Preventine MLC ensures that mosquitoes NEVER take flight

PREVENTINE MLC is a saturated complex aqueous solution containing minerals: Silver, Copper, Zinc, Aluminium and Gold.The microscopic action of these natural mineral ions break down the cell walls of the mosquito larvae and destroy the DNA structure. Further it breaks down bacteria which are destroyed through change in their enzyme pathways achieving a remarkable reduction in odour and E-coli colony counts when sprayed over food dumps, animal or human effluent being prime breeding sites for mosquitoes.

Preventine MLC 1 litre Concentrate

Preventine MLC is breaking the life-cycle of the mosquito at the larvae stage. It eliminates ALL mosquitoes at ALL four larvae stages together with  harmful bacteria and odour.

The female mosquito lays 100-250 eggs 3-4 times during her short lifespan which develop into larvae and then pupae. Preventine MLC deprives eggs laid by each female mosquito  from reaching the final larval stage. the positive result of which is that yet another 1000+ fully developed mosquitoes will have been prevented from flying. This therefore ensures that adult females feeding on animal or human blood (essential for them to lay their eggs) will not deliver the deadly parasite, Plasmodium. (It should be noted that during periods of drought mosquito eggs remain dormant until such time as habitats are sufficiently saturated to induce hatching.

Preventine MLC has not been developed to kill flying insects. Spraying teams may be trained to focus on breeding sites ranging from sewers, areas around ponds, wet ground indentations in open food markets, hotel gardens, public parks and anywhere else that mosquitoes can lay their eggs.

Dilution & Detention Rates

Dilution of Preventine MLC concentrate with water for sprayers 1:1000 mix (1ml of MLC to 1 litre of water) achieves a 100% kill rate of larvae after a detention time of 24 hours. Without rainfall MLC will continue its effectiveness for 3 months after application. Heavy rainfall increases the MLC / water mix to around 1:25,000 but a 100% kill rate is still achieved 5 days after the original application of the MLC by spraying.

World Health Organisation (WH0) - Statistics 2012

An estimated 500 million people worlwide will be effected by the Plasmodium parasite which is carried and spread by mosquitoes. This parasite is responsible for killing 1.2 million people each year in Equatorial Africa , Far East, Middle East, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, China, South Pacific States and Islands, South and Central America.

2,800 children under the age of 5 years die each day in Africa alone from diseases which are spread by parasite carrying mosquitoes.

Resistance Build-up against chemicals has been known and accepted for many years.

Extract from a speech by Dr Uton Muchtar, Regional Director`s Office WHO - South East Asia - August 1997:-

The re-appearance of several mosquito vectors in most member States has been attributed to the failure of chemical control as a result of the mosquito vectors developing resistance to insecticides. In the present scenario mosquitoes have developed resistance to all the major groups of insecticides including biocides"


Preventine MLC Field Tests in Ghana

Preventine large scale field tests for larvae counts before and after application of MLC have been conducted at a number of sites with WHO recommended scoop tests to provide clear results in compliance with WHO protocols. Preventine teams conducted tests in open drains where sewer water was present and around water pools and vegetation.


Preventine MLC Field Trials in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)

Extensive field trials have taken place in the DRC where scoop tests were also conducted in accordance with WHO protocols.


Laboratory Testing

Thorough laboratory testing has been undertaken at the University of Missouri, Columbia and the University of Lincoln, Missouri in the USA. Papers have been written on Preventine MLC by:
