Product Highlights

  • Virtually maintenance free
  • No open flame, no nets to empty, no sticky panels to replace
  • Kills mosquitoes and biting flies
  • The PowerTrap performs without the use of insecticides, fogs or sprays. It uses propane gas and air to produce heat, moisture and carbon dioxide, the most irresistible attractants for mosquitoes and biting flies. It uses the latest LED motion lighting to increase the luring power, capture rate and effectiveness of the unit. A scientifically tested, slow release, Octenol Mosquito Attractant Cartridge is included in the package. Octenol, a by-product of respiration, acts synergistically with carbon dioxide to lure a wide range of mosquitoes and biting flies for optimum trap effectiveness. The unit features a computerized "set-and-forget" operation, which provides four individual time setting modes. An internal microprocessor controls all operations. It operates directly from any refillable 20 pound propane tank, (tank not included) and an included low-voltage power converter with 30 feet of low-voltage wire.

    Does What it is advertised to do.
    I have two of these machines and they do eliminate the biting insects. We live in South GA on the coast and we can sit out on our patio when othre folks cannot leave their house. Flowtron has delt with all of my probems under warranty to my satisfaction. the problem is after two years of 24/7 use the machines are pretty much done and have to be replaced. A longer life span would be good but they get the job done.

    Don't waste your money!
    This product broke after about 3 weeks..... at which point Flowtron (the makers) took it back to repair the broken part. After a couple of weeks they shipped us a repaired model. This then proceeded to break after 2 weeks! Then they wanted us to pay to ship it back to them to get it repaired again - the unit is very heavy and would have cost a fortune to ship. They were so unhelpful we contacted Sams club about getting a refund and they were great! Buyer beware is all I have to say! Once they have your $300 the maker's afterservice is appauling (even though they tell you to deal with them and not Sams club if you have any issues)!

    OK but not as good at the 1st one

    I bought the Power Trap Plus 1 Acre Mosquito trap 3 or 4 years ago. It came with a metal stand and cover for the propane tank. It lasted me 3 years in the hot Texas weather before failing. I placed it in a bushy niche at the back of the yard and it did well and I felt appreciable decrease in mosquitos. This new one is while, not as big as the other, and didn't even have "plus" in its name. It has a plastic stand that is about half a foot shorter than the metal stand of the original one. Currently its starter continously clicks as if it doesn't know it has ignited the propane. Not sure what is wrong with it and will likely have to take it back. So overall, smaller, likely still OK at reducing mosquitos, but not as good of quality as the original one.

    Don't waste your money!
