Very effective in catching mosquitoes and other small flying insects including:

  • moths
  • guava moth
  • codling moth
  • aphids
  • sand flies
  • midges
  • and more

The Mosquito Killer is cleverly designed to simulate human prey through some of the latest features to be found in mosquito traps. A built-in heat plate to simulate human heat, a lure that replicates human breath and sweat, a photocatalyst process that emits minute quantities of CO² and a UV light. All of the above are proven for increased performance in attracting pesky mosquitoes.

A powerful fan then creates a vacuum to suck the creatures into the extra-large catchment area where they dehydrate and die. The design is for effective use outside and the mosquito killer trap is waterproof. Research has shown that placing the mosquito trap in a shaded area increases the mosquito capture rate and the unit will cover up to 1500m² area.

The optional Cigarette lighter adaptor (12 volts) – makes the Terminator Mosquito Trap the ideal companion for all outdoor activities; even away from home. Camping / Boating and mosquitoes don’t have to be a problem anymore.

How does the Pestrol Terminator work to eliminate mozzies from your area?

The unit is designed to simulate human prey with its cleverly designed features like:

  • Carbon Dioxide—is the primary lure used and is produced through by the Photocatalyst reaction of UV rays from the light source radiating onto a panel coated with Titanium Dioxide (TiO2).
  • Heat—the human body gives off heat, and so too does the Terminator Mosquito Trap, mimicking human prey.
  • Ultraviolet Light—mosquitoes are drawn toward ultraviolet light.  The Terminator Mosquito Trap has an oscillating light to lure in mosquitoes.
  • Dark Colour—mosquitoes are naturally lured towards darker colours, and The Terminator Mosquito Trap has been designed to take advantage of this.
  • Fan—when mosquitoes are lured in and getting closer to the Terminator Mosquito Trap, they will be sucked into the catch container by the vacuum suction where they then dehydrate.
  • Attractant—is a chemical produced by the human body which attracts Mosquitoes.  The attractant (which is an optional extra) reproduces the human body’s odour and increases the catch rate up to 4 times.  The attractant will last about 3-4 weeks.

Things to notel07:

  • The Terminator is waterproof and designed to operate outdoors.  The unit is most effective in shaded areas.  The Terminator can lure insects within a 1500 m2 area.
  • While the Terminator Mosquito Trap will begin to catch mosquitoes immediately, if there is any mosquito activity in the vicinity it may take 6-8 weeks of use to reduce local populations to the point that breeding cycles are interrupted. You may reduce the use of The Terminator at this point but subsequent re-infestation may occur after significant rain.
  • If you are planning an outdoor event you need to operate the Terminator for an extended time before the event.  It is advised that you run the Terminator 24/7 during the height of your mosquito season to ensure you can enjoy your outdoor activities.

While the Mozzie Trap will begin to catch immediately if there is any mosquito activity in the vicinity, it may take 6-8 weeks of use to reduce local populations to the point that breeding cycles are interrupted.

    Have been using this product for 2 months now. We bought 2 for both sides of the home.

    Bet mosquito catcher I have used…The lure makes a huge difference to the catch.

    I love emptying the mosquitoes every day or so. Also great not to be bitten all the time when having a BBQ outside

    Bought it to catch mosquitoes. Not sure how effective it has been as each morning it is so full of months, one would not be able to detect mozzies. Hopefully reducing the guava moth population, but am I depriving the Ruru of it’s nocturnal repast?

    Do far is catching moths. The coming weeks will tell. The product seems well designed, it’s unobtrusive and can’t been heard from the house 40 feet away and the uv light is not so bright it’s a distraction.

    I (and close family) have bought four of these and they work, but only seem to last 2 or 3 years.

    I bought a Terminator a year back but then the bulb went just after a year and I bought a replacement bulb and followed all the instructions to replace this but it doesn’t light up. So in despair I bought another new Terminator, so now I have one going with the bulb and one without the bulb working… when these work they are really good so I like the product but putting in replacement units and having these work is another thing. I always recommend these to friends and show them the bags full of dead mosquito bodies they catch.

    Have set this up in our tunnel house hoping to catch any interlopers and have been getting small moths and other smaller insects. Also notice a number of moths stuck on the outside of the tunnel house near where the light shines through. It certainly does it job nicely

    These are fantastic, I get bags of Mosquitoes, but they have a working life so I keep buying new ones which can prove expensive. I would like better working longevity.
