Washington, May 11 : An innovative, propane-fuelled insect control technology has been developed to reduce the annoyance of biting mosquitoes and the risk of dangerous mosquito-borne illnesses, providing long-term family protection and backyard comfort.
In 2007, the U.S. Center for Disease Control recorded over 3,500 human cases of West Nile Virus resulting in 109 deaths.
Eastern Equine Encephalitis and Dog Heartworm, both spread by mosquitoes, pose significant and continued threats this year.
Recent reports from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases state that the appearance of Dengue Fever in the U.S. is a real possibility.
The best and most proven effective way of reducing the backyard population of dangerous biting mosquitoes is by using a combination of CO2, heat, moisture, visual cues and scent.
To combat pests, Kaz, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of quality healthcare and home comfort products, now offers homeowners the Stinger family of Mosquito Vacuums Home Depot and Lowe's stores nationwide.
Mosquito Vacuums offers long-term family protection and backyard comfort using propane-fuelled, insect control technology developed to reduce annoying biting mosquitoes and the risk of dangerous mosquito-borne illnesses.
"These mosquito devices are designed to provide an effective, long-term solution to reducing backyard mosquito populations, and combines proven mosquito-attracting science with powerful vacuum technology and a reliable design, said Kristin Anderson, Stinger Brand Manager for Kaz.
"We've done the research to ensure homeowners get the highest-quality mosquito control at an affordable price," Anderson added.
Chemical sprays, candles and lotions offer only temporary and potentially harmful relief from mosquitoes.
However, the Stinger Mosquito Vacuum is odourless and silent; providing continuous 24-hour protection from mosquitoes, black flies, gnats, and no-see-ums. reated by engineers with mosquito control device expertise, independent tests show that Mosquito Vacuum outperforms the competition because of the product's unique combination of carbon dioxide (CO2), heat, moisture and exclusive EPA-approved multi-scent bait, making Mosquito Vacuum more effective than any other trapping device sold at retail.
Burning the same propane as barbeque grills and emitting the same CO2 as a small dog, the Mosquito Vacuum creates an alluring bio-signature similar to a living host, mimicking human breath and body heat to attract and kill hungry female mosquitoes in up to one-acre range.
Combining CO2, heat, moisture, visual cues, and scent, the Mosquito Vacuum lures female mosquitoes into the inescapable bug basket with noticeable results in a one-acre range within 30 days.
