Filling water to the bucket over the inverted cones of the translucent ring and by introducing special pads ( 1 pad is included with the AQUALAB ) for the treatment of water creates an ideal environment for the oviposition of mosquitoes.
These pads are composed for the most part, rice starch, and gluten which enrich the water with nutrients particularly attractive to the larvae of the mosquito.
This availability of food for the larvae increases the chance that a female mosquito shall lay their eggs in these waters.

The larvae glide toward the bottom of the pot and rise back to the surface following the path that the door in the closed area of the ovitrappola.

Four ovitrappole are sufficient to protect areas from 2500 to 4000 square meters.

The rod of wood contained in the packaging (masonite) must be placed inside the funnel, which is immersed in the water with the rough surface upwards.
The tiger mosquitoes lay their eggs on the rough surface where they remain stuck together due to the secretion of sticky that is emitted during the deposition.
At the time of hatching, the larva falls in the water where he will continue his cycle while remaining trapped.
The common mosquitoes, instead they lay on the surface of the water.
