NOsquito® Mosquito Trap Review
NOsquito® Mosquito Vacuum by Kaz, Inc. – www.stingervac.com
Nosquito® Mosquito Vacuum
The NOsquito® Mosquito Vacuum was released to the market in 2007.
It is worth noting that the manufacturer, Kaz, Inc. is most well known for the “Stinger” range of bug zappers which are sometimes called mosquito traps but are a completely different design to any of the mosquito traps discussed in this website.
The NOsquito® Mosquito Vacuum must be operated continuously (24/7) and uses CO2, heat and moisture (generated by propane combustion), along with a “NOsquito® by Stinger 2-in-1 power bait” (a combination of Octenol and lactic acid) to attract mosquitoes. Once attracted to the trap, there is an internal fan which sucks the mosquitoes into a catch tray where they dehydrate and die. There is a digital display on the trap which indicates when to refill the propane and bait. Kaz, Inc. claim to have a “reliable, patented clog free design” in relation to the propane system.
What They Say:
NOsquito Mosquito Vacuum
“Bought this device last year and immediately had to have the whole head mechanism replaced twice because the CO2 producing part would not stay lit. Luckily it was still under warranty so the company replaced it both times. They seemed to recognize that there was a problem with this particular model. This season the device quit again, but the company said that this time it was tough luck. I have noticed that Lowes has stopped carrying this unit as well. Save your money. The device will fail quickly. source
" The Mosquito Vacuum appears to be a solid unit and it is at a price that I am willing to try it. I plugged it in last night and it has already been running for approx 28 hours. The good news is that it captured well over 30 mosquitos by 12pm this afternoon. The bad news is that I decided to move it to a different location and when I did the power cord got detached. With in seconds 30 mosquitos flew right out of the machine. I find this to be a fairly significant issue especially since the power tends to go off quite a bit during the summer months here in FL..... I am going to test this unit for a couple of more weeks behore making a final decision but right now I am very skeptical. I will continue to update the review as I learn more. I am relatively new to this type of device but there certainly seems to be a lot of room for improvement." source
Another customer writes: “We purchased a unit this week (July 2010) and just got it set up and working. The instructions say that it takes several weeks to notice the difference in mosquito populations. After the first night there were aproximately 100 mosquitoes in the net. I worked in my garden this morning and it is the first time I had not been bothered by the critters. There are probably several kinds of mosquitoes, weather conditions change, etc., so variables can make a difference, however. I just hope we are as satisfied with the product two months from now as we are today”. source.
