Tackling Mosquito-Borne Diseases during El Niño with Solutions from Central Life Sciences

The World Health Organization (WHO) is expanding its efforts to tackle the potential increased spread of viral diseases such as dengue, Zika and chikungunya associated with the El Niño weather phenomenon. Recognizing the growing concerns regarding El Niño's impact on disease transmission, the WHO is implementing proactive measures to safeguard global health.

There is increasing concern surrounding the prevalence and expansion of mosquito species that transmit these viral diseases, such as Aedes aegypti and A. albopictus. With extended residual products from Central Life Sciences, vector control professionals can implement effective strategies to reduce the risk of disease transmission and help safeguard public health.

Extended Residual Products for Enhanced Control

Mosquito Abatement Districts and Public Health Officials need mosquito control products that provide extended residual effectiveness and reduce the need for frequent or repeated applications. Central Life Sciences understands this pressing need and offers a diverse range of solutions that provide extended residual control against mosquitoes. This product line includes granular insect growth regulators, mosquito control briquets in various shapes and sizes, as well as dual-active mosquito control products. These products are specifically designed to offer long-lasting control of mosquitoes.

Power Mist Sprayer Applications

As unique mosquito larvicides, Altosid® Liquid Larvicides offer a mode of action that prevents adult mosquito emergence from standing water, including those species capable of transmitting Zika virus, chikungunya and dengue fever. Altosid® Liquid Larvicides are labeled for aerial and ground applications, through power Mist Sprayers, in locations that require large-area coverage.

Power Mist Sprayer applications are designed to provide extensive coverage over large areas. Altosid® Liquid Larvicides can be applied from either standard ULV sprayers or large power Mist Sprayers to provide exceptional control across a wide range of habitats. Terrestrial sites such as backyard water-holding containers, temporary floodwater, and irrigated pastures can be treated as effectively as more permanent mosquito breeding areas like swamps and salt marshes.

By utilizing products from Central Life Sciences, Mosquito Abatement Districts and Public Health Officials can effectively control mosquito populations and reduce the risk of mosquito-borne diseases during the El Niño weather phenomenon. These solutions provide a proactive approach to mosquito control, promoting public health and well-being.
