The Solar Mosquito Zapper works by luring mosquitoes from the surrounding area (up to 75m2) with its ‘High White’ LED globe. Once the mosquitoes are drawn in by the light, the zapper kills the mosquito and drops it into the catcher underneath. The only maintenance is the catcher underneath just needs to be emptied when full. You will begin to notice the catcher will fill up quickly, but over time the frequency will lessen as the breeding cycle of the mosquito population is broken.
