There is no shortage of articles highlighting the effects that climate change is having on the habitat range of disease-carrying mosquitoes. It seems that each year we see mosquito-borne virus cases being reported in regions of the U.S. where reporting was negligible or non-existent in the past.
Consumers have taken to trying all sorts of methods to reduce mosquito populations in their yards in an attempt to reduce their chances of contracting a disease – not to mention the annoying itch of a mosquito bite. They’ve purchased zappers. They’ve sprayed repellent on themselves. They’ve used citronella products. They’ve even enlisted the services of mosquito control service companies. Some of these methods have conflicting studies as to whether they are effective. Others bring with them safety or ecological concerns. Some pesticides used in spraying or fogging services are a safety concern to people and pets. The mosquito control service technician spraying those pesticides will even warn you not to enter the affected area for a period of time so as not to risk your or your pet’s health. Further, those same pesticides are lethal to beneficial insects like the honey bee which is a pollinator – a critical ecological component of the food supply system on which the entire world relies.
For ten years, DynaTrap has been reducing mosquito and other biting insect populations one backyard at a time. And they’ve done it without harmful chemicals or pesticides. DynaTrap utilizes a unique eco-friendly approach to insect elimination. These electronic devices use UV light and CO2 to mimic human beings and maximize predatory insect attraction. Its strong yet silent fan vacuums the insects into a retaining cage where they dehydrate and expire within 24 hours. Designed to operate 24/7, DynaTrap works brilliantly to disrupt the mosquito lifecycle by removing the biting female mosquitoes from your outdoor living environment. This prevents multiple future generations of mosquitoes from being born. Additionally, it’s effective in attracting and killing other nuisance insects like biting flies, black flies, moths, no-see-ums, Asian lady beetles, midges, yellow jackets, wasps, and hornets.
DynaTrap has a variety of models to satisfy the different needs and price points of your customers. Their outdoor traps range from ¼ acre to one acre in coverage with suggested retail pricing from $69.99 – $214.99. They also have a line of indoor traps as well with MSRP’s ranging from $24.99 – $99.99. The recently introduced Flylight indoor fly trap attracts and kills house flies, fruit flies, drain flies, mosquitoes, Asian lady beetles, stink bugs and more by combining its ATRAKTAGLO UV light technology and Stickytech glue card. A unique feature of the Flylight is its ability to hide the unattractive “catch”, allowing it to work discretely. It comes with three replacement Stickytech glue cards and, at $24.99 MSRP, it fits most household budgets for insect control.
