Warm weather has arrived which means mosquito season is upon us. Your summer doesn’t have to be filled with buzzing and biting, though. It is possible to drastically reduce the mosquito population on your property. How so?
We recommend the In2Care Mosquito Trap. The In2Care Mosquito Trap is made of durable plastic and uses water with an odor lure to attract egg-laying mosquitoes. Once inside, mosquitoes contact the specially treated gauze near the water surface and get contaminated with a larvicide and a fungus. They then fly out of the trap while carrying the larvicide on their legs which they transport and contaminate several breeding sites around the trap with. This kills larvae in small and hard to find breeding sources. The fungus kills the mosquito within a few days before it can spread disease.
How effective is it? Field efficacy studies confirmed that the fungus effectively kills mosquitoes several days after gauze exposure, which allows them to spread larvicide to other sites before dying. There were massive reductions in adult mosquitoes produced in other sites near the trap: more than 80% were inhibited from emerging as adult mosquitoes.
How many do you need? Each trap can control the mosquito population over an area of about 4,300 square feet.
