Vector Control: Reduce Mosquito & Tick Populations with Green Solutions

ISCA is developing a line of green Attract & Kill products for vector management that are long-lasting, effective, and dramatically reduce the use of insecticides.
Mosquitoes, biting flies, black flies, ticks, and others may carry and transmit diseases to humans—a concern to governments, businesses, and individuals alike. They are not only vectors of disease but also nuisances that reduce access to the outdoors, regional house values, tourism, and even other economic activities.

Mosquitoes, the most commonly known vector, are one of the deadliest pests alive and can transmit diseases such as Zika, malaria, West Nile fever, Chikungunya, and more. Ticks are also of concern. In addition to transmitting the debilitating Lyme disease parasite, there is an ever growing global threat from novel tick-borne diseases.

The ISCA Approach to Integrated Vector Management (IVM)

Rather than “carpet bombing” entire areas with conventional broad spectrum pesticides, ISCA’s IVM technologies combine the power of semiochemical attraction with the lethal effect of tiny amounts of insecticide to attract vectors to contact or feed on the formulation. This allows us to use far less insecticide per area and to be highly efficient in killing vectors without affecting humans, pets, wildlife, or non-target insects.
