Dynatrap Insect Eliminator Review

Living in Florida, mosquitoes and other pesky insects is a frequent nuisance to outdoor activities. It is especially important to eliminate these insects from our yard because of a deadly West Nile virus outbreak in our state.

Dynatrap® has a wide range of insect trap models that will catch moths, mosquitos and many other garden pests…………without having to use potentially harmful chemicals or open flames! That really captured my interest so I was excited to put the Dynatrap®3 Insect Eliminator to the test.

We hung our Dynatrap® 3 Insect Eliminator on our covered screened in porch in the backyard. This model covers up to ½ acre (or a 1000 sq. foot room). The patent pending design works by luring pests into the warmth of a ulta-violet fluorescent light and by emitting CO2 to mimic a human’s breath and body temperature. Once the mosquito or bug is inside the insect eliminator it will get sucked in by a vacuum fan where it will be trapped inside and die.

Unlike a bug zapper, the Dynatrap® 3 is very quiet and we hardly notice that it is even there while providing protection from mosquitoes. It has a 10 foot cord and can be run 24 hours per day for 7 days a week giving round the clock protection. The bulb lasts for an impressive 3,000 hours and can be replaced with a new bulb as needed.

My daughter has asthma and allergies so we don’t use products that contain chemicals or has a harsh odor that can irritate her respiratory issues. With the Dynatrap® there is no worry about that because it works without chemicals or pesticides.

My husband likes the durable design that comes ready to hang with a mounting bracket. It also has a hook on top so it can be hung if preferred. It is easy to set up, just plug it in and it starts to lure in the mosquitoes and bugs. We emptied ours after one week and found it easy to empty it inside a small trash bag so that the dead bugs and live bugs could quickly be tied up in the bag and disposed of. We are very pleased with the results so far from using it because we normally leave our porch and pool area before dusk when the biting insects come out in droves. Since setting up our Dynatrap® 3 (SRP $139) we have been able to stay out until dark with relatively no bug bites.

Are you ready to eliminate those pesky mosquitoes and insects? If so, you are invited to visit Dynatrap® and browse the entire selection of insect eliminators to choose the perfect one for your home.
