Emergency Response

 

Vector Disease Control International (VDCI) is your experienced partner - able to walk you through every step of a responsible mosquito control effort. When an emergency such as a hurricane or disease outbreak strikes, you cannot afford to make mistakes with mosquito control. There is only a short amount of time before mosquitoes become a significant health risk to a displaced public and relief workers. 

Starting with Hurricane Bonnie in 1998, VDCI has supported relief efforts after hurricanes and other natural disasters for over 20 years - reducing mosquito populations and bringing much needed relief to communities.

Our team has also worked with communities when a mosquito-borne disease threat exists - including a partner with the CDC to assist U.S. Territories with their public health efforts to defend the population against the threat of Zika. The spotlight on Zika virus acted as the catalyst for a greater understanding of mosquitoes and the diseases they can transmit. Visit the Vector-Borne Diseases section of the VDCI website to learn about the origins, symptoms, and vectors of  several mosquito-borne diseases.
