Trap Location

For the best performance from your Mega-Catch™ Mosquito Trap, first determine the source of the mosquito nuisance (Mosquitoes breed in wet areas like streams, marshland, wooded areas and gardens). Then use these rules to site the Trap:

  • Rule 1: Place the Trap between the mosquito source and areas of human activity.

  • Rule 2: Place the Trap as far away from people (20-30 ft) and as close to the mosquito source as possible. (Attract them to the Trap and not to you)
  • Rule 3: Place the Trap upwind of the mosquito source but only if you can comply with Rule 1. (Mosquitoes sometimes use the wind to navigate)
  • Rule 4: Place the Trap in a predominantly shaded area. (Most mosquitoes avoid direct sunlight)
  • Rule 5: Place the Trap in a location protected from rain and strong wind. (Mosquitoes don’t fly in strong winds)
  • Rule 6: If severe weather conditions are predicted then store the Trap out of the weather.
  • NB: Mega-Catch™ ULTRA, PREMIER XC and PREMIER Traps should be hung or suspended so that the Trap is approximately 3 feet (1 meter) above ground level. The ALPHA Trap can either sit on a flat surface or be suspended so that it is approximately 2 to 3 feet (.75 - 1 meter) above floor or ground level.
