Living in rural Florida, mosquitos can cloud the air. I purchased this several years ago and have found it to be the best product I have found for trying to keep the population in check. There is no way to ever gain full control, even though the city sprays during the summer months, but you would be trapped inside in the summer without it. The only draw backs are that none of the local retailers carry the replacement traps and they are pricy and as often as I have to change them out, I find I have to budget for them. Still, it is much better with them than without so well worth keeping plenty on hand.

It is sticky, but easy to use.
These sticky sheets work great! I don't know much to say other than that they do exactly what they are supposed to the mosquitoes get stuck and don't ever fly away. They are a tight fit to secure around the SkeeterVac unit, but I don't really think that's a bad thing.
Work excellant..placement of the trap itself is important..mine is in the shade most of the day and on average need to change the refill every 5 days to a week or so..peak mosquito season.
Should of ordered more....ohh well .
Trap runs 24/7 from Mid may to Mid Sept...and well worth it..got my yard back...
Reviewer: D. Howard
Tac Traps in combination with the skeetervac work quite well at both capturing mosquitos and flies. They are easy to install and very durable. The biggest drawback is the price since at my location 5 units are operating and can use 10 tac traps per week 5 - 2 pack boxes.
I love it because I can see mosquito trap on it, and it's feel good. The only cons is filled up rapidely and it needs to be change.
Reviewer: Sharon Seguin
The Tac Trap work very well in holding the mosquitos with no escape possible. They have super adhesive qualities and bugs stick and die.
Amazing. If I didn't see the results I wouldn't believe it. I change the trap every 25 days or so. Completely filled with mosquito's, black flies, deer flies, horse flies, biting flies. Fantastic product. One of the selling points for this brand of mosquito control. Gotta see it to believe it.
I Bought the skeeter vac last year here in Canada This spring we had a huge out break of mosquitoes and none stores could not keep up with the demand. Therefore, I called Skeeter Vac directly. The product was here within 5 days and the trap is now working. IT does not kill all the mosquitoes but does a pretty good job of reducing the nuisance
good product but you have to remove the paper cover before installing it on the trap or the TacTrap will seperate because it will be too tight. Once the TacTrap is installed it's a good idea to tape it together as the connection tabs are not that good.
Easy to install and catches plenty of biting insects. Good value.
Great service ...
Works great! Traps all types of flying insects.
TacTraps work great - catches most anything that gets close.
The SkeeterVac works. I have one. My two sons each have one. And my best friend just bought one. I believe it's the best one on the market. And Northline Express has the best price.
Works great. Lasts a long time.
Reviewer: John Allen
Catches bugs by the millions. SkeeterVac is a winner.
Reviewer: beinda triche
works well just a little difficult to apply to unit
The tack traps work great! I don't know when to replace it though. I bought some extra because the last one became covered with flies in just a few days. It seemed that would make it harder for mosquitoes to get stuck. Next trap caught a lot of mosquitoes and other bugs. I changed it after just a couple weeks because it was so covered with mosquitoes. It is getting expensive so I need to know when it is no longer effective and needs to be changed.
Northern Maine provides us with plenty of mosquitoes, blackflies, and no-see-ums. The TacTrap looks like it is wearing a fur coat after about two weeks of use.
Reviewer: Nina Fabian
Holy Cow. These are amazing! I cannot tell you how quickly they fill up.
These TacTraps are amazing. If you have a SkeeterVac you should have a TacTrap on it. Mine have caught many biting gnats, deerflies, horseflies, mosquitos, wasps, hornets, and houseflies. It caught big horseflies that probably would have been able to walk out of the suction fan trap, but got stuck to the TacTrap. TacTraps greatly increased the efficiency of my 1 acre SkeeterVac.
I also use the octenol bait blocks, and I keep a UV bug zapper on during the day near my SkeeterVac for houseflies, maybe that helps.
I change the traps about every 3 weeks, when I change the propane tank. And when it rains, most of the bug parts wash off, only leaving the fly heads, and the trap remains sticky and active.
The 1-acre SkeeterVac is the 4th such device I have had, from 3 different manufacturers, and it is by far the best. It is self powered and doesn't need electricity like my previous units. I have no problem starting it up even it it runs out of propane, it starts up on 1st attempt. Even heavy rain does not turn it off. Last year I did not have a mosquito catcher for most of the summer, and got chewed up by biting insects almost every day. This year, I've been bitten far less and can open the back door without admitting multiple mosquitos/ deerflies. Was worth every penney.
