The study was carried out by the team of Scientists of National Institute of Malaria Research – Indian Council of Medical Research, field unit of Bangalore during January- March 2017 in dry season and September-October 2017 in wet season in construction sites in and around Mangalore city of Karnataka. Based on mosquito breeding and adults resting, construction sites were selected and traps were placed indoor and outdoor. The traps were set up and operated according to the suggested manufacturer’s recommendations for 24 hours for two nights in a month. Parallel conventional traps imported from USA costing Rs. 30,000 per unit were placed for comparison. MozziQuit, trapped all species of diseases spreading mosquitoes found in and around Mangalore city i.e. Anopheles mosquitoes especially malaria vector Anopheles stephensi, Culex mosquitoes especially human filariasis vector Culex quinquefasciatus and JE vector Cx. tritaenorhynchus, Aedes mosquitoes especially Dengue vector Aedes aegypti and Chikungunya vector Ae. albopictus. Over all the number of mosquitoes including vector mosquitoes trapped in MozziQuit traps were 2.5 times more than number of mosquitoes trapped in conventional traps. MozziQuit traps may be used as vector control tools for indoor and outdoor use under National Programmes.
