PRODUCT #5: DynaTrap DT1100 Insect Trap

The DynaTrap DT1100 insect trap is the essential Father’s Day gift and product for summer: it provides affordable, efficient mosquito relief for your yard and home.  DynaTrap insect traps attract mosquitoes, biting flies and other flying insects without pesticides or chemicals. The DynaTrap is easy to set up, low maintenance and environmentally-friendly, enabling you to guard your yard (protects up to ½ acre) against pesky mosquitos all summer long.  This insect trap is engineered for 3-way protection. First, a UV fluorescent bulb generates a warm light, attracting insects. Then a second lure, an exclusive Ti02 titanium dioxide-coated surface, produces CO2 (the same gas we emit when we exhale) that's irresistible to mosquitoes. Third, a powerful, yet whisper-quiet vacuum fan sucks insects into the retaining cage where they dehydrate and die.  PRICE: $139; www.DynaTrap.com
