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.

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.Read more ›
They're less than before that's for sure.
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.Read more ›
