The flowtron arrived, assembled easily, switched on and has been killing tons of mosquitos and bugs since. It survived tropical storm bill and has been so far an excellent purchase. I'm just bought a second unit and am considering a third. We live on an acreage and I think I need that many units to do the job properly in Texas. Considering a replacement unit from mosquito magnet is $750 I can buy 5 of these things for the cost of one replacement.
Killing bugs should be relatively inexpensive and I think flowtron may have hit the jackpot here. Even if I throw it away after 12 months it will be more cost effective than mosquito magnet.
Just a couple days over the 30 day return period, the unit died...
Might be good to wrap the end of the cord around the pole to prevent hanging tension on the plug which might progress issues with the power supply.
EDIT: Updating my review... i'm about a month and some days in. the power supply was defective and i'm having a new one shipped out from FlowTron. I will update more down the line as time progresses... so far so good though!
Really impressed with the customer service!!!
I think it works much better at night than during the day, especially for anything attracted by the lights. Most bugs are in the basket, but the June bugs tend to just like to die before they even go through the fan. Seems like a semi-cheap and effective unit overall after researching for something that would KILL and not just repel mosquitos and something that has a heavy amount of good reviews (Thank you Amazon for the review system). It also seems very easy to fix if anything goes wrong (I'm an electrical engineer) as the unit is very simple in the electronics department. I'm not sure how this compares to the mosquito magnet or the Mega Catch (this seems to be the #1 Mosquito killer), but the price on this was much better and running it in the long run will be much cheaper as it will only require electricity, and the Octenol attractants to keep it going (instead of CO2 or Propane) and maybe a bulb once in a while. The only main flaw I see is that the wind would be able to knock it over, but I put a concrete brick on the base to prevent that.
I think it was a good purchase.
