Independent trials in Australia and international locations
including Uganda, Kenya, South Africa, Mexico, Jamaica, The Netherlands, Singapore and
Sri Lanka, to name a few, have demonstrated that the product is highly
effective in killing the immature stages of the mosquito breeding cycle. The film also
hinders oviposition (egg laying).
It is effective
on all of the main species of mosquitoes: anopheles (the malaria vector), aedes
(dengue vector) and culex (West Nile virus) mosquitoes.
This is a summary of the trial results:
- mortality of all pupae within 3
- mortality of older larvae
(L3,L4) in 1-3 days
- mortality of younger larvae (L1,
L2) within 7 days or less
- 100% suppression of pupation
- the film deters females from egg
- many females drown while
attempting to lay eggs.
