This trap attracts and kills mosquitoes in yards up to one acre without harmful chemicals. The trap mimics the natural conditions of human habitation by emitting heat and odorless carbon dioxide (the same gas people expel during respiration) and light to lure mosquitoes. Carbon dioxide is generated when ultraviolet rays from two fluorescent bulbs react with a titanium dioxide coating inside the trap. When the mosquitoes are drawn inside the device, an integrated fan traps the insects and sends them to a removable net where they die of dehydration and shrivel. Unlike propane systems that require frequent refills or electrocution traps that release pathogens when an insect is killed, this superior model uses 3,000-hour rated UV bulbs and does not create biological agents. Plugs into AC. 22" H x 13" Diam. (9 lbs.)
The One-Acre Natural Attractant Mosquito Trap comes with The Hammacher Schlemmer Lifetime Guarantee. If this product ever disappoints you, for any reason, you may return your Hammacher Schlemmer purchase for exchange, credit, or refund.

Amazing mosquito trap!
from Fair Oaks, CA
I set up the trap as soon as it arrived and within 24 hours I had over 150 mosquitos and moths in the container below!! In less than a week I have killed over 500!Only thing is, there is no way to open it without letting the live ones out. I used my wife's hair dryer to "toast" them before I opened it. It works!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Trap for all kind of pesky insects
By Redneck Yankee
from Danville, NH
Was amazed as to the variety and types of pesky insects it catches. Some reviewers complained it was noisy but my experience is that it is fairly quiet. Had a problem with a light that went bad, called Hammacher Schlemmer and they replaced whole unit without a question and we simply returned first unit after replacement was received. Great customer service and great company to do business with.

Not working as well as expected
from Whistler, BC
Fan is strong enough to catch insects flying near the unit but so loud it keeps most insects away. The light seems to attract Moths at night but during the day, mosquitos avoid it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Thank you for your feedback. The trap attracts flying insects to the unit by the light along with the CO2 that is generated by the photo-catalysis between the UV lamps and the TiO2 coat, and then the fan pulls the insects into the net, trapping them until they dehyrdrate. For best catch results, leave unit on at all times (except when cleaning or servicing), and place unit away from other competing light sources.

Not a cure-all
By Amy in Minnesota
from Saint Paul, MN
This unit is easy to assemble, quiet, and compact. We placed it on our back deck and have been running it 24/7 for 10 days now. We live in a neighborhood close to downtown, moderate tree coverage and no water/lakes. It has collected about 100 bugs, mostly moths and bees, just a handful of mosquitos. I have always had a strong histamine reaction to mosquito bites and have managed to get bit through heavy bug spray applications and throughy clothes. I was hoping this product help in some way. All I can say is I still get bitten. I believe this device is meant to be a beacon for bugs, but some bite-prone people may find they are still more attractive to mosquitos.
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Please note that this unit is designed to disintegrate mosquitoes so you will not see them collecting in the unit, even if capturing. Please remember that we back our merchandise with a lifetime guarantee. Should you ever find that an item doesn’t perform to your satisfaction, our customer service team is available at 1-800-321-1484 to assist you with returning it.

Great Way to Kill Flying Bugs
from Prince George B.C. Canada
The Dyna Trap is very easy to use. Good delivery. Great thing about it is no more sticky paper to wrap around it. No more propane bottles to fill every two to three weeks. No expensive bait to buy. Sold my my other mosquito control device one month after the Dyna Trap arrived. It is more efficient and kills more than mosquitoes. Inexpensive to operate. Great device highly recommend it to anyone.

Is just what it say it is.
from San Sebastian, Puerto Rico
No complaints about the trap. Trap like no other. The best part of this product purchase is that it's , efficient, and real easy to clean. Highly recommend this trap for large area's. It's quiet and heavy duty in performance. Large trap area, minimizing between cleaning.

I'm Not Ashamed To Recommend This To You
from Novi, Michigan
We consider this unit a great deck accessory. Very easy to set up and put into operation. You can see the results in the trap's screen cage area. Just plug it in and turn it on. I haven't had to do anything to it since we set it up except let it run.We did buy backup light bulbs for it just in case, as we don't now the life expectancy of the installed bulbs. We had previously owned another brand mosquito trap that required regular maintenance and a special chemical pack. Mega Catch has no such requirement. We think you'll like it.
