Catch mosquitoes with a safe, chemical-free trap

The rainy season is here again and comes with an increase in the population of mosquitoes. This creates a problem where you need a safe but effective way to get rid of what is considered the most dangerous animal in the world.

You’ve cleaned so why do mosquitoes still breed

Even though you may have cleaned your surroundings and eliminated all possible sites that may encourage the breeding of these pests, you may still notice that there are more of them still around.

Mosquitoes will take advantage of naturally occurring receptacles that have the ability to collect rain water. Examples of these are hollowed out branches or tree stumps, empty coconut shells and even plants like the bromeliad. Here, the mosquitoes lay their eggs which go through various stages ending with an adult mosquito.

Diseases spread by mosquitoes

The females suck blood and in turn spread diseases. The list of diseases spread by these insects is almost endless, Zika, Malaria, Chikungunya, Dengue and Yellow Fever. Combined these diseases are responsible for millions of deaths around the world.

Highly toxic insecticides and repellants

Traditionally, we have relied on either corrosive, highly toxic and possibly carcinogenic chemicals in the form of insecticides or repellants, or in the case of mosquito coils which have been known to be fire hazards resulting in numerous deaths. The question is how do you keep mosquitoes away from your loved ones, without giving them Cancer in the long term or setting the family house afire?

Non-toxic mosquito trap

The Sweet TnT Magazine team tried the Non-toxic Mosquito Trap by Fochea Electronic which uses a UV lamp and has a 360 Degree escape-proof mesh design for indoor outdoor use. This USB powered device may seem a bit simplistic in design, the thing is it actually works. It has a series of ultra-violet LEDs that attract mosquitoes and a small fan that sucks them in when they reach the light source. The fan kills them on contact and if they do survive keeps them in. No chemicals no fire it is that simple. We tested it for a couple of hours and caught a few mosquitoes.

Of course, there are larger more expensive models for larger indoor and outdoor protection against disease carrying mosquitoes. This model was selected for testing because it is affordable at US$20 on Amazon.com. It is portable and can be plugged in to a laptop in the park, a power bank, car cigarette lighter or your phone’s power brick. Also, it is safe to have around your family and pets. Click any of the images to order one of these safe yet effective mosquito traps.
