The Mosquito Trap, is an environmentally-friendly alternative to pesticides, deployed in over 30 Countries. The Traps employ a unique combination of bio-actives, a Larvicide and a Fungus Registered in Fiji that have undergone stringent safety testing and are classified as low toxicity. The Trap combats mosquitoes that transmit Dengue, Chikungunya and Zika virus. All the mosquito larvae deposited in the traps are killed. Larvicide is carried by mosquitoes to nearby breeding sites and kills all larvae there. Exposed mosquitoes die in 5-10 days. Fungus Infection stops Dengue virus development in the mosquito and slows their biting activity. Mosquitoes get contaminated with larvicide and effectively target even small and hard-to-find breeding sites. This sustainable product is ideal for hotspots and problem areas where insecticide use is restricted or hampered by chemical resistance. The In2Care Mosquito Trap is made from durable polyethylene and lasts several years under tropical conditions. The gauze strip on the trap floater needs to be replaced every 4 weeks for optimal effectiveness, for which refill sachets can be purchased.
