Galt News, August 7, 2009: Over the last century man has had a hard time trying to control mosquitos and the risk has recently escalated as mosquitos are known to carry the West Nile virus here in the United States. Mosquito control products and mosquito catchers have been on the market for quite a while and it seems that each year they fail at their main goal of trapping mosquitos or creating a mosquito barrier in your yard. There are mosquito misting systems, mosquito coils, plants, magnets, repellents, and electronic bug zappers. Most are ineffective at stopping mosquitos from harassing you while you try to enjoy an evening outside. Many people stick to the mosquito sprays such as Deep Woods Off to prevent mosquito bites and irritation. The only problem is that you need to keep reapplying the spray on your clothes and exposed skin each time you go back outside.
Technology is improving on mosquito traps, but very few have proven that they actually work and some have even been shown to be dangerous.
RECOMMENDED – The Mega Catch Ultra Mosquito Control Trap MCU-800 gets the highest praise from consumers and experts alike. A few owners mention the expensive price tag on this unit, but then they do agree that it does a good job. Considering you can get years of mosquito free yards with the Mega Catch™, the money is well spent and provides a relaxing atmosphere.
