Mosquito Magnet® Patriot Plus Mosquito Trap
- Product Review (submitted on July 8, 2016):
I live in South Florida and my front and back yards have lots of mosquitoes, especially during the summer. Not unusual for this part of the country! I spend a lot of time in my yard and the mosquitoes have been mostly tolerable until this year. For some reason there seem to be lots more mosquitoes around this summer, and I figured I had to do something about it. I invested in a Mosquito Magnet Patriot Plus which I installed one week ago. I also purchased the Lurex lures since that is what was recommended for this part of the country. I have been skeptical about all mosquito traps, but this trap really works in my yard. I placed it at the side of my house hoping to attract mosquitoes from the front and back yards. After one night I had a small pile of mosquitoes in the trap and now after one week I see several hundred dead mosquitoes in the trap. There are still some around the yard but I can really notice the difference in the populations in the front and back yards. So for now I am giving the trap a thumbs up, and I think the investment has been a good one for me. I do not like to use chemicals or traps that zap all insects, so this trap has been ideal for me. One thing I have noticed is that I see mosquitoes hovering around the lure but the fan is not able to suck them in until they get very close to the vent. Maybe a stronger fan may help trap the mosquitoes more effectively.
