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. The included wheeled cart with handle allows you to easily transport the SkeeterVac almost anywhere

Within 4 to 6 weeks of operating the SkeeterVac around the clock, you will notice a great insect reduction within more than 1 acre of your yard. The CPSV5100 covers more than the area of a football field-the largest coverage available anywhere. The Motion Lighting feature attracts a broader range of insects to increase your capture rate. The SkeeterVac measures 24.5 x 15 x 19 inches and weighs 21 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.

Don't wast your money.

I've used both the SkeeterVac and Lurex lures the past two weeks, (as I did last year), but still not a single mosquito trapped in the fan/screen drawer.
The mosquitoes were invading my yard, garage, car and my home.

I have owned the big skeetervac for about 3 seasons. The first tank it worked great. Then it ran out and I hooked up tank #2. It would not ignite. After reading about this problem and not finding a suitable solution, I decided to just take it apart and see what was inside.

At the gas line end point is the restrictor nozzle. It is a solid cylinder of aluminum about as big as a 35 mm file canister. Inside it is a plastic insert with a tiny outlet where the propane passes through and into the burn chamber. This outlet is about the width of 3 human hairs. I put a few drops of brake cleaner in the nozzle and blew it through with my mouth.

It took a little force, but a tiny chick of rust came out. Then it ran clean with a fine mist spray pattern.

I reassembled and the unit worked perfectly.

This has happened one every tank of fuel. The unit should come with a fuel gauge and a clear warning to NOT run the tank empty. There should also be a very accessible pre-filter. What were they thinking? They had to know this would happen.

I have had to do this procedure each time I ran a tank dry, which is twice per season in Florida.

The next issue was the insulation on the black wire from the spark electrode had partially melted and the spark was jumping out of the wire before reaching the burn chamber. They sypmtom was gas flowing good but no ignition, until a large enough volume of gas accumulated, then K A - B O O M !!! Nothing was damaged but it was scary, though not scary enough to keep me from doing it 3 more times.

So I replaced the spark electrode, covered the wire in some heat wrap, and the unit is perfect yet again.

Verified Purchase
Last year our backyard was overrun by mosquitoes and we vowed war this summer. We ordered this unit in February to be sure we were ready. It is late June and so far we have our backyard back again. We live on a larger lot surrounded by open prairie and woods. The mosquitoes were terrible.

The SkeeterVac CPSV5100 has worked well, but I have two complaints.

First, we go through a 20lb tank of propane about every three weeks. The sticky trap lasted about 8 weeks, and the lure lasted about 5 or 6 weeks. That gets fairly expensive to keep maintained, but for us it's worth it at this point.

My second complaint is that there is no indicator to tell if the lure bait is still working or not. Sure, you'll get more mosquitoes if your lure runs out, but it would be nice to have some indicator mechanism on it to tell in advance. The lures are expensive so you don't want to replace it before it's totally expended.

Bottom line? This unit works. It is fairly expensive to operate, and the durability of it remains to be seen, but so far it's holding up fine.

UPDATE: Okay, it's now the beginning of July -- the middle of summer, mosquito season -- and the "engine" on my unit just died. I replaced the propane tank and the fan never came back on. The propane fired up, the lights work, heat is produced, but the fan used to suck up mosquitoes quit working.

I called Blue Rhino and they are sending a new "engine" out under warranty, but I must now take the unit apart and fix it and send them back the old engine on my dime. Not a huge deal, but certainly an unwelcome hassle for a unit that has only been in actual operation since April (a little over 8 weeks), and in the prime of the mosquito season. I am now concerned about the overall reliability of this prodict.

I purchased back in 2010 the Large SkeeterVac (around $375). It has gone through a complete season. It has now been dragged out and started up again for the 2011 season. We live in the Tampa Bay area in Florida surrounded by Brooker Creek Preserve (a fancy name for a swamp). Mosquitoes and biting flies are nasty. We are on a 1 acre lot and needed something to help control them. The SkeeterVac did not start up this year without the help of a long lighter. You can hear the built in ignition lighting and the propane "pop" once ignited. However, it won't lite. I've read other reviews that blame this problem on the wire insulation breaking down and not sparking at the source. So a simple long lighter has resolved this problem. It has now been running for a week and is already 40% full from mosquitoes and flies. I am currently using the "FineTune" block to help attract the nasty little creatures and it seams to be working well.

To purchase the tacky paper and both types of bait (FineTune Lure and Lurex3), it will cost you around $60 through Amazon. I find the FineTune works better on regular mosquitoes and biting flies and I don't think I will replace the Lurex3 once I use the last one this season (designed to target the large Asian Tiger Mosquitoes)that we also get.

It cost me around $18 to fill a 20lbs propane tank. I'll go through 2-3 tanks a season. Therefore, It will cost me around $100 - $120 a year for supplies(propane, bait, & tac traps). Assuming that the system last me say ....3 full years, it will average out to about $125 a year for the actual system. I used 3 years based on the other reports that I've read.

So you're looking at close to a $245/year investment for everything. Not cheap but it does make a significant difference in our yard.

Hope this helps you.
