Do bugs love to bite you? Want to protect your family from the latest disease carried by mosquitoes?
Look no further than the Bugaurd Photocatalyst Fly & Mosquito Trap
With mosquitos carrying new diseases every single year, you want to protect yourself from getting bitten by them or other insects that may frequest your home or outdoor setting. Mosquitoes (even in the dark) can easily locate where a person is by sensing carbon dioxide and temperature that he/she is emitting. They also react with extreme sensitivity to ultraviolet (UV) rays. Using these habits of mosquitoes, the photocatalyst mosquito trap can act as a decoy to capture mosquitos in a bright indoor setting, or a dark outdoor setting.
The trap is engineered to protect in 3 ways:
1.) A UV fluorescent bulb will generate a warm light that attracts insects. 2.) Ti02 (Titanium Dioxide) coats the surface, which emits similar amounts of CO2 ( Carbon Dioxide ) as humans. That's irresistible to mosquitos. 3.) A powerful, yet ultra quiet vacuum fan sucks insects into the retaining cage where they dehydrate and die.
A twist to close feature will ensure that any insects that are still alive in the retaining cage will not be able to escape when you turn the trap off.

My wife has allergic reactions to mosquito bites, so we look for ways to steer clear of those little pest, but living by a swamp its almost impossible. Walking the ten feet from the car to the house and you have two or three on you, then you let three more in when you open the door. I have to say this is a very nifty little tool to have around the house. within a week it has dropped the fruit flies in the house to almost none, and I stuck it outside to just test how it would do on the back porch. over night it caught maybe 30 mosquitoes, 10 moths, and a random hoard of other flying insects. I have to give the Bugaurd a two thumbs why up! and a five star review to match! thanks for inventing! We'll be purchasing another soon. so to have one indoor and one on the back porch. (We'd be bit without it!)
As others have noted, this traps as many harmless and beneficial moths as mosquitoes, but we modified with some wide netting to prevent the moths from getting in. I recommend you do this as well.
The unit worked well for a little over a week and caught a lot of mosquitoes, and then the fan burned out. I looked online and found that bug carcasses could clog the fan in similar units, so we checked, but our fan was clean -- just not running. The fan is what traps and kills the mosquitoes, so without a fan the unit was just a nightlight. I returned for refund.
Concept good, production poor.
Seems to work fine for mosquitoes but does not attract flies.
