Spring starts on Monday and that means longer days and warmer nights as we move into summer. But summer weather comes with an unwelcome guest: bugs. The humid nights make it virtually impossible to keep critters – especially flying ones – out of your home. While you can have a fly swatter nearby at all times, it takes a lot of work. Also, it doesn’t always work with mosquitoes and mosquitoes. That’s where an indoor bug trap comes in handy. These devices help you catch insects out of the air, without you having to do anything. Insect averse? Get excited because for today only, you can pick up the Katchy Indoor Insect Trap for $28 on Amazon with code 05 TOPDEAL, exclusive to Yahoo readers, but offer is only valid until midnight!
To use the trap, find a spot where you tend to attract gnats, gnats or other flying insects, such as near a fruit bowl or garbage can. Plug in Katchy, turn it on and let it run. The device uses ultraviolet light to attract the bugs, a fan sucks them in and a sticky glue board traps them forever. The whole thing looks a lot better than hanging glue traps from the ceiling.
The machine is most effective when it runs for three days. After that, remove the glue trap and place a new one.
People rave about how well it works. “I bought this product for my parents as they have issues with mosquitoes and fruit flies and the amount of bugs this product catches is INSANE. It’s so impressive I had to buy one for myself and my mom bought another one for her horse trailer ,” wrote one five-star fan. “Modern design so it’s not an eyesore. The bugs aren’t electrocuted so there’s no burning smell like other bug catchers. I would recommend everyone to buy this.”
Another fan calls it “an amazing little machine,” adding that it grows orchids “and occasionally I get a bunch of fungus gnats. A week of running this machine and most are gone. It’s silent, has a manual or automatic (only on the dark mode) so it can meet your needs.”
A fellow user calls Katchy “AWESOME. I have tons of plants in my house and woke up one day to clouds of fruit flies everywhere. You couldn’t eat or make food without them swarming you, they were so bad.” It was right around Christmas and we had friends coming so I got them and hoped they worked as well as the reviews and thank goodness they do I had a relatively pest free holiday and there are only a few casual stragglers these days.
Just a reminder: bug season isn’t ending anytime soon. So if you hate having mosquitoes, mosquitoes and other flying insects in your house, get a Katchy!
