This trap attracts and kills mosquitoes across a half-acre without harmful chemicals. The trap emits odorless carbon dioxide (the same gas people expel during respiration), light, and collects rain water to lure mosquitoes. Carbon dioxide is generated when ultraviolet rays from the internal fluorescent bulbs react with a titanium dioxide coating inside the trap. When the mosquitoes are drawn inside the device, an integrated fan traps the insects and sends them to a removable compartment where they die of dehydration. Unlike propane systems that require frequent refills or electrocution traps that release pathogens when an insect is killed, this superior model uses 3,000-hour rated UV bulbs and does not create biological agents. Sets up on the included stand. Plugs into AC with 10' cord. 44" H x 13 1/2" Diam. (15 lbs.)

I was disappointed.
from Hazen, AR
I'll admit that we have more mosquitoes than most places do but this item didn't work nearly as well as we expected it to. We set it up and had a hard time finding where to turn it on. Then, it just didn't kill the insects. They are still carrying us away in the garage!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Have not experienced any noticeable decrease in mosquitoes...no directions as to the best place to place it in your yard....directions sketchy...took forever to locate on/off switch...still trying to figure out how to clean it...says to turn basket clockwise, yet cannot get it to turn
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Thank you for your feedback. Switch the unit off and unplug before cleaning. Remove the cage by turning it clockwise. For major cleaning, remove the screws securing the fan to the light housing. Gently pull the fan away from the light housing. Using a soft brush, remove dirt.

My experience with this product is that the situation with mosquitoes in my yard is better but not fully solved. This morning after watering my garden I had two bites. In the past it would have been 6 or more. I wish it were none.

Definitely traps flying insects
By Mark the Patio Potato
from Austin, TX
I've had the trap for about one week now in my back patio and it definitely does trap all types of flying insects. The more insects it traps, the less there are to bother me. Nothing will get rid of all of the flying insects, but it sure does makes a difference. There will always be a stray lucky flying insect that will penetrate the defense and get you. It is an excellent moth catcher, so I don't have to worry about them flying around my patio lights at night which can also be bothersome. All in all, it is a great product that is well-made, attractive, and I will recommend it to everyone.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
½ Acre Natural Moswuito Trap - Hooray!!!
from Mirror, Alberta, Canada
Having this unit set out for only one night, the bottom of the screen is 1/8th full already.
Gets bugs good!
from Richardson, TX
Covers the patio area quite well - not quite sure about the 1/2 acre coverage. Like the fact that it is safe for pets and grandchildren - no pesticides is the best way to go.

By No more bites
from San Antonio, TX
Now I can enjoy my patio! I was constantly being eaten alive by mosquitoes and haven't had a bite since using this product.
Does not kill mosquitoes very well
from Dallas, Tx
Very easy to set up and useSeems to attract a lot of different insects, but does not do a very good job of killing mosquitoes, which was the only reason I bought the device.

What's not to like?
from Sacramento, CA
What I love about HS is their unconditional return policy so I bought this on a flyer. The next morning there were a gazzillion trapped critters including the target mosquitos but NO benificial insects, including bees and butterflysWe live in the Burbs of an area with a record of West Nile. this size is perfect for us, it doesn't look bad on the patio and mosquitos no longer think of our backyard ad Bill's Cafe
