Rated 3 out of 5 by from OMG! What a terrible experience! We like the product. It was easy to set up and operate.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Same Problem I've had the same problem as other reviewers: it worked very well for the first year, but I can't get it to start for the second year

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Support Like other reviewers, this machine worked wonderfully for me the first year. Then I couldn't get it to fire up at the beginning of the second season. I have tried to contact the manufacturer, who said that I could send the machine to their facility in Massachusetts for repair on my own dime. For a $500 product, that is simply unacceptable. Don't buy this, or any other Flowtron product that may require repair at some point in it's lifespan.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great, then not so great, then nothing This product worked great the first season but then half way through the second just stopped working altogether. Tried all the troubleshooting advice and after reading other reviews I did'nt even attempt to contact the company. Plus they don't have a toll free number. I would not recommend buying this product. Too expensive for too short a lifespan.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't work as well as hoped We have had this mosquito trap operating for 2 weeks and have captured maybe 200-300 mosquitos, during this time we were being constantly bitten whenever we were outside. I moved it twice as per the instructions and it didn't appear to improve the capture rate. I picked up a $40 light zapper a few days ago and the deck was covered with hundreds of mosquitos. Product is well build, however, for the price. cost to operate and effectiveness I wouldn't recommend it. I hope others have better luck with this trap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great !! Purchased this product recently, it works great. Within 3 days there were hundreds if not thousands of mosquitos and black flies in the basket. The only downfall I can see with this product is the cost of the replacement octenal pads.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless piece of equipment I bought this product a few weeks ago and set it up as per instructions. I did notice that the LED lights did not light up and the fan didn't turn but expected that it would work after a short time (the fan has to work to suck in the mosquitoes). The next morning, no mosquitoes, no lights and no fan. Troubleshot as per instructions, it still didn't work. Tried all four settings, it still didn't work. Phoned the company who said it was probably a faulty circuit board. They sent a new circuit board that I installed. It still didn't work. After two weeks of this I returned it to the Home Depot for a refund. Home Depot was helpful and courteous, as was the service department at Flowtron. Still and all, after you've shelled out $400 (after tax) you pretty well expect a product will work right out of the box. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

How long does 1 tank of propane last

Asked by: Chip
One 20 pound tank lasts from May first to September 30. With 24/7 setting in May for Maine Black Flied and then 4hr+3hr setting for rest of time. It's the octenol lure cartridges you need to replace. Every 2 weeks in May and then monthly. I've used two of the MT275s for over 15yrs. Worth having Flowtron repair them, too, when they crap out. I save original box for powerhead repair returns.

What are the maintenance/operating costs of this unit?

Asked by: Anonymous
If you run the unit 24/7 you will have to replace the propaane about every 3 weeks, as well as the octenal pad every 4-6 weeks.
