The In2Care Mosquito Trap is a novel tool to combat Aedes mosquitoes. 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.

Dengue, Chikungunya, Yellow Fever and Zika virus are rapidly spreading in tropical regions throughout the world. Their vector, the Aedes mosquito, is difficult to control as it divides its eggs over various small and hard to find breeding sites and has become resistant to chemical insecticides. The In2Care Mosquito Trap effectively attracts and kills Aedes mosquitoes with novel and green ingredients that target both larvae and adults. Trap activity is not limited to the trap itself but extends to the surrounding area.
