How to Safely Kill Mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes are one of the most common pests in our daily life. They are also very dangerous insects. Their presence is often a great annoyance to our summer life. Mosquitoes are also notorious for the diseases they transmit, such as malaria, Japanese encephalitis, dengue fever, Zika virus disease, filariasis, etc. They can do serious harm to our health by spreading multiple diseases. Therefore, when we talk about effective family pest killing, the killing and control of mosquitoes is always an important task whenever the weather gets warmer each year.

For mosquitoes, for a long time, people have come up with many kinds of killing and controlling methods. In general, these methods can be basically divided into chemical methods, physical methods and organic ones. Chemical methods refer to the use of a variety of synthetic insecticide products made through traditional chemical synthesis methods to kill and prevent mosquitoes. Physical method refers to the use of physical equipment to capture or kill mosquitoes. Organic methods refer to the emphasis of the use of common ingredients that can be found in our daily life to achieve mosquito control. So, which one is the best? For these mosquito killing and control methods, different people have different opinions.

Why are Synthetic Insecticides still the Best?

1. The simplest product operation
After years of use of synthetic insecticide products, the operation and protective measures for these products have been mature. In physical prevention, the choice of location and time of use can be an operational hassle. In organic pest control, in order to achieve a non-chemical treatment of pests, the operator need to spend a lot of time monitoring the effect of the product. And sometimes, there should be timely intervention of the operation. In the case of sudden pest outbreaks, such organic methods are often ineffective.

2. An easier dosage control
After years of accumulation of operational experience, experienced operators have been very clear about the validity period and scope of function of chemical synthetic insecticide products. Compared with the uncertainty about the effects in organic pest control, the operator will feel more comfortable with the use of synthetic pesticides than they do with other methods.

3. A quicker effect and a higher killing efficiency
It has long been known that chemicals contained synthetic insecticide products work fastest that any other methods. Therefore, in terms of pest killing efficiency, synthetic insecticide products are more advantageous than organic insecticide products which are slow or even ineffective.

4. A more accurate targeting ability
We need to acknowledge that neither synthetic insecticide products nor organic insecticide products can be 100% accurate in targeting the pests. But by comparison, with years of research on the chemical composition of synthetic insecticides, synthetic insecticide products tend to target the pests more accurately than other methods. It can be said that many organic pesticide products are still at their experimental stage. Moreover, there is more uncertainty in the nature of those organic pesticide products.

5. They cost less
In general, the production cost of synthetic insecticides is lower than that of organic insecticides because the synthesis of the chemical ingredients has long been technically mature. When the effectiveness of chemical ingredients is talked about, the active ingredients in organic insecticides tend to have a very short duration after applied. Therefore, in order to ensure the continuous pest killing and control effect, it will be necessary to use these organic insecticides more frequently. This is bound to increase the economic cost. On the contrary, synthetic insecticides do not have such problem. So, they cost less than organic insecticides.

Therefore, to sum up, we respect the environmental protection concept advocated by the organic pest control methods, but still we don’t believe that organic methods can gain an advantage over traditional chemical methods in the short term. We believe that the combination of the rational use of low toxicity, high efficiency and low residue insecticides and the proper deployment of physical pest control equipment is the most feasible approach for pest killing and control at present. We have always been taking high efficiency, low toxicity and safety as the concept for our product research and development. We strive to pursue the balance between effectiveness, convenience and safety.

Active Ingredients Contained in our Products

Pyrethroids are the main active ingredients in the above-mentioned Bottle Hot Mist, Poultry Pest-killing Water Emulsion and Water Emulsion. Pyrethroids are biomimetic insecticides synthesized by structural modification of natural pyrethrums. Pyrethroids have an increasing family members in the past decades including permethrin, cypermethrin, ethofenprox, deltamethrin, cyhalothrin and so on. They are a new category of broad-spectrum insecticide ingredients after organochlorine and organophosphorus. For their advantages of non-accumulation, low toxicity and safe use, they are widely used in the pest control of food, vegetables, fruit trees and other crops. They have become one of the mainstream active ingredients of agricultural and health insecticides.

The main active ingredient in our Insecticidal Bait Powder is imidacloprid. Imidacloprid is one of the neonicotinoid insecticide ingredients. Its prominent effects are reflected in broad spectrum, high efficiency, low toxicity and low residue. It has multiple killing effects such as contact toxicity, gastric toxicity and internal absorption. The mechanism of imidacloprid is to kill pests by blocking the normal transmission of the central nervous system. The ingredient will work within a short period of time after use, and the effect can last as long as 25 days. And the effect of the product is positively correlated with temperature. The higher the temperature is, the better the insecticidal effect will be. Insecticide products containing imidacloprid are mainly used to control various agricultural pests with stinging mouthparts as well as mosquitoes, ants, cockroaches and other household pests.

Are Organic Insecticides Overhyped?

Ideally, the control of any pests should include prevention, control and a variety of traditional and non-chemical methods. But in reality, things will sometimes be different. Since environmental protection attracts more and more attention, so many organic pest control methods have been popular in the recent decades, and they have been somewhat overemphasized. In many cases, organic methods are sometimes ineffective. Many organic solutions overemphasize that the ingredients they use in their products are non-toxic. But what we need to know is that the reason why insecticides are capable of killing and controlling pests is that the active ingredients they use are toxic in various degrees. The toxic effect of a certain insecticide on us is determined by two factors: the toxicity of the pesticide itself and users’ exposure. The popularity of organic pest killing methods has misled the users to some extent in the following aspects:

1. The effectiveness of organic solutions cannot be guaranteed. Large quantities of organic ingredients will be required to achieve the same results that can be easily achieved with a small amount of synthetic insecticides.

2. Many organic pest killing and control solutions have not been scientifically tested and proved. Although they are often made from seemingly risk-free ingredients, it doesn’t that the mixture won’t cause any negative consequences. For example, some organic insecticides may contain metals such as sulfur and zinc. If not used properly, they can pollute surface water and damage equipment. We all know vinegar, but what we don’t know is that when it is used as an herbicide, it may affect the growth of other plants. In addition, organic ingredients such as diatomite, rotenone and pleocidin have all been shown to be harmful to the living of bees.

3. Being organic itself does not mean that organic insecticides only kill targeted pests. Other non-target insects may also be affected or even killed when they are used

4. Organic insecticides are often more expensive than synthetic ones. And they tend to be slower in performance than their synthetic counterparts. Compared with synthetic insecticides which function soon after applied, this means more time and more labor work may be needed when these organic insecticides are used.

Therefore, what we really need to do will be to reasonably control the toxicity of insecticide ingredients through the optimization of the formulation and correct application. In addition, we also need to improve the targeting of pests and optimize the use of insecticides to avoid unnecessary human exposure. We understand that certain organic pest killing and control solutions can be effective against certain pests in certain circumstances, but we should not overemphasize that all organic solutions are superior to conventional synthetic insecticides.

To achieve the balance between the effectiveness and safety of insecticides, when making purchase, the best choices will always be those that are less toxic and at the same time, highly effective. We also take this as the purpose of our research and development of our insecticide products.
