Mosquito Traps

Mosquito traps are designed in such a way that it kills mosquitoes by attracting them. Mosquitoes are attracted to heat, carbon dioxide and certain body odour. Mosquito traps convert propane into CO2 and combine it with attractants such as heat and moisture. Once mosquitoes approach the trap, they are hastened away by a vacuum into a net. They die of dehydration within 24 hours.

Mosquito traps are beneficial if you have a garden and do not want insecticides to kill honey bees or other insects. Moreover, it offers a long-term solution by killing female mosquitoes (only female mosquitoes bite). Also, it is safer for children as there are no insecticides used.
