  • Mosquito Traps?

    We were looking at getting one of those propane-powered mosquito-trap things. Anyone here use them or have an opinion on them? It's so hard to tell from online research what's good and bad. For every glowing 5-star review, there's a 1-star rant.

    We only have about 1/2 acre of land, and we're not near any standing water, so it's not real bad. I don't get bit much at all, but the rest of the fam must have some sweet sweet blood, cause they chewed up pretty good.

    so uh... yeah, what?

        I have been to a couple of houses that use them and they seemed pretty effective. I discussed them with one owner and they said placement is everything. You can't place them close to where you will be hanging out. They need to be a certain distance away otherwise they will still find you. So if you have small yard they don't work and can even make things worse. Everything I have read says that they are most effective if there is a general source of the mosquitoes. One of the families actually had two because they where surrounded by woods.

        You don't need much standing water. A single tree can have several breading grounds due to water in nooks and cranys.
