Many malaria vector control specialists also work on dengue mosquitoes. After all, both diseases overlap in geographic distribution and are endemic throughout the tropics. Today our company (In2Care BV, based in the Netherlands) is proud to announce the launch of the In2Trap - a novel trap for dengue mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti) that no longer incorporates chemical insecticides but is based on biocontrol agents.
Two years of research in the lab and the Caribbean has resulted in this completely new and insecticide-free method to control dengue mosquitoes. It is the first trap ever to incorporate biological control agents and is therefore perfectly suitable for use in regions where insecticide resistance is widespread or greener alternatives are needed.
