We all appreciate the dangers of mosquitoes in Australia, however, now we have a product that can take an extra step to assist with the fight. Our newly introduced Mosquito Eater Mozzie Trap is exactly that. This trap has 4-way protection and that is why this trap is fastly becoming our most popular:
- A UF fluorescent bulb generates a warm light which attracts flying insects towards the mosquito trap.
- Our second advantage is our strongly coated surface that produces Tio2 titanium dioxide. This process produces small quantities of CO2, the same gas we exhale that attracts the female mosquito, the one that bites us.
- This is our only trap that users a water tray around the trap, this attracts mosquitoes for laying eggs.
- Finally our powerful, yet whisper-quiet vacuum fan that collects all the insects and retains them in the holding chamber, where they dehydrate and die.
