GREENSTRIKE‘s Mosquito Preventer uses a patented non-toxic mosquito lure to attract female mosquitoes to the artificial pond. It features two landing strips that replicate pond greenery – where mosquitoes often lay their eggs – and has a UV light that turns on to mimic dusk and dawn, when mosquitoes are most active. After the mosquitoes lay their eggs, they also leave behind a natural pheromone that attracts other female mosquitoes. In combination with the lures, this lets the unit collect up to 5x more eggs than a natural breeding ground. Every three days, the eggs and attractants pass through the system and the eggs are neutralized. The mosquitoes’ pheromones and GREENSTRIKE lures are then recycled back into the artificial pond, ready to capture more mosquito eggs.
