How the Mosquito Mega-Catch Works

When most people think about a mosquito trap, they picture in their mind the Mosquito Magnet or Blue Rhino brand of traps. They are bulky machines that require propane to provide heat, spray can attractants to draw in insects, and either nets or sticky tape that must be changed out regularly or you end up letting more mosquitos free than you are able to trap. They each provide effective mosquito control until the attractant or propane run out. Then you have a machine that does not draw anything to it.Mega Catch Pro

Mega Catch Mosquito Trap Fragrance Strips

Fragrance Strips

The Mega Catch is different. It does not require propane at all. Instead, it uses an integrated light display and infrared heat to mimic a human’s body heat and breath. There are fragrance strips that should be used to further increase the traps effectiveness. Some of the Mega-Catch brand traps can use carbon dioxide, but whether you have CO2 or not, it should still be effective.

How Effective Is the Mega-Catch?

The Mega Catch uses a 12V power supply. The machine is designed to be inexpensive to run. It burns less power than a 40watt light bulb. Whether you use the CO2 or not, this trap does produce a scent that will appeal to biting insects, by making them think that the machine is a human being. The light attracts biting insects because of the random light pattern that it will produce. It mimics movement which can draw bugs to it if they rely on visual cues instead of scent or body heat. For insects that are drawn to heat, the infrared heat will make mosquitoes think it is a warm-blooded person or animal.

All traps are designed to mimic a human and appeal to the senses that biting insects have to rely on if they want to survive. The Mega Catch is designed to appeal to all senses more effectively without costing you a lot of money. It is the only trap available that uses a light system that flashes in both a visible and invisible spectrum, a feature which has proven it can be effective at drawing in a variety of bugs.

The only true drawback to this type of trap is that propane is able to draw mosquitoes and other insects from slightly further away. Whereas a propane trap can keep an area that is approximately 1 acre, bug-free, the Mega-Catch that does not use propane, will attract bugs in a smaller 3/4 acre or so.

To give you a better understanding of how the Mega Catch measures up against other mosquito traps available, you should take a look at the traps below. The Mega Catch reviews below are very popular choices for people who want to give them a try.

Review of Blue Rhino SkeeterVac

Each year people all across the world take on a battle against nature and the bugs that come out when spring starts warming up temperatures. It is a battle that many have fought and failed at, but then there are a few who make the wise choice and purchase a machine that mimics a human being and then traps mosquitoes as well as other flying, biting, annoying, insects. Of the two major name brands is the Blue Rhino and it promises to beat the competition hands down. Does it measure up? Read our review of the Blue Rhino SkeeterVac to find out.Blue Rhino SkeeterVac

Features of the Blue Rhino SkeeterVac

The SkeeterVac Blue Rhino promises 1+ acres of mosquito coverage with each of the mosquito vacuums. This means that it can eliminate mosquitoes as well as other insects, regardless of where it is located in your yard. All you have to do is turn the FineTune dial that is on it based on the type of insects that are most bothersome in your yard.

It has an easy to use electronic ignition that sparks the propane tank and allows it to emit CO2. The CO2 rating for this Mosquito Eliminator is 35,000 ccs/hour.SkeeterVac Review

It is simple to assemble when you first get it out of the box. No tools are required. The fully assembled machine measures 24.5 x 15 x 19in. It weighs 21 pounds so it is easy to move around the yard, especially if you move it using the two wheels that are also included.

This mosquito trap is completely wire-free. It is also quiet, child safe, and odorless. As an added bonus, it comes with a 1-year limited warranty.

SkeetVac Tac TrapTo get optimal results, you should place the SkeeterVac in a shady area around your home. It comes with a rain cover to protect it from the elements and from children who may be curious. Once secured in the area you want, you turn it on and the vacuum will start up. As insects are drawn to it and sucked inside, they become attached to sticky paper traps and they cannot get loose.

After approximately 4-6 weeks, you should notice that you are able to enjoy the great outdoors, even in the evening hours, without mosquitoes biting or gnats buzzing around you. You simply have to leave it on at all times and the bugs will make their way inside of the trap.

How Is SkeeterVac Unique?

