Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are the most dangerous animal on earth, transmitting diseases such as Malaria, Zika, West Nile, and Dengue Fever.

The best way to trap mosquitoes is to understand how they find their prey. Actually, only female mosquitoes bite, because they need the protein in your blood to supply nutrients to their reproductive process. Therefore, mosquitoes are specially equipped to sense humans and animals through a variety of senses. First, they are attracted to the warmth of body heat, which is mimicked by the DynaTrap. Second, they can sense CO2 (which we exhale) from up to 100 ft. away, which DynaTrap also produces. Third, they are drawn to certain wavelengths of UV light, which the DynaTrap emits. All together, mosquitoes find DynaTrap irresistible. Mosquitoes do not travel long distances, often staying within an acre area. Therefore, with every mosquito caught with a DynaTrap prevents hundreds or thousands of additional mosquito eggs from being laid on your property–effectively breaking the mosquito life cycle.

Moths

The caterpillars that become moths can be devastating to your garden.

While moths themselves do not actually do much damage to plants, the caterpillars that result from their eggs do. They will eat whatever plant they are born on till they run out of food and have to move on to the next one. Similar to other insects the growth rate for the moth population is exponential. One adult moth can produce over 700 eggs. Moths for the most part are nocturnal insects. They use the moon or other bright objects to navigate in a straight line. Since the moon or other faraway objects stay at a relatively constant position the moths are able to keep the same angle and navigate in a straight flight pattern. This is disrupted when they encounter artificial lights and is the reason they often fly in circles around porch lights.

Black Flies

Black flies will bite just about anything that has blood in them.

They do this by finding a host and puncturing the skin. This is why getting bit by one is particularly painful. Different species of black flies prefer to bite certain hosts and are often named after it (i.e. Horsefly, turkey gnat etc). Black flies are able to hatch anywhere there is moving water. They prefer to bite outdoors and during the day. While insect repellents work well for other biting insects they do not work well against black flies. According to a study conducted by the University of Florida various types of Black Flies are attracted to the chemical DEET, the main repellent of mosquitoes!

Horse & Deer Flies

Horse and Deer Flies produce a painful bite to break through the skin of their victims.

They are year round pests in the southern part of the United States and a summer nuisance in most of the northern part of the country. Horse and Deer flies will lie in shady areas under bushes and trees waiting for a host to walk by. While sight is the main attractant they are also attracted to CO2 and other odors. These flies like to become active around dawn and at dusk. The main times they are active is for 3 hours after daybreak and for 2 hours before sunset. Other common names for these flies are Bulldog Flies, Clegs, Yellow Flies of the Dismal Swamp, Greenheads, Gad Fly, and Copper Heads.

No-See-Ums

(Ceratopogonidae)

Being less than 1/8 of an inch long these small biting insects are often un-seen before they bite you.

No-See-Ums

Being less than 1/8 of an inch long these small biting insects are often un-seen before they bite you.

They are often invisible to the naked eye if they are not in a large swarm. No-See-Ums tend to be found in shrubs or in dead leafs that are lying on the ground. Walking around these areas and stirring them up often results in individuals getting bitten. These insects often do not fly more than 400 ft from where they are living so getting rid of them in your yard will have a lasting effect. No-See-Ums are attracted to CO2 which makes DynaTrap a very good choice in your fight against these pests.

Sand Flies

(Also Known As Sand Fleas, Sand Gnats, and Chitra)

Sand Flies are biting insects that are often so small, they are undetectable until you feel their bite.

Sand Flies

Sand Flies are biting insects that are often so small, they are undetectable until you feel their bite.

Sand Flies are mainly active in the early morning, dusk and at night. Mid-day temperature are often too warm for the sand fly and it will spend most of the day in a cool and humid resting area. A very popular place for sand flies/fleas to live is right along the waterfront. They often are found in seaweed that is washed up on the shore. Like many other biting insects only the females will bite, since this is required for egg production.

Asian Lady Beetles

While Asian Beetles were originally introduced as a pest fighting measure they are quickly becoming overwhelming in certain areas of the country.

Asian Lady Beetles

While Asian Beetles were originally introduced as a pest fighting measure they are quickly becoming overwhelming in certain areas of the country.

Asian Beetles create a very large nuisance when they find their way into your home in the late fall/winter months and also in the early springtime. When they are killed they release a yellow fluid with a very unpleasant odor from their leg joints. This is a natural defense by the beetle for protection against its natural predators but can create a problem when they are killed inside the home. The fluid may stain walls and fabrics that you have around your house and also leave an unpleasant smell. Asian Beetles are attracted to light and this is the main way to trap Asian Beetles. This makes our indoor traps perfect for capturing Asian Beetles that make their way into your home.

Japanese Beetles

and adult stages of
their life.

Japaense Beetles

Japanese Beetles are incredibly damaging in both the larva and adult stages of their life.

When they are in the larva stage they devastate turf grasses by weakening the root system. Also they cause indirect damage to your yard since animals, such as raccoons, skunks, and birds, will tear up your lawn trying to capture these small grubs. Since the beetle is able to fly in from other areas just eliminating the grubs will not solve your beetle problem. When the adult beetles emerge they are about 1/2 inch long and are a green color with bronze wings and will start feeding on over 300 different species of plants.

Yellow Jackets

Wasps and yellow jackets can aggressively attack your family and pets.

Yellow Jackets are roughly 12-16mm in length and are easily distinguishable by the yellow and black coloring. If you encounter a yellow jacket nest you will not want to disturb it during the day. Female yellow jackets are extremely aggressive and will sting repeatedly if provoked. This includes anything from swinging at them, inadvertently vibrating their nest, to simply walking too close to the nest. When yellow jackets are smashed and killed they will emit a chemical that is picked up by other yellow jackets in the area. This method of killing yellow jackets will only make the problem worse. To trap yellow jackets, set up your DynaTrap as close to the nest as you safely can.
