My wife bought an Executive model Mosquito Magnet in 7/2012. When it arrived, I set it up and used it for the rest of the summer of 2012.
Whether it was effective or not was dubious, but I was willing to try. This year in August, I had been using it again this summer, when I saw the red light on. Closer examination revealed that the regulator hose had been chewed in pieces by what can only be a squirrel. I called the consumer service number, and spoke to "Nicole" who checked to be sure of the date of purchase, and when it was over a year, declined to fix it under warranty.
I stated that I was sure that I could not be the only person who ever had a damage complaint of squirrels, and she said she "hardly had any complaints" like mine. The nearest repair facility is 50 miles away, requiring 2 100 mile round trips, or $40 estimated ups shipping. Plus either $36 or $66 for the service. Am I pissed?
I am of the opinion that this machine is a carefully designed scam designed to suck money out of consumers who really want to control insects without chemicals. Won't be fooled again.
Monetary Loss: $700.
