KATCHY Electric Insect Trap

The KATCHY Electric Insect Trap combines two mechanics together almost flawlessly: UV light attraction and a wind vacuum for sucking up bugs. If you need an indoor bug trap, this is definitely the way to go as there’s never been one more efficient than this. This is very good at catching and trapping moths, (fruit) flies, and gnats. The glue boards are cheap and easy to replace. With this product doing so many things right, it’s hard to justify trying any other indoor method, especially one that takes more effort and time (and possibly more money). After taking a look at this review, you will definitely feel the same! I mentioned this product in my Best Fly Killer Guide.

How It Works

The KATCHY Electric Insect Trap uses a UV light that is at the perfect point in the color spectrum where flies, moths, and gnats are attracted the most. This pulls them towards the light at their own volition, and finally using a fan underneath the light, sucks them up completely and down onto a sticky pad. The UV light is a stylish LED. Extra glue pads are easily orderable. This is overall a great product and deserves a buy, especially when dealing with fruit flies.

Using The Product

The product seems to do extremely well when put against fruit flies. The fan also dries out the bugs if they do not hit the glue board, as the fan is incredibly strong. There are two modes: silent mode and strong mode. Both are not much louder than a whisper. Silent mode has the fan run weaker but quieter and strong mode has the fan run at full capacity, a little louder with more power. The carcasses of the dead insects are stored in the cartridge at the bottom part of the device. Parts are detachable for easy clean-up. It is important that the user should clean the device after every use since dead insects may produce an unwanted odor when left over a period of time.

This product is fairly easy to use. All you need is an electric outlet and your insect trap will work instantaneously. There is no need for assembly whatsoever. The device is ready to use out of the box. Some users complained about the length of the electric cord that comes with the device but you can always purchase an extension cord if you need more length. What makes the KATHCHY Electric Insect Trap stand out from the rest is its effectiveness against pest control. It can kill almost any type of insect pests and it is proven to be very effective against flies and mosquitoes.

At least, you can know the difference between two different types of fly killers. Disposable tape traps, for example, can attract and kill flies that go near your premises.

They basically work just like an electric fly trap except they are disposable and sometimes inconvenient to use. You will have to change the sheets every time they are full of fly carcasses. If you have the budget for a good fly killer, you should definitely go for electric fly traps. They are user-friendly and definitely very safe to use. Your plants and pets will are safe during the process since this product only targets insect pests.
