Mortein introduces mosquito-killer boards

LAHORE  –  Mortein has introduced innovative mosquito-killer boards to reduce the incidence of dengue and other mosquito-borne diseases in Pakistan. The killer-boards are capable of killing several species of Aedes mosquitoes every day. The initiative is in continuance of their ‘Dengue Se Paak Pakistan’ campaign aimed at reducing dengue along with other mosquito-borne diseases across Pakistan. In the past 6 years, Pakistan has witnessed massive outbreaks of dengue with over 65,000 cases reported nationwide. In 2016 alone, 3,000 cases were reported in Punjab, while Sindh accounted for over 2,000 cases of dengue victims.
Most of the cases originated from semi-urban areas and major metropolitan cities while unplanned settlements and rural areas equally fell prey to the consequences of the disease.
Shahzeb Mahmood, CEO of RB Pakistan, makers of Mortein, stated in this regard, “RB is always committed to providing innovative solutions to improve the health and hygiene situation in the country. Currently, there is high incidence of mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue. These mosquito-killing billboards are yet another testament to our pledge for a dengue-free Pakistan.”
