This insect trap is engineered for 3-way protection. First, a UV fluorescent bulb generates a warm light, attracting insects. Then a second lure, an exclusive Ti02 titanium dioxide-coated surface, produces CO2 (the same gas we emit when we exhale) that’s irresistible to mosquitoes. Third, a powerful, yet whisper-quiet vacuum fan sucks insects into the retaining cage where they dehydrate and die. Light Bulb: 41050 Replacement Light Bulb Owner’s Manual: Download

    The Dynatrap DT 1050 is attractive for a bug light, appears to be sturdy and well made. It comes with a 10 foot electrical cord and two feet of chain for hanging. The UV lamp and fan consume 15 watts of power, or about 11 kWh per month. I estimate the cost of electricity at $1.50 per month for my location. After 19 days of use, I emptied the container onto a piece of paper (see photo). I saw all kinds of flying insects, including lots of gnats, some moths, beetles, flying ants, flies, a few lady bugs, any many bugs I couldn’t identify. I can’t honestly say that I found any mosquitoes, but they may have been eaten by the larger insects. That being said, I haven’t noticed any mosquitoes outside. It is the end of June in the South and it’s been raining enough to normally be plagued by these pests. My conclusion is that the Dynatrap is working.

    I placed this under our pine tree in the backyard. Followed instructions regarding height and minimum distance from porch/ hammock area. It has now been three weeks and the mosquitos are under control. Only one bite so far and that was when I was near the Dyna trap checking for operation. We always have just enough of a mosquito population to be very annoying during summer days and evenings outside activities. Other bugs seem to have also dramatically decreased. So far very satisfied with purchase.

    I used this product over the summer and I couldn’t believe how many bugs it caught. I would recommend getting this trap out early to keep up with the bugs. Although we noticed a major decrease in the number of mosquitos, it wasn’t enjoyable to be outside in the evenings. I am going to get another trap and set them out early in hopes of getting ahead of the population. If you combine this trap with a lawn treatment, you should be able to enjoy your afternoons and evenings outside.

    I love this item, it sure does attract a lot of diff bugs and plenty of them too!

  5. Alec

    We have used two half- acre traps in the back yard for the last two years. Run continuously through the summer. The traps caught mainly mosquitoes and grub moths with various other insects also caught. We placed one in a shady, vegetated area behind the house, below the deck and the second near our garden containers on the deck. Both traps catch insects. We were a bit concerned that the trap near the deck would attract insects to the deck, but it doesn’t seem to be a problem. Definitely seem to have fewer insects on the deck. Highly recommended!

  6. Emily

    I’m so impressed with DynaTrap products. This trap has a long cord, so I can place it in an unobtrusive area. I love that it comes with chain so you can hang it on a hook, as I have done. It’s a sturdy and nice looking piece of equipment, so it doesn’t detract from your yard. I cannot believe how much our bug population has diminished. We have issues with mosquitos and stink bugs, and I couldn’t believe how many this trap caught in just two days. I highly recommend this trap to anyone who wants to enjoy their yard without worrying about bugs or chemicals!

  7. Rebecca Horbal

    This is a great product! It’s been up for about two weeks and I have already noticed a difference while out and working in the yard. It’s quiet and very attractive in appearance.

  8. camillian

    We have a major problem with mosquitos in our yard, and this has dramatically cut down the issue in just a few days! I’m really excited to see how things will be in the next few weeks!

  9. Becca

    This is an awesome product. We live in the country and it is horrible when the mosquitoes hatch. We can’t even enjoy sitting outside without being bit up like crazy. We hung the 1/2 acre DynaTrap up and we have seen an incredible difference. I can actually sit outside for longer than 5 minutes! It’s amazing! Not only does this product collect mosquitoes, but we have found hornets, wasps, and flies in it as well. I can’t say enough good things about it! Plus having kids and pets and knowing they are safe with these around is a HUGE deal!

  10. Sara J

    This product has been amazing in our backyard! We have only had it out for a few days and it has already trapped so many mosquitoes! We live by a large body of water and we have a huge problem with mosquitoes. We are so excited to be able to spend time outside without getting eaten all day.

  11. Lyndsey Spenard

    We used this for 24hours, and had zero bug bites for our BBQ the next day! Love it!

  12. Bobbie Faulkner

    I placed this product on the front porch. I’ve had it on continuously for 2 weeks and I love it! We could not sit out on the porch before without getting eaten up by mosquitoes. Now we have no problem sitting outside! No more mosquitoes!! We love this product!

  13. Dawn Waddington

    I am totally sold on DynaTrap products. We have one that covers an acre and this new one that covers 1/4 acre and couldn’t be happier. They are so convenient and easy to use, there is no mess, there is no zapping noise, they work 24/7 and the only thing we have to do is empty the trap once a week. We recently moved out to a two acre property and give the dead bugs to our neighbor that feeds them to the chickens. They are very happy! haha DynaTrap doesn’t use any pesticides AT ALL so this is totally family friendly. This machine is really a great product to help keep the bugs away from your outdoor life and you don’t have to fuss with it. I have recommended it to friends and they have purchased them too, really you won’t be disappointed.

