SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) - The Spartan Mosquito Eradicator, a product that claims to completely eliminate mosquitoes, is flying off the shelves all around the south. Southwest Louisiana is no exception.
Their website says the product works by catching hunting mosquitoes by emitting the same attractant triggers that draw mosquitoes to people and animals. Once trapped in the Eradicator, the website says "mosquitoes that feed will perish."
The company claims the mosquito population will drop dramatically in fifteen days and will be 95 percent controlled for up to 90 days.
The product is sold locally at Fletcher's Feed and Farm Supply in Sulphur and Landry's Feed Store in Crowley.
Jeff Granger, owner of Fletcher's Feed says they've carried the Spartan Mosquito Eradicators for a few months, with sales increasing as time goes on. He said many of the customers are coming back to get more of the product, praising its effectiveness.
Granger and Ken Landry, owner of Landry's Feed Store, both say they use the Eradicator at their homes and it seems to be working very well.
