Midge Traps


The Predator trap is now SOLD OUT and we are not expecting more stock this year. Please consider the SkeeterVac trap and contact us for more information. 


We offer two types of midge/mosquito trap. The Predator Dynamic and the SkeeterVac SV35. These are both excellent at trapping biting insects. 

The Predator Dynamic is the Ultimate Weapon against the biting midge or mosquitoes. The SkeeterVac SV35 is a slightly smaller trap with amazing performance.

These space-age machines combine 6 different cues to attract midges and other biting insects, including mosquitoes, effectively mimicking a large smelly cow:

  • Breath - CO2, moisture and heat
  • Heat - body temperature
  • Body odour (octenol lure)
  • Movement - blinking LED lights
  • Visual - patterned white & black sticky paper
  • Light - 360 degrees attraction using UV LED's

Once attracted, midges are drawn inside the trap, where they are collected in a water tray (Predator) or a smaller, dry tray (SkeeterVac). Powered by a propane cylinder and requiring no other power, the free-standing machine is perfect for gardens, outdoor events, golf greens and other sporting events.

Please note, traps are shipped directly by our supplier, with an anticipated delivery of approximately 3 days post order placement. The cost of delivery is included in the trap price; if placing a mixed order, any delivery charge is for items additional to the trap.

Traps are shipped without consumables, so remember to get your octenol and sticky papers!

Traps also require propane gas (not included). We recommend a 13kg bottle that will last around 4 weeks.
