The Mosquito Slayer Pro

The Mosquito Slayer Pro and Mosquito Slayer Series 4 create a flexible solution which is adaptable to almost any application. The secret of the Mosquito Slayer Systems flexibility lies in its ability to operate in a Master / Slave Environment. This creates a cost effective and logical way to extend the Mosquito Slayers range and enhance its ability to break the mosquitoes life-cycle. visit our websitemosquito control

Multiple Mosquito Slayer Satellites connect via a “daisy chain cable” from the Master unit. This removes the need for your satellite units to be located at close proximity to AC Power as the connecting cable also supplies AC power in a safe and weather proof manner. Independent studies have shown the substantial improvement in nightly mosquito catches utilising satellite Mosquito Slayer units. Satellite units can be in any configuration of the Mosquito Slayer Pro and Mosquito Slayer Series 4 (Gas and Non Gas) units.

Cables can be custom ordered to specification to ensure you have enough length to match your application. Call us today to discuss your individual requirements.

Example of Master / Satellite Set Up.

So exactly how does it work? How do I set it up?

Firstly you will need to find a location for your Mosquito Slayer. It is best to try and locate the main source of the problem. The Mosquito Slayer should be placed as close to the source of the problem and as far away from where you are entertaining as possible. This position should also be between the location you are entertaining and the source of the problem so as to attract the mosquitoes on their way to you.

The Mosquito Slayer Pro has a bracket on the back which can be easily attached with a few screws to any solid surface.

The Mosquito Slayer Series 4 has keyhole brackets which allow the unit to be mounted over 2 small screws.

It is sometimes best when starting out to mount the device on a star picket or box trolley until you find the most effective location for your backyard.

Next a dilute lure is made up by mixing 1 capful of either Bantol 181, 42 or 19 (or a combination of the lures) with 1 litre of water.

Lure is then poured into a tray at the front of the Mosquito Slayer (which is enclosed on the Mosquito Slayer Pro).

The units weather proofed power transformer is plugged in to 240v AC wall outlet. This connects to a safe 300ma 12V power cable which can be buried underground if necessary. The supplied cable length is 10m. Longer cable lengths can be purchased to suit any application.

The gas regulator hose is screwed on to a CO2 gas cylinder and the other end connected to a consumable CO2 gas modulator. The gas modulator is then inserted into the Mosquito Slayer and the gas then turned on.
Over the next few weeks:

The CO2 gas modulator produces plumes of CO2 and Octenol every 10-15 seconds.
The liquid lure (Bantol 181, 42 or 19) also breaks down producing a scent proven to be irresistible to Mosquitoes. If Bantol 42 is used, Octenol is also produced in this process.

Mosquitoes are lured to the device, fly up into the device where they are drowned.mosquito control

Ongoing maintenance :

Change CO2 gas bottle. How often depends on the size of the Gas bottle. As a rough guide; 6Kg bottle will last around 2-3 months.

Every 5* weeks (approx), Change CO2 gas modulators. *Based on 24/7 use – only applicable for gas models.

Every 2-5 Days, the layer of dead mosquitoes should be skimmed from the lure tray. Depending on evaporation, lure can be topped up at this stage.

How much does it cost to run?

Both the Mosquito Slayer Series 4 GAS and the Mosquito Slayer Pro use the same amount of lures and attractants. For less than half the cost of a cup of coffee a day, you can protect your family from biting insects all year round. Total estimated running cost is around about $1.10 per day which includes CO2 gas refills, CO2 modulators and of course liquid lure. This cost has been calculated for 24/7 year round use. It should be noted that many people only need to use the Mosquito Slayer for a period of 6 months or less. Obviously this would cut the operating cost significantly.

Consumable Name 12 Month Cost 6 Month Cost
CO2 Refills $140 $70
Lure / CO2 Modulators $250 $125
Total Operating Cost $390 $195
Daily Operating Cost $1.09 $0.54

The Mosquito Slayer solution uses 10 scientifically proven mosquito attractants.

1. Carbon Dioxide (CO2): Mosquitoes can detect the CO2 from a human’s breath from up to 30 metres away. Female mosquitoes use CO2 to orient themselves towards a suitable host to feed on. Carbon dioxide is a primary attractant to most species of mosquitoes and it also enhances the effectiveness of other attractants such as Octenol and Lactic lure.

2. Lactic Lure: Released naturally through human perspiration and animal sweat. Its effectiveness is enhanced by Carbon Dioxide.

3. Heat: Mosquitoes are drawn to the body heat of humans. A heating element in the trap produces a controlled radiating warm surface that closely mimics typical body temperature.

4. Octenol: Unlike many other mosquito control products, the Mosquito Slayer creates its own Octenol. Octenol is attractive to many species of mosquitoes especially when combined with Carbon Dioxide. Octenol is a naturally occurring by-product that comes from animals that ingest large amounts of vegetable matter, such as cattle.

5. Moisture: The trap produces a moist, warm air stream that simulates human perspiration. Moisture is provided by evaporation induced by the fan-circulated warm air passing over the lactic-water solution in the collection tray.

6. Spectrum Light: Random frequencies of pulsed light are refracted through a prismatic disperser to provide a wide spectrum of attractive light wavelengths to cater to the selective nature of some mosquito species.

