Thursday Jan 27, 2022 (00:10:46)


Did you know that mosquitoes are the deadliest animals on the planet? Mosquitoes can transmit diseases like malaria, dengue, and Zika. In fact, 700,000 people die from mosquito-borne illnesses each year. Mosqitter is a company that is dedicated to helping reduce the number of mosquitoes in the world. Their mission is to make the Earth more ecological by reducing the use of insecticides and chemicals. Their solution will enable many countries to save resources while protecting their citizens' health in a natural and sustainable way.

What is Mosqitter?

Mosqitter is a company that has created a product to help reduce the number of mosquitoes in the world. Mosquitoes are responsible for transmitting some of the deadliest diseases on earth. Their solution is a safe and effective way to reduce mosquitoes without using chemicals or insecticides. The company's mission is to make the Earth more ecological by reducing the use of harmful chemicals.

How does Mosqitter work?

Mosqitter's solution reduces mosquitoes through the use of an attractant. This attractant mimics human breath and draws mosquitoes near, where they are then trapped and killed. Specifically, it attracts female mosquitoes, which are the ones that bite humans. This reduces the population in 2 ways: by eliminating the existing ones and preventing future breeding. Unlike many solutions, this one does not require any sort of maintenance, in that there are no supplies to replace.

Their solution is a safe and effective way to reduce mosquitoes without using chemicals or insecticides. Mosquitoes are responsible for transmitting some of the deadliest diseases on earth; the solution offers a safe and effective way to reduce their numbers without using harmful chemicals.

The product comes in three different models, depending on the size of the area that you're looking to protect. The Mosqitter Classic is designed for small areas, like a balcony or patio. The Mosqitter Plus is for larger areas, like a yard or garden. And the Mosqitter Pro is perfect for commercial applications, like campsites or outdoor events.

The most important part is that it is designed specifically to be used outside. The body is intended to be installed and left alone. So long as you have power, you're good to go. It can even withstand most types of severe weather, so you don't even really have to worry about it in the rain, snow, and more. In the case of a hurricane you might want to bring it in, but otherwise, you're pretty safe.


Mosqitter devices are available for purchase on their website. They also have a listing on Amazon. You can also find them in select stores worldwide. To learn more about Mosqitter's commitment to helping reduce the number of mosquitoes in the world, the details of the products, or to make a purchase, head over to the company's website.

Todd Cochrane (00:21)

I want to go ahead and welcome our first guest and I'm going to destroy your last name, Olga. Is it Diachuk? Okay, I don't hear her. Oh, okay. There we go. That's better. And you're with Mosqitter?

Olga Diachuk (00:36)

Yes, Mosqitter? Correct.

Todd Cochrane (00:38)

So tell me about your product.

Olga Diachuk (00:39)

Thank you very much. First of all, for having me today. It's a great pleasure. And Mosqitter. It's a smart and eco-friendly hardware solution to protect people outdoors, from mosquitoes without chemicals. So the key principle that stands behind our product, is that the device imitates human beings, it attracts mosquitoes, traps them inside, and in two, three weeks, you will get mosquito-free zones without the usage of any chemicals that are very highly spread nowadays and it's harmful to people, for the environment, and general for the ecosystem.

Todd Cochrane (01:14)

I'm going to build a camping site this spring and obviously when you're building a camping site in the woods, it's never had a camping site before the mosquitoes are just going to be horrendous. So I'd already kind of been pre-planning what to do. How big of an area? Is this meant to be indoors, outdoors? What's the square footage it'll cover?

Olga Diachuk (01:37)

Thank you so much for your question. Actually, we have three types of devices like small, medium, and for the biggest one. Small is basically used for the b2c segment, b2b for the hotels, restaurants, resorts, and the biggest one is being used for governmental needs. So if you're talking about the medium size, one device is covering like half an acre.

Todd Cochrane (02:00)


Olga Diachuk (02:00)

Yes. But it's like under ideal landscapes like there are no lakes, forests. It's like when there is a big and open territory. So it's only for outdoor usage. Our engineering team, together with entomologists, they created the device taking into account the female mosquito's physiology, because only female mosquito bites. So everything just went according to the mosquito physiology.

Todd Cochrane (02:27)

So some of the other solutions out there use some sort of chemical or some sort of detection unit to check the change out on a regular basis. It only lasts so long. What is the technology used in this and the-

Olga Diachuk (02:43)

