A new, highly effective mosquito trap system against blood-sucking insects (gnats, blackflies, mosquitoes, horseflies, etc.). The operating principle is based on the following factors that attract mosquitoes:
- the housing is heated to a human body temperature;
- carbon dioxide (СО2) emission which imitates breath;
- discharge of attractant substance (Nonanal), having high efficacy in attracting mosquitoes, which has been proven by American entomologists Walter Leal and his colleague Zain Syed. According to their complex research, a female mosquito navigates her prey not only by the location of heat and CO2, most actively it follows the concentrations of nonanal contained in the sweat of humans and animals.
