Mars has long had the flying insect in our crosshairs because they annoy diners and retail patrons, hamper industrial operations, spread bacteria and viruses, and imply a lack of operational cleanliness (whether it is true or not). Now with the Zika virus’ link to mosquitos – while a health threat seemingly under control in North America... for now – we are given further proof that flying insects, be they mosquitos, flies or fleas, are a threat to the food supply and human health. Mars has been offering defense for foodservice and retail operators for over five decades and has had a team dedicated to creating best in class products to thwart the pesky flying annoyances that can also turn deadly. While the best defense against mosquito-borne illnesses is a vaccine, until we have one, we’ll continue to do our part provider owners and operators with the best invisible protection for entryways, dock doors and windows.
