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.

So, this season I had no unit working and we could not be outside at all. Upon doing some more research I decided to go for the Skeetervac SV5100. This unit seems to combine the technologies of both the other units ( Lights, Propane > CO2, Octonol PLUS this tacky fly paper type wrap that causes some of the bugs to stick to it for added catching ability ) AND its cordless!. I ordered the unit next day delivery via my Prime account and it was on my doorstep the next afternoon. Set up was very easy and took all of about 10 minutes. I hooked up a fresh propane tank and followed the start up instructions. I will note that they say you will know the unit has started by hearing a popping noise as the "engine" starts up. I did not hear this noise and was not sure if the unit was actually running properly at first, but went over to check it about 20 mins later and the guage showed green as they said it would and I could hear the fan running. This was on the evening of June 27th. Blue Rhino says you need to give it 4-6 weeks to see it really start to work. 1 week later I went over to the unit to check out the progress. Mosquitos were swarming all around the unit and the tack paper was about 85% covered with bugs. I then pulled out the catch tray and was AMAZED!! It was chock full to the brim with mosquitos. I mean I dumped it out and it was literally a solid "brick" of dead mosquitos!
It is now July 10th, just about 2 weeks since I started the unit and 1 week since emptying the trap and replacing the tack paper. AGAIN, Holy S*%*! Just as many skeeters on the tack strip, possibly more, and the trap tray was again, completely solid full with mosquitos! I will try to upload some photos of my week 1 and week 2 results.
Bottom line....this machine WORKS!! The best of the 3 technologies I have tried and I am thoroughly pleased with the product and results. We have been spending a lot of time in the yard lately and sure, there are a few pesky blood suckers around, but total day/night difference from before. We got our yard back! Thanks Blue Rhino!
PS: I ordered an extra Octonol attractant cartridge and a replacement set of Tack strips with the unit. I will need to order more tack strips already as I just put my third and last one on today - although thats a good thing because it means it is filling up with dead mosquitos. Definitely order at least one replacement pack if you buy the unit.
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.
This unit worked fairly well through quite a few tanks of propane and lure/sticky-ring during the 2011 pool season here in northern VA. What it trapped was only on the sticky ring. Never any mosquitoes in the fan/screen trap.
Rolled it out of the open-air covered pool shed (where it spent the winter) last week for the start of the 2012 pool & mosquito season. Installed a full propane tank, SkeeterVac lure, and a fresh sticky ring,... and it was off and running. (Luckily, still, I've not experienced the supply line clogging others have described). Lots of mosquitoes to be trapped already because of our unusually wet early summer. 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. Lots of biting flies and a few mosquitoes on the sticky ring, though, and the mosquitoes have left notes how much they've enjoyed the night time color light show!
Unfortunately, at the beginning of this third season, I've experienced the dreaded clogged supply line others have described. I replaced the A-battery in the igniter, connected a fresh/full tank of propane, pushed the feed button, waited a few minutes for the propane to get to the igniter chamber, pushed the ignition button (hearing the anticipated clicking/ignition sound of a new/replaced battery), but never got the familiar "pop!" as the propane lit. Not good. Turned off the propane at the tank, then pulled off the feed hose at the engine. Saw the brass filter was clogged shut, looking like a burnt piece of toast found in the bottom tray of a toaster. No way to clean it, so have to order a replacement from Blue Rhino. With the brass filter out, I could hear propane coming through the hose when I slowly opened the tank's valve, so it seems everything upstream is okay. Hopefully, in another week or so I'll have the replacement brass filter, and we'll be good to go.
Installed the replacement brass screen/filter, and all's well. Lit with no problem.
As always, your mileage may vary. Cheers!
