Chase mosquitoes out of your town
Mosquitoes, especially Tiger mosquitoes, are a real problem in towns and villages and have an impact on the comfort of both the local population and tourists, as well as posing a health risk by spreading diseases. Like Hyères, Marseilles, le Sambuc or Carpentras, choose Qista and get rid of mosquitoes in your neighbourhoods!
The Qista mosquito trap solution can combat the inconveniences and risks caused by mosquitoes in a sustained and effective manner, without any danger to people and ecosystems.
Quality of life is essential to the development of your city
Mosquito attacks devalue your neighbourhoods and affect the lives of residents and tourists. Outdoor enthusiasts are well aware that, in some cities, events are totally spoiled by mosquito attacks at the end of the day and people do not dare go out for night markets, drinks and dinner on the harborharbour, outdoor theatres/shows, etc.
With Qista's anti-mosquito solution, you provide residents and the public with mosquito-free streets and terraces.
Add value to your real estate by equipping your neighbourhoods, with a significant reduction of nuisances and risks related to the mosquitoes for your residents.
Rapidly exploit mosquito-infested areas and eliminate the health risks associated with the insect.
Tourism and local life

Strongly reduce the spread of diseases borne by mosquitoes (and tiger mosquitoes) in the vicinity of healthcare facilities.
Intelligent and practical
As real tools for health protection, a range of new features are available for communities and local authorities via the Qista software:
Numerous communities have already benefited from the progress Qista is making in terms of vector control. Arranging a set of traps strategically throughout a town or neighbourhood does more than just chase mosquitoes away: you can comprehensively monitor infestation levels thanks to cross tabulation of the cumulative data provided by the Qista software.
This data constitutes “big health data” and can be passed on to the relevant authorities. You can therefore view a map of the presence of mosquito populations in your neighbourhood, town, district or even region and prioritise your vector control action in those areas most densely populated by mosquitoes.
There is a real sense of relief for the inhabitants of this town in the Var who have finally been able to make the most of their outside space without being attacked by mosquitoes at the end of the day.
The people of Hyères were able to witness the efficiency of the Qista mosquito traps during the summer of 2019. The local authorities asked Qista to strategically install 157 traps across the town in order to stem the problem of mosquitoes.
The aim was to the reduce the problems caused by mosquitoes in the region using a green and sustainable strategy as an alternative to chemical processes.
In 2015 and 2016, Sambuc en Camargue also chose Qista, becoming the first pilot village to benefit from the Qista solution.
With their patented technology, the Qista mosquito control traps imitate human presence to attract the mosquitoes and suck them into their nets.
Each trap can attract and capture mosquitoes in a radius of up to 60 metres in an open area.
Clear whole neighbourhoods of mosquitoes!
To protect residential neighbourhoods areas and surrounding areasland, you can increase the surface area of the Qista solution’s protection by installing several traps to create a protective barrier.
Well arranged, the traps stop the mosquitoes from approaching from the laying areas. This large-scale invisible border has the double advantage of preventing mosquitoes from entering urban areas and is extremely effective against their multiplication.
The installation and maintenance of Qista anti-mosquito traps do not require specific authorisations or qualifications.
The traps can be installed by a member of your technical team. The traps can be connected to the public electricity network and require only 2 consumables for optimal operation.
Charging can be done at any time of the day during the season.
Here is a diagram showing the main maintenance accessories.
Clean mosquito control: take action for your citizens
Display your commitment to eco-friendly health protection with a Clean Mosquito Control certification and show your citizens the action you have implemented to offer them optimal comfort without bites and limit the transmission of illnesses caused by mosquitoes.
The Clean Mosquito Control certification is a visible sign of your commitment to your citizens and enables you to highlight your work to support eco-friendly mosquito control. Your commitment means that you are part of a collective movement to demonstrate that health safety within towns and local areas is possible while at the same time protecting citizens, animal species and ecosystems from the toxic products which are too often used.
Choose Qista’s eco-friendly mosquito control solution and advertise the fact by requesting the Clean Mosquito Control certification for your residential areas, communal areas (public gardens, parks, etc.) and establishments serving the most vulnerable (nurseries, retirement homes, schools, etc.).
Use of your mosquito trap can depend on your district, the weather or how the number of mosquitoes changes.
The number of mosquitoes is constantly increasing, particularly the tiger mosquito: the presence of mosquitoes may now be felt in February when the mosquito season used to only start in April or May. The same is true at the end of the season.
To pre-empt the tourist season and prevent the arrival of mosquitoes, think about ordering your traps during the low season for optimal set-up and installation in time.
The Qista anti-mosquito traps are most effective in springtime, and in mild weather, which are favourable conditions for the arrival of female mosquitoes.
In high season, for optimal efficiency, Qista recommends using the traps, both preventively and curatively, between 4pm-12am.
In case of rain or strong winds you should turn off the unit and save on consumables.
Finally, Qista Urban Traps are designed to be installed outdoors environment and withstand all weather conditions during the season of use, before wintering and storage.
