General perception on public fogging is that toxic smell and smoke (produce by mixing a chemical called Ethylene Glycol) are important factors in killing insect pests such as mosquitoes & flies.

As the saying goes, Little Knowledge Is Dangerous:

Foul toxic smell (typically generated by the solvent such as Diesel, Xylene, etc.) does not equate to efficacy (effectiveness of killing insects); we do not kill insects by ‘choking’ the insects with toxic smell;

Note:

Diesel - the major effect of (human) exposure to diesel is giddiness, headache, central nervous system depression, possible of eyes, nose and lungs. Signs of kidney & liver damage may be delayed.

Xylene - causes (human) central nervous system depression resulting in headaches, dizziness and nausea; continued inhalation may result in unconsciousness and/or death.

Information on Diesel and Xylene are abstracted from Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) by manufacturers & accessible to public.

Neither is smoke or haze produced by ethylene glycol. Exposure to excess amounts of ethylene glycol can damage the kidneys, heart, and nervous system.

Ethylene glycol has been found in at least 34 of the 1,416 National Priorities List sites identified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Typical solvent (Diesel/Xylene) used to dissolve and dilute pesticide are already highly poisonous, on top of that we are adding ethylene glycol making the concoction worst for mammals (human being & pets) & birds.

The irony is that, those 2 factors above do not kill insects but polluting the environment, affecting the health of mammals & birds. The issue at hand is to kill insect pests such as mosquitoes and flies, not you & your love ones.

Let’s not fool ourselves; the battles with insect pests such as mosquitoes and flies will carry on as long as we exist in this planet. While trying to control the infestations associated with the insects, it does not serve us any good if the process is harming us & our love ones as well.

Biovectrol® range of products is water-based, multi-functional & safe providing a holistic approach to manage and control the long term dilemma with insect pests while keeping the environment, mammals & birds safe.

Taking a typical example when we spray or fog the environment against insects such as housefly, cockroach, mosquito etc, it never is sufficient just to kill the insects simply because whichever area those insects has crawl through or landed, bacterial and germs have already been spread to those surfaces. When you spray and fog the environment, you will also sanitize those surface areas that have been ‘touch’ by them.

Secondly, even those insects were death after spraying or fogging, those germ and bacteria continue to live inside the bodies. Hence you need the Disinfectant property to exterminate those bacteria and germs as well.

Thirdly, it is also important to be able to kill the larvae in the environment thus breaking the breeding cycles. The Herbal Extracts provide that special effect to eradicate the larvae.

Fourthly, acting as Repellent, even those insects that have not been in contact with the solution, it will compel them away, hence creating a shield that protect the environment and making it truly pest free.

Finally, Bio‐X® / Biovectrol® residue that have been left behind after the spraying or fogging, is able to continue stay effective for days protecting us against the pests.

As Fungicide, not only Bio‐X® / Biovectrol® kills the fungus & mould but also remove the bad odour that was created by the fungus, mould & bacterial.

Most of the Deodorisers and/or Air Freshener available today are alcohol based added with artificial perfume. The alcohol is supposed to act as “disinfectant” and the artificial perfume is just trying to cover up the existing bad odour in the environment. Hence, when applying those commercial Deodorisers or Disinfectant, you are actually making the situation worse by inhaling alcohol, artificial perfume and the existing bad odour.

Bio‐X® / Biovectrol® exterminates the fungus, mould & bacterial that is the source of the problem and neutralise the bad odour with Natural Lemon or Pine fragrance.
