Mosquitoes and other biting insects are a pretty rude bunch. They show up at your cookouts uninvited and proceed to make a feast out of every human in sight. That typically leaves you with a few choices come summertime, all of them unpleasant: You can hide indoors, get eaten alive or slather yourself in greasy insecticide.
But we're here to tell you there's a brilliant new option: Get yourself a mean bug-trapping machine that kills up to 3,000 biting insects per week. That would be the life-changing DynaTrap XL LED Mosquito and Insect Trap. Here's some more great news: Right now, you can get it for nearly 50 percent off at QVC.
Pests can’t resist the DynaTrap. They’re drawn to it like a moth to the flame...or, rather, a moth to the UV light. And not just moths, either. The device attracts gnats, flies, no-see-ums, hornets, wasps, stink bugs and more backyard offenders — it’s been independently tested for each. And as we mentioned, it’s also your best line of defense against the biggest menace of all: the dastardly mosquito.
Once the insects are lured in by the UV light, they’re tempted further by the carbon dioxide emitted by a warmed titanium dioxide plate underneath. That CO2 mimics human breath so it baits those nuisances...pretty crafty, huh? Once they’re close enough, a powerful fan sucks them in, and they're trapped — for good. It can hold a lot of ‘em too, so you won’t have to empty the trap constantly.
The DynaTrap XL LED Mosquito and Insect Trap comes in five colors (Copper, Bronze, Brick Red, Tungsten and Green) and three sizes. The large version can handle up to one acre. The medium version takes on half an acre. And even smaller, the small version is for one-fourth of an acre.

Eliminating the itchy, annoying bites you endure each summer and eradicating up to 3,000 biting bugs from your personal space should be incentive enough to finally end the madness with this formidable insect trap. After all, those mosquitoes and biting bugs don’t venture far from home: they always stay within 300 feet, just breeding away. Killing them en masse helps control the population; the fewer bugs, the less they reproduce. Simple math.
The DynaTrap XL Mosquito and Insect Trap operates quietly and effectively — no cringing every time you hear a buzz, and no unpleasant burning smells. If you leave it on 24/7 this summer, you’ll almost forget biting insects even exist. If you'd like a more comprehensive look at this wondrous appliance, check out QVC's demonstration video here.
