Product Description

Don't let pesky mosquitoes and other insects ruin your backyard parties, picnics, and barbecues. The Blue Rhino SkeeterVac Mosquito Eliminator's FineTune baiting system transforms clean-burning propane into CO2 to attract mosquitoes into its trap. Turn the FineTune dial to set the attractant to match the insect species indigenous to your neighborhood. Once the bugs are attracted, the Vac&Tac trapping system utilizes a powerful vacuum and sticky paper traps to securely capture them. Just place the SkeeterVac Mosquito Eliminator in a shady spot, secure it in place using the included security spikes, and use the electronic ignition to ensure fast, easy, safe starts. Propane tank sold separately. Use the rain cover to protect the SkeeterVac from the elements and from children. Assembly and maintenance take only minutes, and no tools are necessary.

Within 4 to 6 weeks of operating the SkeeterVac around the clock, you will notice a great insect reduction within 1 acre of your yard. The Motion Lighting feature attracts a broader range of insects to increase your capture rate. The SkeeterVac measures 25 x 12 x 19 inches and weighs 19 pounds. It's quiet, odorless, child-safe, and presents no pesky cords to trip over or get in the way of the lawn mower. A 1-year limited warranty is included.

They catch a lot of bugs but most are not mosquitos.

Maintenance Costs: Expect to change propane every 15-20 days, bait every 60 days (If using Octenol) or every propane tank change (if using Lurex).

We live in the suburbs of Chicago and this does not appear to be effictive against our mosquitos.

Well engineered and easy to assemble. Am confident that there won't be rust or weathering issues.

Bought and am using it now with success. Items that might be useful to your purchase decision are propane (16 days to replacement ($19.60 per tank)), supposed to replace tak-trap (approx. $8) also, plus every 30 days the manual suggests replacing the octonal (fine tune) at $17 each, making the monthly price you will be bitten by is approx. $35 per month in maintenance. Its worth it to us, but with an 8 month season (Florida), it isn't cheap. We find it useful to purchase two tanks and get refills both at once to cut down on tank transfers.

Have tipped it over once (backed into it with the golf cart quite fast) and it broke the plastic retention and cover holder into about three pieces and with some super glue, repaired it and it still works.

You'll also need zappers to be rid of flies and other insects since it doesn't seem help with them.

You'll hear some fan type noise but negligible if over 20' from unit.

All together, satisfied with its operation.

I purchased this after looking around on amazon and reading some bad reviews of other models. I finally settled on this one after reading reviews for this model on other sites. We live on a lake so it's worse at night, and we have woods behind us. It definitely makes a difference compared to last year. We're outside all the time watching baseball/football and in the lake. I would recommend this model over other models. Comparable models in Home Depot/Lowes are $450+ for the 1 acre unit. The sticky paper replacements and the attractant can get expensive, but at least we can enjoy our yard/the lake now. You won't be disappointed.

I see a lot of reviews for any manner of mosquito traps that are based on a single season of use, or express disappointment after a couple of seasons. I thought it might be valuable to give some comments about my experiences after three seasons.

I live in New England on the border of some wetlands. Our summers are filled with mosquitoes. My expectation of the trap wasn't that it would eliminate these pests entirely but that it would significantly reduce the problem.

First, let me agree with most of the comments here - the SkeeterVac is very well constructed and I've had no problems with the device working. When I change gas tanks it starts first time. I've placed mine close to the wetlands and it survives the elements fine.

Second, let me also agree that the cost of running the SkeeterVac isn't cheap. I change my tank roughly every 20-25 days and change the sticky paper about three times a season. I go through one or two lures a season too. I run the thing from May thru to the beginning of September, so you're looking at about $150 a year, depending on what you pay for propane.

After three seasons my Vac is still working, with some caveats:

- The first season, the Vac was amazing. I was cleaning out a near-full trap of mosquitoes every other day, and the reduction in mosquitoes was very noticeable.
- The second season the effect wasn't nearly so pronounced and I wasn't catching nearly as many pests. This was in a year that was much dryer than normal, so we should have had fewer mosquitoes.
- The third season, I'm again getting a full trap, but still not as effective as year one
- The Vac hasn't eliminated the problem - in the evening we still see a lot of mosquitoes. But is is better.

I bought a SkeeterVac and I'm very happy with it. I live in Wy. surrounded by farm lands and irrigation canals and before I bought this unit I was unable to go outside in the morning or evening. It hasn't totally eliminated the mosquito problem but has made it so I can use my deck again. I had a problem with the motor restarting when I changed the propane bottle and the company was VERY helpful. Good product and good company.

Like a lot of people I HATE mosquitos. I moved from the city to the burbs about 5 years ago and simply couldn't enjoy being outside because of all the flying, blood sucking little bastards. I'd get half a dozen bites each time I tried heading out.

That first year I bought a "Mosquito Magnet". There are a bunch of different models & I bought the higher end "Liberty" model for somewhere around $500, hoping it'd be the best one. It was good, caught a lot of mosquitos but it was a bit finicky and sometimes wouldn't start up- I got a lot of error lights and getting it to work was hit or miss. A few months later I saw a cheaper model of Mosquito Magnet (the "Defender") for around $299 and decided I liked the idea of possibly killing twice as many mosquitos running two units (I really do hate them).

The "Defender" actually proved to be a much better unit. It was more reliable, was easier to clean and reset and actually caught more mosquitos than the Liberty. I really enjoyed going to the trap to find a whole set of dead skeeters.

The following year my "Liberty" wouldn't start up at all. They tell you to buy these air cartridges to clear out the lines, which I did to no avail. The unit would begin the cycle to start up, but then flash an error light and never get going. After numerous attempts I gave up on my poorly invested $500. Luckily my "Defender" was still going strong, but I still wanted to run two at a time as it really helps make a difference in keeping the yard free of the buggers. One day I'm in Target and come across a Blue Rhino "SkeeterVac" on sale for just $199 and had to go for it.

When I got it home I was both happy and skeptical about the fact it didn't need to be plugged into an electrical source like the Mosquito Magnet models.
