The In2Care Mosquito Trap

The traps are currently approved and registered as a mosquito control tool in >20 countries in the Caribbean and South America. Registration processes in several other countries and regions are ongoing. Pending full registration, the US-EPA has already granted temporary approval for professional use of In2Care Mosquito Traps in Zika-infested States of the USA via a Section 18 Emergency Exemption under the FIFRA act.

The In2Care® Mosquito Trap is currently being sold to governments, pest control operators and consumers in Central and South American countries via our US-based distributor Univar. For a list of sales options and Univar’s licensed dealers, go to or contact info @

The In2Care Mosquito Trap can be placed around homes, hotels, hospitals and other outdoor settings where there is a lot of mosquito breeding. With high enough coverage (1 trap per 400 m2) this product will reduce Aedes populations by killing them and their offspring in and around the traps. By using mosquito-driven dispersal of larvicide, even small and hard to find breeding sites can be targeted. This product is ideal for hotspot and problem areas, in particular locations where insecticide use is restricted (schools, hospitals etc) or greener control options are requested.

  • Easy to assemble & durable components
  • Uses safe, US-EPA approved bioactives
  • Outdoor placement in shade: 1 trap per 400 m2 (10 traps per acre)
  • Maintenance: add water when needed & refresh refills every 4-6 weeks
  • Placing enough traps in an area will result in Aedes population reductions after 2-3 weeks