The device we use, in our device four components; the living system that includes UV lightning, CO2, like special bass, it acts like a pheromone from female mosquito, and also the heat, like human's body heat. So all those four components together, like what is our secret sauce, in our device. We have a control unit, the software component that sets all necessary algorithms in order to put the device in the most efficient way. So these four components together with the software make the device that efficient. And we also had a lot of comparative tests in different climate zones, also here in the United States, in Florida, in Italy, in India. So in all those spots, the device showed great effectiveness. The mosquitoes in Florida can be big enough to carry you away. Yeah, but actually the idea, when we came up with this idea here in the United States, actually, because when we first had a business trip here in the United States, it was Zika outburst. And we were so surprised how it could happen that it's 21st century and the people just spraying out those chemicals from the aeroplanes. And like, there is no ecological solution. Like, we want to go to Mars but we cannot beat the mosquitoes. And after that, when we got back to Ukraine our engineering team, with entomologists, started to look for this solution. What is mosquito-like, how we can protect people because it's not only the issue of the conference, it's also the issue of protecting people from mosquito-borne diseases like Zika, malaria. The numbers are huge, like almost all year, every year 6000 people are dead because of mosquito-borne disease and like a million people are getting infected with each year. Unfortunately, the situation is getting worse because of climate change. Also, the mosquito is getting more and more resistant to pesticides, insecticides, so we should do something and we should do it in an ecological way.

Todd Cochrane (04:47)

You know, and I think too, is one thing I don't like doing is outdoors, you know, you have to put mosquito spray on, and I don't necessarily like applying chemicals to my skin as it is. So that's really what you're doing when you're putting a mosquito spray as you're putting a repellent chemical on. So who knows what the long-term effects of that are. In my part of the country, there's a tick issue as well. So you have to be really careful about the ticks, but the mosquitoes are the ones that absolutely drive you crazy. So in the application, I was thinking about in semi-dense woods, the effectiveness won't be as well just because there's lots of shrubbery and lots of places for mosquitoes to pool. So this is largely for resorts and for business areas and so forth, right?

Olga Diachuk (05:40)

Yes, our key goal is to create a safe ecosystem around people's habitats. So we do not want to interfere with the ecosystem because mosquitoes are the food for frogs and other animals, so we do not want to eliminate them. It should be part of the ecosystem. What we would like to do is just to create a safe environment

Todd Cochrane (06:01)


Olga Diachuk (06:01)

Yes, it's like with the air conditioning, you just create around you, around yourself, this safe environment like to act and to be protected from those pesky insects. And also, I would like to add that, like, now we are in two months, we are leading the application, with the help of this application, you will be able to remotely control the device, you will get the notification. But more importantly, you can install several devices, unite them into one single network, and operate them from your female application. And secondly, what we're working on at this is all very strategical, and the huge goal is to create and develop a worldwide monitoring system of mosquitoes. So we will integrate inside the sensor that will be able to classify and to count the mosquito score into the device, then those data will be sent to the cloud. And the information that we will provide will allow scientists, governments, first of all, and tourists as well just to tackle the mosquito activity worldwide. And also it will help us to avoid outbursts of mosquito-borne diseases like or if they happen, you can do some measures precaution measures in order to avoid it. So this is our biggest like, very ambitious goal. So we three different models, what are the price points on these? This is small is 900, this medium is 1100, and the biggest one for b2g industry is 2000. So pricing depends like we have to manufacture all of it to manufacturing in India, in Italy. So we are working on the license model. So in these countries, the price can differ but am saying in terms of Ukrainian prices for now. Right. So when do you expect this is going to be available than here in the United States? Yes. Thank you very much for asking, this is what we are working on now. Actually, this is the reason why we came again to CES.

Todd Cochrane (08:02)

To get licensing?

Olga Diachuk (08:03)

Yeah, this is our second time here at CES. The first time we came in 2020 and it was basically just to showcase to present the device. Now we are here with a very specific aim just to find new partnerships, new distribution, new manufacturing partners worldwide, and also specifically here in the United States because we know this market, we have been researching it, we know this solution is highly needed. And we also did a lot of comparative tests with the US product. That's why we are here and we want to launch.

Todd Cochrane (08:37)

Yes, my daughter lives in Florida, and she has a screened area outside her house. That's the only place she can really get relief from mosquitoes during certain times of the year, but the kids want to play in the yard. And you know, and she asked, so I'm thinking that what this could do for her is at least even for a household, even though the price is high, but at the same time for a household to be able to let your kids go out and play in the yard and not get all ate up is a big thing. Or if you entertain a lot and you want something in your small patio area to be taken care of. So this is really really cool. I'm assuming it requires electricity to utilize it, yeah?

Olga Diachuk (09:24)

Yeah, we use electricity it's like consumes like electrical bout it's not that much but also it can be integrated with the solar panels. Okay. Oh, that's smart. Yeah, very, very smart. Alright, so it's M-O-S-Q-I T-T-E-R. What? Yeah, Mosqitter.

Todd Cochrane (09:43)

Mosquitter and its Definitely check it out. Thank you so much for being here.

Olga Diachuk (09:52)

Thank you very much for having me. Thank you so much.

Todd Cochrane (09:53)

Yeah, thank you so much for making the track, and good luck with the show. Anyone out there that's in the manufacturing space or wants to do a partnership with them. Please reach out to their information rates on the website. Thank you so much.

Olga Diachuk (09:56)

Thank you. Have a good day. I really appreciate it. Bye-bye.
