This is a simple and very effective catcher. I happen to have the prior series (800) and this 900 series.

The user has the option of two types of operation.

- wet catch - using the included 1 litre bucket to catch
- dry catch - using the included dry "net"

These catchers work best (in New England) when using so-called "wet catch".

"Wet catch" just means using water / bucket to drown them vs sucking them in and pushing them into a dry net. With wet catch, refill and check the catch "bucket" every 3-4 days because the fan blowing down into it causes evaporation of the water.

I run mine (2) 24/7 all summer from early spring. Even though a control module allows for custom timer/programming, I just leave mine "on" always.

If you don't use Co2, you're getting the ones attracted to scent and the Premier (or Ultra) strobing lights. Up here in Mass, we have a catalog of 50 different species - a good number can be attracted without Co2.

Best non-octenal lures
I've had good luck with wet catch bucket; here's the mixture
- add about 4oz of "real" Pepsi
- add about 2 tablespoons imitation vanilla extract (the cheap stuff you can buy $3/pint at Costco). Yes, it works, you don't have to be exact.
- Fill the rest of the bucket (3/4 or more) with water and 3 drops of dish washing soap to break the surface tension of the water.

Don't fill it too high (leave 1/2 inch) because you'll have to insert it into the unit and sometimes the liquid can spill out while you're inserting the bucket.

We're killing lots of mosquitoes with this. Just wish we didn't have so many still. We have a large yard and move this around since it has a long extension to try and eliminate them in different areas of the yard.
They're less than before that's for sure.

The summer is over, and I think it did work, at least to some degree. The hardest part was keeping the "wet" bait going through the summer. (The unit comes with either a simple nylon net to catch the bugs, or a "bowl" which you put water, sugar, and a little soap into to attract the bugs.) It turned out to be too much of a bother to come out every other day to refill the wet bait. I'll either figure out a different system for that, or will just use the nylon net to catch the bugs.

Another silly thing is that the compartment that holds the net/wet bait closes and "locks" with a plastic key. That plastic key is perhaps one of the most stupid pieces of over-engineering I have seen. It is totally useless and actually gets in the way of doing maintenance on the net/wet bait.

I intend on updating this review over time. I've actually only just received the product earlier this week, and I can't comment on it's mosquito catching performance...yet!

So far this summer (it's now late June) in MN, the mosquitos have been prolific. I had previously used a mosquito catcher (powered by propane), but it kept breaking down and was finally unsalvagable last season. This brand seemed to have decent online reviews; but none of these mosquito catching products seem to have good objective evidence behind them. I chose this particular model based on price. The other models may be better, but I really can't afford to spend >$200 on a product that doesn't have proven performance.

When it arrived, I was surprised that it was relatively light and small. The pictures are deceiving. The unit is mostly heavy-duty plastic and is the size of, well, a breadbox. Setup was straightforward, and the instruction manual was exceptionally clear.

I have four of the big traps. Two are the fancy ones with CO2, the others not, spaced at equal intervals around the house (on 3.5 acres) up here in Maine, where we breed Moose-like mosquitoes. They all work, but the CO2 ones are way the best. I get maybe four or five bites all summer, and those in areas away from the raps. The CO2 tank refills are expensive, but easily found. Best is to "buy" the tank and just pay for refills, about $35 each time. (A "refill" is not actually a refill but a tank swap.) A tank may last all season. You will see that you get thousands of the little buggers at first, and then way fewer. That is because all the females die (only the females bite) and the generational thing stops. A rain may cause a little upsurge in catches for awhile. I find that the wet tanks last about a week and even then have a little sludge left in them. I haven't tried the dry bags. Refreshing the wet tanks is a chore, but can be done; just set a day and do it. I didn't find that the Octenal strips made any difference up here. I run mine 24/7, but remember that skeeters don't fly below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, if you want save electricity. I found the timers too complex, and with tiny buttons. Mega Catch will tell you how to bypass them. I did that and use much easier and simple house timers when I want partial use, such as in the shoulder seasons. I mean, do the skeeters know what day it is, and do they care? One thing, for best results you really should take the unit apart and clean it every year. That takes about 20 minutes per once you know what you are doing. A power screwdriver really is handy - lots of screws. If something breaks, all the parts are designed to be easily replaceable (plug and play) and are available from Mega Catch. Their customer support is great. Hope that helps.
