The In2Care Refill Kit used in the Mosquito Trap is the first of it’s kind to use a biological control agent to kill mosquitoes. It deploys a US-EPA-approved fungus that kills the mosquito several days after infection and can prevent disease transmission. The In2Care Mosquito Trap larvicide is US-EPA-approved and WHO-recommended for mosquito control and use in drinking water. Both bioactives have short half-lives and pose very low risks for non-target organisms.
In2Care ® Mosquito Trap Systems are safe for pets and children and it will not harm beneficial insects such as bees and butterflies. It is also safe for marine life found in the water sources where mosquitoes love to breed. You can use the traps for your home, business, resort, hotel, ranch, farm, boat house, or commercial settings. The traps blend easily into typical landscapes because it looks like a flower pot.
How it works:
In2Care ® Mosquito Traps deploy a small dose of bioactive mixture in an enclosed point-source environment that is specifically attractive to mosquitoes. Only tiny amounts of larvicide will get spread to other breeding sites (mostly small man-made containers), which is enough to kill mosquito larvae (as <10 ppb PPF works well) but not enough to cause risk for non-target organisms like fish or mammals. In this way, our Traps offer an effective mosquito control option without drastic use of chemicals in the entire environment.
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.
