Mosquito Trap Review

Koolatron Bite Shield Mosquito Trap - MK12-FE

Lentek Mosquito Trap GuardianThe largest and most powerful entry to Koolatron's (formerly Lentek) popular line of mosquito catchers, the MK12-FE Guardian trap protects a full acre without the use of harmful pesticides. Durable, weatherproof and easy to assemble, the Guardian has been scientifically designed for maximum effectiveness. One of its unique features is a patent-pending combo of thermal imaging techniques, which simulate a living, breathing creature - luring in hungry mosquitos to trap and kill them in the protected, easy-to-empty cup.

Don't confuse this with the Guardian MK11 mosquito trap that was introduced in 2003. Although similar in appearance, the MK12 is much more portable (being a full 50% lighter than the MK11) and boasts several functional and design improvements as well.

The manufacturer also offers a cordless version of this item - the MK-14.
