Female mosquitoes need blood to produce their offspring.
The In2Care system attracts female mosquitoes ready to lay eggs and infects them with two products that keep her eggs from growing into adults while slowly killing her.
In2Care uses two products to control the Aedes mosquito population around your home.
The first product is a growth regulator that prevents larvae from growing into adult mosquitoes.
The second products is a fungus that infects and slowly kills the female mosquito.
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.
In2Care in US-EPA registered (EPA reg no. 91720-1) and allowed for professional use against Aedes mosquitoes.
The two active ingredients within the In2Care system have short half-lives and pose very low risks for non-target organisms.
The team behind In2Care comprises of seasoned professionals who specialize in scientific insect research and vector control.
Within three weeks of installation you will see a dramatic decrease in the mosquito population around your home.
In2Care® Mosquito Traps were initially developed and scientifically validated in our In2Care mosquito laboratory (www.parasitesandvectors.com/content/7/1/200).
The Trap deploys a very special type of gauze developed by In2Care. It holds the bioactives via electrostatic binding forces, which enables a high dose transfer when mosquitoes make contact and causes high levels of mortality (see http://www.pnas.org/content/112/39/12081.full.pdf)
Field efficacy studies were performed in Trinidad, Cayman Islands and Florida, USA. The Manatee County Mosquito Control District tests for US-EPA registration used local strains of Aedes aegypti and albopictus. Results confirmed that the fungus effectively kills mosquitoes several days after gauze exposure (graph A), which allows them to also disseminate larvicide to other sites before dying. There were massive reductions in adult mosquitoes produced in other sites near the Trap; >80% were inhibited from emerging as adult mosquito (graph B).
