Mega-Catch™ Mosquito Traps Provide Relief for Canadians feeling the bite
PR Log - Jul 20, 2011 - A week on from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Canadian visit, it was mosquitoes not royals making headlines.  And Edmonton scored the dubious honour of being named the mosquito capital of Canada - a title formerly held by Winnipeg.  The Toronto Sun reported football players were under attack: “Skeeters put bite on Esks practice”, prompting coach Kavis Reed to pull his team, the Edmonton Eskimos, off the practice field because of mosquitoes. "They were a distraction," he said. "They were flying into players eyes".

Unfortunately mosquitoes are not just a distraction.  According to Canada’s public health agency (PHAC) there are 74 known species of mosquitoes in Canada and while not all mosquitoes are disease carriers, the debilitating and potentially fatal West Nile virus infection has been found in 10 of these.

Fortunately for Canadians, stocks of Mega-Catch’s™ next generation Pro 900 Series mosquito traps, along with the mosquitoes, have arrived at the company’s new Toronto warehouse.  It was the emergence of West Nile Virus in Canada in 2002 that triggered the public’s interest in finding ways of controlling mosquitoes around the home and contributed to the success of Mega-Catch’s™ earlier 600/800 Series mosquito traps.  

Evolving Technology
EnviroSafe Technologies, developer and manufacturer of Mega-Catch™ Pro 900 Series Mosquito Traps, believe the next generation represents a dramatic increase in trap capabilities.  Using no pesticides or propane, these state of the art, smart traps, successfully mimic sensory signals which attract not only mosquitoes, but other common biting insects including black flies, sand flies and biting midges. Because each mosquito species is unique, with different characteristics and feeding habits, Mega-Catch™ developed their multi-attractant traps specifically to appeal to a wider range of mosquito species.  

When used as part of an integrated approach to DIY mosquito control, this proven trapping system may potentially limit the risk of diseases like West Nile virus.
