"These traps are not effective at killing biting insects (female mosquitoes and other insects), being much more effective at attracting and killing other harmless and beneficial insects. A study by the University of Delaware showed that over a period of 15 summer nights, 13,789 insects were killed among six devices. Of those insects killed, only 31 were biting insects. Mosquitoes are attracted to carbon dioxide and water vapor in the breath of mammals, not ultraviolet light. However, there are now bug zappers that emit carbon dioxide or use an external bait, such as octenol, to better attract biting insects into the light."
Bueno, bueno, bueno, no sed tan criticónes, esa foto era solo para consumo popular del foro. Los que me podéis pillar en un Munro seréis invitados a un trago de otro nivel...Great post but really, how can we take anyone seriously who drinks Farmhouse Grouse!
I saw a documentary that concluded that propane-powered (flame) that gives off Co2 as it burns was best at attracting mosquitoes.I've never used one but I have seen them in go outdoors and do know that mosquitos and midges are attracted to co2 as we breath out. The traps use a co2 creating insert to attract them to that instead of to you.
