Excellent...going to order another...
It works for me but some knats dont even pay the UV light any mind. I have to move it around to get knats in specific areas but it do work 90% of the time
Excellent, great product
I did a little research and found a study done at University of Florida that found mosquitoes are attracted to UV light, so I decided to give this thing a try. The instructions say to set it up in a small, dark room with no people or pets but, being one to not follow directions, I first set it up in a large, well lit room with several people and I was pleased to find, after about 2 hours, 1 mosquito and 3 noseeums. I then moved it to my bedroom and left it on all night. In the morning there was another mosquito and 2 more noseeums. Most importantly I wasn't tormented by that pesky mosquito! I was under the impression that there was nothing to do about noseeums, they couldn't be caught or trapped. WRONG!!! The Katchy does get 'em! I'm immensely satisfied and highly recommend this trap. It's on my gift list for family members in Florida
This is hands-down one of the most effective ways of getting rid of flying pests I’ve ever used! When I bought it almost a year ago, I would let it run pretty much all day long on the lower “silent” mode and it caught all kinds of bugs. Now, I say “silent” in air quotes because you’ll still hear an electric hum but it almost reminds me of a white noise machine - you get used to it after a while. But don’t expect it to be truly silent. There’s also a pleasant blue glow from the machine on that setting, which acted as a sort of night light when I’d have it on as I slept. The “strong” mode is a much louder hum, but it isn’t annoying or too loud. It’s accompanied by a purple glow. I packed this away during the colder months and thought for sure it would be a dud when I got it out of storage this year, but I was happily wrong and it still works just as good as it did when it was brand new! Both modes are effective at attracting and trapping bugs, but the strong mode is definitely a winner when you need to rope in a bigger “catch” (I’m talking about those annoying houseflies and mosquitos). The machine is easy to clean, and the refill boards are super easy to switch out. I can’t recommend this enough!
