Simple, Efficient and Durable.
The Dragonfly II® was developed under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the Agricultural Research Service (ARS), the chief scientific research agency of the United States Department of Agriculture.
The Dragonfly II lures mosquitoes with a blend of carbon dioxide (CO2), heat and octenol, the same chemical cues that attract mosquitoes and other biting insects in nature. When animals and humans breathe, they exhale an invisible mixture of CO2 and octenol (a type of alcohol). Mosquitoes and biting insects have receptors that detect these chemicals up to 100 feet away. Mosquitoes are attracted by these chemicals and will fly immediately toward the human or animal target they have detected. Mosquitoes also have delicate heat sensors that help them locate their blood supply. As they get closer to their prey, they use these sensors to find landing sites where the blood is closest to the surface.
The Dragonfly mimics the human or animal blood system, which helps lure mosquitoes to the trap. It looks and smells like the animals mosquitoes prefer, drawing them away from people. The difference is that when mosquitoes hone in on the target and stop to dine, they are killed with an electronic pulse and fall into a removable tray. That's a big advantage over traditional electrical bug-zapping type traps that splatter mostly beneficial insects everywhere into tiny bits.
The Dragonfly II weighs 15 pounds and is approximately 16.5 inches by 16.5 inches by 16.25 inches tall. State of the art components and advanced materials are used throughout, for years of safety, reliability and colorfast beauty... even in direct sunlight.
No maintenance is required. A patented microprocessor controls the emission of CO2, octenol and the thermal image generated by the Dragonfly II. No matter what the temperature, the microprocessor maintains these attractants at optimal levels: To a mosquito, the Dragonfly II always looks like a shaved rabbit!
The dragonfly II features 8 operating modes: The machine can be switched to either evening, or night, or afternoon so that it automatically runs only when mosquitoes are present. The machine can run on automatic for computer-managed efficiency.
In addition, the dosage of CO2 attractant released can be controlled:
You can select high level for periods or areas of heavy infestation,
and or moderate level for periods or areas of normal infestation.
Finally, it can be set to work without CO2, by only using the
patented insect lure and the infra-red attractant.
The Dragonfly II is quiet and easy to operate. Follow some simple placement instructions, then the only additional equipment needed is an electrical outlet. Control lights indicate operating mode and warn when CO2 level is low.
The Dragonfly II is CUL approved. It uses 115/230 volts and 50Hz/60Hz electricity. Consumption is comparable to a 40 watt light bulb.
The unit operates in a non-toxic mode of action. The patented attractants are registered with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for controlling mosquitoes and other biting insects. The CO2 (not supplied) is easily available from WalMart, Dick's Sporting Goods, Lowe's or other stores. Some locations fill empty bottles, but most locations exchange full bottles for empty ones.
With the Dragonfly Mosquito System, you can protect your family without harming other beneficial insects or the environment.
The Dragonfly Mosquito System® combines the Dragonfly II and a Conceal dispenser such as the Mosquito 'Cognito or the Conceal Candle. This one-two punch offers the most efficient and cost effective system on the market.
The Dragonfly II features a one year parts and labor warranty and a 30-day satisfaction or your money back guarantee. Very few competitors are sufficiently confident about their product to offer this type of warranty.
