On the Tróia Peninsula in Carvalhal, Portugal, the Quinta da Comporta hotel is a 5-star hotel and well-being resort, set in the heart of a nature reserve conducive to tranquillity and a top end experience surrounded by lush rice fields.
Near to the coast and crossed by the Sado river, the Comporta region is the perpetual target of many swarms of mosquitoes. The Quinta da Comporta hotel resort is dedicated to relaxation and tranquillity so the mosquito bites became a real nuisance for the business.
As well as naturally humid areas, the site study revealed outdoor spaces favourable to mosquito breeding and outlined the areas to be protected as a priority, such as the apartments, outdoor pool and restaurant terrace.
In 2019, Qista installed 11 traps to create an mosquito repellent barrier around the hotel and protect holidaymakers from any risk of bites.
A large number of mosquitoes were caught in the first few weeks and the number of mosquito bites dropped dramatically in the surroundings of this top end hotel. Feedback from the hotel resort managers is that the Qista solution is a complete success that both ensures its clients can enjoy a nuisance-free stay and reassures them regarding the transmission risk by mosquitoes of vector-borne diseases, while respecting the coastal ecosystems.