I have minimal bug problems in my backyard since I purchased my SkeeterVac last summer
Reviewer: Ron Howell
The SkeeterVac mosquito trap is an excellent propane powered system. It traps mosquitos with a combination of an adhesive trap and a vacuum trap without requiring an external AC power supply. Refills for the adhesive trap are easy to get from multiple online sources.
Reviewer: Russ Rozea
This product is difficult to rate - since you run a Skeeter Vac for months at a time, it's impossible to tell how bad it may be without it. I'm not getting mosquito bites so far this year, so THUMBS UP!!!
Reviewer: Susan K. Fields
The SkeeterVac TacTrap Refills work great! We will order from Northline when we run out again.
Skeetervacs black & white trap lures the mosquitos to the machine very effectively on my MT river front property. It is covered quickly w/dead mosquitos! The best kind!
Reviewer: P Fannell
The TacTraps work well at capturing other fly pest as well as mosquitoes
Order arrived quickly and intact. Worked as advertised.
Works fine, will trap any inspect that comes in contact with paper
we love how many irritating insects we
can get stuck onto this paper! More on
the paper, less on us! Your service is
It is a shame that this unit does not come with four roller wheels to make relocation of this unit much easier. I would have thought that at this price, the manufacturer would have included four wheels.
This year's tactrap is better than ever. The paper is easier to remove. Don't get the sticky on your fingers though and read the instructions about making it into a cylinder before puttin it on the skeeter-vac so much easier!
Reviewer: Jack A. Brown
Very prompt and special service. I love the product.Thank myou.
Reviewer: WAYNE BRELLS
The refills were fairly priced and came quickly. No problems at all.
Would be excellent if it would fit on the machine. very hard to put it on the machine
Reviewer: quaite dodson
Northline, always does a good job in filling my orders. Their service is why I remain a customer
They catch everything that comes in contact. Horseflies, bees,mosquitoes, and ants are the best customers.
Abig improvement over the old machine.We call the TacTrap the nature channel.When they are full I mount them on a board a gift them to my flyfishing buddies.Adding fly tack tape dangling near has proven effective.
Reviewer: Gayle A Sirois
They work great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Reviewer: Joel and Janice Stein
A great product from a great company.
this product is great the horse flies stick to it
In 15 hours, the new refill was completely covered in Mosquitoes.
Reviewer: Robert Clements
These were exactly what I was looking for and work wonderfully.
I like it because it catches alot of mosquitos
What I don't like is it is really hard to peel the protective wrapper of of the
Fast service, well packaged. Great price. Will do buisness with you again. Thanks, Paul from Winnipeg, Canada.
Reviewer: Vincent Petronella
The SkeeterVac TacTrap Refills were delivered very quickly and are very effective, especially during this rainy year with its higher mosquito population.
Keep up the good work!
Reviewer: Gary Schaus
I have used just one replacement Skeeter Vac TacTrap refill to replace the original TacTrap that came with the SV3100. I had to change it out because after about 2 days of setting up the machine and placing it in my back yard, the Beech tree I set the SV3100 under went to seed and the TacTrap captured enough seeds to make it ineffective in catching mosquitoes or other flying critters. Replacing the Tac Trap is easy. Just place the TacTrap together and set it on the machine per the instructions. Make sure the paper covering the sticky paper is off the tab before you insert the tap in the slot to make the TacTrap into a circle. Carefully pull the cover paper off the sticky part of the trap. The trap does catch some mosquitoes but also catches flies , spiders and moths. It works well with the SV5100.
Reviewer: Ralph Dahlgren
I am very impressed with the operation of the tactraps.It not only traps skeeters but flies,gnats,moths,and all sorts of other flying insects that I have never seen before.The diamond pattern just seems to attract everything and anything in the area.
WAS treated VERY well. WE will BE BACK .
Reviewer: Scott Briggs CRS GRI
Fired up my skeeter vac April 1, 2009.
It has run 24/7 since except during tank change. My wife and I enjoy sitting in the cool of the evening in our private garden area and have not been pestered by any flying insects.
