Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus and method for controlling flying pest-type insects such as mosquitoes and flies. An insect trap (10) according to the invention includes a darkened chamber (18) into which insects are naturally drawn, with insect-ensnaring interior surfaces such as glue panels (20). One or more additional insect attractants beyond the darkened nature of the chamber may also be provided to enhance the effectiveness of the trap.

Un piège à insectes (10) conçu selon cette invention comprend une chambre sombre (18) vers laquelle les insectes sont naturellement attirés, cette chambre présentant des surfaces intérieures, par exemple des panneaux collants (20), permettant de prendre au piège les insectes. L'efficacité de ce piège peut en outre être améliorée par un ou plusieurs produits insectillices qui, comme l'aspect sombre de la chambre, attirent les insectes.
