Atlas is a biocide based on natural molecule against mosquitoes vector population cause of diseases such us Malaria, Dengue and the new emergence Zika. Atlas has no impact on the environment cause mosquitoes become the transmission tool to spread the biocide among mosquito vector population. Atlas doesn’t kill the mosquitoes, but it strongly affects Anopheles and Aedes female biology, interfering with biting and oviposition mosquito behaviour, decreasing their capacity to bite and lay the eggs. Fewer mosquitoes able to bite means fewer mosquitoes able to transmit diseases. Atlas represents a concrete and effective solution against mosquito-borne diseases, that threaten more than 3 billion people all around the world.
