Lentek MK05 Champion Mosquito Trap
Lentek MK05 Champion Mosquito Trap - - Lentek MK05 Champion Mosquito Trap utilizes the documented attractiveness of body temperature (thermal imaging), color (exclusive blue light system), octenol (includes 1 cartridge, which is good for approximately 60 days; extra octenol cartridges are available below), and airflow in an effective design to attract and capture mosquitoes and other blood-seeking flying
HOW IT WORKS: The Mosquito Trap operates by
capturing a steady number of egg laying females, thus gradually reducing the overall local mosquito population. To achieve the best results from your Mosquito Trap, you must leave
it in operation full time during the mosquito season. This product is not meant for
ocassional use, such as during an outdoor party.
A capture of only a few mosquitoes daily will have a substantial future impact. Lentek recommends operating the trap full time. In a few weeks you should notice a marked reduction in the mosquito population
around the area, as well as a reduced number of mosquitoes in the trap. Since
mosquito eggs can survive for several seasons, using your trap this season will also
reduce the number of eggs hatching next season.
Similar traps have been in use for years by universities, state monitoring programs, and researchers
around the world. The Lentek MK05 uses this traditional trapping approach, combined with the latest in ongoing
research, to turn the female mosquito’s natural hunting techniques toward seeking out the trap and facilitating
capture in a product that private homeowners can use.
