DynaTrap Insect Traps
Q: How does the DynaTrap attract mosquitoes?
A: Carbon dioxide, the gas you emit when you exhale, is the most universally recognized mosquito attractant and draws mosquitoes from up to 200 feet away. Other attractants include body odors (sweat, lactic acid, etc.) and heat. The DynaTrap mimics these conditions through the creation of carbon dioxide and the light and heat given off by the UV Bulb.
Q: How soon does the DynaTrap control mosquitoes and other flying insects?
A: The trap will begin to catch mosquitoes and other flying insects immediately. It will gradually reduce your mosquito population and within 6 weeks you will have successfully broken the mosquito’s lifecycle.
Q: Does the DynaTrap attract other insects? What about beneficial insects?
A: The DynaTrap attracts and kills many flying insects including mosquitoes, biting flies, Asian beetles, no see-ums, wasps, hornets, moths, stink bugs, and more. It will not attract butterflies, honeybees, and bumblebees.
Q: Should I leave the DynaTrap plugged in all the time?
A: Yes. The DynaTrap should be left on 24 hours a day, seven days a week (except when cleaning) during the insect and mosquito season. In some areas of the world this might be several months during the summer, in other areas, it may be year-around. DynaTrap reaches maximum effectiveness in 6-8 weeks, but please continue running DynaTrap 24/7 after this period for the duration of the insect and mosquito season.
Q: How long do the insects stay alive in the retaining cage?
A: Once insects are trapped in the retaining cage, they may stay alive for 12-24 hours (depending on the insect), before they die from dehydration.
Q: How often do the glue boards need changed?
A: Every 30 days or as needed, depending on how quickly the glue card fills up with insects, or if the glue has dried after 30 days.
Q: Can the Flylight be mounted sideways or upside-down?
A: Yes, the Flylight can be mounted sideways or upside down if necessary, without hurting its effectiveness. If the glue card if falling out when mounted upside down, fold over the top corner of the glue card to stop it from slipping out.
Q: Can the Flylight be used near another light?
A: While the Flylight traps bugs day and night, the warmth and glow is especially effective when there is little competing light.
Q: Can the Flylight be used outdoors?
A: Yes, but only in a covered outdoor area, where it will not get wet.
Q: What does Atrakta smell like?
A: The Atrakta sachet is designed to mimic the natural body odors of humans. Some may consider it to be unpleasant.
Q: What do I do with the Atrakta packet?
A: The Atrakta mosquito lure can be placed inside the cage where insects are collected, or on top of the damper flaps, or adhered to the underside of the cage. There is a small adhesive spot on the sachet so it can be stuck to the bottom of the trap, either inside the cage or outside. Each sachet will last about 8 weeks.
