Yearly Mosquito Preventative Maintenance

The In2Care mosquito trap lures and contaminates Aedes mosquitoes with a special slow-acting larvicide. This allows the mosquitos to spread the larvicide to other breeding sites that may be more difficult to locate. This method is effective because the mosquito larvae are not only killed inside the traps but also within its vicinity.
While there are a variety of mosquito prevention methods available, Pied Piper utilizes In2Care for the following reasons:
