Natural Vector Control

Natural Vector Control

Forrest is implementing its Natural Vector Control (NVC) solution to control mosquitoes. Harnessing a naturally occurring mechanism (RNAi) we produce 100% sterile Non-GM male mosquitoes that are released en-masse from airplanes to compete with the wild male population. Forrest's revolutionary operational process combines Modular Mobile Mosquito Units (MMMU) for mass production of NVCs and massive aerial release capabilities for deployment of efficient mosquito control.

 

 

NVC Advantages 


• In order to induce male mosquito sterility, we use RNAi technology which is based on a naturally occurring mechanism.
• The treatment is highly specific, enabling us to achieve male sterility without compromising the fitness of the mosquito.
• We collect eggs from the endemic mosquito populations to facilitate that they will be more highly adapted to compete.

• Forrest Safety Principles: 100% males (don't bite-don't transfer disease), 100% sterile.

• Aerial release capabilities facilitate massive and homogenousdeployment - up to 10 million mosquitoes per flight.

• Survey-based-targeted treatment of areas with limited access from the ground.

• We operate MMMUs for rapid deployment wherever needed.