You will notice a few differences in how this machine works as compared to others. One of the biggest differences is that the SkeeterVac uses sticky tape to keep bugs inside of the machine until they are dead. Other mosquito traps use a net inside of them, that if sustains damage, will stop catching insects. If this happens, you are simply wasting propane. It also promises to eliminate bugs within a full acre or more. Most traps only claim to be at best for a 1-acre yard. With other traps, you are encouraged to change out the net and attractant every 21 days or so. With the SkeeterVac, some people state that the sticky tape will work to catch bugs for about 8 weeks and the attractant will last around 5-6 weeks. As far as propane usage, all types of mosquito traps last about the same length of time. This trap is also unique because of the fact that it has a light on it to further encourage pesky insects to come close enough so that the fan can pull them inside.

Is It More Effective Than Mosquito Magnet?

When asked whether the Blue Rhino mosquito trap is more effective or less than the Mosquito Magnet, the opinions of those who have tried both, vary. According to several who have left a SkeeterVac Review, the fan does not always work properly and gauges would be an improvement. To deal with fan issues, most of the time it simply needs cleaning. Many say that it is better than the Mosquito Magnet. However, it is a little more expensive to run than the Mosquito Magnet and does require you to clean the fan, propane regulator, and other parts if you want to keep it working properly.

Review of Mosquito Magnet Executive

Summer is the time to enjoy the great outdoors and do activities like swimming, barbeques, and gardening. The downside is, mosquitos and other insects also enjoy the warmer weather months, which means most people end up sitting indoors rather than going out to enjoy all they dreamed of doing. The Mosquito Magnet promises to change the way you enjoy summer by eliminating mosquitoes in your yard and their newest model makes that even more likely. Are you ready to take back your summer fun?

Features of the Executive by Mosquito Magnet

What Features Are Unique To The Executive?

However this is one of the hardest mosquito traps to repair, meaning it usually needs to be shipped off for repair.

How Does It Compare to the Blue Rhino Skeeter Vac?

The Blue Rhino is another type of device that promises to eliminate mosquitoes before they can attack your family. Some people do prefer the Skeeter Vac to the Mosquito Magnet brand, but there are many Mosquito Magnet reviews that state that the Executive is a better machine. This is because most Skeeter Vacs are not as powerful as they claim to be. A device that says it will work to cover up to an acre requires more than one machine for an acre. Those who have the Executive, state that it is an effective way to eliminate mosquitoes. For most people, that should be proof enough that the Executive works better than the Skeeter Vac.

Review of Mosquito Magnet Patriot

If you want effective control at an affordable price, you are not alone. That is why Mosquito Magnet provides a budget friendly option, but the question most people want to be answered is whether saving money will be effective when it comes to eliminating mosquitos. To answer this question, you should read our review of the Mosquito Magnet Patriot.

Features of the Patriot Mosquito Magnet

Mosquito Magnet PatriotOne of the most impressive features for the Patriot is the available Mosquito Magnet Discount that allows you to have a quality mosquito trap at an affordable price. However, a lower price doesn’t mean less quality. This trap is still covered by the one-year warranty that other Mosquito Magnets offer.

The Patriot Mosquito Magnet emits CO2, heat, and moisture just like many other propane mosquito traps. The included net catches bugs, so that you never have to touch them or feel their painful, itchy bites again. It has a power supply cord to give it power, requires a propane tank, and has proven it is capable of handling mosquitos as well as other insects.

In comparison to other Mosquito Magnets, this is the basic model trap. Others may have features that this one does not. However, they are all going to work the same, just varying size of coverage. They each use an attractant to draw in more mosquitoes and they all have to be refilled at approximately the same time. The biggest reason people choose other options is because they are wireless. Many of them are battery operated so that you do not have to have a power cord running out to the mosquito trap from your home. They all have the same warranty except for the Commander, which provides you with a two-year warranty.

How Does It Compare to the Blue Rhino SkeeterVac?

A lot of people want to know about how Mosquito Magnets compare to Blue Rhino’s SkeeterVac. One huge difference is that the SkeeterVac is able to treat land that is 1 acre or more.

This means that you may have to have more than one Patriot if you have an area that is larger than an acre.

The SkeeterVac uses attractants that are designed to draw them to it. The same is true for the Mosquito Magnet brand of traps. However, there are many people who say that the SkeeterVac uses more money to keep it going. The attractant costs more and it is a more expensive machine.

Take into consideration the area it covers, the amount it will cost to purchase and supply it, as well as the overall reviews from other homeowners who are tired of dealing with mosquitos and other insects.
