|20140130399||DEVICES AND METHODS FOR A DURABLE INSECT BAIT STATION - The present invention discloses devices and methods for a durable insect bait station. Such devices including a membrane for providing access to the bait station, the membrane adapted to be permeable to volatile components, the membrane configured to allow easy insect-probe penetration, and to be resistant to degradation caused by outdoor environmental conditions and/or harsh indoor environmental conditions. Preferably, the membrane has at least one inclusion. Preferably, the membrane has at least one perforation. Preferably, the device further includes a bait core for providing bait to the bait station, the bait core including a sugar-source bait, at least one oral and/or contact insect toxin, and a solvent, wherein the bait core is configured to be substantially in direct contact with the membrane. Most preferably, the bait core further includes an odorant. Most preferably, the bait core further includes a fibrous material as a support for the membrane.||05-15-2014|
|20100229459||DEVICES FOR TRAPPING INSECTS - The present invention discloses trapping devices for biting (e.g. mosquitoes, sand flies, black flies, and biting midges) and nuisance flies (e.g. houseflies, filth flies, and fruit flies). The outdoor solution for biting flies includes a solar panel, a housing, a bag, and a ventilator located in the housing. The ventilator creates a capture zone having an airflow toward the bag. A CO2 generator, chemical attractants, a heat source, and a UV light attract mosquitoes to the capture zone. The chemical attractants are released continuously, the CO2 is released in pulses, and the ventilator and UV are operated in independent programmable intervals. The device is efficient in energy consumption and CO2 production. Other trapping devices are disclosed having a combination of insect-attracting mechanisms including a ventilator. Novel insect zappers including a ventilator are disclosed as well. Indoor and outdoor solutions for insects including biting and nuisance flies.||09-16-2010|
|20100024278||METHODS AND DEVICES FOR ATTRACTING AND TRAPPING INSECTS - Trapping devices for biting and nuisance flies, and fleas are disclosed. Device optionally include: a trap housing; a trapping surface, positioned in the trap housing, for trapping insects, the trapping surface having an exposed sticky side; a light-emission module, positioned in the trapping surface, having at least one LED light source; a light-transmitting casing for covering the light-emission module, a heating film for emitting heat in a vicinity of the trapping surface, an attractant compartment in the trap housing; an attractant drawer configured to be inserted into the attractant compartment, and configured to hold at least one insect attractant; and at least one attractant-dispersant aperture configured to emit at least one insect attractant in front of the trapping surface. Other disclosed devices include a trapping ramp for catching fleas, and a shadow mode for enhancing insect attraction. Other disclosed devices include an attractant combined with a sticky sheet.||02-04-2010|
