Mosquito catchers have always been controversial for me in terms of animal rights. This is why when I write this review of Rush Hampton 61001 Mosquito Catcher it's a little hard to know what to write, to say it's good or don't lure Mosquitoes that mean no harm, it's just their nature.

Rush Hampton 61001 Mosquito Catcher is constructed of durable metal, Electronic application of powdered apoxy for rust resistance, Black/green in color. The quiet fan without propane attracts mosquitoes with non-intrusive attractor lights. And this is where I am not at ease. Kind of not fair to Mosquitoes, but what else can you do?

Where is the review? Basically, you give a few sentences about your dilemma with animal rights and then just rehash the product's official description. Where is your opinion of whether it works, the noise level, sturdiness, etc? I could honestly say that this is the least useful and most pointless "review" I have ever read. And FYI, you may want to revise your opinion given the problem of West Nile virus (and malaria in other parts of the world). No animal (besides humans) ever want to harm another animal. They are only trying to survive. But when their survival interferes with my health, eradicating them [humanely] is more than justified. I suppose you have moral qualms about antibiotics and vaccines as well. After all, bacteria and smallpox, etc are just trying to survive.
I agree with your comments on our review writer. Is this person for real? Animal rights??? Mosquitoes have caused more deaths around the world than any other thing known to man!! That's why they call them pests! I have an 18 month old baby that I enjoy playing with out back and would like to know that she is safe and not being sucked on by some disease carrying insect! Keep your personal opinions to yourself and your views on animal rights. We didn't purchase this product to read that you have trouble sleeping at night because some f*#&king mosquito is being killed.....PAINLESSLY!!! Go hug a tree.
I totally agree with Armen. We should pity those that commented who are are self-important and self-absorbed. If everyone had his view (and mine), the world would be MUCH better off AND a better place! I WILL NOT kill ANYTHING unless there is no other way. The reason I got this is to protect my cats when they go outside during the day! So in this case it's them or the mosquitoes, and we know who must come first there. The product really works well (Baton Rouge). Before hooking this up, I was getting eaten alive before sunrise when I'd fill the bird feeders Now I get maybe 3 or 4 bites PER WEEK, instead of DOZENS per DAY. I wish it also worked on flies, because lately my cats like eating outside and the files are all over, and I don't like having flies on their food. (Maybe a fan blowing across will get rid of them). And to the REAL "IDIOT!!" as he put it (written by "Anonymous"); who's the real "idiot" here moron?? Where TF do you think oxygen comes from???? TREES are not only what's keeping YOU alive, but every living thing on the planet as well!! Trees are the LUNGS of the planet!! Do I also need to tell you what happens when you have no lungs???? No trees=NO LIFE. So who's the real "idiot" here? I think we all know. You're ignorant...and no doubt Republican, since obviously they have another planet on which they and their families can live when this one is dead.
I got one Model # 61005 Its a pice of JUNK Not worth $ 59.00
