First, some background on why I bought it. I live overseas, but buy a lot of my stuff from Amazon. In my previous apartment, I had a minor problem with fruit flies. I read up on the Internet, and learned how to make a fruit fly trap. Basically, you put apple cider vinegar PLUS a couple of drops of dish detergent into a bowl. You cover the bowl with plastic. In the plastic cover, you make a small hole (about the size of a dime). In my old apartment, found this fruit fly trap to be pretty effective. It wasn't fast...but it did keep the population of fruit flies down.
In my NEW apartment, I have a lot more fruit flies, though. I set out multiple homemade fly traps (as above) and they were killing fruit flies. But the fruit flies were still breeding a lot faster than they were being trapped.
I read reviews on this inaday trap and I could not find anybody mention using it for fruit flies, which worried me. I read about the mesh screen in the trap area, and wondered if the mesh was SMALL enough to hold fruit flies. I worried that if I bought this thing...that the fruit flies would just escape it through the holes in the mesh screen...
But I decided to take a chance on buying it anyway, as the fruit flies were really annoying me. I had to try SOMETHING.
This thing has a worldwide voltage power adapter, which is a good thing. You can plug it in just about anywhere, as long as you have the right plug adapter to make it fit your wall outlet. But when I first plugged it in, nothing happened. I hit the power switch many times. Nothing. I got it to turn on once but after I unplugged it to move it...I could not get it to turn on again. Then I had a real problem. I could send it back for refund or exchange. But, because I'm living overseas....that might take MONTHS.
So I took it apart to examine it. I found there is a little spring on top of a circuit card that acts as the electrical power switch. That spring was weak. Thus, it wasn't really contacting the plastic power switch on the top of the unit. I was able to stretch the spring (carefully) with my fingers. On reassembling the unit, I found it worked FINE! Or at least, I finally got it to a condition where I could try to use it. HaHa.
I'd read elsewhere that this trap was more effective if you put a little hand lotion or some other smelly substance in the trap area to help attract bugs. So, made a teeny tiny fruit fly trap with about a half ounce of apple cider vinegar and a couple of drops of dish detergent in a small plastic cup (about 3/4" tall). I set THAT in the trap area of this inatrap thing.
I had a tough time figuring out where to "deploy" the trap, as I don't really have a handy space that is 2 feet or more off of the floor. Not near an electrical outlet in an area with lots of fruit fly activity. I finally pulled out a large cardboard box about two fee tall and set it on top of the cardboard box near the doorway to my spare bedroom. I chose this location as it is 2 feet of the ground (per the instructions) and there is a unused electrical outlet nearby and (most important probably) it is direct line of sight from the areas where the fruit flies hang out.
I set it on orange mode (always on) and walked away. After ONE NIGHT, I pulled the trap part drawer out to check it. I found many dozens of dead fruit flies!!! It was actually kind of a horrifying sight to see all those dead fruit flies in that small drawer. The interesting thing is, only about half of the dead fruit flies were in the vinegar. That tells me that the inatrap thing is a very effective fruit fly killer!!! I'm sure the smell of the apple cider vinegar helps, but this thing is a VERY effective fruit fly killer!!!
I've seen some other similar traps selling for a lot less money. I almost bought one of those, as this inatrap thing is kind of expensive. But I really do feel I got my money's worth out of this purchase. It probably killed at least 90% of the fruit flies in my apartment IN THE FIRST NIGHT OF OPERATION. Amazing...
And a LOT more effective than the hand-made fruit fly traps I was using before. I would purchase again, and I would recommend to others!
I can't give it five stars because it is expensive...and arrived in non-operable condition. It was well packed with no visible damage at all, so I do believe the problem I had was a 'factory defect'.
Still, if this thing cost less money AND arrived in working condition...I'd be tempted to rate it six stars. IT WORKS!!!
Update - I am about to buy my third Inaday. I bought the first on in June 2012. I have pavers on my patio and my kids kept knocking it off the table so I bought a backup in February 2013 which I kept in the house. The one in the house gets moved around to any room that has a mosquito in it. I finally threw out the one on the patio and moved the inside one to the patio and now I really miss my inside one.
I cannot understand how people say this thing doesn't work. Sitting outside, I can hear the bugs being sucked into the trap. Moths are very lound as they get chopped up by the fan. If the power goes out, you have to turn the unit back on and I am very aware when it isn't on because the mosquitos love me. We run ours 24x7 because where there are humans present, we give off more CO2 than the Inaday so it seems that the mosquitos will find us even when the unit is on. If you run it when you are not near it, they all go for the lamp and by the time I go out, the bugs are trapped.
My only complaint about this unit is that I am a little lazy about emptying it. The ants then find the lamp and start dragging the bug carcasses out through the screen. I would prefer that they had a solid plastic drawer rather than the screen. It's pretty disgusting. The other option would be for them to make a hanging model.
ALSO. It is a great night light.. it uses little power and it is quiet. You press the button one for a timed trapping session and twice, perhaps a half day im guessing? .. or you can press twice till the button glows red, for a permanent session.... i just leave it on all the time now.. i dump its tray once a week out of interest.. but it would work for a month easily before needing be dumped. It gets all forms of flys: Blue bottles, mozzies, big ol daddy long legs, other little guys.. like fruit flys. I have had it for about 4 months now.. and am very pleased. I recommend it. It also looks like a huge magic mushroom.. or some fancy modern art form. Its about a foot tall. Seems to be made well.. i hope it lasts for years.
