PUT A STOP TO SLAPPING
We're not sure what's worse–getting bitten by a mosquito, slapping yourself trying to kill it, or the unsolicited slap by a supposed friend fulfilling their civic duty. All of these situations are uncomfortable by our standards and deserve to be irradiated as a warm-weather activity. It's true, you can control mosquito populations even though they fly. The secret is to get to them before they grow wings. Call in the ProCare Mosquito SWAT team equipped with expert knowledge and the right tools to reclaim your yard.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- What effect will the In2Care Mosquito Trap have on my pets?The active ingredients in our trap are not toxic to birds or mammals. We make use of a biological fungus that is only toxic to insects. The larvicide deployed in the trap specifically targets mosquito larvae and is not toxic to higher organisms in this low concentration. For example, in other products this larvicide has even been approved by WHO for use in drinking water. Contaminated females will only spread tiny amounts of larvicide (a few micrograms) to other artificial small water bodies, which limits any risk for other aquatic organisms and fish.
- What happens when it rains a lot? Does this dilute the larvicide and reduce the trap’s efficacy?The larvicide in the water of the trap works in very low concentrations, less than 0.001 milligram per liter water. The amount of larvicide added to the trap water is sufficient to kill all larvae in the trap, even with a lot of rain. We also recommend placing the traps in shaded, vegetated areas, where mosquitoes like to breed and no heavy rain input is expected.
- I still get mosquito bites, does this mean the trap does not work properly?The trap does not target mosquitoes when they are in search of a bloodmeal. It is specifically designed for mosquitoes at the moment they are laying eggs. However, a high enough coverage of traps in your area will cause a decrease in the amount of mosquitoes and will reduce the chance of disease. It will take some time to have the larvicide disseminated in the area and therefore a few (3-4) weeks a significant population impact can be expected.

THE FACTS ABOUT THESE SUCKERS
Pictured Above: The most common mosquito our customers deal with, the Asian Tiger.
There are 63 different types of mosquitos located in Georgia.
Not all types of mosquitos bite, and of those that do, only the females bite, while the males don't live very long.
Identification is key to successful control and great results. Mosquitos are not all the same: They can come out at different times of day, live in and lay their eggs in various environments. Not all have the same ability to carry the same diseases. They even differ on how fast and how far they will fly in a day.
Asian Tigers thrive in man-made containers, not just any standing water: in catch trays under plants, plastic containers around the yard, French drain catch basins, debris filled gutters, as well as birdbaths and decorative items around the yard.
Asian Tigers are day biters, and live and nest on the underside of leaves, under decks, and other shaded areas.
Asian Tigers most commonly spread heart worm diseases to household pets causing expensive vet bills. They also have the ability to carry the West Nile, Zika, Dengue, yellow fever, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, and many more dangerous diseases.
