Anyone have a mosquito trap that actually works? I was going to buy a Dynotrap but there where many review saying in doesn’t work for mosquitoes and yet others say it does.
It looks like a wimpy version of the real thing, the Mosquito Magnet
From the reviews I have read, the Mosquito Magnet is nearly useless. Has anyone tried them with success? Just across the state line 2 miles from us the mosquito is their state bird, so if Mosquito Magnet worked, the makers could get rich in Minnesota.
Get a few Thermocells instead

We’ve dealt with very few mosquitoes this year, they’re usually a real nuisance. I left a few buckets and other containers in a few spots on the patio, edge of the woods, etc… Left them full of nasty water with mold growing in them, etc… Just what they love. Ever week or so I apply a bit of 9.1% Fipronil. “Taurus SC” brand bought off of Amazon a few years ago. I got it to spray around the house for general insects and it works great at getting rid of a yellowjacket or hornet’s nest. Anyway, experimenting a bit I stick a small twig the size of a toothpick down into the bottle maybe 3/4". A relatively small amount compared to the 4 or more gallons of water in the container. Water teeming with mosquito larvae. I simply stick the “toothpick” into the water and swish it around a bit. The larvae die and I’m assuming the adult mosquitoes which land and deposit new eggs into that water, die as well…
Probably any micro-encapsulated insecticide would provide similar results. I’ve just found that Fipronil works very well for it so that’s what I’ll stick with.
