The Great Backyard Sweepstakes will help more people learn about effective mosquito elimination, and one lucky winner will receive our most advanced mosquito trap!
(PRWEB) May 03, 2011
Residents of the 50 U.S. states who are age 21 or older as of May 2, 2011, may enter the Great Backyard Sweepstakes between May 2 and May 31, 2011. The winner will be announced on/around June 10, 2011.
The grand-prize Executive mosquito trap is perfect for people who have larger yards covering up to an area of one acre. The unit's smart technology includes an easy-to-read LCD panel for enhanced diagnostics, along with four fuel-saving modes that allow the Executive to run off of one ordinary 20 lb propane tank for up to 30 days.
Like all Mosquito Magnet traps the Executive is independently proven to capture more mosquitoes than any other trap available today. The unit fights mosquitoes by interrupting the pests' breeding cycles through Mosquito Magnet's patented Counterflow™ and catalytic conversion process. Through Counterflow technology, the Executive turns propane (supplied by a 20 lb propane tank) into carbon dioxide, then combines that carbon dioxide with heat and moisture. The result: mosquitoes think humans are nearby and come toward the simulated human presence. Once they get close enough, specialized attractants entice mosquitoes right to the trap, which vacuums them into a net. There, they dehydrate and die within 24 hours.
"Mosquito Magnet wants people to get outside and have fun with friends and family in the backyard this summer," stated Kelly Howard, category development associate for Mosquito Magnet, parent company Woodstream Corporation. "Mosquitoes can make outdoor living spaces extremely unpleasant. The Great Backyard Sweepstakes will help more people learn about effective mosquito elimination, and one lucky winner will receive our most advanced mosquito trap."
