Mosquitoes are of major Veterinary and Medical importance due to their role as Vector for transmission of various parasitic, bacterial and viral diseases. Mosquitoes are distributed throughout the world. Mosquitoes feed on fruit juices and sugar water with male Mosquitoes normally existing on such food, but the females are bloodsuckers and require a meal of blood in order to lay eggs. The females seem to be attracted by the warmth radiating from the skin of their host, either people or animals. They are active at night and are attracted mainly by carbon dioxide emitted by their host, while during the day they hide in areas of darkness, behind the hanging cloth, lofts or shoe racks etc. This study by Ignatius Orwin Noronha at Leowin Solutions Private Limited evaluates the effective performance of trapping of mosquito vectors in cowsheds, poultry farms and in livestock farms as well as the various benefits of using the MozziQuit device.
‘Increase in Milk Yield and Weight of Bovines by using MozziQuit Mosquito Trap Device in Cow Sheds’
All warm-blooded vertebrates are affected. In large populations Mosquitoes cause irritation and extensive blood loss to livestock resulting in anaemia, reduced productivity of milk and sometimes even death. Mosquitoes are a great nuisance and their bites do cause painful reactions making cows panic. They also play an important role as intermediate hosts and as vectors in several important parasitic and viral diseases of domestic animals and man viz., filariosis, Canine heart worm disease, Malaria, dengue, chikungunya, equine viral encephalitis etc. The Author and the Managing Director of Leowin Solutions Pvt. Ltd. is the Innovator of MozziQuit mosquito trap device priced Rs. 1,800/- per unit inclusive of 18% GST which attracts, traps and kills female mosquitoes every day in large numbers at lowest operating cost of less than 10 paisa per day without use of any chemicals or consumables or emission of any UV Radiation very safe for use in cow sheds (www.mozziquit. com). MozziQuit device was evaluated to find the possibility of its use for providing relief to cows and animals in live farms. The study was carried out by Dr. Placid E. D’Souza, Professor & Head, Dept of Veterinary Parasitology as well as by Staff from constituent Veterinary Colleges of Karnataka Veterinary, Animal & Fisheries Sciences University of Bidar Dr. H. Dhanalakshmi, Dr. B. S. Pradeep, Dr. G. S. Mamatha and Assistant Professors under instructions from Dr. H.R.V. Reddy, Director of Research of KVAFSU of Bidar. The study reveals relief to workers in cow shed from mosquito bites besides increase in Milk Yield as well as increase in Weight of Bovines after using MozziQuit in cow shed as the cows get maximum relief by trapping and killing of biting mosquitoes by MozziQuit device everyday.
