Lentek MK05 Champion Mosquito TrapLentek 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 insects.
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.
