ATSB® has a low human and environmental risk assessments thanks to three key features:
- low insecticide loading.
- presence of a feeding deterrent (Bittrex) to prevent children and adult feeding on the bait.
- protection of the bait matrix by a membrane to avoid water, soil and non-target organisms’ exposure.
ATSB® is proven effective against the major disease-carrying mosquitoes (Anopheles, Culex and Aedes) as well as sandflies.
Two bait stations are hung on the exterior walls of each structure at a height of 1.8 meters above the ground, for a period of six months. Homeowners will be entrusted to keep the bait stations on their walls to enable ATSB® to provide protection.
