Mosquitoes are a major problem for half of the world's population. Not only do they cause a nuisance, but they can also spread diseases such as Zika, dengue, and malaria. In 2017, there was even a Zika outbreak in Florida. Traditional approaches to controlling mosquitoes, such as using chemicals, are outdated, so innovative solutions are needed. Thankfully, Mosqitter has a solution for the mosquito problem.
Anastasia, CEO and founder of Mosqitter introduced their smart eco-friendly mosquito control system at the Consumer Electronics Show in 2020. This software-driven mosquito trap is designed to trap mosquitoes in an ecological way. It has already been installed in four continents and has helped many people enjoy cleaner ecosystems.
The latest iteration of the product, 3.0, is even smarter than before. It can be controlled via an app, which can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Mosqitter is also making steps towards the US market, with an office in Pennsylvania and strong distributors.
The 3.0 version of the product has new features that make it even more efficient. It can be remotely controlled and monitored, and it can also analyze the types of mosquitoes that it catches. This is important for understanding the density of mosquitoes in a certain area, and for determining which types of mosquitoes carry which diseases.
Mosqitter's mosquito control system is a great way to efficiently catch mosquitoes and make an impact on the traditional approach to controlling them. It can help protect people from the diseases that mosquitoes carry, and make the world a safer place.
Mosquitoes are one of the most dangerous creatures on the planet because of their ability to spread diseases like malaria, Zika, and dengue. These diseases are a major cause of death and suffering around the world, particularly in developing countries. Mosquitoes can also cause a range of other health problems, including skin irritation and allergic reactions.
Mosqitter's system was designed to tackle this problem. It uses multiple ingredients to attract female mosquitoes, which are the ones that cause diseases and bite. The system also uses data analysis to make it smarter and more efficient. This technology is already being used in India, Europe, and Ukraine, and the company is now looking to expand to the US and Brazil.
The system is designed to be remotely operated, so it can be used in a variety of settings. It is large, measuring 120 meters, and is intended for outdoor use. The cost of the system is estimated to be around $2,000, which is a small price to pay for the potential to save lives.
Mosqitter's system is a great example of how technology can be used to tackle a major global health problem. By eliminating mosquito-borne diseases, we can make the world a safer place. It is encouraging to see companies like Mosqitter taking on this challenge and making a real difference. To learn more about the system, check out the company's website.
