Timbalan Menteri Kesihatan, Datuk Seri Hilmi Yahaya, berkata produk itu yang diuji keberkesanannya berjaya membunuh 80 peratus daripada jumlah nyamuk aedes yang melekat pada permukaan melekit pelampung MyMAT.

"Statistik kes denggi daripada Januari hingga 14 April, menunjukkan peningkatan 10.6 peratus iaitu 40,316 kes berbanding 36,443 kes bagi tempoh sama tahun lalu.

"Susulan itu, kementerian menyambut baik usaha pihak terbabit membangunkan produk MyMat sejak tahun 2000 bagi mencegah pembiakan nyamuk aedes," katanya pada sidang media selepas merasmikan majlis pelancaran produk itu di Institut Pengurusan Kesihatan.

How MyMAT® Works?

- MyMAT® trap adult mosquitoes (Aedes, Culex and etc) that want to lay egg or rest in it.

- After 1-2 weeks, MyMAT® will attract more mosquitos as a breeding and resting place.

- Mosquitoes that entered into MyMAT® will stick to the surface of sticky ring on the top of the floater.

- The mosquito that stuck on the sticky ring will not be able to escape and eventually will die.

- When a mosquito enters into MyMAT®, it will attract other mosquitoes to join in.

- Even if mosquito managed to lay eggs into the water on the fine mesh net, the larvae will not survive as it will drown due to its larger size and it will not be able to breathe through the fine net in the middle of floater.

OPTIONAL: USAGE OF LARVAE POISON
 
- Larvae extirpator such as Bti (Bacillus thuringiensis) or temephos (Abate) can be used with the dose suggested by the manufacturer.
 
- Research shows that MyMAT® that added with 30mg Bti attracts more mosquitos in comparison with the MyMAT® without the Bti.
 
- In addition, Bti usage will ensure that all immature larvae die within the period of 3 months (in condition that the water that contains Bti in the MyMAT® is not disposed).
