AEDES

About

A trap allowing the study of highly resistant mosquitoes causing Dengue fever

Aedes is a trap that seeks to capture mosquitoes, keep them alive and use them as scientific research material. This will help scientists develop better preventative campaigns against diseases such as Dengue fever, of which Latin America is currently experiencing its highest ever epidemic levels. During the winter, mosquito eggs grow and during the summer they infect populations leading to healthcare systems collapsing. This trap aims to alleviate this cycle.
