Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros: Simple, easy to use, robust.
Cons: No timer.
Tips over easily on uneven ground.
Not available in Canada
Summary: I've bought a Coleman Mosquito Deleto 2500 (not the 2200) two years ago in spring 2006 for use on our acreage in British Columbia, Canada. We're usually there every other weekend and leave it running constantly. Assembly was easy. Instructions were ... read more

Pros: Active Model looks great and seems built to last
Summary: We purchased both the active (vacuum) and passive (adhesive) Mosquito Deleto systems last weekend for our cabin and I can say with no hesitation that the passive system is a complete waste of money but the active system really seems to suck them in. We ... read more

Pros: works great when working
Cons: Unit discontinued, no service parts available although easily serviced
Summary: I love the 2500 Active System so much I traced the problem I was having with it to the little control PC board inside that regulates the fan. One call to Coleman and a really snotty calltaker later I learned that the unit has been discontinued and that ... read more

Pros: When it worked it worked well. Cheaper than Magnet. Quiet, no electrical cord.
Cons: Too many problems starting and keeping it running. Discontinued.
Summary: Coleman must be sick of the problems people (like me) are having with their Deleto 2500 since they have discontinued the product and raised the prices (greatly) on their website for replacement parts. My 2500 worked great at first and I was a big ... read more

Pros: Model 2500 definitely eliminates mosquitoes.
Cons: Maintenance of the gas nozzle is a must.
Summary: Like Architectural wrote earlier, if you just go by Coleman's old models (or the only new models still available), you apparently would not care a bit for Mosquito Deleto. We, however, were fortunate enough to get the 2500 model, and it performs beyond ... read more

Pros: Well, it is cheaper than the other crappy traps
Cons: READ MY LIPS: IT DOES NOT WORK.
Summary: I bought this because it has the "Coleman" name which I thought meant a quality product. HA! This thing attracts a swarm of mosquitoes but doesn't kill any!!! I saw a moth, a couple of ants, and a small wasp stuck to the sticky pad. But no ... read more

Summary: I got this for christmas, Couldn't believe how much I have to spend for propane, sticky traps, and octanol strips. And, This thing does not work! now, I don't know what to do with this. Will donate this to goodwill. Plan to order the Mega Catch ... read more

Pros: Great paper weight, very heavy and sturdy.
Cons: Expensive for a paper weight, and most paperweights don't require consumables.
Summary: Firstly, agree with all other reviews here. This thing does not work at all, in the least. (2200) I bought mine early spring on clearance at Lowe's. Hooked it up a few weeks ago after getting some bites, and checked after a few days and nothing in the ... read more

Pros: uses a vacuum not sticky paper
Cons: Might get confused with prior models which didn't work.
Summary: Most of the reviews I have read posted here do not include the model number of the Coleman Mosquito Deleto they are referring to. The older models used sticky paper. We had those two of those models and they did not work. However, the 2500 does not ... read more

Pros: GREAT decline in mosquitoes
Cons: The expense of the propane
Summary: We bought the Deleto 2500 and have had great success with it. It is NOT the sticky paper kind. I run a daycare and have noticed a great decline in bites on the children....most of them have none at all. We started our Deleto 2500 in July after vacation ... read more

Pros: EASILY ASSEMBLED, STURDY CONSTRUCTION, SMALL "FOOTPRINT" IN SIZE, STYLISH CONSIDERING INTENDED FUNCTION
Cons: IT JUST DOESN'T PERFORM ANY OF THE FUNCTIONS ASSIGNED TO IT!
Summary: I HAVE HAD THIS THING IN MY BACK YARD IN THE MIDDLE OF A VIRTUAL CLOUD OF MOSQUITOES FOR NEARLY 24 HOURS, FULLY FUNCTIONING AS DIRECTED BY COLEMAN, AND HAVE ONLY "TRAPPED" ABOUT HALF A DOZEN MOSQUITOES. I THINK THEY MUST HAVE BEEN BLIND, DISEASED ... read more

Pros: Catches female (biting) mosquitos in droves.
Cons: Expensive maintenance - (which I will pay if it works!)
Uncertain long term effectiveness
Summary: Live near a fresh water river in S. Florida that produces large swarms of very hungry mosquitos so we bought the Deleto 2500 active system for $330 from Lowes. Turned it on Thursday night. By Friday we had caught 40 or so, now up to 80 or so (on ... read more

Cons: It does not work. Period. This unit is a piece of junk.
Summary: I have had the Mosquito Deleto for several years. I live in a heavily infested region and thought this device would help Alleviate the mosquito population around my property. I ran this unit for a full season and it performed shamefully at its duties. ... read more

Pros: Looks cool in the yard if you have a gadget theme going.
Cons: Does not function as advertised and is useless for controlling mosquitoes.
Summary: I bought this unit mostly on the basis of Coleman's generally fine reputation. I wish I had read some product reviews before I did so. I have had no success whatsoever even attracting mosquitoes to the device, much less actually trapping any. The few ... read more

Pros: It's cordless
Cons: It dosen't work for beans.
Summary: I have been running this unit in our back yard, a high mosquito area, for about two weeks now. It hasn't caught,or killed, for that matter, ONE mosquito.Meanwhile, we are being eaten alive. A couple of spiders, a ladybug,and a horsefly are all that are ... read more

Summary: initial review: Mosquito Deleto is a DUD :( by vdirico2,May 31 '05 Pros: It was not a lot of money, so we wasted less money :( Cons: Does not work! I just sent this to Coleman. We have been using our Mosquito Deleto for 3 years now (this ... read more

Pros: Nifty inexpensive Inhibitor it comes with seems to work - but can be bought separately.
Cons: Relies on passive capturing method.
Summary: I live in central Alaska, where mosquitoes are beyond annoying, every summer. I was intrigued by this unit (just like the mosquitoes it intrigues) by the price point and my mosquito dilemma. However, Coleman has not trapped me (just like it doesn't ... read more

Pros: No fan for vacuum, thus no batteries nor cord.. but
Cons: It doesn't work
Summary: I have had one of these traps for over a year, and I have to agree with the conclusion of the other reviewers - it does not work. At the risk of getting bitten I have watched on several occasions what happens. The mosquitoes swarm around the device, ... read more

Pros: Unit is on wheels
Cons: Seems to catch everything BUT mosquitoes!
Is a deathtrap for lizards!
Summary: My parents bought this unit to help control the mosquitoes in our back yard. I was not here to witness its effectiveness over the summer, but by viewing the trap I can say it was not very effective in catching mosquitoes. But, it does have dead lizards ... read more

Pros: Nice house for spiders.
Cons: I don't need a house for spiders.
Summary: Bottom line - IT DOES NOT WORK. Coleman should pull this this product. Buy the Mosquito Magnet, the products works ... read more
