5 Best Insect Traps

Let me set the scene. Its a lovely hot day in August. You have family and friends over for a BBQ. Evening hits. All your lights come on. All of a sudden, you are inundated with mosquitoes, flies and all other types of insects. Ruins the mood right?

In this blog, we have compiled a list of some of the best traps to avoid this happening. 

1. Decoy Wasp Nest

These work all day long. How it works is the wasp flies to the fake nest, realises it doesn't belong to that nest and then flies off to go find its real nest. Clever right? You can get yourself decoy wasp nests here.

2. Mosquito Killer Lamp

Next we are going a bit brutal. This lamp attracts the mosquitos and bugs and then electrocutes them and they die. Brutal but effective. Shop here.

3. Citronella Candle

A classic for mosquitoes. They are repelled away from the smell. And as it is a candle. No cleaning has to be done! Get yourself one here.

4. Ultimate Outdoor Fly Trap

This monster of a trap can attract flies and mosquitoes from up to 10m away. It works by trapping the creatures inside and not letting them out again. It can hold up to 60,000 flies! A long term solution to the problems! Get yourself one here.

5. Floral Window Fly Stickers

If its hot you may have your windows and doors open. This may lead to a huge amount of flying bugs getting inside. These stickers attract the flies who then stick to it and die. All you need to do is peel the sticker off when it gets too full! Works a treat! Get yourself some here.
