Easily the best non-propane unit on the market, the Mega-Catch is virtually maintenance free: just plug it in and turn it on. The trap uses a strip of octenol (to generate a scent that resembles breath), a UV bulb, and flashing LEDs (oscillating frequencies determined to coincide with spectral sensitivities of many mosquitoes). When mosquitoes get close to the trap, the patented airflow system that disperses the attractant sucks the insects inside, where they are collected in a mesh catch bag or a liquid catch pan that is easy and safe to empty.In a USDA suburban test, our trap captured up to 1,200 mosquitoes in a single night and diminished mosquito populations over an entire acre. The LCD can be programmed so the trap operates around the clock or only during peak hours such as mornings and evenings.Energy efficient Mega-Catch uses AC power (60' cord with weatherproof connectors included). A cloth skirt (included) wraps around the trap for proper octenol dispersion and optimal suction. Octenol needs to be replaced after three weeks of use (more available below). Catch bag and liquid catch container (you can use either) are kept behind a lockable door for safety. Comes with a stand, or can be hung from a tree (optimal height is around 3' from ground). Durable all-weather plastic unit comes fully assembled. 16" H x 10 1/2" W x 12" L. (10 lbs.)
