We purchased our new home a little over a year ago. It sits on right under 1 acre of land and is backed by a small creek. The first thing we noticed as soon as it got warm out it how bad the bags were. Our property is surrounded by about 110 acres of pasture and that combined with the creek means we get a whole lot of bugs, especially mosquitoes. We have tried a few things, of course we have tried the insect repellent which I hate the smell of and the fact that it is a chemical. We also tried those small bug repellent things that have gas cartridges and little citronella pads. The problem with those is you have to wait for the pad to heat up and start emitting the odors and unless we are staying outside all day they really don’t start working until we are ready to come inside.
Introducing the Dynatrap XL, our answer and yours to those pesky bugs. So there are a lot of things I love about this insect trap. No chemicals and no odors makes me a very happy Momma. It is very quiet, no zapping or buzzing. The XL model protects up to 1 acre which is perfect for us and it features a durable all weather construction so we leave it on outside and will do so until Winter when we will store it until next Spring. This insect trap will trap and kill mosquitoes, biting flies, Asian beetles, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, moths, stink bugs and more!
This insect trap uses three protection. First, a UV fluorescent bulb generates a warm light, attracting insects. Then a second lure, an exclusive Ti02 titanium dioxide-coated surface, produces CO2 (the same gas we emit when we exhale) that’s irresistible to mosquitoes. Third, a powerful, yet whisper-quiet vacuum fan sucks insects into the retaining cage where they dehydrate and die.
Setting up the Dynatrap XL is so easy, just attach the screen base to the bottom with a simple twist and when you are ready to empty it, just twist counter clockwise, empty and reattach. It features a heavy duty hanger for mounting and we just bought a large shepherds hook from a local home improvement store and placed in the yard down by our deck, plugged it in and the bug killing began.
Dynatrap offers a variety of insect traps. If you do not need the model that covers up to an acre have other products that have a smaller coverage area and they even offer insect traps that come with a stands. Dynatrap products can be purchased directly from their website as well as Amazon.com.
