How SkeeterVac Traps Exterminate
Female biting insects require blood to nourish their eggs. They get that blood from you, your
family, your pets and your friends. They track down hosts by sensing the
carbon dioxide (the primary cue), moisture and heat from breath, body odors
and color contrasts. SkeeterVac® mosquito exterminators create a combination of those cues. This tricks the insects into thinking the trap is
a host. Once the pests are attracted to the exterminator, they are captured
on the sticky trap or sucked into an enclosure by a powerful vacuum fan.
Once trapped, they quickly dehydrate and die. Propane gas from a standard
grill cylinder is burned in a sealed combustion chamber where it is
catalyzed into warm carbon dioxide and water. This precision mixture is
exhausted out into the air stream. A unique time-release FineTune® lure
at the top of the unit emits a scent that when combined with CO2 increases the attraction power for many species. Different species like
different levels of the scent. Only SkeeterVac® mosquito
exterminators allow you to vary the amount of attractant to match the
species in your backyard. Adjustment is made by simply turning a dial.
