Studies showed that it wasn’t light that attracted mosquitoes, it was carbon dioxide and humidity. This is why they are attracted by large crowds of people enjoying an outdoor barbecue or other event. With that much carbon dioxide being emitted by our breath and the humid summer air, it is almost a recipe match made in heaven for these little blood suckers.
As a consequence of this research, several machines have been invented that are much better at getting rid of mosquitoes, they’re called mosquito traps. Not too complicated of a name, but it is the perfect name for the product. Because this is how they work. The mosquitoes are lured to these traps because they emit carbon dioxide and water vapor. Some models also emit a pheromone that attracts the female mosquitoes which are the ones causing you all the bumps on your arms and legs each summer. As the mosquitoes get closer and closer to the source of the carbon dioxide and water, they eventually get sucked into the trap and die.
Each model of mosquito trap has a slightly different selling point. Some have a pheromone emitter, others a more powerful vacuum or carbon dioxide supply and range. You will find that some claim to be effective for within so many yards or hundreds of feet. You can expect to pay somewhere in the ball park of $200-400 USD for one of these units. If you do any amount of outdoor barbecuing or entertaining, the mosquito trap is well worth the investment. They also eliminate the need for harsh chemical sprays and toxic ingredients being sprayed on your body or inhaled in the air. Read more @ www.infobarrel.com
