MOSQUITO TRAP

How Does the INZECTO Mosquito Trap Kill Mosquitoes?


The traps patented design provides the ideal breeding ground for container breeding mosquitoes to lay their eggs. Studies have documented mosquitoes prefer to lay eggs in the INZECTO Mosquito Traps vs. other alternative breeding grounds minimizing the number of eggs mosquitoes will lay in alterative water containers.
The internal surface of the trap is covered with a patented slow release low dose pesticide mix. 90%+ of Adult female mosquitoes die on contact when they land on the interal surface of the mosquito trap. Some Mosquitoes can lay eggs before dyging inside the trap, in that case 100% of larvae are killed by the pesticide released in the water. The INZECTO Mosquito Trap prevents the spread of pesticide resitant mosquitoes by targetting and killing Adult Mosquitoes and Larvae.




What Types of Mosquitoes Does the INZECTO Mosquito Trap Kill?


The INZECTOtrap is designed for container breeding mosquitoes such the members of the aedes family - Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. These are the most common moquitoes found in urban areas and are daytime biters. Such species are not only annoying pests but also can carry dangerous diseases transmitted to humans and pets such as dengue, zika, west nile, chikungunya, equine encephalitis, yellow fever, canine filariasis and many others.




Does the INZECTO Trap Kill Mosquitoes Resistant to Insecticides?


Over time mosquitoes have become resistant to certain pesticides. The trap uses a dual approach to target adults and larvae with a mix of different pesticides and is highly effective in environments where mosquitoes have developed pesticide resistance.




Have the INZECTO MosquitoTraps Been Scientifically Proven to Kill Mosquitoes?


Yes. The traps have been developed and researched at the University of Florida and funded by the Pentagon’s Deployed War Fighter Protection Research Progrom. INZECTO Mosquito Traps have passed the most stringent efficacy tests required by International agencies.




How Quickly do INZECTO Traps Reduce the Mosquito Population?


Once properly installed, Traps will begin working immediately and continuously for 3 Months. Mosquito population visibly reduced within one week from deployment and continued population control for 3 months.




Do INZECTO MosquitoTraps Prevent the Spread of Vector-Borne Diseases?


Yes. Field test studies have proven the capacity to reduce / eliminate the spread of dangerous diseases transmitted to humans and pets such as dengue, zika, west nile, chikungunya, equine encephalitis, yellow fever, canine filariasis and others.




What is the maximum coverage area for Two (2) Traps?


3,000 Sq Ft – on average




How Long do the INZECTO Mosquito Traps Last?


Three (3) Months from the moment of installation / when water is added. You should replace your traps at the end of 3 months and dispose them.




How does this compare to traditional Pest Control Systems / ie spraying, fogging


• The traps DO NOT release pesticides in the environment
• The Inz-ECO Mosquito Trap kills ONLY mosquitoes
• The effectiveness of the trap lasts signigicantly longer than any other pest control treatment

ready to hatch at the first rain.
