Mosquitoes are known to transmit diseases such as Equine Encephalitis, West Nile Virus and others. When they bite an animal or bird infected with a disease, they go to lay eggs and come back to bite again. It is this second bite that transmits diseases. The BioCare Trap -N- Kill attracts, catches and kills mosquitoes when they try to lay eggs, thus preventing that second “fatal” bite. Our trap uses a mosquito egg pheromone which Mosquitoes use to mark special egg-laying places. This “locator” biochemical draws mosquitoes into the trap, but they cannot find the exit and will eventually tire and drown in the liquid. Traps are re-usable, non-toxic, and safe for the environment. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
Female mosquitoes recognize this as a site to lay their eggs. Mosquitoes entering the trap will be killed or die shortly thereafter. Mosquitoes breed in standing water found outdoors in containers, pots, planters, gutters, tires, tree-holes, and low-laying areas regularly for best results. Traps should be placed in shaded areas out of reach of children and pets. Space traps 25 feet apart. Do not use on tables intended for serving food.
