A generalized mosquito lifespan is 42-56 days for an adult female, and 7-10 days for an adult male. A female can produce between 100-300 eggs in a raft every third night during its life as an adult. Over a forty-two day period a female can theoretically lay approximately 5100 eggs. It takes between 6 to 20 days (in ideal conditions) from the time a female mosquito lays her eggs until her offspring become matured adults. If she lays 300 eggs in a raft on her final day of life, it could be up to 76 days from the day she reached adulthood to the day her last offspring reached adulthood. Thus, the current use of ATSB’s kill only 90-95% of existing mosquitoes and do not fully affect future mosquito rates with a one-time application. ATSB-SRD lasts 90 days.
ATSB-SRD our patented device
Our patented mosquito control technology, the ATSB (attractive toxic sugar bait) SRD (slow-release device), is proven to dispel over 95% of localized mosquitos within 15 days. In most areas, the kill rate nears 100% as the device continues to kill future generations. After 90 days, and significantly warmer weather, the device must be re-applied for guaranteed mosquito reduction rates for the following 3 months. The ATSB-SRD fully functions as an attractant and killer for up to 90 days (rain dependent for longer success). The males enter looking for nectar (one of their favorite foods), females enter looking for blood (required prior to laying eggs), they eat a mixture that eventually causes their stomachs to rupture.
APPLY AT FIRST BITE. For best results, the ATSB-SRD needs to be applied as close as possible to the spring hatch. The hatch is weather dependent; best results have been recorded by applying the ATSB-SRD after the first sign of mosquitoes.
Most mosquitoes have a flight range of 1-3 miles. The ATSB slow-release device has exponential geometric growth returns in relation to the number of devices and the area covered for the reduction of mosquitos in the targeted area.
