SpringStar’s Mosquito Trap-N-Kill targets container-breeding species of mosquitoes that can carry diseases such as dengue, chikungunya, west Nile virus, and yellow fever.
Trap-N-Kill is an economical, extremely simple, and effective method for controlling Aedes and Culex mosquito species.. The method consists of a cup system with an overflow hole, and a strip treated with a very small amount of a pesticide material. The pesticide chosen has extremely high activity against target mosquitoes.Trap-N-Kill now available!
Within the trap is a landing strip of velour paper and a pesticide-treated strip. The trap also contains water, which the female mosquitoes seek as a requirement for their eggs. The velour paper provides the mosquitoes with a preferred texture, on which they'll land to lay their eggs, staying in the trap long enough to receive a lethal dose from the pesticide. Because the pesticide doesn't kill them instantly, they may fly out of the trap and will die nearby.

reasons for the dramatic global emergence of DF/DHF as a major public
health problem are complex and not well understood. However, several
important factors can be identified.
1. First, major global demographic changes have occurred...
2. In most countries the public health infrastructure has deteriorated...
3. Increased travel by airplane provides the ideal mechanism for infected human transport of dengue viruses ...
