How the ADV_MKS ™ works
The ADV_MKS ™ relies on the mosquito’s natural hunting techniques of heat sensing and carbon dioxide detection. It mimics body temperatures and breathing patterns of humans, horses, livestock, poultry, and domesticated pets by the release of carbon dioxide. Through thermal imagery and precisely measured releases of CO2, mosquitoes are attracted to the unit, and captured and eliminated.
A photo sensor turns the unit on at night and off at daylight. For the unit to come on earlier or stay on later, you simply place the cover on the photocell and plug the ADV_MKS ™ into a timer for desired settings.
Body heat signatures are produced with a heat blanket in the heat chamber cycling every few minutes from 85 Degree Fahrenheit to 110 Degree Fahrenheit. This feature is performed continuously when unit is running.
The CO2 is warmed and released to mimic breathing. When the unit first comes on at night, the CO2 is programmed to release for 5 hours. It cycles on for 2 minutes and off for 1.5 minutes, releasing CO2 equivalent to what a human being or a mammal normally exudes.
The fan produces different air currents. One air current creates a vacuum to draw mosquitoes into the unit. Other flows away from the unit carrying and disbursing the attractants away from the unit magnifying the attractants. The fan also acts as a killing mechanism throwing mosquitoes against the inner wall. Plus, mosquitoes are killed when they pass through the electrocution grid.
The interior electrocution grid is spaced to create a kill zone when mosquitoes pass through, with a 99% kill ratio. The remains are then expelled through the bottom of the unit and returned to the environment.
The capture net is to be used only for selecting the best location for placement of the ADV_MKS ™ units. Continued use of the capture net decreases the airflow by 1 mph.
Table shows the present multiplication rate of mosquitoes which could be eliminated by use of “ADV_MKS ™”:
|Mosquitoes Day 1||No. of female Mosquitos on Day 100 assuming 50% female out of 300 eggs||No. of female Mosquitos on Day 200 assuming 50% female out of 300 eggs||No. of female Mosquitos on Day 300 assuming 50% female out of 300 eggs|
