A safer way to trap pests inside and out this summer - My WAHM Plan

A safer way to trap pests inside and out this summer

The warm spring days that feel more like summer have arrived in middle Tennessee. With our crazy cooler than average April temps, it is a welcome feeling to be wearing flip-flops instead of layers! My family and I are so ready to start spending our evenings outside. Unfortunately, warmer weather has brought out a legion of flying bugs and pests. Thanks to today’s sponsor, DynaTrap, I have a safer way to trap pests both inside and out this summer. 


DynaTrap Sonata A safer way to trap pests (sponsored)


My thanks to DynaTrap for sending me two complimentary traps to facilitate today’s post. No further compensation was given and all opinions are my own. 



Meet the ½ acre DynaTrap Sonata outdoor trap:

According to their website, the Sonata is designed to match your outside home d├ęcor. I like the lightweight, sleek design and color. The cool thing about this product is it is a trap, not a zapper which I think is a more humane way to keep pests away.  


“DynaTrap® technology uses a 3-way protection plan for insect extermination. A powerful UV emitting fluorescent bulb produces warm and bright light that attracts insects to the unit. The DynaTrap® also produces carbon dioxide, which is irresistible to mosquitoes. After Insects and mosquitoes are lured to the trap, the powerful fan draws them into the retaining cage where they dehydrate and die.”



I chose this model with our backyard and deck in mind. We love sitting on the deck, gardening, or playing in the backyard all summer long, but sometimes the bugs would keep us from enjoying our outdoor space.  I was drawn to the key features of this particular model like:


Key Features:

  • Indoor/Outdoor Use
  • Provides ½ acre coverage
  • No attractant or propane needed
  • Can be used 24 hours and day 7 days a week
  • Easy twist on/off cap keeps insects from escaping during cleaning
  • Whisper quiet
  • Easy to set up and use

I can't wait to run the Sonata for a longer period of time, beyond dusk to see how bright the blue light becomes. I bet it will be a pretty sight once we reach full nightfall out here on our property where it gets really dark.



Meet the FlyLight indoor insect trap:

While you can use the Sonata inside, I also received the Flylight model which covers about 600 square feet.  This is the perfect size for your kitchen, bath, foyer, even garage. Anywhere those pesky mosquitoes, flies and other bugs are congregating.  


What I really like about this product is it’s a pesticide-free way to trap bugs and disease-carrying flies all while looking sleek when plugged in. Just add the enclosed glue insect trap liner to this model, plug in and you are good to go. 



Flylight’s key features:

  • Protects up to 600 sq. ft.
  • Pesticide, odor-free inside protection
  • Silent, Safe and Simple to use
  • No zapping or buzzing
  • No attractant needed
  • Two AC pass through outlets
  • Two USB pass through outlets
  • Provides bright nightlight illumination



Folks, when I say this nightlight provides illumination, I mean it! See how pretty and bright blue this is in the photos? You’ll want to plug in your FlyLight in a room where it won’t interfere with your sleep! I put it in the hallway the first night I had it and it bothered me and my daughter.

The Take Away:

I’m very excited to own both of these DynaTrap products. From my limited use so far, I can say they both do exactly what they say they will, which is trap those pests in a pesticide and noise free way.  If you’d like to do the same for your family this summer, head on over to DynaTrap to learn more about the company and their products. 


From my house to yours- I hope you will have warm, happy, pest-free summer days!
