The A-G-O (Autocidal Gravid Ovitrap) was originally developed by the CDC to control the mosquitoes that transmit Zika, Dengue Fever, Dengue Fever, Yellow Fever, & Chikungunya. This Enoz Trap-N-Kill A-G-O Mosquito Trap version takes this scientifically developed trap and brings it to the home-owner. Mosquitoes are attracted to dark places with stagnant water to lay their eggs in and these traps mimic those locations. All you will need to add to this clever design is water and a little bit of hay or local dried grass. As mosquitoes arrive to the trap they will enter through the top of the Capture Chamber, but they'll be blocked by the metal screen and will land on the Sticky Board and be captured. Some eggs may still fall through and land in the water; but should they hatch they will not survive and cannot escape through the screen. Replace water and hay/grass every 8 weeks or so. Once the season ends, clean and store upside-down until you need it again.

Setting up the trap:
- Insert metal screen in bottom half of capture chamber and lock in place with metal wire, by pressing wire down over the screen.
- Pull apart Sticky Boards. Insert one sticky board into the catch chamber, STICKY SIDE FACING TOWARD CENTER.
- Lock the two capture chamber halves by inserting tabs and rotating counterclockwise .
- Add clean water (tap water, non-potable water or rainwater) to the trap, up to the overflow holes. Add one ounce of hay or local dried grass (not included) to the water. This creates an infusion that attracts mosquitoes.
- Securely attach the lid to the trap (If the lid has a tear tab, you'll need to remove it before attaching the lid).
- Seal the capture chamber by firmly pressing into hole of the lid.
- Place trap on the ground, near or under vegetative cover.
