Seoul Viosys Co Ltd says that its Violeds UV LED technology has been applied in the mosquito trap of South Korean pharmaceutical company Yuhan Corp.

Products with Violeds technology were first launched in summer 2016, when Zika virus was prevalent around the world. Violeds has also been used in NASA’s International Space Station (ISS).

Applied to the mosquito trap, Violeds represents eco-friendly insect attraction technology that can eliminate harmful insects such as mosquitoes and fruit flies using a UV LED light source. It has the advantage of being harmless to the human body because the amount of UV rays is two-thousandths that of sunlight and one-tenth that of fluorescent lighting.

“The product is harmless to the environment and human body as it does not contain chemical components and it attracts mosquitoes using a UV LED light source, unlike mercury-based mosquito traps,” says Seoul Viosys’ UV sales vice president Sang Kwon Park.

The performance verification test by professor Dong Kyu Lee of Kosin University (advisor for the Malaria Control Center at the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) showed that the capability of Violeds to attract mosquitoes is up to four times higher than that of conventional mosquito traps.

In addition, University of Florida entomologist professor Philip Koehler has proved that products using Violeds technology are more than thirteen times more attractive for yellow fever mosquito and more than nine times more attractive for anopheline-type mosquitoes than the standard device of the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Seoul Viosys says that it also got the same result from mosquito attraction performance tests conducted with professors in South Korea, Vietnam and Indonesia.
