Lori commented on The construction of Garden City to repel mosquito!

It is a beautiful, harmless but most likely useless method to fight against Zika. I think it is a good solution to reduce the population of insects in cities where gardening is part of recreation areas. But not a method to fight health threats in poor regions of South America.

The information where the disease spreads out, is essential for the control of epidemic diseases. I think a problem could be the missing having of smartphones and the lack of internet reception in some parts of the affected areas in South America. But still an excellent alert system.

Sounds really interesting, but do you have any additional information? For sure they will not provide us the chemical compound, but something about their pricing strategy or the production costs?
