SkeeterVac bait chips increase the effectiveness of your trap by releasing octenol continuously for 21 days. Octenol has been proven to lure mosquitoes, thus increasing the number mosquitoes you catch. Another benefit is that you can customize the amount of attractant based on your specific needs.

How Many SkeeterVac Bait Chips Should You Use?

For outdoor living areas with manmade pools, birdbaths or flowerpots, you don't need to use any. Near manmade ditches that often collect water due to poor drainage, use 1. For large scale storm water collection areas, however, increase the number to 2. If you have heavily wooded or grass covered areas with depressions in the ground (manmade or natural), 3 bait chips are necessary. Finally, areas that border bodies of water, whether freshwater or saltwater, require 4 chips.

One of SkeeterVac's benefits is that you can move it anywhere, easily. Positioning the unit on your property is a crucial part mosquito control. You should place it 20 to 30 feet away from where people gather and upwind from where mosquitoes live (standing water, gardens, trees, etc.). Since it doesn't require electricity to operate, there are no cords to trip over or clip with the lawnmower.

Within two weeks of continuous operation, you will reduce the number of mosquitoes. Remember that using SkeeterVac Bait Chips enhances the effectiveness of the trap. You must replace the octenol refills once every 21 days.
