How CO2 Mosquito Traps Work

All of these newer mosquito traps utilize some form of attractant that lures the host-seeking female mosquitoes into a capture or killing device. In some cases, mosquitoes are captured by an impellor fan that draws them into a net where they are dried out.
Other trapping systems use sticky surfaces to which the mosquitoes adhere when they land. Still others utilize an electric grid to electrocute mosquitoes drawn into contact. As you can see there are many effective luring traps available to choose from for mosquito control.
