Additional Information

Floater: Component of the trap that holds the biocide-treated gauze strip in place

The In2Care Mosquito Trap is a novel tool to combat Aedes mosquitoes that transmit Zika. This unique product takes advantage of the mosquito life cycle and breeding habits. Once inside, mosquitoes contact the specially treated gauze near the water surface and get contaminated with a larvicide and a fungus. We exploit the fact that Aedes like to divide their eggs over multiple sites; by letting them fly out of the trap whilst carrying larvicide on their legs. They transport the larvicide and contaminate several breeding sites around the trap. In this way, we can kill larvae in small and hard to find breeding sources. The mosquito also gets infected with an insect-specific fungus that can block Zika virus replication and kills her before she can spread disease.

A complete In2Care Mosquito Trap requires the following parts:

  • Durable 5L water reservoir / Pot
  • Lid with click-on mechanism
  • Floater (to carry the gauze strip)
  • Green time indicator cap
  • Refill sachets (gauze, bioactives & attractant tablets) for reactivation

**Be sure to ask for all parts when placing your order.
