The Indoor/Outdoor IntelliTrap Mosquito Trap is small, silent, and does not use CO2. Intellitrap is a good choice for patios or small yards and can be used indoors. It uses UV light, heat, color, size, and scent to attract mosquitoes, gnats and other biting insects. It attracts from a
range of up to 30 feet. Mosquitoes, gnats, and other biting insects are sucked into the solid plastic catch tray by a very quiet fan. They cannot escape. Note that it is not a zapper, so there are no annoying sounds. It is very small, portable, and easy to clean.
trap will work well for light to moderate mosquito activity both indoors and out. If you
have a lot of mosquitoes or a larger space, you should get one or more CO2 traps.
light, color, size and shape and optional indoor/outdoor liquid attractant.
OPERATION Simple on/off switch. It has a low voltage transformer
and 6 feet of cord that plugs into a regular 110v plug.
recommend that you turn it off in heavy rain.
This is one of the most important considerations. The IntelliTrap does not use CO2, so it does not draw from as wide an area. However, it should be in a shady area at least 15 feet from people. You can hang it on a tree or wall, or put it on a table, somewhere visible. Turn it on whenever mosquitoes are present. If you have a lot of mosquitoes, you should
get a trap that emits CO2.
you place it, monitor the catch. Mosquitoes are
more prevalent right after a rain, and then decrease in numbers until
the next rain, when another hatch of the same or different species may
occur. If you are not catching many, move the machine to another
location. The best gauge is your
perception of the number of bites you get after placing the machine.
It will not kill every mosquito, but it should make your outdoor life
much more tolerable.
also recommend that you add one of the repellent packages, either Terminix AllClear Lantern or Cognito or for a complete package. The traps kill the mosquitoes
and the repellents keep any that remain away from you. If you have
a large area, get traps that emit CO2.
