so far seems to be wonderful even though the skeeter population appears lower than usual, perhaps, because of colder nights than usual.
It's hard to believe the difference. Last season we were eaten alive whenever outside. Placed this in our backyard and have maybe had two to three bites for the entire family this season key is to start it just before the mosquito season. Highly recommend.

This thing really collects bugs! Gnats, flies, mosquitos - it traps them all. It makes our mountain home more liveable, and for your customer reps information, yes, we do have mosquitos above 11,000 feet and yes, the SkeeterVac does work at that altitude. However, the locals take on this machine is that it attracts millions and kills thousands. In other words, it will alleviate the problem, but won't eliminate it.
I've been catching up to a couple hundred mosquitoes daily. No trap bags to replace - nice bonus. It has a removable screened dish for a trap that I just vacuum out the mosquitoes with my shop vac I do that about every other day. The sticky paper has been catching lots of biting flies. NO ELECTRICAL CORD REQUIRED - HUGE BONUS! The device generates its own electricity from the propane powered engine.
Uses lots of propane - a full tank lasts at most 3 weeks. I guess since this device is made by Blue Rhino, who is also in business of selling propane, why would I expect this device to be fuel efficient?
Wheels are nice, but this device is still difficult to move around the yard. Design would benefit from using 4 tires instead of 2.
The device is easy to assemble and fairly easy to maintain.
Cost of attractant scent block and sticky paper seems expensive to maintain.
Overall, it's a nice device and I recommend it as it's effective in catching mosquitoes, but this mosquito trap still has areas in its design that could be improved for fuel efficiency, cost of maintenance and ease of transport.
Delivery was very fast. It was easy to assemble. Mosquitos are all over the sticky black and white wrap around which I had to replace 3 times in 4 weeks due to all the mosquitos it caught however, no mosquitos are going into the trap, even after calling customer service for help. All in all, it is working, just not the trap part.
Great service - product seems to be catching bugs!

We are very happy with our SkeeterVac.What i like is the fact that i do not have to have any electric to it. No cords laying in our yard. Plus it seems to be working great.i cleaned it for the first time and we think we had at least a thousand of them in the basket, besides all the dead flys and bees that get caught on the sticky paper.
My Mosquito Magnet would never run for more than a few weeks straight usually far less. The SkeeterVac has run with no problems and it's catching a lot of mosquitos it should be noted that it is catching bugs other than mosquitos too.
Great unit. Easy to use and maintain.
