Microbes are tiny living things that are found all around us and are too small to be seen by the naked eye. They live in water, soil, and in the air. The human body is home to millions of these microbes too, also called microorganisms. Some microbes make people sick, while others are important to the health.

The most common types are bacteria, viruses and fungi. There are also microbes called protozoa. These are tiny living things that are responsible for diseases such as toxoplasmosis and malaria. Bacteria are single-cell organisms. Some bacteria need oxygen to survive and others do not. Some love the heat, while others prefer a cold environment.

Marlon Ferreira, Founder/Managing Director of The Exterminators (Pvt) Ltd said: “Businesses today are expected to be more transparent and to actively participate to help the community and also to make positive changes to improve the environment. As a leader in the pest management industry and the SME sector in Sri Lanka, we believe that we have a moral obligation to respond to this new paradigm. Our philosophy is to creatively destruct the environment via constant innovation to find novel and sustainable solutions by emphasizing on the triple bottom-line concept to create a circular economy by doing it right and doing it well”.
