Kill Mosquitoes - How it Works
There are over 3,500 species of mosquito throughout the world. But it is only the female of the species which bites as she searches out nourishment for her eggs. Mosquitoes find their human prey using a combination of sensory signals including light, shape, color, heat, movement and other by products of human activity like sweat (lactic acid) and breath (CO2).
Click on the buttons below for a description of how Mega-Catch™ Traps exploit these sensory signals using sophisticated design features to Attract, Trap and Kill mosquitoes.
NOTE: Traps featured in the videos are the 800/600 Mega-Catch™ Traps.
USDA research entomologist Dr Dan Kline, who regularly tests and conducts studies on mosquito traps, cites operator error as a major contributor to impaired trap performance. "It's important that people read and follow the owner's manual." says Kline. "Placement is a big issue - you need to keep the trap out of the immediate area where people gather, and try to put it between the people and the source of the mosquitoes."
Patience and experimentation are the keys to getting the best out of your Mega-Catch™ mosquito trap. For additional information on how to optimize trap performance check out the following links:
Mega-Catch™ Mosquito Traps should be used in conjunction with other sensible control measures designed to manage mosquito problems. Read More
