Why We Love ULV

ULV (ultra-low volume) insecticide treatments have recently gained popularity as a highly effective and efficient method for controlling public health pests. Unlike traditional spraying methods, which rely on larger droplets and can result in significant wastage and environmental damage, ULV treatments use a highly concentrated and targeted solution that can be applied in very small quantities.

  • More targeted application: ULV treatments allow for highly targeted application, which means that the insecticide can be applied directly to the areas where it is needed rather than being dispersed over a wider area. This means that less insecticide is needed overall, reducing the environmental impact and cost of the treatment.
  • Greater penetration: Because ULV treatments use smaller droplets, they can penetrate deeper into crevices and other hard-to-reach areas, where pests like mosquitoes and flies tend to hide. This makes them highly effective at controlling pests in even the most challenging environments.
  • Reduced exposure risk: Because ULV treatments use smaller amounts of insecticide and are highly targeted, they can help reduce the risk of exposure to humans and other non-target species. This is particularly important in public spaces like parks and schools, where the risk of accidental exposure is high.
  • Faster treatment times: ULV treatments can be completed much more quickly than traditional spraying methods, which can take hours or even days. This means that public spaces can be treated more frequently and with less disruption to the public.
  • Cost-effective: ULV treatments use smaller amounts of insecticide and require less equipment (but more specialised) and labour, so they are often more cost-effective than traditional spraying methods.

Overall, ULV insecticide treatments offer several significant benefits over traditional spraying methods, making them an increasingly popular choice for controlling public health pests like mosquitoes, flies, and other disease-carrying insects. Using targeted, efficient, and cost-effective treatments, ULV insecticides are helping to keep public spaces safe and pest-free while minimising the environmental impact and risk to human health.

If you are facing an invasion of the little critters, we suggest calling the professionals. Current UK animal welfare regulations increasingly emphasise that a target species should be controlled to protect it from unnecessary suffering, even under the terms of pest control.
