Spartan Mosquito v. Colin Purrington

AC2T, Inc, a Mississippi company valued at over $100 million, is suing me in Federal court over my review of the Spartan Mosquito Eradicator. It’s a SLAPP — a strategic lawsuit against public participation. I.e., it was filed to silence me. A secondary goal of the lawsuit is to silence others who might otherwise inform the world that product is a complete scam. Spartan Mosquito is likely pleased with how it’s all going at the moment, but eventually it will regret suing me.

The device in question is a plastic tube filled with sugar, salt, yeast, and water. The box claims that tubes will kill up to 95% of mosquitoes in a yard for 90 days. Watch this to see the founder and pitchman. That video will be featured at the trial against Spartan Mosquito (it’s a class-action lawsuit).

The tubes are primarily sold at feed stores in rural areas of the United States. Among a certain demographic the device is hugely popular.

If you’d like to contribute toward my defense, I set up a GoFundMe page. But what I’d really like is for people to send a message to their regional EPA offices. Please tell them to investigate this company. I would also be grateful if you shared my review on Facebook and Nextdoor.
