Eave Tubes: Protecting households against malaria mosquitoes
Mosquito resistance to insecticides threatens to undermine progress in the fight against malaria. There is an urgent need for new and complementing vector control tools to eliminate the disease that still kills almost half a million people per year.
In2Care EaveTubes were designed to passively funnel human-scented air to lure anophelines. The product uses In2Care’s patented static netting inserts that break mosquito resistance by transferring lethal doses of public health insecticides.
This new “Lethal House Lure” product has been validated in 3 African countries and is under evaluation by WHO.

Eave tubes deploy robust netting inserts designed to fit in standard 6-inch PVC tubes. Inserts are made from strong, yet flexible plastic material and can be mass-produced via injection-moulding. Their design enables easy handling and placement of inserts into the wall tubes from the outside of the house.
