Usage, Care & Safety

The MKS unit is equipped with a 3-prong ground plug and must be connected to an appropriate receptacle (120v/60Hz) that is properly installed and grounded in order to reduce the risk of electrical shock.Locate the MKS near a 3-prong ground receptacle power source.

If an extension cord must be used to supply the power to the unit:
1) Use only 3-conductor extension cords that have 3-prong ground plugs on both ends.
2) Use only extension cords containing a surface mark rating of SJW-A,SJEW-A or SJTW-A and having a tag stating, “Suitable for use with outdoor appliances.”
3) The extension cord must be kept dry and off the ground.
4) Never connect a damaged extension cord to the MKS unit

If used, the electrical rating of the extension cord must be equal to or greater than the electrical rating of the MKS. (684 watts/5.7 Amps.)

To reduce the risk of electrocution, do not place the MKS next to or within 20-feet of a swimming pool where it could possibly tip over if mounted on the portable stand.

Do not place the MKS over standing water, due to the risk of electrocution.

A licensed electrician for permanent placement of the unit should install any electrical supply.

Consult a qualified electrician or serviceman if any doubt exists concerning your grounded power source.

Do not abuse the power cord.Never carry the MKS unit by the cord, or jerk the cord to disconnect from the power receptacle.

Keep the cord away from heat, oil and sharp edged objects

Never insert foreign objects into the MKS unit.

Do not clean the unit with liquid cleaners. Never spray water into the MKS.

An authorized ARCTIC representative should perform all servicing.

Do not operate the MKS when the MKS has a restricted airflow. (i.e. sitting on a table or on the ground directly)

The MKS is safe around children and pets. A manual reset default breaker is located at the back, under the top of the unit. Depress the button until it engages and the unit will be reset.

Capture Net

The Arctic Mosquito Killing System™ capture net is mainly used for Mosquito Control Monitoring Programs.

The Arctic Mosquito Killing System™ capture net should be used by a trained service representative, to determine an optimum location for the Arctic Mosquito Killing System unit and monitoring for the mosquito population.

The Arctic Mosquito Killing System™ capture net is included with all units to confirm a mosquito kill. The capture net will also assist in determining the direction of infestation


During the many years of research and development it took 4 years alone to determine the correct airflow, which is a critical factor in the Arctic Mosquito Killing System™ performance. After determining a location for your Arctic Mosquito Killing System™, remove the capture net for best results in reducing the mosquito population.
