Different mosquito species respond in different ways and there are so many variations in their behaviors and in the things that attract and repel them.  The Rapid Action Blue Octenol is designed to capture most common mosquitoes and midges.

11. How do I stop the insect residue building up to the point the fan stops?
Clean the fan carefully following the instructions in the operation manual. Leave it to dry. Tips! You can spray the inside fan housing and the tips of the fan blades with a coat of TEFLON based dry lubricant spray. This will reduce the insect residue build. Repeat the process each time you clean the fan.

12. Shall I use water in the collector?
Yes! Water will drown the mosquitoes and compact the catch so that the collector will hold more insects without clogging the airflow. The water will also give additional moist to the trap and water is something that always attract mosquitoes. Tips, put a teaspoon of sugar in the water. Mosquitoes needs the energy and always favor the sweets.
