Koolatron's Bite Shield™ Guardian Pro Cordless Mosquito Trap helps protect your entire family from mosquitoes by attracting biting female mosquitoes to the unit and capturing them in either the Capture Cup or on the exterior Sticky Paper, where they dehydrate and die - preventing future generations of pests from those female mosquitoes. This trap incorporates multiple proven mosquito attractants to draw the annoying and harmful insects to the unit for capture - and away from where your loved ones gather. An easy-to-assemble, weatherproof unit is powerful enough to cover a full acre of land. The Guardian Pro requires the use of a 20-pound propane tank (not included), which will last 4 to 6 weeks with continuous 24 hour operation, and 4 "C" size Batteries (not included) to start the unit wherever you place it in your yard. Once your trap is in operation you can remove the batteries and store them safely indoors for future use.
The Guardian Pro Mosquito Trap utilizes the documented attractiveness of carbon dioxide (CO 2), moisture, body temperature (thermal imaging), color, shape and airflow in an effective design that captures and kills mosquitoes. Similar traps have been in use for years by universities, state monitoring programs and researchers around the world. The Guardian Pro uses this traditional trapping approach, combined with the latest in research, to turn the female mosquito's natural hunting techniques toward seeking out the trap. Additionally, an Octenol cartridge is included as an attractant "boost" to help further reduce the female mosquito population around your home. An exterior Sticky Tape is also included for use when larger biting flying insects are a problem. The Sticky Tape grabs these insects on contact.
To achieve the best results from your Guardian Pro Mosquito Trap, you must leave it in operation full-time during the mosquito season. The trap is not meant for occasional use, such as during an outdoor party. While it will begin attracting and catching mosquito's almost immediately, it will not immediately eliminate the problem as female mosquito's reproduce constantly throughout the spring and summer and their local population will be reduced over time as the trap continues to catch and kill female mosquitoess. Fewer females, fewer eggs, fewer mosquitoes!
Assembly has been designed for simplicity and no tools are required. The propane tank (not included) sits atop the base.
