Mosquito Control


Hello all!! I was curious if anyone out there has used a propane based mosquito control unit. I was looking at the SkeeterVac SV5000 and wanted to see what kind of results people were getting. Thanks in advance for your time!!

Sorry not info on the subject of Mosquitos. Unless they are twin engine plywood ROFLOL
I am in Northwest Jersey. Easy to find:
40 mins nw of KMMU, 20 mins South of K12N. :}:}
Since u r in a Herky bird means you are military, Thanks for what you are doing really. My oldest son just retired from Navy as Chief, 24 yrs active. Middle Son Ex Marine, son in law retired Navy Chief I am USAF. :}
Town is Netcong, look on sectional find Lake Hopatcong which you probably already know, if inbound from MMU look to southwest side of Lake and you can find Netcong, Stanhope.
12N is a great airport :}:} Andover-Aeroflex flew out of there for many many years, sadly your 130 wont fit :{:{ 2000 ft of superexcitement on a good day:} just think Nimitz class but landlocked LOL LOL yep lakes on both ends of runway.
Have you tried to "Google" your question?If you are ever up this way for an RON or extended ground stop

Mosquito Control


i bought a skeetervac a couple of years ago. one of their earlier models, propane.

it seemed to work well the first season.

second season it wouldn't ignite. not sure why. i took it all apart, cleaned the carbon build up. cleaned the spark, tested it to see nice spark. turned on gas to make sure i could smell it.. put it all together again.. won't start.

seems many people on the net have this issue. i need to call manufacturer soon to see if they have a solution..

in hindsight... i WOULD NOT BUT a skeetervac. it is too costly for initial purchase, and costly to run over one summer. you need two or three replacement traps & scent. and 2 tanks of gas. think how much that is per summer..

i wonder if fogging your backyard with liquid mosquito fog would be cheaper? maybe buy it from ebay?
