Mosquito Magnet® Executive Mosquito Trap
- Product Review (submitted on April 16, 2016):
This the my second MM. My first one (liberty plus) kept my yard mosquito free for ~10 years. Never a hiccup. In its 10th year it wouldnt start. Im going to send it for repairs but needed a box big enough to ship it in. So I bought an excutive model and am using the box it came in. Problem solved. It's been up and running for about a month now and its catching mosquitos. I live in NW New Jersey and biting insects are a big issue. Well, not for me because of my MM. I set mine up a bit on the early side. At first it only catches a few but you cannot look at it as "well its only a few". The first mosquitos are the hardy ones and early breeders so knocking them off is very important. Even if it were just two or three that first month- its the females that will breed and produce more early risers. Having two will make it so I don't have to move the one around. PROS- works EXACTLY as advertised, no pesticides that kill beneficial insects (spiders build webs all around this thing- you MUST clear them out of the suction horn!!), by the second or third month mosquitos are gone (I can go out any time without a shirt without worry), traps and kills mosquitos BUT it also traps biting gnats and those other small biting insects and even horse flies end up in the trap (not lots though, I assume because they are strong fliers) you know because it's working for two reasons- you don't get bit AND you see them dead in the bag. CONS- no big red white and blue sticker that says "proudly made in the USA". Really guys?? Its hard enough to find anything made here anymore so it would be really nice if you put one on AND sent one to me. SUGGESTIONS- bigger tires, maybe even air filled to make it easier to roll over yard and dirt. Bolt or pin all the pieces together (head, stem and tank). I talk this thing up every chance I get because people have to stop using poisons, they fix the problem short term but makes things so much worse for all of us in the long run by killing all the bugs and then the bad bugs repopulate so much faster than the good bugs.
