SkeeterVac CPSV5100 Mosquito Control
Effective outdoor pest control and Zika and West Nile aid.
The SV5100 is rated at over an acre coverage for the most effective mosquito and Zika Virus defense available. It uses the most advanced technologies in the industry to trap mosquitoes and other biting insects like a magnet. Insects are attracted by the Co2 and heat of the burning propane, the LED flashing lights, and the Octenol chemical attractant. Reducing the mosquito population will have an effect on the spread of the Zika Virus as well as West Nile Virus. Even if the Zika carrying mosquito is not captured, by removing a significant part of the mosquito the Zika virus carrier will be more vulnerable to natural predators and more noticeable to you as there are fewer mosquitoes to attack you. This is a simple and effective countermeasure in the fight against diseases and pests. 6 Powerful Attractants – Co2, Attractant Lure (Octenol), Moisture, Heat, Light and Visual Contrast.
We tested this device in the summertime in SW Florida. The device runs nearly silently day and night for several weeks on a single tank of propane. There is no electrical cord required to the unit as in some outdated competitor designs. We were shocked at the thousands of mosquitoes that were captured in the first few nights. They are drawn into the capture basket by the propane powered engine after being attracted by the combination of lures where they are trapped and die. After the first week, the nightly capture rate decreases and there were practically no mosquitoes on the property. That is amazing for South Florida. It should work even better as your location goes further north because the heat and moisture produced will be even more attractive to the mosquitoes. We highly recommend this product as well as the replacement attractants sold on our site.
