The Philippines has created DOST mosquito OL (Ovilarvicidal) trap is composed of a black plastic cup, a lawanit paddle, and OL pellets.

This is a good project, and needs encouraged.

DOST MOSQUITO OVICIDAL/LARVICIDAL (OL) TRAP SYSTEM

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

* Is a system used to control the population of the dengue carrying Aedes mosquitoes.

* It has three important parts: a black container, a small strip of lawanit measuring 
1"x6.5" for mosquitoes to lay their eggs on, and pellets as larvicide.

*The OL-Trap's ovicidal and larvicidal effect prevent the next generation of mosquitoes from reaching adulthood, thus curbin the Aedes mosquito population. 

HOW THE OL-TRAP WORKS?

* The idea is to attract Aedes mosquitos particularly to lay their eggs on the lawanit paddle.

* The trap creates optimum conditions for this species to lay its eggs: stagnant,c lean, clear water, dark area and damp rough surface.

*The eggs will either be trapped in the lawanit paddle or find its way into organic larvicide solution, where they are killed before transforming into adults.


ADVANTAGES

* The developed ovi/larvicidal trap system is effective in attracting Aedes mosquitoes and at the same time lethal to hatched larvae

*It is safe, cheap and make-use of natural active agent.

* The process is simple and can control the population of Aedes mosquitos
