Biotraps - Biodegradable Mosquito Traps
To make controlling mosquito populations more cost effective, better for the environment and easy to deploy.
BioTraps are a just add water mosquito trap (kills the larvae and the female mosquito). The containers are completely biodegradable and compostable while containing both attractant and environmentally safe insecticide to decimate mosquito populations by killing over 95% of the mosquito larvae. This technology is significantly more cost effective, environmentally-friendly and healthier for local residents than existing plastic mosquito traps so that more money can be allocated towards vaccine research and cures for mosquito borne illness. By targeting the female mosquito we prevent the next generation of mosquitoes from spreading disease.

Targeting the behaviour of female mosquitoes.
Only the female mosquitos bite and transmit diseases from one host to another, after taking a blood meal needed to develop her eggs , the Aedes aegypti mosquitos produce on average 100 to 200 eggs per batch, and a single female can produce up to five batches of eggs during a lifetime. It is important to kill the female mosquito so she does not lay eggs or transmit disease between humans. Female mosquitos travel less than 250 m on average in their lifespan. By eliminating female mosquitoes in a region, you can decimate the mosquito population in just 4-6 weeks
