All the great Dynatrap features enhanced with the natural attracting power of H2O. This insect trap is engineered for 4-way protection against mosquitoes and other flying insects. First, a UV fluorescent bulb generates a warm light, attracting insects. Then a second lure, an exclusive Ti02 titanium dioxide-coated surface, produces CO2 that's irresistible to mosquitoes. A third lure, water that is gathered in the water tray, attracts egg-laying insects. Fourth, a powerful yet whisper-quiet vacuum fan sucks insects into the retaining cage where they dehydrate and die. Convenient pole stand allows you to place the trap where you need it most.

Bought this model (DynaTrap DT1200) about 3 weeks ago (from a local DIY store), read up on things like the effects of wind direction and placement (all vendors of such products have guidelines online - read them!). We've been collecting a solid cooking tablespoon of mosquitoes per week and a fluffy 1/4 cup of misc moths, gnats, and others. Plus walking dogs is no longer a constant slapping-race. It is pleasant.
It seems most of these products from all vendors have about 1/2 reviews saying it's great and 1/2 that it sucks. Placement is probably important & they are NOT magic. I picked this model due to the low cost and not having to buy consumables. Lots of the 'other' products require up to $400 worth of propane and chemical scents per season, so I figured spending this low amount was a better risk than $500 plus add-ons. My risk paid off.
(July-26 add-on comments - Since the backyard is now so nice, we bought a second one for our front yard since we do gardening there and mosquitoes/some other biting bug was feeding on me; forcing me indoors as the sun set. It collects about 1/2 the bugs as the back yard, but my garden work can now extend until dark. Note; I see in some of these reviews that people think you plug this in 30 seconds before your picnic and expect it to do anything. Not so - both of my unit collected absolutely NOTHING in the first 12-15 hours! It takes some days of constant running to start to collect the bulk of the bugs.)
(Aug-03 add-on comments - used my Kilowatt meter. These burn about 15-watts 24-hours a day, so about 10kwh of power a month. If you pay $0.08/kwh, that about a buck of power a month.)
(Sep 2014 comments: one of my 2 units failed in July 2014. When I pulled it out, water poured from the top. Seems 1 of 4 rubber plugs on the top got lost, and somehow water entered the top & killed the unit. The 2nd unit (down in the garden is doing fine, sucking in bugs.) I bought one of the cheaper hanging units for $99 at the local Menards, and I was able to remove the old fried head, and mount this one on the old stand. The new one is different, with flaps to keep the bugs inside during a cleaning. Personally, I think the new design is silly. Sure a few bugs escapes when I cleaned before, but now with the flaps cleaning is harder. So one step ahead, one step back. Still the two units keep sucking in the bugs.)
I like most was skeptical because of all the less than 5 star reviews. Let me tell you -it worked great for us!
We live in Daytona Beach, FL so there is no need to tell you how many mosquitoes and pests we get all year round. We followed the directions to the tee. You have to let the unit run 24/7. It's not a bug zapper you turn on when you have company.
It also says its weather proof so you can leave it out in the open and running in the rain. It rained for about 3 days pretty good here, and the little unit kept chugging. We also placed near our AC unit because the only sitting water on our property is where the drip pipe is for the AC.
The pictures you see are after 1 week. It got tons of mosquitoes. The water tray got even more beatles but the lizard make quick work of eating anything in there so it fills up and unfills on its own heh.
It's hard to see how many mosquitoes it retained because they dry out and turn to dust when other bugs get in there flapping their wings. We notice a big difference sitting out there. I have a TV out there and was watching the NBA finals bug free and bite free. after a few days.
Definitely pick this item up and follow the instructions - it worked great for us in mosquitoes central, swamp water, 95 degree, Florida. I can't wait to see how it is in 6 weeks!
2 Week Update:
We had my daughters 3rd birthday party this weekend. We were outside until 11pm. 20 people alot of people breathing out Co2. Not 1 person got bit. I usually get my ankles tore up but as i said not 1 bite. The out door tv barley had 1 or 2 bugs buzzing around it all night and the rope lights didn't have any.
This is 100% buy - daytona beach FL, our house has a lake directly across the street - even our neighbors reported less bugs on their front porch at night.
6 week update:
Still works like a charm. We live on less than 1/4 acre (we bought the 1/2 acre model) and we had a big July 3rd party - no one got bit, in the front yard or back yard (where the unit is) Also my neighbors say they aren't getting bit either the last few weeks on their front porch.
We laid out on the grass all evening from 7pm-10pm watching the backyard fireworks from our neighbors on the 4th. My wife, myself and my 2 daughters and 2 neighbors. Not 1 bite.
We let this thing running 24 hours a day / 7 days a week / rain or shine. Still chugging along and no mosquitoes.
