  • Doesn't seem to work

    posted by tweakerxp on 07/19/2008

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    + Built in LED

    + Seems to work in *some* situations (maybe it only affects certain species?)

    + Two different modes

    Cons:

    - Poor Build Quality. Cheap plastic scratches easily.

    - LED is RED so it's not the best for seeing in the dark.

    - Doesn't seem to work on most mosquitoes.

    - Noise is absolutely horrendous and can become unbearable.

    OtherThoughts:

    I have tested this device on several occasions. I was only able to make it have some effect at a park when there were lots of mosquitoes flying around. They seemed to back off a bit and didn't land on us when the unit was on. Other occasions, I've had mosquitoes come and land on us and even right up close to the repeller.

    Bottomline:

    Use some citronella patches instead. At least those don't make annoying noises. Although this device did appear to work once, it may have just been a coincidence.
