A leading national chain of hospitals chose us for their pest management programme in the Mumbai region.
What did PECOPP do?
PECOPP worked with the hospital administration from the project stage to map pest risks and develop a mitigation plan. Thick vegetation around the new hospital had an infestation of malaria-causing mosquitoes. Our team took extra caution to make a pest management programme for this healthcare customer whose patients needed protection from disease-causing mosquitoes.
What did we find?
We found that the undulating grounds within the property led to water stagnation and facilitated mosquito breeding within the property. Adult mosquitoes entered the hospital through many doors and windows, which people would open many times during the day.
What was the overall impact?
Mosquitoes are hard pests to manage, and only an integrated pest management (IPM) plan like the one we used at the above hospital helped us keep mosquitoes in check to our customer’s satisfaction.
Our proudest moment at this hospital was when a patient commented that they could see mosquitoes everywhere in their city barring at the hospital where PECOPP was the service provider.
The hospital management also appreciated our team’s role in enhancing the hygiene and safety of their prestigious hospital using quick and effective methods.
What did our team deliver?
Our mosquito management plan focused on the elimination of water stagnation to ensure no mosquito breeding would take place on the hospital premises. Besides, the hospital checked mosquito entry by installing air curtains above doors.
Further, PECOPP cold-fogged the hospital’s exteriors with a new generation water-based emulsion of the pesticide, Aqua K-Othrin. Indoors, our team used Icon-WP to treat corridors and common areas, where mosquitoes gained entry, evading defensive barriers. We treated the foliage of plants in the garden against resting mosquitoes. We also used Bi-larv for larvicidal treatment to curb the development of larvae into adult mosquitoes.
