Why buy a Lentek Mosquito Trap? Allergic reactions to mosquito saliva can leave red bumps and severe itching.  Mosquitoes can also transmit diseases and parasites including Eastern equine encephalitis, West Nile virus, malaria, yellow fever, dog heartworm, and dengue fever. Annually over one million people die from mosquito borne disease.

Help protect your family and pets from mosquitoes with the Lentek Mosquito Trap Guardian MK 12. Virtually maintenance free except for the propane tank and optional octenol attractant cartridges, the Lentek Mosquito trap is an effective propane and electric powered mosquito control product.
All six proven mosquito attractants lure annoying, harmful insects away from areas you choose to protect. Once inside this mosquito magnet, mosquitoes, flies and other bloodsucking insects quickly die. Easy-to-assemble and weatherproof, this mosquito magnet trap is a powerful mosquito control device that covers a full acre of land. The Guardian mosquito trap requires a 20-pound propane tank (not included) and 120V AC power. (Cannot be converted to 230V foreign use.) No harmful pesticides.

How The Propane and Carbon Monoxide Mosquito Trap Works:

A female mosquito senses the CO2 and moisture from the gas burner from up to 40 ft. away. The mosquito flies toward this "breathing" creature. At about 15 ft, the female mosquito senses temperature like a living creature (thermal imaging). The MK-12 mosquito magnet has three different thermal-imaging systems:
  1. Static thermal imaging. Constant warmth at the top surfaces of the trap's "neck" is like that of a living thing. Constant temperature and consistent heat waves attract mosquitoes closer.
  2. Spot thermal imaging: The mosquito trap's black dome-like surface warms at different points like a living body attracting the mosquito.
  3. Dynamic thermal imaging: The mosquito trap's internal heaters cycle on and off constantly imitating movement to the blood seeking mosquito. The mosquito tries to land on the black top looking for a meal and is drawn into the trap by a vacuum airflow from the internal fan. Once in the catch receptacle, the mosquitoes are trapped until they dehydrate and die.
Universities, state monitoring programs and researchers world-wide have used similar traps for years. The Lentek MK12 Mosquito Trap combines traditional mosquito trapping and the latest research findings about female mosquitoes’ natural hunting techniques. So this mosquito trap acts like a mosquito magnet, luring female mosquitoes and capturing them.

Constant operation of your Lentek MK12 Mosquito Trap Guardian throughout the mosquito season gives the best results. Each female mosquito lays 100- 300 eggs or up to 3000 total during its life. Eggs hatch to maturity in 4 to 7 days. Female mosquitoes are most active between 50 and 95 degrees F. Locate the mosquito trap 30 to 40 feet down wind from the area to be protected and near busy and leafy plants without strong odor. Note: Intermittent or occasional use of this mosquito trap significantly limits effectiveness. Constant operation is recommended.

Lentek Mosquito Trap is effective against mosquitoes, no see-ums and other blood-seeking insects.

Lentek Mosquito Traps is a leader in the Mosquito Control Industry offering both 1-acre coverage and easy assembly. The Lentek Mosquito Trap attracts mosquitoes like a magnet without harmful chemical sprays.

Note: Add non-toxic octenol cartridges for exponentially improving performance with no-see-ums.
