Hi,

I would like to introduce our tool to stop the vector of above's diseases.

We started the development some time ago as a private venture not even realising that it is not just us who have a serious mosquito problem. We later realsied that our concept is a total paradigm change in vector control. This paradigm change is actually the secret behind the system's effectiveness. After having the first prototypes available, we started to test the product on the properties of private homes, industrial sites and one workers' dormitory for 5 000 people. The results have been always the same: mosquitoes disappeared from the protected area and came back when the system was deactivated.

We started to manufacture then the product in two versions. The standard version can be used in any permanent environment like homes, hospitals, scholls or resorts while the mobile version targets industrial environments or construction sites and can be helpful during local outbreaks as they be easily moved in fast.

Even in resorts surrounded by Indonesian jungle we achieve a suppression of at least 85% of the local mosquito population. If the protected is larger like in resorts, a suppression of up to 100% is achieved further away from the borders to the jungle.

There was no local transmission on any of the installations since we started testing. Local transmissions have been a problem in the workers' dormitory where workers returned infected from their vacations mainly from India resulting in many local transmissions before our system was installed.

It seems to us that the system also stops the dispersal of mosquitoes as they are not forced any more to search for food and breeding spots.

The following link will give you an idea of the product:

As we are a commercial entity, we would like to partner up with people from research institutions using the product for a bit more than just creating a luxury environment free of mosquitoes.

    Thanks for sharing Erich.

    I'd be interested to hear the views of others working in this area.

    Sounds like an interesting new approach.
    I am curious to hear more from others too.
