UV LED Mosquitoe Trap from SETi and Seoul Viosys Hits the Market

Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc. (SETi) and Seoul Viosys announce the availability of the violeds™ MOSCLEAN, a new mosquito trap that captures more than 10 times as many mosquitos than conventional traps on the market today. The MOSCLEAN attracts mosquitos by using ultra violet LEDs that emit light in a targeted range. Independent research studies proved the MOSCLEAN mosquito trap to be highly effective on Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitos, both of which have been recently linked to transferring the Zika virus. The MOSCLEAN is now available for purchase for $34.95 on www.amazon.com.
