Mosquito Trap Review:

Mega-Catch™ Pro900 Premier XC

Mega Catch Premier XC Pro900The Pro 900 Premier XC has all the features of the older Premier, the best selling MCP-800, along with an array of impressive new bells and whistles.

There are thousands of species of mosquitoes in the world, and each is a little different in their response to various sensory stimuli. The XC addresses this by offering not only multiple attractant methods, but by letting you customize and program them - to fine tune them in whatever manner best suits your specific mosquito problem. These stimuli are set to fluctuate in intensity to better simulate human activity and make the trap more enticing to mosquitoes. A high powered fan and your choice of a dry or wet capture method finishes the job!

The eco-friendly XC uses less power than a 40 watt bulb, and the 60 foot extension cord (provided) can be plugged into any outlet.

The Premier XC provides coverage of up to 1 acre. With Co2 upgrade capability and the programmable features, the XC is a reasonably-priced yet highly-effective weapon in the fight against moderate to heavy mosquito populations.

User feedback: Great feedback from owners of this trap. Mega-Catch also has a good reputation for their customer service. Better results reported by owners using it with the the optional CO2 kit, which can boost capture rates by up to 400%.
Comments: The Premier XC can be upgraded with an optional CO2 kit, which will greatly enhance the capture rate. If you have a serious mosquito colony and need the power of the CO2 attractant without the 1.5 acre coverage of the Ultra, buying the XC and the upgrade kit is the most cost-effective way to go.
