The second generation bed net, effective against mosquitoes resistant to insecticides. Long-lasting and sustainable.

Benefits of Interceptor® G2

  • Proven to be effective, even against insecticide-resistant mosquitoes
  • Safe and ready to use
  • Controls mosquitoes on contact with the net
  • Long-lasting performance
Interceptor® G2 from BASF is the first WHO-recommended mosquito net based on non-pyrethroid chemistry to beat insecticide-resistant mosquitoes. Its distinctive black and white stripes distinguish it from currently used mosquito nets. Volker Frenz, development chemist for Interceptor® G2, checks a net sample in the laboratory.

Effective Against Resistant Mosquitoes

A combination of preventive measures is essential to eradicate malaria effectively and sustainably, including indoor residual spraying, larvicides and mosquito nets. The Interceptor® G2 net is treated with a new generation insecticide, chlorfenapyr, and is proven to be effective against mosquitoes that are resistant to conventional insecticides, as well as being safe and easy to use.

The discovery and innovation application of chlorfenapyr is a breakthrough for BASF in the fight against malaria.

Chlorfenapyr

A new mode of action – which also works on resistant mosquitoes!

The World Health Organization

The World Health Organization (WHO) has included Interceptor® G2 on its List of Prequalified Vector Control Products. This means that BASF can bring Interceptor® G2 to market. A second product based on chlorfenapyr, Sylando® 240SC, an indoor spray for walls and ceilings is currently being evaluated by the WHO.

Public Health

Every year, more than one billion people suffer from mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue, chikungunya, West Nile Virus and yellow fever. Malaria alone affects over 200 million people and kills nearly 438,000 every year.

This 2006 photograph depicted a female <i>Aedes aegypti</i> mosquito while she was in the process of acquiring a blood meal from her human host, who in this instance, was actually the biomedical photographer, James Gathany, here at the Centers for Disease Control.  You ll note the feeding apparatus consisting of a sharp, orange-colored  fascicle , which while not feeding, is covered in a soft, pliant sheath called the "labellum , which retracts as the sharp stylets contained within pierce the host's skin surface, as the insect obtains its blood meal. The orange color of the fascicle is due to the red color of the blood as it migrates up the thin, sharp translucent tube.

The first reported epidemics of Dengue (DF) and dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) occurred in 1779-1780 in Asia, Africa, and North America.  The near simultaneous occurrence of outbreaks on three continents indicates that these viruses and their mosquito vector have had a worldwide distribution in the tropics for more than 200 years. During most of this time, DF was considered a mild, nonfatal disease of visitors to the tropics. Generally, there were long intervals (10-40 years) between major epidemics, mainly because the introduction of a new serotype in a susceptible population occurred only if viruses and their mosquito vector, primarily the <i>Aedes aegypti</i> mosquito, could survive the slow transport between population centers by sailing vessels.

Mosquitoes

Successful mosquito control is best achieved by recognition and treatment of breeding sites. A regular program of inspections should be organized so that insect activity is stopped at its very source.