7. Ultraviolet Light (UV): UV light attracts certain species particularly night feeders.

8. Sound: Amplified high frequency sound mimics the sound of a blood-feeding female mosquito to attract other females to join in the blood feed.

9. Movement: Mosquitoes are attracted to the movement of potential hosts. The pulsing of the spectrum light gives the illusion of movement to a female mosquito.

10. Colour: Mosquitoes are drawn to dark colours. The black casing of the trap helps mosquito in-flight orientation toward a host.

SEO Tips for Blog Posts

In all of my years as a SEO, perhaps one of the most popular questions I consistently receive from clients, and one of the most important SEO tips for blog posts and title length is “How long should my title and blog post be for it to rank well?” While nobody can possibly define exactly what these lengths should be, there are some general best practices when considering how to title your blog post and how long it should be. If there was an exact length, every blog you ever read would be the exact same length. How boring and predictable! SEO Company

Blog Title Length

Consistently blogging day in and day out is one of the best content marketing strategies you can have to attract new and engaged visitors to your website. However, nobody will ever click, nor will the find you if your title does not do a great job of capturing a searcher’s attention. In general, the ideal length of a blog title is around 6 words, or around 100 characters including spaces between words. Words such as “for”, “a”, “the”, “and” and so on are typically not counted when consider length by word count, but are counted when considering by character length, so use sparingly.

Your blog title length should be 6 words that people will use as part of their query when seeking information on the topic you have written about. The 6 words should be chosen carefully in such a way that they have good search volume, are in logical order based on the most favorable combination searchers may use when trying to location your information, and are relevant to the content you are discussing in your blog post. Additionally, it has been studied and confirmed, according to a post by KISSmetrics, that most people remember the first three words they read and the last three, so 6 is the ideal number to make sure they comprehend the entire title. seo

Blog Content Length

In addition to having a well-constructed blog title, another SEO tip for blog posts and title length is deciding how long your blog post should be. Writing great content that both searchers and search engines will view as valuable and unique is not an easy task. Most of us, me included, are not great writers by nature. We have to work at it just to keep up with the competition. If you work at it and still find that your content is less than ideal, consider hiring a professional copywriter to help you develop great content consistent. Writing blog content that ranks well is both an art form and a science. There are general two schools of thought when it comes to length that ranks well.The first school of thought is that your content should only be as long as it needs to be to be considered unique, covers your topic thoroughly and adds to the overall conversation online. Does this mean 50 words are enough? What about 5000? The answer is actually somewhere in between. I would advise at least 500 words.

The other school of thought is that the more content you provide, the more content the search engines have to index and possibly align you with when considering keyword combinations within your text. While this content development strategy may work for some, in general, writing for search engines first and your users second, is a sure fire way to content failure. The search engines are getting smarter about this tactic and it is advised to avoid it when it is not natural.seo

For the average blog post, my suggestion is somewhere between 400-500 words with a title around 55 characters or 6 major words. Stick to this recipe as one of the most important tips for blog posts

p>You Home or Business Needs to Rely on Quality Dallas Plumbing

When it comes to Dallas plumbing, there are a number of instances when you need someone and you need them fast. If you own a home or a commercial business for instance, and you’ve learned that your plumbing is not up to code, you need someone who can assist you quickly, so that your business is not interrupted.

An inexperienced plumber is never a good choice. Someone who may not have many years in business or who just started a business is one thing. However, a plumber who has never repaired a leaky shower, or someone who can’t find the water main is something else completely. You want your new bathroom, or your existing one, to work as it should. Hiring someone who lacks experience with plumbing Dallas is simply going to add to your list of problems.

Consider what would happen for instance if the sink in your restaurant kitchen stopped working suddenly. Your staff couldn’t wash dishes. Now, imagine the health inspector walked into your kitchen and saw those piles of dirty dishes, and the sink not working. This could cause your business to be completely shut down. Businesses have to keep abreast of many laws and regulations in order to continue operating as they do. Unfortunately, not all of them always have a reliable plumber on speed dial.

If you own a business, knowing who to call for your plumbing in Dallas is essential. Whether you need to unclog a pipe, repair a leaky toilet, or you have an issue that could actually cause your business to be closed until it’s repaired, you need a reliable plumber that will come to your aid whenever those little issues get in the way of operating your business. Having a reliable plumbing company that you can count on is essential in keeping your business up to scale and operating.

For homeowners, a quality plumber is important as well. When it comes to improving or protecting your home, experience should always be your first choice. While cost is of course, an important factor to consider, you obviously don’t want to sacrifice quality for a few dollars in savings. Choosing a plumber who has experience could actually save you money, as you will have fewer problems down the road, such as having to redo the plumbing yourself or hire an experienced plumber to fix a problem caused by someone who simply doesn’t know what they’re doing. Experience should always be your first thought when it comes to having your bathroom plumbing installed or repaired.

If you’re struggling with a plumbing issue in your office which requires professional attention, then it makes the most sense to call a professional plumber. A professional plumber knows how to fix plumbing problems in the best way possible so you won’t need to deal with the problem again. By calling a top Dallas plumber you’ll enjoy top-quality service from an experienced plumber who knows how to get the job done right the first time.
