Mega-Catch™ 3000 Combination Lure Attracts Asian Tiger Mosquitoes (Aedes Albopictus)
Date:8/14/2009

A new weapon to help 'fight the bite' from America's most unwanted species; the aggressive, disease-carrying, Asian Tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) has just been released by Envirosafe Technologies N.Z. Ltd, the makers of Mega-Catch™ mosquito traps.

Auckland, NZ (PRWEB) August 14, 2009 -- The patent-pending, Mega-Catch™ 3000 combo lure developed by and exclusive to Mega-Catch™, is designed to enhance trap performance and increase capture rates. The EPA approved combination lure incorporates synthetic Octenol, lactic acid and other ingredients specifically formulated, then blended to attract the Asian Tiger and other nuisance mosquitoes, sand flies, black flies and biting midges (no-see-ums).

The use of attractant lures in mosquito traps has been shown to significantly increase capture rates of most mosquito species. Mega-Catch™ report that in tests conducted using traps baited with a combination of Octenol and lactic acid, the capture of various mosquito species including the Asian tiger, was two to three times greater than traps baited with Octenol alone.

"We feel that you can use attractants in a trapping strategy to divert mosquitoes away from biting people," says USDA entomologist Dr Daniel Kline. "If you can keep them from biting people you can stop the disease transmission".

Globally there are over 3,500 different species of mosquitoes, 175 of them in the U.S. However it's the Asian Tiger that is widely regarded as the most invasive mosquito species in the world. Since its accidental introduction into the United States through a shipment of used car tires in Houston back in 1985, the Asian Tiger mosquito has continued to flourish. Stealthy and resilient, they have thwarted most efforts at control and eradication.

By combining rigorous research and technological innovation, Mega-Catch™ clai
