In years past, most people would just accept that getting bit by a mosquito was inevitable during the summer months. It was an inconvenience but no big deal. However, that cavalier attitude about these pests has changed, due in part to the realization that these insects can carry some pretty hideous diseases such as West Nile and Dengue. Which makes buying a mosquito trap not only a luxury but almost makes it an essential tool to have in many areas.
While buying the best mosquito trap may seem like it would be a quick and easy process, unfortunately, that’s not always the case. These traps often use different methods of trapping mosquitoes and as a result, can have very different results. Below I’ve listed ten models that I feel are the best mosquito trap models that are currently available and should solve just about anyone’s mosquito problem.
10. Vensmile Electric Bug Zapper
Attracting flying insects using UV bulbs and killing them in a 360-degree field around it, this unit will quickly get rid of not only mosquitoes but also flies, gnats, and other flying insects. It does it without using chemicals and by drawing the bugs into a powerful 800-volt grid that instantly kills them. This electrical grid is protected by an ABS cage that prevents children from putting their fingers into it and is completely flame retardant. Another key feature of this unit is a tray that allows for easy disposal of the insects after they have been killed.
9. Iselector Indoor Electric Fly Zapper

And since it doesn’t use chemicals or other harmful materials to kill mosquitoes, it’s also an eco-friendly way to deal with a pest problem in the home.
