1.0 out of 5 stars Not a well thought out design at all, September 23, 2008
This review is from: Mega Catch Alpha Indoor and Outdoor Mosquito Control Trap
I was hopeful for a non-chemical mosquito trap. And, with the success of this companies other products, I thought they might be onto something. Nope. Mosquitoes still completely control my back yard. All his thing seems to catch is a few moths and other random bugs. Ok.. there were some mosquitoes in there, but not many at all. But, the worst thing about this trap, is not it's lack of bug killing.. it's the lack of foresight by the designers. At some point, a large moth got caught in the fan blades and stalled it out. Who knows just how long the fan was stuck, but it burned out. After I cleaned out the moth and other bits, the fan refused to go. Ok.. no problem I though. I'm pretty handy with fixing things, and replacing a simple 80mm fan should be a snap right? WRONG!! There is NO way to remove the fan without destroying the whole unit. The bolts that hold the fan in place are run from the top down and then covered with non-removable electronic parts. Are you kidding me!! How could you not expect the fan to one day need replacing, and design it so it CAN be easily replaced!!!! Even if this thing managed to catch 2/3s of the mosquitoes in my yard, this fan fiasco is a show stopper.
