Mosquito Trap Proves to be Highly Effective on Mosquitos Carrying Zika Virus

COLUMBIA, S.C.--()--Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc. (SETi) and Seoul Viosys announce the availability of the violeds™ MOSCLEAN, a new mosquito trap that captures more than 10 times as many mosquitos than conventional traps on the market today. The MOSCLEAN attracts mosquitos by using ultra violet LEDs that emit light in a targeted range. Independent research studies proved the MOSCLEAN mosquito trap to be highly effective on Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitos, both of which have been recently linked to transferring the Zika virus. The MOSCLEAN is now available for purchase for $34.95 on www.amazon.com.

“The MOSCLEAN is amazing technology that uses special LEDs programmed to emit light, which is most favored by Aedes albopictus, the vector mosquito of Zika virus.”

Independent Research Studies

Philip Koehler, PhD, University of Florida, recently confirmed that when tested against traditional UV traps, the violeds™ MOSCLEAN consistently showed better performance in eliminating the Aedes aegypti, a type of mosquito which is known for transmitting the Zika virus. “These groundbreaking results are very exciting and could aid in the control and reduction of transmitting this debilitating disease,” stated Dr. Koehler.

Independent research studies conducted at the University of Hawaii by Dr. Daniel Rubinoff proved that the violeds™ MOSCLEAN was highly effective on all species of mosquitos. These studies, performed under controlled laboratory conditions together with real-world tests, showed that the MOSCLEAN trapped more mosquitos than traditional lamp-based mosquito traps on the market. Dr. Rubinoff stated, “The MOSCLEAN is amazing technology that uses special LEDs programmed to emit light, which is most favored by Aedes albopictus, the vector mosquito of Zika virus.”

“By attracting and trapping more mosquitos than conventional mosquito traps, the MOSCLEAN may lead to a dramatic turning point in the spread of viruses such as Zika,” continued Dr. Rubinoff.

How is MOSCLEAN Different?

Traditional mosquito control solutions include expensive carbon dioxide traps, harmful chemical sprays, and insect “zappers” that attract mosquitos into a high voltage metal grid by using an Ultra Violet “black light” bulb. Designed with the violeds™ technology and using LEDs instead of a traditional UV “black light” bulb, the MOSCLEAN is safe, environmentally friendly, and cost effective, with no replacement bulb requirements.
