Amazon.com Review

Using four attractants to lure mosquitoes, flies, and otherbiting insects, this electronic device effectively controls suchinsects in all directions over an acre of ground. Key to the device'sperformance is the patented heartbeat sound it radiates at a lowfrequency that's virtually inaudible to humans but attracts insectsover a wide area. When they get closer, insects are drawn in by thesmell of a strip emitting the natural fragrance of octenol, whichmimics breath, ultraviolet reflection that mimics movement; and theunit's 110-degree-F heat--like that of a warm-blooded victim. Luredinto the device, insects are captured by a WebTrap adhesive papercoated with a special glue that's effective in all weather, includingrain. Each WebTrap is good for about seven days, and an octenol striplasts four weeks. (Four WebTraps and one strip included, withreplacement kits available separately.)

Lightweight, portable (with a built-in handle), weatherproof, andharmless to pets and children, the device operates at a low voltage andcan be left on continuously during hot/dry seasons. A control attachedto the 50-foot power cord turns the device on and off, and LED lightsindicate when the unit is operating. For storage, the cord wrapsunderneath the unit's base. The device measures 19 inches high and 15inches in diameter. --Fred Brack ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Sonic web
I ordered this product after seeing a television advertisement. I usually never fall for those "paid advertisements" but this seemed like a no lose deal. I've had the SonicWeb for a week and a half now. The first week it caught about 50 mosquitos, about 5 flies, and thousands of real small red bugs. I still get occassionaly bitten when outside by the pool but the mosquitos don't drive me in like they used to. Over the last week the SonicWeb has been true to form and caught clsoe to 50 more mosquitos. It took a few days to start catching mosquitos but it seems to have kicked into gear. I'm not sure if it actually "reducing" the mosquitos in my yard but it is at least catching some of them. I'll probably keep the unit to see if it continues to work. I just hope I'm not drawing more mosquitos to my yard because of the unit. My friend recently purchased a "Mosquito Deleto" and he asid it caught about 10 mosquitos in a week. He lives in a more urban part of town so there may not be as many mosquitos to catch. It's not a real expensive piece of equipment for the results that it has shown so far. I'll write a followup review soon.

4-0 out of 5 stars generally a great product
I was skeptical about this product but we purchased a home in an area that was obviously going to have a major mosquito population. I purchased two machines and have to change the "fly paper" regularly or the flying criters are in line waiting to die. I am not sure about the acre coverage but for the price they are GREAT!!

5-0 out of 5 stars It worked in a rainforest
I was skeptical. Living in HawaiƔi, with an annual rainfall in my neighborhood of over 125", we lived with a lot of mosquitos. Doing laundry meant running a gauntlet of hungry biters.

A neighbor had tried a competing, propane-powered mosquito trap, that was patently ineffective. The manufacturer of this competing unit explained to my neighbor that the species of mosquito most problematic here, the Asian Tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus), was not the target species for their unit.

We deployed the SonicWeb device in mid-January, and by the middle of February, both my wife and I noticed a distinct reduction in the number of mosquitos. We also noticed that one of our pets, who has an allergy to mosquitos and who had suffered from a chronic raw irritation on his nose, experienced a marked healing. By the end of the month of February, the mosquito population by our laundry was virtually nonexistent.

Interestingly, I've noted very few adult female Aedes albopictus on the sticky paper. Most of the mosquitos I see there are small, leading me to suspect that the trap is attracting juveniles and males, effectively interrupting the mating and reproductive cycle.

It's now June. Yesterday, conversing with another neighbor, one living right next door, I asked if he'd noticed a decrease in mosquitos, and he agreed, saying that his visiting son and daughter-in-law, who previously had been particularly affected by mosquito bites in prior years, had remarked on the fact that none were present this year.

I'm not generally given to unsolicited product recommendations, but the SonicWeb unit has been a product that worked as advertised.

1-0 out of 5 stars 1st one broke, replacement broke, we gave up.
The product did catch mosquitos. But it did not seem to effect the number of bites we got. After one season it stopped working. I took it apart and found the heating unit had burned out. Possibly a fire hazard. Called the company and they sent me a new one. It died after about 1/2 a season. We decided to just give up. Spraying Malathion every now and then is more effective.

1-0 out of 5 stars Still waiting for results
I bought this product and set it up over two months ago. It has only managed to attract a few stray leaves and other random windblown debris. Oh yeah! And one large fly today! Mosquito season is in full swing, and we have a party coming up. It's truth or consequences time. ... Read more
