shape and airflow in an effective design that captures and kills mosquitoes. Universities,
state monitoring programs, and researchers around the world have been using similar
traps for years. The Lentek MK12 Mosquito Trap uses this traditional trapping approach,
combined with the latest in research, to turn the female mosquitoes natural hunting
techniques toward seeking out the trap and facilitating capture.

HOW THE MOSQUITO TRAP WORKS:
Up to 40 ft away, a female mosquito senses the CO2 and moisture coming
from the unit's burner. This tells the mosquito that there is a "breathing" creature
around. It flies towards the source of CO2 and moisture. At a range of
around 15 ft, the female mosquito starts to sense temperature similar to that of
a living creature (thermal imaging). The unique design of the MK-12 has three different
MK12 Lentek Guardian Mosquito Trap Features:
- Static thermal imaging, where in the body of the trap, there is warmth at the top
surfaces of the "neck" similar to that of living beings. This temperature is constant
and generates consistent heat waves that attract the mosquitoes closer to trap.
- Spot thermal imaging: The black dome-like surface of the trap is warmed up at different
points to be similar to living being's temperatures. Live beings do not have a consistent
temperature across the body. The mosquitoes think that this variation of temperatures
is a live animal.
- Dynamic thermal imaging: The heaters inside the trap turn on and off constantly
to send a movement-like signal to the mosquito. This incites it's hunting instincts.
Once the mosquito senses this temperature variation at the black surface, it will
try to land on top of it because it "thinks" the warm spots are bloodstream veins
of a living creature. This top area of the Trap is covered by a vacuum airflow from
the internal fan. This pulls the mosquitoes into the trap in a swirl-flow motion
due to the unique design of the internal trap components. The vacuum airflow flows
into the Catch Receptacle, where the mosquitoes stay trapped until they dehydrate
Cover for Propane Tank: Mosquito Trap Propane Tank Cover is available separately

propane tank cover dresses up the tank, while helping to minimize the corrosion
and protect against weather damage.
