“The units constantly turned themselves off and were barely able to function for more than a few hours. It took constant resets to even get this ‘achieved’. Tech support was clueless as to how to help.” 28 March 2015″ Source
“I have owned the Commander for a full season and it has been a complete pain. I cannot keep it running. It regularly just shuts off without any error code or alerting. I have worked with support over and over again, including returning it for repair, but they have not been able to resolve anything.” 1 October 2015 Source
“I should mention that I live in the Santa Barbara foothills. Though the squeeter population is nothing like Florida et al it does have sufficient squeeters to keep my wife indoors at night. The Mosquito Magnet® had been partially successful but the research papers on the Mega-Catch Ultra caught my attention. The PRO 900 sucked me in, what with its amazing array of adjustments. I was especially attracted to the timer option which allows me to only run it for the times that I wish… early morning and dusk. And I loved the idea of using a CO2 cylinder rather than creating CO2 with a constant flame using propane.” Source
“I have a SkeeterVac SV5100 that is going into it’s second year of service as of spring 2011. The SkeeterVac has definitely helped to reduce the mosquito population, but it does not eliminate them all. I have found this to be an effective device to manage the population, especially when used in concert with other methods to reduce the mosquito population.” Read more
- Feedback from mosquito trap reviews which will contain both negative and positive comments; consumer reviews are subjective after all.
“I admit I was skeptical when I first purchased the Dynatrap. I am a city dweller, and we had a terrible mosquito issue in a passageway next to my home. I didn’t want to use a bug zapper for the noise issue and didn’t want to use the mosquito magnet for environmental reasons. Plugged the thing a day and a half ago and voila!- I’ve caught literally small piles of them. Very pleased with the results so far.” source
The Mosquito Magnet® Executive Trap. “It troubles me to think that something that burns fossil fuels (propane) can be considered a GREEN product. I’ve seen this listed on someone’s “green products” list!?!? I think they have it all wrong!” source
“I’m getting good results with the Alpha here in South Texas. I have it on my back patio and capture about 30-40 mosquitos every night. I run it from about 5pm to 7 am. It seems as if I have several different species.” source
