The world’s first solution to eliminate all mosquito-borne diseases


PROBLEM

The mosquito is the deadliest animal on the planet. It kills nearly 1 million people every year by transmitting illnesses such as malaria, zika, dengue fever, but there has been no significant progress in reducing malaria cases in the world.

SOLUTION

The world's first ultra-effective mosquito-only phagostimulant (HMBPP). A novel, sustainable, and cost-effective way to fight against these small, yet deadly, foes by identifying and isolating natural compounds that target mosquitoes and modify their behavior. Unlike other solutions on the market, the product solely targets mosquitoes to feed on a natural toxin without affecting other species.
