Have you ever wondered what is the deadliest animal in the world? You might have given a variety of answers ranging from snakes to sharks, or perhaps the alligator? In actual fact, the deadliest animal in the world is the mosquito! It might seem impossible that something so miniscule can kill so many people but it’s true. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), mosquito bites result in the deaths of more than 1 million people every year.

This fact, and many more practical tips and easy to-apply solutions, is just one of the insights that you can get from the Bayer Dengue Learning Lab which is available free of charge to the general public. Due to the rising spread of dengue and Zika virus, the Dengue Learning Lab was on display at the Bayer booth for participants to understand more about the disease and what people can do to prevent mosquito-borne diseases.

At the Pest Summit 2016 held from 18-20 August, the Environmental Science team launched Level 2 of the Bayer Learning Lab for the professional pest management industry, featuring more content on specialized pests and techniques for experienced technicians.

Mr. Lee Teck Peng, Bayer Environmental Science Country Manager for Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei said, “We are proud to be celebrating how far Bayer has come for the Environment Science business today, beyond our wide array of quality products and service to our customers. As a leader in the pest management industry, we are also committed to build on the success of Bayer Learning Lab that delivers value-added content to help increase the professionalism among technicians involved in the pest management industry.”

During this three-day event, Bayer also celebrated 15 years achievement of Agenda® 10 SC in Singapore. Launched in May 2001, Agenda® 10 SC is the only non-repellent termiticide that has a 15-year excellent track record in structural protection in Singapore. It is also the first termiticide to obtain Singapore Environment Council’s Green Label certification as an “Environmentally Preferred Termiticide”. The highlight of the celebration was when we presented our Agenda® 10 SC partners each with a certificate of appreciation and Agenda® 10 SC commemorative booklets.

Pest Summit is a biennial international convention and exhibition for the pest management industry. It gathers stakeholders in the pest management industry across South East Asia; such as pest management professionals, the suppliers of chemicals and equipment, researchers, academics, government officials and delegates to share the latest research findings, technology and experience.
