Parasitological Consultation

The increase in international traffic and trade caused by globalisation has the worldwide effect of the spreading of undesirable medical “holiday souvenirs” or “package intruders” such as bedbugs, mosquitoes, fleas, lice, mites and ticks as well as cockroaches and ants.

Many of these small animals, which may come from Europe or overseas, are also able to adapt to comditions in Germany, with significant medical consequencea for humans.

In our parasitological consultations you can have samples examined by our expert.
For this we offer you:

  • An exact diagnostic examination with the goal of developing an appropriate and successful strategy for combating harmful pests
  • Individual advice on successful therapy.
  • Detailed evaluation certificates
