In2Care® - A multi-impact tool against mosquitoes that transmit Dengue, Chikungunya, Yellow Fever and Zika virus.
In2Care® Mosquito Traps can be placed outdoors at a recommended density of 1/400 m2 (10 Traps per acre) and be maintained every 4 weeks using refill
sachets. The product lends itself perfectly for use in vector control programs, particularly in hotspot areas, and by professional pest management companies for Aedes mosquito control services at resorts, hotels and residential sites.
The In2Care® Mosquito Trap is made of durable plastic and uses water with an odor lure to attract egg-laying Aedes mosquitoes. 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 kills her before she can spread disease.
