Collaborate: Automatic Mosquito Ovitrap

By January 23, 2024February 7th, 2024No Comments

FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Mississippi State University’s Automatic Mosquito Ovitrap technology, which is a mosquito trap that operates for a year without external power and without harming people, pets, or beneficial insects. The advantages of this technology are that it is eco-friendly, has a proven technique, convenient, and doesn’t cause pesticide resistance.

This technology can be deployed in communities that are opposed to mosquito spraying, in rural and undeveloped areas, and in areas with pesticide-resistant mosquitoes. The global mosquito trap market is expected to grow from $397.9 million in 2023 to $421 million in 2024. By 2034, the market is predicted to increase by 6.30%, to $775.5 million.

Mississippi State University’s Automatic Mosquito Ovitrap technology is ready for collaboration (licensing, partnerships, industry feedback, etc.). Is your company the right fit?
