American Biophysics Corp. has introduced Lurex, a new attractant specifically designed for customers who have the Asian Tiger Mosquito (Aedes albopictus). Octenol has been found to be less effective in trapping Asian Tiger Mosquitoes. If the Asian Tiger Mosquito is the predominant pest in your area, we recommend that you try Lurex What is Lurex? Lurex is a specially formulated attractant developed specifically to attract the Asian Tiger Mosquito. What is Lurex made of? Lurex is made of natural compounds that simulate human sweat. Who should use Lurex? Customers who live in areas where Asian Tiger is the predominant mosquito should use Lurex instead of octenol. As of 2000, the Asian Tiger Mosquito had been found in 26 states in the U.S. and in the last four years has migrated rapidly from the Southeastern states into the Northeastern states, Midwest, and Northern U.S. We recommend the use of octenol for customers who live within about 10 miles from the coast, where salt marsh mosquitoes and no-see-ums are most likely the predominant pests.
