Best Thing Since Sliced Bread
We've had two of these. The first one stopped working. They sent replacement parts. Easy as pie. We have a lot of land but this keeps the mosquitos away all around the house where it's necessary... and farther. Great service. Great product. Will never live without it again.
I live in NJ and the little gnats make it so unbearable to be outside from spring through fall. I bought this in May after the bugs started getting annoying. It did take a few weeks before we felt a noticable difference. As long as I change out the propane (about every 3 weeks), the outdoors has been very pleasant. I see a lot of flies and bugs stuck to the sticky pad, but not so much in the filter. I gave it 4 stars since the price is expensive, but still worth it. And the quality seems good, but this is my 3rd unit. Mine seem to only last 2 years and then don't start up.
Awesome Awesome Awesome
My first one stopped working no parts available (old model). I purchased the 5100 both worked tremendous I live in Ohio I purchased them because the skeeter`s in our back yard were aweful not anymore. I highly recommend one of these for any one who has a skeeter problem.
Not One Mosquito
I have read these reviews and I am tryly dumbfounded. I have owned mine for 2 years now. First one had to be replaced becaue it would not cut on. I have yet to trap one mosquito after going through a dozen tanks of propane. I get eaten alive in my yard so I know they are there. I wont waste money this year!!!
We have been extremely satisfied with our SkeeterVac since it first arrived. We first learned of the SkeeterVac while looking for some kind of solution to the heavy mosquito problem we encountered following hurricane Irene, and the SkeeterVac has definitely impressed us so far. It assembled very easily and started up with no fuss after hooking up the propane tank.
One thing to note, we were not aware of the flashing light effects that occur at night, pet owners might want to know about this before setting the unit up as pets can be very easily attracted to the lights.

Works like a charm!
I bought the 2 of the SV3100 SkeeterVac about 2-3 months ago and am so pleased with it. It does the job of trapping all kinds of flying insects including mosquitoes. Prior to the SkeeterVac you could not even sit outside this summer I could enjoy our new deck. Not all the mosquito are gone but it was a lot better. We live in Mass, I have told everyone about this machine and what a great job it does. Like as stated the propaine last 4 about 3 weeks...
After a few unsuccessful spray applications on my 2 1/2 acre lot I purchased SkeeterVac as a last resort. Within a few days there were noticeably less biting insects. I set the vac about 30' away from my front patio right on the edge of the woods. Propane lasts about 20 days and I'm on my fourth glue trap in about a month. Glue traps are very easy to change. Two things to be aware of before purchasing: 1.the glue trap is very potent and you might wind up trapping small birds and non biting insects 2. it covers a radius so unless you can centrally locate the unit on your property it's not going to cover everything.

Absolutely a must purchase for anyone with a mosquito problem. We have lived in a rural area in the southeastern part of Wisconsin since 1985 and have a terrible mosquito problem. By July 1st every year we are rarely outside anymore. We can't sit out on our deck or front porch can't work in the flower and vegetable gardens or mow the lawn without being carried away by the critters. After much researching we decided on the SkeeterVac SV5100 and glad we did. We purchased on June 2, 2011 and it was delivered on June 4, 2011. WOW! Great customer service. I waited two months to write this review because I wanted to make sure the product works. Well..without any doubts I can say the product is excellent, it works beautifully, and would recommend to anyone that it is a must have if you want to enjoy your summers again. This was the first year that we could sit out on our front porch and watch fireworks on the 4th of July and enjoy them without getting eaten alive. This is the first year we can work in our gardens and yard, sit outside on the deck and porch without being terrorized by mosquitos. We are very happy to have are beautiful yard back and to be able to enjoy it again.

When we arrived here in Virginia, the mosquitos were so plentiful we couldn't even go outside. After having the SkeeterVac for just over a week, the difference was amazing, and now that we have had it for just over a month, there are very few mosquitos left. I would bet we have trapper over a million, and counting!!! Thanks for your great product.
