  • Loud but works

    posted by Dark00 on 09/03/2011

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - It works. After plugging it in, it caught its first mosquito in a couple of minutes
    - Works even with the angry-type asian tiger mosquitoes

    Cons:

    - Not the best build quality (I had to replaced one of the capacitors as its cover just fell off (same as in the pictures of customer Rumlin)
    - The fan is not very noisy at the beginning, but it's getting noisier every day as it sucks up the dust. Eventually I had to replace the fan as it became unbearingly loud. rrrrrRRrrrrRRRRrrrrrrRRRRR.

    OtherThoughts:

    - It definitely does attract mosquitoes, however if you're in the same room, they still prefer human flesh over the green mushroom :)
    - I have it running 24/7
    - Maybe adding some octenol tablets inside would attract them a lot more

    Bottomline:

    - The thing DOES work, however it's not a perfect replacement for "manual hunting" - you still need a racket/swatter
    - While the build quality is shady, it somehow does the job so I'd still recommend it if you have a lot of mosquitos
