Environmentally Responsible Mosquito Control in Pakistan

Over the past few years Pakistan’s Dengue Fever problems have been escalating to epidemic proportions. Dengue Fever is carried by Aedes mosquitoes.  Controlling mosquitoes in the larval stages in water sources is the best way to control Dengue Fever.  

I recently traveled to Lahore Pakistan to do a private mosquito control consult for Mr. Sethi and his family.  They sponsor two girl’s orphanages, which I also had the pleasure of visiting with the purpose of scouting the properties for mosquito breeding. Currently in Lahore, Pakistan it is the dry season, but by finding areas that will be major mosquito breeding sites when the rains arrive in a few months we were able to prevent a massive amount of mosquito breeding from occurring.

All the people I met in Pakistan where extremely friendly and helpful.  I found the art, parks and culture fascinating! Having dinner with Mr. Sethi and his extended family every evening was a special pleasure and I felt extremely welcome and well taken care of!

I’ve included some background data from the web below.
