FAQ.

  • Yes, as it kills mosquitoes naturally and as long as the unit is installed securely and correctly as per the manual. The trap is powered from a safe 12 volt waterproof transformer and draws less than .05 of an amp. The modulator that creates the pulsing of the gas is honey-bases and not poisonous. There is no ignition or explosion point as the trap uses CO2 gas – the same gas used to carbonate soft drinks.

  • It depends on the size of the bottle – the trap uses less than 3 kg (6.5 lbs) of CO2 per month if using the factory default setting on the provided hose. A commercial regulator is not required because your Mosquito Slayer uses a self-regulating, patented pulsing mechanism. A 9 kg (20 lb) bottle is recommended for approximately 4 months of usage.

  • A 250 mililiters (8 oz) lure, if used as per manufacturer’s instructions, will last about a month. Too much Lactic Lure in the tray will actually lower your catch rate, as female mosquitoes can sense the amount of lactic acid that a warm blooded creature emits.

  • The Mosquito Slayer is ideal for the use at home, as it can be easily mounted by two screws onto a fence or wall. The trap easily slides on to the screws and is secure. The trap can also be placed on a table or trolley.

  • The trap can be moved around easily and mounted in different locations; however it is suggested not to move the trap.

  • The Mosquito Slayer trap is designed to be used outdoors. Even during when it is raining. It has a 240V or 110V to 120 V transformers that supplies 12 volt power via waterproof connectors and cables. The patented technology is used outdoors in 75 countries.

  • For maximum efficiency, the trap is so exceptionally designed to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from approximately one month before mosquito season until one month after the season ends. In tropical areas with year round mosquitoes, the trap should run 24/7/365 so as not to permit the breeding cycle to start again once interrupted. Operating costs vary depending on the model of trap and the cost of consumables in your region. Generally, a CO2 gas system will cost roughly $50/month, while a non-gas unit will run approximately $24/month. These estimates include CO2 gas, bottle rental and consumables. On the CO2 model, the gas can be disconnected in the off/low season. The trap will still be effective, while reducing operating costs.

  • No. Only the females bite, as they need blood to provide protein for their eggs. Males are nectar feeders and do not bite.

  • The trap is designed to catch female Mosquitoes and Midges using the 10 Points as explained in how it works. It mainly attracts the female as she is the one that passes disease and kills mosquitoes naturally by drowning them. Tests conclusively demonstrate that the Mosquito Slayer catches 83%-98% of females, interrupting the breeding cycle over 4 to12 weeks 2 breeding cycles . This reduces the larvae pool for all mosquitoes – male and female – in an area up to 300 meters around the trap helping to protect your living or working area. Depending on the type of mosquito – a female can lay anywhere from 600 to 6000 larvae in a season, so for every female caught there is a reduction in the amount of laid eggs, thus reducing breeding quickly and effectively.

  • The male is a nectar feeder and his life span is about 6 weeks. His sole purpose is to mate. Males mate during flight with multiple female partners. In a larvae pool with less than 10% females, mating is significantly reduced and the male becomes a part of the food chain for other insects and spiders.
