A high-tech trap. This is how Mosquito Magnet Executive works, as explained by Paolo D’Intino, Ekommerce srl sales manager. «Mosquito Magnet Executive represents the most innovative technology applied in the mosquito capture sector. The trap simulates human breathing by catalytically converting LPG into CO2. The mosquitoes, attracted by CO2 and by special synergists Lurex and R-Octenol, approach the trap to feed on the blood meal, but as soon as they arrive near it they are hopelessly sucked and captured in the internal retina ».
How does it keep mosquitoes away?
The mosquitoes looking for a meal of blood are only the fertilized females who, thanks to the proteins obtained from the blood of their prey, will be able to complete the development of the eggs. By capturing these mosquitoes it is possible to interrupt or significantly reduce the life cycle of these insects in the external environment in which they act. The mosquitoes attracted by carbon dioxide are sucked in by a special fan and imprisoned until death that occurs due to dehydration.
How long?
It is advisable to use the Mosquito Magnet Executive trap from the moment when the temperatures are set above 15 ° C so as to capture the first hatching of the eggs. Normally the trap is kept in operation from April to September.
What are the innovative features of this system?
It is scientifically proven that mosquitoes and insects attracted to blood go towards humans following the traces of carbon dioxide produced by breathing. Mosquito Magnet Executive simulates human breathing by catalytically converting Propane Gas (LPG) to carbon dioxide. Mosquito Magnet is based on "Counterflow" technology, a special geometry that emits a calibrated mix of CO2, heat, humidity, R-octenol or Lurex, in order to attract mosquitoes and suck them into a network, exploiting their own instinct that the pushes to turn upwards as they approach the lens. The Mosquito Magnet Executive trap is part of the strategic-operational process of Integrated Mosquito Management as an ecological adulticidal action. By implementing this process through all monitoring, prevention and control activities, it will be possible to manage and control mosquito infestation to the fullest and fully enjoy your space.
