INZECTO Mosquito Trap: Everything You Need to Know
Updated: Jan 19, 2022
How the INZECTO Mosquito Trap Works
The INZECTO Mosquito Trap is a Brand New Technology. Unlike traditional mosquito control methods where you spray an entire yard with pesticides, the INZECTO Mosquito Trap utilizes technology where the insecticides are all contained on the interior of the trap. The insecticides are released in very low microdose amounts- just enough to be able to kill mosquitoes. This feature also allows the consumer to use the product without having any direct contact with the insecticides.
The trap is activated by simply adding water. The water allows the insecticide embedded into the interior coating to be released. There is also a sachet of vegetation contained within the trap that makes the water smell stagnant. The mosquitoes are attracted to this smell as well as the colors of the trap, red and black. The mosquitos are lured into the trap and then killed.
INZECTO Mosquito Trap Patented Features
A distinctive feature of the INZECTO Mosquito Trap is its patented, unique design. There are ribs on the sides of the trap that serve several different functions. The ribs increase the surface area of the insecticides placed within the trap. They also provide areas for the mosquitoes to rest. The ribs reduce airflow and increase the humidity within the trap once water is added. The ribs and shape of the trap reduce evaporation and the need to continuously refill the trap with water.
An overflow spout prevents too much water from being added to the trap while allowing enough room at the top for the mosquitoes to land and rest. The weight of the water helps to keep the trap from tipping over when placed on the ground. The trap has a feature that allows it to be easily hung from a tree or other similar elevated location.
INZECTO Mosquito Trap Pet & Beneficial Insect Friendly
Another great characteristic of the INZECTO Mosquito Trap is that it is pet and other animal-friendly. The amount of insecticide used within the trap is such a low dose, there is no hazard to other animals should the water within spill out and be consumed by your dog for example. The tight grid on top of the trap also prevents people, pets, or other animals from getting to the part of the trap that has been treated with the insecticide. Additionally, beneficial insects are not attracted to this trap.
INZECTO Mosquito Trap Area Coverage
One trap will cover 1500 square feet of Shaded Area. It is recommended that two traps be placed out in the yard. A second trap provides additional coverage and doubles your chance of capturing the most mosquitoes out in your yard and outdoor areas. Additionally, because mosquitoes don’t lay all their eggs in one place- or in one container, a second trap allows another location for mosquitoes to attempt to reproduce.
Where to Place the INZECTO Mosquito Trap Outdoors
When it comes to placing your traps, you want to "think like a mosquito" and consider their behavior as well. Mosquitoes like to be in shaded areas that are protected from the wind. Conversely, if you were to place your traps in direct sunlight, the eggs that the mosquitoes lay inside the trap would get "boiled." Mosquitoes don’t like to lay their eggs in places where the chance of hatching into adults is impeded. It is for these reasons that the traps are most effectively placed in areas of shade.
Mosquitoes Targeted by the INZECTO Mosquito Trap
The INZECTO Mosquito Trap is designed to primarily target and kill Aedes mosquitoes. These are the mosquitoes found in urban areas and around residential homes and yards. The Aedes mosquitoes are very well known to be disease vectors capable of carrying and transmitting infectious diseases to other organisms. They can transmit dengue, chikungunya, Zika as well as yellow fever. The trap will help with the control of mosquitoes that spread disease.
INZECTO Mosquito Trap Effectiveness
The INZECTO Mosquito Trap is made to last for 90 days and provide approximately three months of continuous mosquito control or a typical mosquito season. The insecticide is protected and is set to slow release from the plastic polymer that’s coated on the inside of the trap. This product provides long-term and effective control whereas other mosquito control products are only temporary. As soon as the spraying stops, the protection is also lost. This product provides a longer-term control and solution.
Not only does the trap kill adult mosquitoes, but it also targets the eggs and the larvae that are laid in the water. There is a larvicide inside the trap that prevents the eggs from hatching into larvae. If you were to pour the water out and see larvae still alive inside the trap, they will soon die when they pupate or turn into an adult, biting mosquitoes.
INZECTO Mosquito Trap Maintenance
Trap Maintenance is super simple. The water initially added to the trap for activation, never needs to be changed out. You only need to top off the trap with water as needed. The trap is effective for three months. There is a calendar on the trap for easy time tracking. Simply mark the calendar when you first put the trap out. After three months, you can dispose of the trap and replace it.
INZECTO Mosquito Trap Green Features
This product is made from recycled plastic and is 100% recyclable. After three months, when it's no longer active for mosquito control, you can discard the used trap into your recycling and have it recycled. Ideally, more traps could be made out of it.
INZECTO Mosquito Trap Residential & Commercial Applications
The INZECTO Mosquito Trap can be used in a wide variety of areas. For instance, any place where mosquitoes are a problem is a good place to put a trap. You may have problems on golf courses, around commercial buildings, apartment complexes, or residential homes. You can use them just about anywhere you can think mosquitoes would be.
This trap is also compatible with other forms of mosquito control. For instance, if the city comes down the street and sprays for mosquitoes with their fogging unit, this will only enhance the effectiveness of the trap because there will be fewer mosquitoes left and the trap will fill in once the ULV mist is gone.
