ABOUT MOSQUITOES

Mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance, they can be life threatening as well. Mosquitoes spread and carry diseases such as Malaria, Barmah Forest Virus, Yellow Fever and many other forms of fever. They can also transmit diseases from animals to humans. In fact, worldwide, mosquitoes transmit diseases to more than 70,000,000 people annually and will be responsible for the deaths of 1 out of every 17 people currently alive.

According to reports from the World Health Organisation, Malaria causes as many as 3,000,000 deaths annually and 2,5 billion people around the world are at risk from Dengue Fever. Each year, there are tens of millions of cases and up to 95% are children.

What Attracts Midges & Mosquitoes?

When humans or animals breath out, they produce CO2 and their bodies are constantly giving off heat and moisture. Mosquitoes and other biting insects have the ability to detect CO2, heat and moisture from long distances and are immediately attracted to the  source. Mosquitoes are also attracted to trace amounts of alcohol vapour as well as dark colours, especially black. The mosquitoes fly around and search, using their sensors, for a warm body to start biting.

Principle of Capturing Midges & Mosquitoes.

Principle of Capturing Mosquitoes. Mosquitoes, even in the dark, can easily assess where a person is by sensing carbon dioxide and temperature that he/she sheds. Scientists consider carbon dioxide as the single most important cue used by mosquitoes for locating a source of blood (female mosquitoes can detect a host to feed on at a distance of 20 - 40 yards). Also , they react extremely sensitively to certain wavelengths of rays. Using these characteristics of mosquitoes, the Trap can decoy and capture midges and mosquitoes, both in bright indoors and in dark outdoors, via a tripartite system: HEAT, CERTAIN WAVELENGTHS OF RAYS produced from the ultraviolet light installed inside, and CARBON DIOXIDE produced when a photocatalyst light is radiated onto the Ti0² coating of the funnel.

Decoyed midges & mosquitoes enter the exterminator through the capture windows on the upper parts and are then strongly drawn into the capture net on the lower part. Once they are drawn into the capture net, they cannot fly away due to the strong downward current of the  ventilator. They then quickly dehydrate and die. The Trap doesn't operate like other devices that explode insects and spray fragments into the air.

Many species of midges & mosquitoes do not travel far from where they hatch during their short life-cycle. Continuous use of the Midge & Mosquito Trap in one area can literally collapse the midge & mosquito population over an area of up to 500 square meters, virtually eliminating biting insects. This is accomplished by both immediately removing biting females from the area and by eliminating them from the breeding pool. Less midges & mosquitoes laying eggs, means less midges & mosquitoes, period!

Pohyocatalyst PHOTOCATALYST

Photocatalysis is a decomposition reaction formed when Titanium dioxide, as a catalyst, uses light energy.
Ti0² can be used semi-permanently because, as a catalyst, it is not consumed in the process and therefore does not change. Also, when small amounts of certain wavelengths from fluorescent lights and organic matter on the surface of Ti0² meet and react, it carries out the function of purifying air and sterilizing sundry bacteria by decomposing foul-smelling molecules. Ti0² was approved as a food additive in 1968 by the United States of America.
At present, Ti0², is used in the making of chocolates and is a totally harmless material to the human body.

The Mosquito Trap uses a Ti0², coated plastic funnel and an ultraviolet light which generates carbon dioxide, moisture and heat in the device when it runs. It emulates human breath and the decoyed midges & mosquitoes enter the Trap.

DIRECTIONS

Read and follow instructions in this operation manual carefully before operating the device.
If product is used outdoors, it must be in a covered area.
Do not mount the unit near heat, gas, oil or other flammable materials.
Do not touch the fan while in motion.
When the Trap is not in use, disconnect the power, store the Trap indoors and out of reach of children.
Always disconnect power before cleaning, servicing or inspecting the inside of the Trap.
Plug the power cord into a properly grounded electrical outlet, protected from the weather.
Do not allow the Trap, power cord or plug to be immersed in water.
Do not operate the Trap with a damaged power cord or plug.
Ensure power cords are placed carefully to avoid causing a tripping hazard.
Do not insert fingers or any foreign objects into the unit while it is connected to an electrical outlet.
There are devices available for retaining a connection between an extension cord and a power supply cord.
Connections should be kept off the ground and dry.
The unit can be easily installed and used in backyards, gardens, accommodations, hotels, golf courses, garages, patios, marinas, cattle sheds, horse stables, etc.
Especially suited to areas with high mosquito populations and areas with mosquito-borne diseases.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What makes the Trap the best choice for controlling midges & mosquitoes?
A. The Trap is the leading, long-term solution scientifically proven to safely and effectively reduce midges & mosquitoes and other insects. Photocatalyst technology and special light will help you drastically reduce the midge & mosquito population in your yard.

Q. How soon should my Mosquito Trap begin to control mosquitoes?
A. The Trap will begin to catch immediately there is mosquito activity in the area. Female mosquitoes looking for food will be drawn to the Trap and destroyed. The Trap will gradually reduce your mosquito population as it attracts and destroys them . It may take 6-8 weeks of use to reduce the mosquito population to the point that you have successfully interrupted their breeding cycle.

Q. Will it harm humans or pets?
A. No. It is completely safe for humans, animals and the environment. The Mosquito Trap does not involve pesticides, bug zappers, repellents, etc. Fogging , repellents and coils often involve the use of chemicals that have the potential to be dangerous for both humans and the environment. The Mosquito Trap uses none of these chemical methods in the control of midge and mosquito populations . The Trap, unlike many other products, is 100% environmentally friendly.

Q. How high off the ground do we install it?
A. The Mosquito Trap can be placed , fixed or hung on any external object, wall, verandah post, tree or ceiling in the area to be protected. The most efficient catches were at about 6 feet off the ground. Many people also have small children and pets and need to hang the unit head high.

Q. Is the device noisy?
A. The Trap's only sound is the built-in fan , which is equivalent to a computer fan.

Q. Does it attract other insects?
A. Yes, it has been specifically designed to attract and control mosquitoes, midges, sandflies and other blood sucking insects, although it may attract other insects not beneficial to your garden as well.

Q. How long do I operate the trap for each day?
A. The Mosquito Trap is best operated for about 8 to 10 hours a day, but can be left on permanently.

Q. How many Traps should I buy for around my house?
A. This depends on the size of your property. Generally, we recommend two or three Traps, depending on the number and location of midge & mosquito breeding areas on your property. The Mosquito Trap can, in favourable weather conditions, attract insects from up to 80 feet away.

CARE OF THE DEVICE

ATTENTlON: Always disconnect the power to your Mosquito Trap before opening the Trap.

care for the device

Remove the collection chamber by turning clockwise. Remove any build-up from the inside of the collection chamber.
Push the plastic funnel surrounding the fan outward with two thumbs. The middle part will detach from the upper part.
If bulbs expire, carefully rotate old bulbs 90° and lift to remove, insert the new bulbs and rotate 90°.
Ultraviolet light bulbs are consumable items (approx. 3,000 hours) and replacements can be purchased
from authorised distributors.
Using a small brush and soapy water, carefully clean the fan and the steel ring.
Ensure that water is not allowed to enter into the fan motor. Never hose water into the fan.
In order to prolong the life of your device, stand it in a dry place when not in operation.
