Life on earth depends on a very complex set of interactions between different life forms. Examination of the extent to which humans disrupt this arrangement is a relatively recent concern but one that is rapidly growing. The direct and indirect effects of pesticides on wildlife, waterways and the environment at large may be harmful and are entirely undesirable. We take extra care to minimize the risk to non-target insects & the environment.
As a leader in the industry, we believe that we have a moral obligation to respond to this new paradigm—to adopt a business model of increased accountability and to set-up environmental leadership in our industry and entire SME sector in Asia and the World.

The Exterminators (Pvt) Ltd took the initiative in May 2017 to permanently stop outdoor fogging against mosquitoes and all kinds of pests.
Thermal fogging is proven to be ineffective method to control mosquitoes and it also creates significant environmental imbalance by killing non-target insect species such as bees, moths, butterflies, dragon flies etc., and has serious negative impact on the pollination process.
Today we see a few butterflies, dragon flies and bees in the city, ten years ago we saw many, ten years from now, there will be nothing if we don’t act now.
