Safe, quiet mosquito solution

The DynaTrap stops mosquitoes and flies without pesticides or other chemicals, and it works quietly—you won’t have to listen to the constant buzz of a zapper. A UV light shines on titanium, causing a reaction in which carbon dioxide is emitted. The carbon dioxide lures pests into the basket, where a small fan keeps them pinned inside. When the DynaTrap has collected a pile of insects, you twist off the basket and empty it in the trash. Models come in a range of sizes that cover a quarter acre ($70) up to 1 acre ($200). Learn more at dynatrap.com.

COMMUNITY IMPACT

In 2016, when the harmful Zika virus was on everyone’s mind, DynaTrap and the city of Miami, Florida, distributed 100 of DynaTrap’s 1-acre mosquito traps to “Zika Zones” around the city. The donation reduced the population of Zika-infected mosquitoes without chemicals, keeping beneficial insects like honeybees, and the community, safe.
