Tougher than Tom mosquito repellant

Has anyone tried this? I can't imagine how it works putting buckets on just the 4 corners of a 1 acre property, but it seems to get good reviews

I am highly skeptical. As for reviews, where did you see those reviews? I would take that into consideration.

Never heard of this until now. Nowhere do they tell us what the active ingredients are, or any Safety Data Sheet or technical info, at least that I could find. Reading elsewhere, apparently it's a sugar and yeast and salt based bait. Mosquitos eating bait? I'm in the very skeptical camp with this product.
The attached link offers analysis from someone other than the seller/manufacturer. I did not watch any of the videos, but did read the article and summary at the end. I suggest reading the summary and the following commentary from skeptics and proponents and the reviewers' response.
Many factors will change mosquito behavior quickly, such as drought, wind direction, time of year, results from large scale mosquito treatment even if not in the immediate area. Confirmation bias is a factor that will make one believe that they made a good purchase/decision.
