Mosquito Trap Proves to be Highly Effective on
Mosquitos Carrying Zika Virus
COLUMBIA, S.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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.
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
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