  14. Melanie

    I have been using this product for about a week. So far it appears to be doing exactly what it is supposed to do. It is sturdy and weather proof. It is easy to clean. I have noticed a decrease in bug bites since using this product.

  15. Sara

    We have had some good results with our DynaTrap trapping some of the bad bugs, and our bees are all safe & sound! I posted a photo on Facebook of my results after just a few days! It is quiet and looks good too. You hardly notice it is there!

  16. Rhonda Molash

    This product works very well. In the first week that we had it hanging outdoors we had to empty the product 2 times. I was surprised how many bugs it attracted and how many it trap. I really enjoyed how it it was to set-up and that it has no pesticides and is odor free. It is a product that I would highly recommend.

  17. Sarah M.

    We love the Dynatrap outdoor insect trap! We placed it under a tree and followed the directions and their are tons of bugs caught in the trap already! It’s only been up for a few days so I’m hoping that it continues to work!

  18. Elizabeth Oswald

    This was AWESOME! We took this with us on our big annual camping trip with friends. It’s a bunch of us. I think 10 families total. We always gather around a big area and hang out. This year, we plugged this into one of the trailers and set it up and sure enough, it kept them pesky pests away! I really can’t wait to keep it set up outside when we are just hanging out having fun!

  19. Debbie

    This cute little bug trap has been doing exactly as promised I’m our yard. I’m the one that always gets bit and I’m not scared to sit outside at dusk now and enjoy the cooler temperatures. It’s quiet, easy to maintain and looks good! I kinda wish it was cordless to place in other locations, but it’s really nice to not have to worry about changing batteries, so I guess it’s worth it!

  20. Kristin Rosenberg

    I like that this 1/2 acre insect trap uses UV light instead of the typical buzzing and zapping a person associates with a bug trap. It’s super quiet and does have a decent foot cord, I just wish there was some kind of solar energy aspect of it so it wasn’t running on electric all the time. Even so, it does work really well, so I can’t really complain. We were having problems with beetles and mosquitoes, both of which are problems of the past.

  21. Allyson Carter

    This DynaTrap unit miss perfect for camping and spending time around a campfire with family and friends. I live in a very wooded area, and find that the mosquitoes and biting flies are out of control. This unit covers my children’s entire play scape area and around our fire pit, making for a bug free time. The unit is easy to empty, and it is impressively quiet and stylish looking.

  22. Cristen H.

    I’ve been using this for about three weeks and the amount of bugs it has collected is astounding! I was a little disappointed that it hadn’t caught as many mosquitoes as I expected. BUT, it has caught a ton of lawn moths, which in caterpillar form are destructive to your lawn. I’m very happy with product, overall. It’s quiet. It’s easy to set up and clean. Even the blue glow is not obnoxious.

  23. Melanie Kreher

    This thing is amazing! We were spending close to $300 to have our yard fogged because the mosquitoes were so bad from our wet weather creek, pool, and many shade trees… and we were still swarmed with mosquitoes. We hung this close to our back deck under a shady tree area. This bottom trap was full and we have not been pestered by mosquitoes (finally!)!!! This works better than having our yard fogged and I love that it’s not exposing our kids and pets to all the chemicals. Thank you Dynatrap!

  24. Shauna

    I am loving this product so far. I love that I can keep it plugged in 24/7 and if the kids get near it, I don’t have to worry as much since there is no zapping involved. It has a quiet fan and an easy to empty canister.
    I have a smaller one in my garage right now and while it is amazing to see the number of flying insects caught by it, I think it works best when it is the only light around. Example: it doesn’t keep bugs out of the garage while I’m in there, but everything that comes in gets trapped overnight with the lights off. It is a great tool to have out all summer though!

  25. Jenna M.

    The DynaTrap 1/2 acre has held up well for the past several weeks. It withstood all our intense summer storms and continues to collect various insects – including mosquitos. No-see-ums and Asian beetles are a big problem in our area (along with those pesky mosquitos). The trap was successful in trapping those too. Love how DynaTrap is easy to use, has no zapping (not allowed in our neighborhood), quiet, and most importantly doesn’t include pesticides. The price is a little steep, especially when going to need several to more effectively cover our large area. With said, I would recommend DynaTrap to safely help diminish mosquitos and other unwanted insects for the family.

  26. Laressa Nordgren

    Lots of bugs have been caught by this! I was given the opportunity to try some of these products and share some others with a Tryazon event. I let a couple that just moved to a farm try this one. They have been super impressed and say that they have noticed a very big drop in the amount of bugs around their farm. After 24 hours they had a lot of bugs then after a couple days the whole thing was almost full. It has been doing a great job for them!

  27. Susie

    I placed this on my front porch in an attempt to be able to sit outside after dark. It really works!! After 24 hours, there were plenty of dead bugs in the bottom and far fewer pests biting me! I love it. It’s quiet so there is no zapping like other similar devices.

  28. Joseph Huff

    I received this unit as a Christmas gift this year. It has been warm here in the south this winter and we still have Mosquitoes our. I hug this unit under our open carport and was amazed at the amount of mosquitoes and other flying insects in the cage just after one night of use. Will be purchasing a second unit to use In The horse barn. I highly recommend this unit it works
