The next generation in MOSQUITO CONTROL
Westham's technology and products provide an effective tool in the fight against mosquito-borne diseases as well as nuisance mosquitoes.
Westham introduces a novel mosquito control paradigm with its ATSB® (Attractive Targeted Sugar Bait) solution, which is commercially used in the U.S. and is currently being validated for Malaria control in Africa.
Male and female mosquitoes feed on sugar from plants for energy. ATSB® is exploiting this drive by combining a proprietary sugar attractant (the bait) with a minimal risk toxin (active ingredient). Once ingested, ATSB® acts as a gut toxin killing both males and females and ultimately crashing mosquito populations.
Westham in Africa
ATSB® is the first outdoor vector-control intervention in Africa and is currently being tested for outdoor Malaria control in a large scale field study supported by the Innovative Vector Control Consortium (IVCC).
