It’s been a while since we’ve posted, so you may have seen some of these on social already, but we wanted to put it on our website in official blog form, so here we go. This project came to us from a very inventive man named Alan, who created the Tire Turtle – a device to help keep rainwater out of stacked used tires, and thus prevent mosquitos from breeding there. It turns out this is a huge problem, as the dampness and moisture retained in these tires is an ideal breeding ground for the little disease-carrying devils. A massive amount of people worldwide are affected by mosquito-borne illness, so anything that can displace or eliminate their breeding is welcome! We are sorry to report that the Tire Turtle Kickstarter campaign did not receive funding, although he has gotten a call from the producers of Shark Tank! Here’s hoping!
