According to various resources, the Kemari gas incident has led to the death of nearly 20 people with hundreds of people admitted to hospitals across the city.
This criminal incident was attributed to the unprofessional fumigation services, where, a dangerous Methyl Bromide gas was used by a fumigation agency, which led to so many deaths and hospitalization in the country.
At Elite Services, we have been advocating the importance of Integrated Pest Management services in Pakistan for a long time. In fact, the sole reason for us to enter Pakistan’s fumigation industry was due to the fact that we feel there was a serious need for ethical and professional fumigation services, which were severely lacking.
This incident due to the unethical and unprofessional approach by a Karachi based pest management company is clear evidence of why people/industries and the government need to strictly regularize the fumigation industry and adapt international standards as a way to avoid any future losses.
At Elite Services, we bring in an international experience in Integrated Pest Management services IPM, where the focus isn’t to spray harmful chemicals that cause massive pollution and potential deaths (like in case of Kemari gas incident). Instead, the integrated pest management approach is all about taking proactive measures biological, environmental to minimize chances of pest infestation. Even when there is a dire need for chemical use, it’s about using the best-suited chemicals that eliminate only the desired organism, while not harming the environment and living beings in the surrounding.
Thereby, we would like to encourage the authorities and industries/businesses and customers to always choose a fumigation company that has the experience, skills, and certifications to deliver environmentally safe and human-friendly pest control services.
