It’s not too late in the season to have a CO2 trap – limited numbers of CO2 Upgrade Kits are still available for your Premier XC trap. During West Nile season (June-September), you’ll also receive a FREE Octenol Lure + FREE UPS ground shipping (continental USA only) from our online store.
After last year’s spike in West Nile virus cases, everyone is on high alert for a resurgence of the disease this season. Because most infections occur between June and September, hitting their peak in August, ongoing preventive measures are essential. So keep your traps running, slap on the bug spray and try and stay indoors after dusk when mosquitoes are most active.
Great Gadgets – Upgrade your PREMIER XC Trap to CO2
While our traps don’t need Carbon Dioxide (CO2) to attract mosquitoes, operation of Mega-Catch’s™ patented ‘Variable Quantity Slow CO2 Gas Release System’ will boost capture rates of targeted species including those West Nile Virus carrying mosquitoes. Mega-Catch™ ULTRA traps come CO2 ready, all that’s needed is a gas cylinder (sold separately).
If you have a Pro 900 PREMIER XC trap you can upgrade it to ULTRA specifications with our CO2 upgrade kit. The upgrade kit (sold separately) converts or ‘transforms’ the PREMIER XC to top-of-the-line ULTRA trap specifications, making it Carbon Dioxide (CO2) capable.
This enables the traps to replicate a key feature of human/animal respiration by releasing or ‘exhaling’ variable amounts of CO2 into the air plume. Use of this system is entirely optional and the trap can be run with or without the gas turned on. However, if you are battling a challenging mosquito problem we strongly recommend that you operate your trap with CO2 as this can increase the coverage area (up from 1 acre to 1.5 acres) and capture rates by as much as 300-400%.
Super sized and with a bite to match, Mega Mosquitoes known as gallinippers, are set to invade Florida this summer where major tropical events such as Tropical Storm Debby awakened the dormant eggs.
The female gallinipper (Psorophora ciliata) feeds day and night. It goes after people, will bite pets and even fish, out in the wild.
So prepare yourselves, this mosquito can pierce through several layers of clothing with a single bite. Due to their sheer size and robust physique, the gallinipper may be less susceptible to standard insect repellents. The best way to protect against these super-sized mosquitoes is to wear bug spray with DEET and cover up as best as possible.
They are primarily found in the southeastern United States, but their range extends as far north as Ontario and Quebec, and well into the mid-west. Psorophora ciliata has also been found as far south as Argentina. A study has shown that these notoriously aggressive mosquitoes are attracted by light. Mosquito Traps like Mega-Catch™, that incorporate light as an attractant method, may be more successful at controlling this particular species than traps that don’t.

Mark the American Mosquito Control Association’s (AMCA) National Mosquito Control Awareness Week (June 24-30) and fight the bite in your backyard with a few simple steps including the AMCA’s recommended three D’s:
- DRAIN – Empty out water containers at least once a week.
- DRESS – Wear long sleeves, long pants and light colored, loose fitting clothing.
- DEFEND – Apply an approved repellent such as DEET, Picaridin or Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus.
Mosquito repellents provide excellent personal protection, however they don’t actually kill mosquitoes.
Fortunately Mega-Catch™ traps do!
Referred to as the nuclear option of mosquito control by the Wall Street Journal, Mega-Catch™ ULTRA Mosquito Traps are the ultimate weapon against mosquitoes and other biting insects. So if you live in Florida, and more importantly Brevard County, and you visit any of the Brevard County Mosquito Control Department’s information booths during ‘mosquito week’ you will go in the draw to win one of our next generation Pro 900 ULTRA Mosquito Traps.
Special displays will be located outside Lowes and Home Depot department stores throughout the county with staff on hand to provide expert advice on how to mosquito proof your home this summer.

Known for its vicious biting habits and preference for large cities, the hardy Asian Tiger mosquito is back with a vengeance. Typically we rely on cold winters to control mosquito populations, unfortunately an unseasonably warm winter and early spring has brought these disease-carrying pests out in increasing numbers.
And as these urban mosquitoes readily spread, entomologists fear that Chikungunya virus, which is carried by this species, could become endemic to New York within a few years.
Laura Harrington of Cornell University estimates there is one Asian tiger mosquito for every five New Yorkers. Once that ratio increases to five insects per person, her model suggests that someone arriving in New York carrying the virus would have a 38% chance of passing it on to another person through mosquito bites. The disease could become entrenched in the city at that level of infection.
There is no vaccine or cure for this particular virus and prevention is the best and only protection for you and your family.
- Limit outdoor activity around dusk & dawn when mosquitoes are most active.
- Wear long pants and shirts and spray all over with insect repellents like DEET or PICARIDIN before leaving the house.
- Keep bushes trimmed and grass mown.
- Use screens and mosquito netting to provide skeeter-free zones in and around the home.
And more importantly – deprive mosquitoes of their favorite places like standing water, which can become potential mosquito nurseries. Females lay their eggs every three days in standing water. They don’t need much and they’re not particular where; an inch or two that has collected in a child’s toy, a flowerpot, or old tire. Stagnant pools, birdbaths and fountains are another mosquito favorite. Don’t forget to clear out the rain gutters too.
If you have a Mega-Catch™ trap then we definitely recommend using the Mega-Catch™ 3000 combo lure. Incorporating Octenol and Lactic acid the lure has been specifically formulated to attract the Asian tiger mosquito.
