Gros Islet, Saint Lucia, July 1st, 2016 – FDL Pest Control Solutions will launch the In2Care mosquito trap on Saturday July 2nd at JQ mall in Rodney Bay. The In2Care mosquito trap is a safe and effective way to kill the Aedes aegypti mosquito which carries the Dengue, Chikungunea, and the Zika Virus.
The In2Care® Mosquito Trap is an external mosquito treatment system, which is used to attract, egg laying Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. Once inside the trap, mosquitoes get infected with a growth regulator and a fungus which they then spread to several breeding sites within 400 square metres of the trap.
Managing Director of FDL Pest Control Solutions, Chris Lubin says, ‘The effects of the Zika virus are still not fully known. The effects of Chikungunea are still not fully known. But we do know the root of these viruses. The Aedes aegypti Mosquito. The beauty of the In2Care Mosquito trap, is that, it not only kills the Aedes aegypti mosquito itself, but it also kills the larvae in infected areas around the trap, hence reducing the population of this dangerous mosquito.’
The In2Care mosquito trap has been used successfully in St. Lucia, by homeowners, hotels, business houses and industrial compounds since August 2015. FDL Pest Control Solutions has also collaborated with the Ministry of Health on a small project to reduce the mosquito population in sections of the Dennery Valley. The company is also working with the St. Lucia Hotel and Tourism Association, as part of an integrated mosquito management programme within the tourism industry.
The In2Care Mosquito traps will be officially launched on Saturday July 2nd at JQ Mall in Rodney Bay, Gros Islet from 8:00 am.
