Katchy Indoor Insect Trap 101: Automatic Vs. Manual
Tiny bugs may benefit the ecosystem, but I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that they can be a huge pain. How are we supposed to enjoy life when 400 mosquitos and gnats get all up in our business the second we open a window? I don’t need mosquitos or gnats in my house, and I’m sure you don’t either. That’s why the Katchy Indoor Insect Trap is so perfect! This little device will take your house from a high-traffic bug hub to a no-fly zone in no time. It’s quiet, odorless, and most importantly, gets those creepy-crawlies out of your face.
Katchy has two different variations of fly and gnat traps - Automatic and Manual. If you’re lost on which one to buy, don’t worry! Each one has benefits that may sway your opinion, so listen in before you make that purchase!
How Does Katchy Work?
The Katchy insect trap is the answer to anyone’s pesky pest problem!
It’s a portable, non-chemical, electronic flying insect trap that is perfect for any indoor space. By using a UV light, this grade-A gnat killer attracts bugs into the fan, pulling anything that comes too close down into the trap. At the bottom of the trap is a sticky fly trap that keeps the insects in place, killing them over time - no chemicals needed!
Does Katchy Work for Mosquitos and Fruit Flies?
Yep! In fact, both the manual and automatic versions of the Katchy indoor insect trap are built to combat fruit fly infestations, tiny flies, larger flies, moths, mosquitos, gnats, and any other small bugs that get near it!
How Do You Use a Katchy Bug Trap?
As most things in life are, the beauty of this indoor fly trap is in its simplicity. It’s so simple, in fact, that it takes only 3 steps to use:
1. Place the trap somewhere dry and close to a power source.
- It’s powered by a standard plug, but you can also use a USB port! Be sure to place this electric fly catcher wherever you’re seeing the most activity.
2. Insert your glue trap at the bottom of the device.
- Both our manual and automatic reusable fly traps come with 4 Katchy glue boards, but if you’ve run out, you can restock here!
3. Plug in and turn on your Katchy indoor Insect trap!
- That’s it! Easy, right? Be sure to turn this electric fly trap on somewhere dark, as the UV light is what attracts gnats and other bugs and works best with no competing light sources.
What is the Katchy Automatic Mode?
Time to get into the nitty-gritty. What exactly is an ‘automatic fly trap’? Well, to put it simply, it automatically turns on every night, so you don’t forget! Imagine a life where your gnat infestation or mosquito problem is being taken care of without you even having to think about it. That’s what it’s like to have one of these amazing traps!
So, now we know what the automatic version does, but how else is it different from our manual indoor fly trap? Here’s a guide to help you make your final decision:
Manual Vs. Automatic Differences:
Must be turned on manually
Automatically activates in the dark
Includes ‘standard’ and ‘silent’ modes
Automatically activates every night without reminders
2 speed settings (low to standard)
1 speed setting
- Both include 4 Katchy glue boards.
- Both use chemical-free UV lighting and insect sticky traps.
- Both are perfect for taking care of small bugs like flies, gnats, moths, and fruit flies in your house.
Does Katchy Work During the Day?
Not typically. You can use them during the day if you’d like, but the UV light in our Katchy indoor insect trap works best in the dark with no other competing light source. If you want to use them during the day, try to cover up the windows or turn off the lights in that room. You still may find it doesn’t work quite as well, however.
Can Katchy Be Used Outdoors?
No. Our traps are a great way to get rid of gnats and other small bugs in your home, but won’t be effective outdoors. They have a general effective coverage area of about 320 square feet.
Whether you end up choosing the manual or automatic indoor fly traps, you’ll see results in no time. If you’re looking for restocks or need some more traps for larger rooms, check out our website and get ready for a bug-free life!
