    Ovilanta is a good idea to kill larvae but it does not reduce anything.
    It provides a place for females to lay eggs and relies on you the housekeeper to drain and strain the water in the tire, burn the cloth used to strain the water and put it back in the tyre.

    If you dont burn the cloth, the larvae hatch as normal even out of water.

    If you forget to drain and strain the water every 2 weeks you will have millions hatch in the following days.

    The idea is the water will contain pheromones encouraging females to lay their eggs there so that you can kill them.
    It has to be outside.

    I don't see how this reduces mosquito count inside the house or around the garden.
    As far as there are females flying around, they will lay eggs everywhere they can.


    NoFlyZone also kills houseflies and small biting flies.

    It's a serious question. Skinks are useful to have, gobbling up critters. Great amusement watching them when the flying ants make an appearance. So are your devices a menace to them?

    I was replying to the guy who has got window screens etc and would never consider my product in a million years.

    Why ask the price and keep responding if you're only going to be interested after a million years...
    Price and design will have changed by then.

    Nothing else to do? .. Sad



    Geckos.... Yes now if they get inside they may end up getting fried. Sometimes it happens.
    But, if you have less flying insects around, you will also have less Geckos around as there's nothing for them to eat except what's in the machine.

    Are my units a menace to them?
    I don't know but you can consider anything that enters as good as dead the moment it goes inside.

    My missus would be praying by the side of the thing every time it crack-popped-fried something.


    Good stuff though.

    .
    Nothing odd about asking for the price if you're selling something. I now understand you're catering to a market for whom money is no object.

    I'm sure a couple of self appointed high roller members fall into that category.



    Best of luck.

    You keep on doing it your way, pat.



    Or alternatively...

    Knowing how much you love India...

    If you are fed up killing mosquitoes with that poisonous spray or that machines which do not work at all. Here I open up a secret which is safe and cheap too.

    If you have finished up with that bottle, don't buy another refill mosquito liquid killer machine please don't throw it away.

    Open up that refill and fill it with pure cow urine and then plug it again.


    A bottle of cow urine with Rs 50 will last for 8-9 months.

    Its amazing how many people don't realize any danger in chemicals they are spraying around their living and eating areas.

    Wait and hour and it'll be OK?

    They've even got a "Lavender scented" Baygon.. I tried it just to see what it smelt like.

    Imagine
    ...adding fragrances to a poison so it doesn't smell so bad.... presumably so its less unpleasant to breathe in

    Even joking with me that they are not writing from a hospital bed.
    What a joke

    Reducing/eliminating poisonous sprays is a very good reason to switch to any other method of insect control... Ozone layer depletion and aerosol propellants etc.

    Still, if you don't understand the dangers....

    No children or pets.....55555

We are exposed to a huge amount of chemicals, from deodorants to washing powders etc, etc. Do you really think they do not have long term effects?
    Ah the nanny state hasn't told us about this have they, I wonder why!

    Personally I have found the yardguard or Zapper brands very effective and they only cost about 1500 baht, unfortunately they are not available in the shops here and I brought the ones I have had from Australia with some spare UV globes, Last zapper brand one we had lasted 8 years, They are also safe to have outside in the weather as all the electronics are in the top lid, they are shaped like a outside light/lantern and are effective over 1/2 acre, It incinerated the insects with a electric charge which made a popping sound and a flash of light so you always new when it was working

    Bought a different brand one from Home Pro which has a fan in it that is supposed to blow the insects into a container in the bottom of it when they are attracted by the UV light but its not very effective at catching insects and has to be in a area protected from the rain

    Has anyone from TeakDoor purchased one of these mosquito traps? Are they worth while?

    I know that at least 4 bars around Mabprachan are using them and are very happy with the performance.

    I expect many others have been sold to private residences including a number of Teakdoor members.

    They do work well and a money back guarantee if not 100% satisfied.

    Keep yer money in yer pockets boys.

    Research Proves Bug Zappers Are Ineffective for Killing Mosquitoes

    Bug zappers attract insects using ultraviolet light. Mosquitoes find their blood meals by following the trail of carbon dioxide. Occasionally, a mosquito will get curious about the pretty light and make the fatal mistake of getting too close. But there's no guarantee that mosquito is even a female, and therefore a biting mosquito. In fact, many of the "mosquitoes" found in bug zappers are actually nonbiting insects called midges.


    In 1977, researchers from the University of Guelph conducted a study to determine how effective bug zapper products are at killing mosquitoes and reducing mosquito populations where they are used. They found that just 4.1% of the insects killed in the bug zappers were female (and therefore biting) mosquitoes. The study also found the yards with bug zappers had higher numbers of female mosquitoes than those without bug zappers.





    University of Notre Dame researchers conducted a similar study in 1982, with similar results. In an average night, a single bug zapper in South Bend, Indiana, killed 3,212 insects, but only 3.3% of the dead insects were female mosquitoes. In addition, these researchers found that the UV light seemed to draw more mosquitoes to the area, leading to more mosquito bites.


    In 1996, researchers at the University of Delaware tallied an entire summer's worth of dead bugs from bug zappers. Of a total of 13,789 insects killed in the bug zappers, a paltry 0.22% of them were biting mosquitoes or gnats. Worse, almost half of the dead insects were harmless, aquatic insects, an important food for fish and other stream inhabitants. These insects help control pest insect populations, meaning bug zappers could actually make pest problems worse.



    Scientists at the UF/IFAS Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory in Vero Beach, Florida, also examined the effectiveness of bug zappers in 1997. A single bug zapper in their study killed 10,000 insects in one night, but just eight of the dead bugs were mosquitoes.

    The most natural part of the food chain for this problem, provides the answer. Sid is correct when he mentions the humble gecko. Trained teams of gecko, or bats is the answer. No need for the SF gecko here. The only downside is cleaning up the little turds.

    No problem. Only a mini poop scoop is needed.
