This electric fly trap attracts, captures and kills nuisance insects; it’s perfect for use outdoors in the backyard or around the patio. The insect trap comes with its own stake, making placement easy. Once turned on, the UV fluorescent bulb generates a warm light, attracting insects like mosquitoes, flies and fruit flies. When they land on the trap, they are sucked up into the bottom-mounted collection tray by powerful vacuum action while the top funnel holds their wings away from fan blades to prevent damage. The safe UV light is harmless to people and animals but deadly to pests that have not eaten recently.
