Sinet Spark launched the project "Mosquitoes" in order to identify effective existing traps and safe drugs for mosquito control. The effectiveness of a garlic-based repellent will also be evaluated within the framework of the project.
At this stage, mosquito traps are being tested. The devices are installed in locations with different environmental conditions: near reservoirs, in thick-growing trees, and in private plots. Project volunteers conduct observations and fill out test logs.
During the implementation of the project it is planned to:
- conduct tests with drugs to determine the effectiveness against mosquitoes;
- drug tests have been carried out to determine the effectiveness against midges;
- to carry out spraying with a drug for mosquito control in the city central park of Yakutsk.
The results of tests on effective ways to control mosquitoes will be published on the portal Ykt.Ru.
