The concept of the Mosquito Den comes from the results of long conversations and discussions with professionals from eclectic backgrounds. These range from public health and veterinary entomology, human and veterinary medicine, environmental engineering, physics, and sanitation professionals who share a mutual concern: that the current approaches to insect-borne disease control are inadequate, not designed or implemented properly, and have failed to reduce vector-human or vector-animal contact and thus lessen their impact on the populations they affect.
These include mosquitoes, tsetse flies, biting flies, kissing bugs, sand flies, black flies, and filth flies. Our goal is to help our clients reduce or eliminate insects of public health and veterinary importance in the most expedient and environmentally sound manner, and in a way that results can be will be tangible while our work and our presence are virtually undetected.
Recommendations and strategies provided are tailored to the specific needs of the client and maintained confidential. They are designed to meet or exceed national and international standards and regulations, following recommendations of the World Health Organization and/or the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
Our services include:
•Vector control program, design, implementation,
•Capacity building and training on vector population management for in-house staff.
• Site evaluations and environmental impact assessments.
• Program monitoring and evaluations.
