The Inzecto Mosquito Trap uses two modes of action to kill Aedes species mosquitoes and their larvae. The larvicide kills mosquito larvae when they hatch from eggs in the water inside of the trap. There is also an adulticide which kills adult mosquitoes when they contact the internal surface of the trap. The trap’s unique patented design provides an ideal environment for breeding mosquitoes laying their eggs. Multiple studies have shown that mosquitoes prefer to lay their eggs in Inzecto traps versus other breeding grounds, which reduces the amount of eggs mosquitoes lay in alternative water containers. The trap’s internal surface is coated with a patented slow release mix of larvicide and adulticide. More than 90% of adult female mosquitoes die upon contacting the trap’s internal surface. In some cases, mosquitoes may lay eggs before dying inside the trap. When that happens, all of the larvae from those eggs are killed by the pesticide in the water once the eggs hatch. To use, simply fill traps with water and place traps outdoors in a shady area protected from the wind. If using more than one trap, place traps at least 30 feet apart. Place on the ground on a flat surface or hang from a tree or other structure.

I recently started using these and they are great. It is important to remember that you still need to treat for mosquitoes on top of this and the traps will get most of the stragglers. There is no secret weapon to rid your property of every single mosquito considering they fly in but these traps are an excellent addition to minimize the population.
How would the effectiveness of it compare to traditional spraying? I live on a shady 1/3 acre lot. Have your customers had good luck?
The Inzecto Mosquito Trap will offers 90 day control and covers 3,000 sq ft. It is recommended to use 2 per 1/4 acre. Also, our mosquito control kits and the products within them will control any mosquito species that lands on a treated surface. Please take a few moments to review our treatment article here and detailed trap specifications here.
Per the label, the Inzecto Mosquito Trap lasts 90 days. You would need to replace with a new trap after that time.
