CEO of Mega-Catch™ Mosquito Traps Announces Retirement
Outgoing CEO of Mega-Catch™, which produces some of the best biting insect and mosquito control devices on the market, is seeking licensees with the expertise to optimize the brand, to manufacture and distribute its innovative products worldwide.
Peebles, who has led the New Zealand based company for almost 12 years, will remain as a consultant, with a seat on the board when he retires. In the U.S. an enormous amount of consumer interest for devices designed to attract, trap and kill mosquitoes was generated by the 2003 outbreak of West Nile Virus, which saw 9,862 cases and 264 deaths.

But when it comes to mosquito control, Peebles is backing his high-tech, Eco-friendly Mega-Catch™ traps as the number one choice for homeowners and gardeners over the propane and pesticide alternatives. “Consumers care more than ever about green industry. They want products that have better environmental and health attributes, and thanks to the world wide web, they have the resources to find the products that meet their requirements” says Peebles.
