solutions Ltd is particularly interested in integrated pest management using biological, physical, genetic and chemical control implementations and designed to decrease our reliance on pesticides.
