    I purchased your model DT2000XL this spring and it catches many insects in a short time.

    My first question is: most of the catch ,by volume, is moths. Am I destroying beneficial pollinators along with the mosquitoes I wished to eliminate? It is too early for the Gypsy moth adults in my part of the country (Northern Michigan). Has this concern ever been raised within your organization ?

    Second question: I haven’t been able to find any documented studies indicating that titanium oxide produces carbon dioxide in the presence of ultraviolet light. I taught physical science for years so have more than a passing acquaintance with chemistry. Could you provide some insight into this process ?

      Thank you for purchasing a Dynatrap Insect Trap! Yes, the DynaTrap catches moths in addition to mosquitos. Keep in mind that the average mosquito weights about 2.5mg, compared to moths, many of which weigh over 100mg! So, at first glance it will appear that you are catching more moths than mosquitos. In general, the DynaTrap does not attract “beneficial” insects, such as honey bees, dragonflies, and lady bugs. In fact, by using your DynaTrap 24/7 you are helping honey bees – there are a number of moth species that attack the products of honey bees.

      The process we use to create CO2 requires that “organic matter” pass between the UV light and TiO2 to generate the CO2. The DynaTrap fan facilitates drawing organic matter from the surrounding air into and through the TiO2/UV exposure area.

      I hope this answers your questions!

      Keep trappin’

    I hook my DynaTrap up last night for the first time. This morning the collection tray was full it is unbelievable how many creepy crawlers we have in our back yard. My wife got it as a fathers day gift.

    I will admit it works great! It’s just not as fun to watch as a bug zapper. Can you put a zapper in the collection tray and add a little excitement to eliminating bugs? Call this version DynaTrap and zap.

      Happy belated Father’s Day Bobby! So happy you are enjoying your Dynatrap Insect Trap. Here’s a link to our Dynazap Extendable Insect Zapper. This is a lot of fun both outdoors and indoors!

    I’ve had my trap set up for most of the summer, but I have lost the directions on how to take it apart. could you please tell me how to do this, for future reference? I have the 1 acre size.

  • William Hope says:

    I paid your $35.00 fee and sent my Dynatrap in for repairl. I have not gotten it back nor heard from Dynatrap since. When will I get my repaired product back?

  • Tammy says:

    I raise honey bee hives 30 feet away from my house. Will they be attracted to the light in the dynatrap, because they are attracted to the flood lights on my house and die.

  • Misty says:

    Are moths collected? They have taken over!

    • Matthew Timmons says:

      Hello Misty!

      Yes, the Dynatraps will collect moths, in fact, they are very effective, and often people say they are surprised at how many moths theirs has captured!



    • Matthew Timmons says:

      Hello! DynaTraps only trap harmful insects. In that family, they will attract and kill wasps and hornets, but not pollinating insects like honey bees or butterflies!

  • Andrew says:

    How can you say the Dynatrap “only” collects harmful insects? As if it knows the difference between which type of insect is about to fly in.

    • Andrew says:

      Example: How does a Honey Bee know to stay away, but a wasp will fly right in?

    • Matthew Timmons says:

      Hello Andrew!

      The basis for what get caught lies in the reaction of the bugs themselves! There are a few elements that go into it, such as Honey Bees don’t fly at night like wasps, mosquitoes, and similar biting/insects. Also, these biting insects are draw to CO2. Honey bees are not.

      I hope that helps!

  • Annette says:

    I have had my dynatrap for 2 yrs. and it has never trapped a wasp or hornet and I have plenty of both. What is wrong.

    • Matthew Timmons says:

      Hey Annette!

      Great question, please submit the same question to our contact us, so our customer service can reach out to you!

  • Tracey M. says:

    I have a decent bug issue in my backyard. Spiders are feasting well & getting big. I can’t enjoy my backyard that much because I’m arachnophobic. Someone suggested getting a dynatrap to help, but I can’t find anywhere if this will attract & kill the spiders too. Please advise. Thank you
