With the warmer springtime weather rapidly approaching, the South will soon be ushering in another hot and humid summer. And while this weather is a promise of good times with friends and family, it also brings along the biggest bummer to anyone’s summer: The Mosquito. Before you know it, a pleasant day in the sun and shade of your yard turns into a battle for mosquito control. The mosquito not only leaves you with bites, but it can also transmit one of many diseases to you, your children, and your pets. These mosquito-borne illnesses include West Nile virus disease, Eastern equine encephalitis, and St. Louis encephalitis. They can also carry the parasitic heartworm, a parasite that can infect your beloved family dog, potentially resulting in death.
Although all these factors in welcoming mosquitoes into your backyard may sound scary, there is a solution that not only reduces the mosquitoes on your property but also can eliminate the diseases they carry before they even have a chance to bite you.
The In2Care Mosquito Trap is an innovative way to reduce and eliminate mosquitoes at the start of their lifecycle. This alternative, green mosquito solution is placed discreetly in yards for 24/7 coverage. Here is a step-by-step of how this revolutionary product works:
- The trap is filled with water which attracts mosquitoes into the In2Care system as a breeding ground.
- The adult mosquito lands on a net in the bucket containing fungus which attaches to the mosquito’s legs. This fungus fills the mosquito within several days to help prevent disease transmission.
- It also lays its eggs in the water, which is treated with a larvicide, stopping any further larvae from reaching adulthood.
- The mosquito will fly off with the product from the net still attached to its legs. As the mosquito lands on other breeding sites around the property, it spreads the green pesticide to other mosquitos who may not have encountered the buckets. Eventually, the infected mosquitoes will succumb to the pesticide.
With the In2Care System, homeowners can put their mind at ease during peak mosquito season knowing their property will harbor fewer mosquitoes.
