Lightweight, compact and affordable, the Mega-Catch™ Alpha Mosquito Trap incorporates the latest technology and some of the features used in our top of the line ULTRA Mosquito Trap.
The Pro 900 Series Alpha which replaces the earlier model (MCA-600), has an improved heat profile, multi frequency UV LED's to increase capture rates as well as a new all weather fan design with stainless ball bearings to maximize performance and minimize maintenance.
Ideal for use in small yards, patios and gardens, the Mega-Catch™ Alpha Mosquito Trap can attract mosquitoes and other biting insects from as far away as 90 feet. Heat pulsing from a powerful central core heat system with digital pulse width modulation channel allows the Alpha Mosquito Trap to simulate subtle changes in human body temperature.
Designed to work without or without attractants, Mega-Catch™ fragrance strips have been specifically formulated to boost capture rates of nuisance mosquitoes as well as sand flies, black flies and biting midges (no-see-ums).

With or without Lures
However, the effectiveness of lures does vary greatly between different species and we recommend experimenting with and without lures. There may be 30 species in your yard, and only some of them will be a nuisance. Other attractant odors such as old sweaty smelly socks or even smelly Limburger cheese can also assist with increasing catch rates.
When placing your trap think shade, shelter from strong winds, damp areas, and vegetation. Place your trap in the shade between your house and the mosquito area, but no closer than 20-30 feet from where people tend to dwell outside.
If there is a gentle prevailing wind, then place the trap so that any added attractants, such as mosquito lures, will waft back into the mosquito area. If one location doesn't work, move the trap to the next one that you have identified. Note: in one study trap location made up to a 4 fold difference in catch rates, hence the importance of experimentation to find the best location. Even a move of 20 feet can make a big difference in some instances.
