Laboratory tests proove the effectiveness of TRILED against mosquitoes
Research carried out at Camerino University demonstrates the ability of the yellow light of our light bulb to keep away from the environment various kinds of annoying and dangerous mosquitoes.
The tests confirm the effectiveness of the mosquito repellent function and record a substantial reduction in the mosquito population in the illuminated space.
The mosquito repellent light bulb uses technology already widely used in make-up and medical care. Its use to repel mosquitoes is an absolute novelty.
The special lamp emits a bright yellow light, which is used to shield LTV radiation. Once turned on, the yellow emission has the effect of moving away the mosquitoes from the illuminated space.
In order to determine the effectiveness of this mosquito repellent lamp in a closed environment, tests were carried out within 2 measuring cabins 8'x8Px20 '. Only in one of the two, the repellent lamp was placed at a distance of 2-3 meters from a human bait, while the other cabin, without the lamp, was used as a comparison term.
The mosquito population was estimated using Bare Leg Catch (BLC) techniques. BLC was conducted in both sites at the same time for 4 hours.
The mosquitoes collected in this study were exclusively those of the species Culex quinquefasciatus and Aedes albopictus, responsible for the spread of infectious diseases.
Guido Favia, Director of the School of Biosciences and Veterinary Medicine at the University of Camerino and coordinator of the Molecular Parasitology Research Project, certifies that the insectarium present in the University Department is qualified to carry out experiments of particular scientific value with mosquitoes.
Therefore, the experiment carried out by Bioveckblok attesting the repellency parameters of the light emitted by TRILED Baesten against different mosquito vectors are in line with all the experimental activities performed in the insectarium of the University of Camerino.
We have been testing the yellow color and we discovered a surprising thing: thanks to experiments in "cages" it was noticed that despite the mosquito have being stressed by the proximity to its prey an hemotek in a 20x20 cm cage, after an induction of about 1 hour of yellow TRILED lamp, the mosquito seems paralyzed and it lost appetite.
