Rated 5 out of 5 by Amelia Best Buy Ever
My husband and I purchase our first house and I ordered this before we knew we were closing because no matter what we got we were going to have outdoor space. The condo we got has a large balcony and this works great there. I purchase the 1/2 acre; which is perfect for my space. It worked so well my niece needed to borrow it until she could order her own; she has two dogs that come in and out of the house and she was having a fly issue but within a half hour she noticed a difference and couldn't wait for delivery so she took mine and I got a new one. I left mine sitting on a cement block close to the ground or on the ground and I left out all day and night and never had an issue. This is truly a great product. Oh yeah it is quite, you can hold abnormal conversation. If you are thinking about buying don't think and just do it.
Rated 1 out of 5 by mickey23 Waste of Money - Does Not Work
Purchased for summer for backyard near pool --was hoping to keep the bees, bugs away while floating in the pool and also to get rid of stinkbugs which is first year we have had many -- all summer - stinkbugs covered my screens and came in house - even though close to the Dynatrap which stayed plugged in all season.....also bees/bugs kept landing on me in pool -- also huge influx of stinkbugs this week -- have cleaned machine to make sure still working -- light is lit -- but does NOT get rid of the stinkbugs.....wish I had returned earlier in season but now too late - so stuck with expensive machine that does NOT work as promised. Very disappointed. Not a cheap item either. Buyers beware.

I wanted to use this so I could sit on my front porch without being bitten by mosquitos. I followed the instructions implicitly and even moved the unit all around to see if I had a better response in other areas. It stayed on 24/7, 3' off the ground, etc. but I still was getting eaten up by the vampire bugs. Anything that sounds too good to be true usually is, this trap was no exception. It did catch a lot of other bugs, just not enough mosquitos to allow me to enjoy sitting outside.
Rated 1 out of 5 by PBJG A waste of my money!
I got this early in the summer when it was a TSV. I have watched and re-watched the live presentation to see what I'm doing wrong since there is really very little in the receptacle...ZERO wasps or yellow jackets which was my main reason for ordering it. I wish I would have retuned it when I first noticed its lack of performance because it's way too late now. What a huge waste of hard earned money!!! The only reason I gave it one star is because it is required to give at least one to write a review. It was one star too many!

This has made outside bug-free and enjoyable again!
Rated 3 out of 5 by dlk30519 Does not catch all bugs they say
It is wonderful for catching moths & mosquito's. I live in Buford GA, FYI. It however has not caught any stink bugs or flies and only a handful of hornets, yellow jackets. Flies are only around in the day as well as stink bugs & they don't go anywhere near that thing :( We have it placed 10 ft from the back door & appx 10 ft from where we sit under the gazebo.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Jolielabelle It Catches A Lot of...High Hopes but...
WOW does the Dynatrap catch a ton of moths. I don't recall seeing one mosquito though. The basket-screw-attachment is hard to open if one has arthritis. I had HIGH hopes but alas, the fan quit working. I have been instructed to send it back. However, since the product 's fan stopped working I do not believe it is right that I should have to pay to return it for a refund. Dynatrap you certainly have one good moth catcher! (I think I even saw a butterfly or two, which I do not want caught/killed.)
Rated 3 out of 5 by mrsdah Just okay...
This product is not a miracle mosquito eliminator. So many people had raved about it that I thought for sure I’d love it. It’s really effective in approximately a 10-foot radius of the machine. My backyard is about 1/4 acre and we still have massive amounts of mosquitos lurking in the yard and since using the Dynatrap the dragonflies (who eat mosquitoes) have disappeared. It will however, trap every other insect known to man. When you clean out the trap be careful because, as they advise, it will release some insects back into the atmosphere. I tried to give it time to work and missed my cut-off to return it. It works about as well as any bug zapper.
