Mosquito Lure and Trapping Device Invented (SKC-283)

Share Article

InventHelp, founded in 1984 in Pittsburgh, is attempting to submit this idea, Neil's Mosquito Trap, to applicable companies for their consideration.

Recently, news channels have been filled with stories on the Zika virus. The CDC has even issued travel alerts to areas where this virus is spreading. This is why an inventor from Pago Pago, American Somoa, has developed NEIL'S MOSQUITO TRAP, a trap that lures and captures egg-bearing female mosquitoes. A prototype is available.

"I was inspired to develop my idea after contracting the Zika virus. I also used to work with an entomologist and on various mosquito projects," said the inventor. NEIL'S MOSQUITO TRAP reduces the mosquito population, thus minimizing the potential for disease transmission to humans. Although it aims to eradicate female mosquitos, it does not endanger the ecology. It also doesn't require insecticide or batteries, and it has an environmentally-friendly design. Unlike other mosquito traps, this one keeps the mosquitoes intact and undamaged for research purposes.

The original design was submitted to the National Sales office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
