Clarke has been providing mosquito control services since the company was founded in 1946, and we've been called in by federal, state or local agencies on nearly every weather or disease-related mosquito control emergency since West Nile Virus was originally detected in the United States for the first time in 1999. When we were asked to respond to the spread of Zika across Miami-Dade County, Florida, and Brownsville, Texas, in 2016 and 2017, we forged a truly unique understanding of the intense operational response requirements that existing mosquito control programs face when up against a disease or weather situation. From our experience on the mosquito control operational front lines, we developed SITE Guard to offer our customers the on-demand ability to scale up or supplement existing programs when operational demands are too great for their existing resources.
More than any other service provider, Clarke understands the science of fighting vector diseases through surveillance, inspection, treatment and education methodologies.
Our SITE Guard™ service program provides a la carte supplemental services to existing mosquito control programs.
What began as a 2-person crew assisting Miami Dade County Mosquito Control Division with Zika-related response work in May 2016, turned into 45 2-person teams working seven days a week, a surveillance crew of seven, plus operations and supervisory management staff on-site. Watch here to see the timeline of events and what it meant to be frontline fighters against Zika.
A Biology Block™ refers to the complete block of homes in immediate proximity to a confirmed or suspected human case of a mosquito-borne disease like Zika.