Reviewer: Alessandro J Veralli
Great product - Easy to use and works great
Reviewer: R Weber
Does what it was designed to do,a little difficult to install,until you figure out to put it together first then slip it over the unit.be careful not to force it,there is a taper to it,if it doesn't slip on,turn it over.
Skeeter Vac is a great option to control flying pests,i.e. mosquitos and black flies. Skeeter Vac's advantage is it creates a vacuum without the use of electricty or batteries. Only a AA for ignition.
Northline has great prices on the consumables.
You need 3 TacTrap packages to every 2 Baitblocks. This will last you at least 3 months.
Baitblocks last about 60 days, or 3 propane tank refills. TacTraps need to be replaced with each tank they will be full of insects.
Reviewer: Dennis Mancl
Item ordered hasn't been used yet this year, but previous year we had good results.
The TacTrap Refills are working great to eliminate the flying pest.
Very Good Product
Reviewer: Denise Brodeur
I've had my skeetervac for about 3 years now. I find it works pretty well. The refills are easy to replace. The service at Northline Express is always fast and easy. Highly recommended
Reviewer: Bruce Reinikainen
Last season the tac trap caught a lot of pests that didn't get pulled into our Skeeter Vac. This is a MUST for the Vac.
Reviewer: Jack A. Brown
Great Product. Great service
It worked well at trapping the mosquitoes. However, I have had to un-stick one very unhappy lizard and have thrown away a trap with a dead bird attached to it. Not to mention the dust and dog hair. If you manufactured a cover, with holes large enough for the mosquitoes and small enough to keep other things out, I would buy it. I might try covering it with some small mesh wire.
Reviewer: Kathy Gawryleski
A little hard to handle and put on at times, but they do work very well.
The Skeeter Vac products work great. I have used Mosquito Magnet traps and they work also but have reliability problems. My only negative comment is that the Skeeter Vac relies on the Tac Trap too much and these are not cheap.
love the skeetvac and go thru alot of tactraps....just wish they were easier to fasten around the unit!
I love the product but I would change one feature. The tab that connects the trap, it is too short and I always have to hold it together and then run duct tape down the side to hold it in place.
I love your website , the products and the great service.
Reviewer: Fred E Saalfeld
These come 2 to a pack and are a good value, the best price on the web here at Northline Express. We have the skeetervac SV5100 and they fit fine. They last about a month here in northern Wyoming.
Reviewer: P Theriault
We are very pleased with your service and plan to purchase items for our fireplace in te future.
Reviewer: Janet McKinnon
we have been useing the skeeter vac tapes for about 3 years and are very pleased with them we first bouht them in canada to use with our magnet this year we purchased from your co. and on 12 boxes we saved about 200.00 we will be purchasing more from you in the next year and in years to come thank you
Excellent Procduct. Will use again
Reviewer: jolayne simpson
I just love to see the TacTrap fill up with those bothersome bugs. Thank you for the continued good service.
Reviewer: Randy Clark
the refills were rolled in such away that the have a tendancy to tear when installing on the magnet itself.it happen with two and I was able to salvage one with duct tape.
Reviewer: Alex A.Karaczun
A must for skeeter vacs. I have to change mine every 1-2 weeks because they are just covered with insects, mostly flies. So stock-up. However, they are difficult to change without ripping joining slots - duct tape takes care of that though.
great price, quick delivery
Very good price and FAST shipping.
Definitly improves the performance of the Skeetervac mostly by trapping and killing biting pests that the vacuum isn't strong enough to pull in, like deerflys.
It is covered with bugs!
Reviewer: Mark Prevett
I think the Tac Trap Refills work effectively, however they are difficult to put on the SkeeterVac without ripping. I always have to use tape to make sure they will not come loose.
The product certainly does load up with bugs.
Works well. It does what it needs to do.
Reviewer: Darcy Haldeman
Excellent product. It will catch any flying insect that is attracted to people. I can use my yard again.
happy with the prompt service
This letter is regarding the Skeeter Vac we purchased earlier this year. We have been very pleased thus far with its performance. We have certainly noticed a big difference with our second daughter and me getting only 1-2 bites this summer. She and I seem to attract mosquitoes, but this summer has been a pleasant change. Friends and family who've been over to enjoy the pool this summer have certainly heard about the Skeeter Vac and our satisfaction with its performance.
