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.)

As usual, delivery and service from Hammacher Schlemmer was perfect. We use the mosquito trap on a large back porch in a heavily wooded area--lots of flying insects. It does the job! One of the reasons we purchased this one is because it has a natural attraction with the light and operates virtually silently. The unit is attractive and unobtrusive and we've recommended it to all our friends.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Ok, but not great
By Mosquito-bitten in Florida
This mosquito trap does trap mosquitos, but not nearly all of them since there are always new ones venturing in to the area. We have it on the back porch just outside our back door, and we still can't use our back porch because of the mosquitos. I'm not sure if I was looking for the impossible with this appliance, but was hoping for more than it delivers.

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.
Kill 'em the natural way
from Oconomowoc, WI
They could've made the bulb replacement easier but since it should last all season, just think about replacing it each spring.
It works but is flimsy construction
By Buggy in Port Washington
from Port Washington, NY
While the product works it is of flimsy construction and did not fit together as the instructions said it would.

Won't even use it,,,,
from Newton, NH
We had purchased both the 1 acre and 1/2 acre units because we had trees cut down in the lot next to our home. We used the larger unit first mainly because it is larger and felt that it would catch more Mosquitoes and put the smaller unit in the garage as back-up. The large unit turned out to be a great moth catcher either that or the mosquitoes up here are too smart...total waste of money.

1/2 Mosquito Trap
from NYC, NY
We use the product in our front stoop of a townhouse in NYC. Because of the water drain and the proximity to the street, it's often damp. Mosquitos tend to 'circle' our front door area. This Trap seems to attract about 60-70 percent, but most mornings I open our front door and still swat at 1 or 2 mosquitos. We don't leave the front door lights on during the night. I still think this product works, but I'm pretty sure NOTHING can get rid of all of these little buggers!
