Mosquitoes are known to transmit diseases such as Equine Encephalitis, West Nile Virus and others. When they bite an animal or bird infected with a disease, they go to lay eggs and come back to bite again. It is this second bite that transmits diseases. The Oak Stump Mosquito Trap attracts, catches and kills mosquitoes when they try to lay eggs, thus preventing that second "fatal" bite.
Our trap uses a mosquito egg pheromone which Mosquitoes use to mark special egg-laying places. This "locator" biochemical draws mosquitoes into the trap, but they cannot find their way out. They lay their eggs in the water. The eggs sink into the soap and water solution and do not hatch. Placing several of these traps in your yard will give you a pest free zone all season long. Made in the USA.
Traps are re-useable, non-toxic, and safe for the environment. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
The Oak Stump Farm Mosquito Lure contains 1 pheromone-based replacement lure, plus the recipe for a "swamp vegetation" bait. For use only in the Oak Stump Farm Mosquito Trap.
The bait lasts 5-6 weeks unless a large number of insects are trapped.
