Frequently Asked Questions for the Mosquito Preventer
The Mosquito Preventer recreates the ideal breeding spot that female mosquitoes love to lay their eggs in. By killing the mosquito eggs rather than using traditional traps or zappers, you are targeting the source of mosquito population growth before it becomes a problem. It is also a much more environmentally safe when compared to Carbon Dioxide propane traps and spray toxic pesticides and chemicals.
The Mosquito Lures replicate proteins and minerals found in nature. The primary components of the Mosquito Lures are non-toxic. In fact, if you or your pet were to take a drink of the Lure/Attractant water it would taste horrible (just like swamp water!) but wouldn’t hurt.
Since you are helping to reduce future generations of mosquitoes, the Mosquito Preventer may take up to 20 days for results. Remember, by killing mosquito eggs you prevent the mosquito population from growing to an unhealthy level. The key to the Mosquito Preventer is to start early in the Mosquito season! The earlier you start, the less the mosquito populations in your backyard have a chance to grow.
No. Do not use the Mosquito Preventer indoors. For indoor insect trapping, use GREENSTRIKE’s Indoor Flying Insect Trap
It is best to clear all spots in your yard, including puddles, to allow the Mosquito Preventer to be the primary breeding spot for female mosquitoes. Remove standing water, clear your eavestrophes, empty bird baths.
The Mosquito Preventer turns on approximately every 3 days at midnight. The only sound it makes is the sounds of a pump mechanism and water filling up a bucket. It will not keep you up at night!
As early in the mosquito season as possible. If you place the Mosquito Preventer in your yard later in the summer months, it may take longer for the unit to take affect.
Regulating bodies of PMRA and Health Canada prevent us from claiming the size of yard the Mosquito Preventer will cover. However, for a standard semi-urban backyard, one unit should suffice. However, inform your neighbours of the benefits of the Mosquito Preventer. The more units around your neighbourhood, the better chance you have at reducing mosquito populations. Mosquitoes are terrible flyers and don’t travel very far.
Mosquitoes eggs are automatically run through a filter where they are separated from the Breeding-Zone water. They will dry up and die before hatching into mosquitoes.
You should replace the Lures every 30 days.
You should replace the Filter every 30 days.
You should replace the Landing Strips every 30 days.
Batteries don’t like heat. So the hotter your environment is, the less battery life your Mosquito Preventer will have. Generally speaking, you may have to replace the batteries up to 3 or 4x a mosquito season.
Public Health Associations
Every State, Province or Territory will have their own Health Association which provides helpful tips on localized health threats, specifically from mosquitoes. Mosquitoes have the ability to transmit a number of potentially deadly diseases.
