ChemTec Pest Control uses the latest in mosquito reduction using a natural fungal disease of insects called Beauveria bassiana.
Our treatment is a seasonal – monthly service using the In-2-Care stations that contains water to which we add a distinctive odor lure, targeted to attract egg-laying Aedes mosquitoes to the station. When the female mosquitoes enter the station, they rest on a treated gauze mesh near the water surface. This mesh is laced with a light powder containing an insect growth regulator and a naturally occurring, insect-killing fungus. We then exploit the fact that Aedes mosquitoes lay their eggs over multiple sites.
After picking up the two actives, the female mosquito flies out of the station to lay more eggs elsewhere. She has however been infected with the fungus; and she is also carrying the insect growth regulator on her legs. As she visits different water containers to lay her eggs, she spreads the insect growth regulator, contaminating many other breeding sites around the station. This Auto-dissemination process ensures she kills the larvae from many other mosquitoes in small and hard to find breeding sites.
Mosquito treatment is a seasonal – monthly service.
All stations belong to ChemTec Pest Control. Any damaged to a station will concur a charge.
** No company can eliminate flying insects. We can only reduce the amount of mosquitoes by treating places they tend to land and rest
ChemTec Pest Control also offers a cheaper, passive mosquito trap with an every-other-month service plan.
The Ovi-Catch™ is based on technology that was developed and tested in the performance of research conducted at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention laboratory in Puerto Rico.
