Mosquito Control


Mosquitoes in Greece is a problem with significant impact on quality of life and public health. Extensive rice fields and wetlands adjacent to settlements, combined with favorable temperature conditions, misuse of irrigation water and wastewater, they all create an ideal environment for mosquito development. Particularly in northern Greece, where the 90% of rice fields and 70% of wetlands of the country occur, the problem in some areas is extremely important.

Integrated Pest Protection

Seven steps for your protection:

Pest Inspection

A thorough facility inspection is conducted focusing on the usual activity points of pests (entry points, food and water sources, harborage) as well as their critical control points such as customer or employees aggregation areas, food preparation and packaging areas etc.

Pest Identification

Pests require a wide variety of application methods according to species characteristics, developmental stages and patterns. Species identification is crucial for the successful choice and application of treatment methods and pesticides..

Sanitation Consultation

Annual reports on the conditions that favor the presence of pests in your facilities and the surrounding environment and how to avoid them are composed by ECODEVELOPMENT.

Monitoring – Record keeping

The installation of pest monitoring and control network by placing proper bait stations is necessary for the success of an IPM program. This requires an ongoing monitoring of Pest activity and the documentation of the relevant measures taken for any regulatory private or public agency.

Facility layout analysis

IPM focuses on the critical control points of every facility. These points are determined in cooperation with the customer, considering structural and functional characteristics of the facility. These points are monitored with the appropriate bait stations and are presented clearly on a facility layout and marked with different colors.

Customized Solutions

We develop versatile stations adapted to the structural and functional requirements of customer's facilities. An IPM protection program must consider factors such as the position of the facility, the climate, the age of the building, the production procedures etc. A thorough inspection and analysis of the above factors is important in order to provide a customized protection plan for our customers.

Application Strategy

This is determined to a great extend by legal, financial, health and safety thresholds. In any case non chemical control methods are always considered first. All pesticides used are approved by the relevant regulatory authority (Ministry of Agriculture) and their use complies with the current national legislation. The use of pesticides in areas where food is processed is kept to the absolute minimum necessary to treat active infestations. In any case, pesticides are used in such a way to prevent accidental food contamination, ingestion by human or other non target organisms
