Scientific research over the past 50 years has shown that female mosquitoes find their prey using a combination of sensory cues including light, shape, color, heat, vibration, sweat and other by-products of human activity.

Suitable for residential and commercial use, Mega-Catch™ traps produce a vast array of Mosquito Attracting Stimuli, and (model dependent) can attract mosquitoes and other biting insects from as far away as 150 feet.

Patience and experimentation are the keys to getting the best out of your mosquito trap and we recommend 6-8 weeks of continuous use to reduce the mosquito population to the point that the breeding cycle is interrupted.

USDA research entomologist Dr Dan Kline, who regularly tests and conducts studies on mosquito traps, cites operator error as a major contributor to impaired trap performance. "It's important that people read and follow the owner's manual." says Kline. "Placement is a big issue - you need to keep the trap out of the immediate area where people gather, and try to put it between the people and the source of the mosquitoes."
