They are not just nuisance but the seemingly harmless bite can lead to harmful and life threatening medical conditions like yellow fever, malaria, West Nile virus, Chikungunya, filariasis, dengue fever, and Zika virus among others.
Today these small flies have earned the tag of being the “deadliest animal family in the world”. How do you fight such a menace? There are several ways to keep this menace out of your home including using aerosol repellant and insecticide sprays, mosquito traps, CDC-recommended repellents like picaridin, foggers, and electronic mosquito repellent devices among others. One of the best solutions to keep mosquitoes out of your home space is by using Dynatrap Insect Trap.
How does DynaTrap works?
DynaTrap uses the warmth and glow of UV light to lure in mosquitoes and other insects. Insects and other pests are attracted towards light and height
CO2 is released from and organic matter with the help photo-catalytic reaction of Titanium Dioxide treated surfaces and UV-Light. Carbon dioxide (co2) is irresistible to mosquitoes and the mosquitoes are attracted to Co2 like a magnet.
DynaTrap machine has a strong, but yet silent fan vacuums the insects that attracted towards the light into the retaining cage where they dehydrate and die.
What makes the DynaTrap as the best product for controlling mosquitoes?
The DynaTrap works quietly (no buzzing sound) and effectively kills mosquitoes and other pests & insects without zapping or chemicals. Most importantly it works safely.
How is this insect trap different than other products on the market?
Most insect traps available on the market use chemicals to kill the insects. Whereas the DynaTrap does not utilize any chemicals — so it can safely be used both indoors and outdoors. Also, this does not use electricity to kill insects, so no more annoying and zapping noises, burning odors, or insect fragments scattered on the floor or ground.
Since it does not use propane to generate carbon dioxide (co2) so you do not need to purchase and refill propane tanks by spending your money. Just plug it in and turn it on, let it run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
