Dynatrap® 1250 Insect Eliminator 3.5 5 73 76
Best Insect Trap Ever! I have finally been able to enjoy evenings on my deck without being bothered by mosquitoes and other insects. I have put it in an out-of-the-way place where it's not even visible to guests, but it still seems to be clearing my deck of most of the bothersome nighttime pests. No noise, no chemicals...I love it! August 3, 2015
This will take care of what's bugging you! This really pulls in the flying insects. Don't forget to empty it. Very simple, quiet, nice looking. I really like the bronze color from Frontgate. I love the feeling of interrupting the breeding cycle of those darn mosquitoes. July 30, 2015
Still going strong Because of all the late, wet weather this season the mosquitoes and other biting insects have been very bad in our area. We bought this mainly because of the 90 day return policy. Thirty days in we have a pile of non-beneficial insects in the bottom, the bees are still pollinating our trees and roses, and I can sit outside and enjoy my yard in the evening without swelling up from mosquito bites. Now if only there was a battery operated version we could take with us camping... July 10, 2015
Well Over 100 Mosquitoes The First Night! I hesitated buying this because reviews were mixed. Some say they only catch a few moths and others say they catch hundreds of mosquitoes. I can proudly say that the very first night I have well over 100 mosquitoes in there! Setup was super easy too. The only negative is the optional Shephard's Hook which is surprisingly flimsy. It bends under the weight of the Dynatrap. April 20, 2015
Bye Bye bugs Love my Dynatrap! Best thing on the market. No pesticides, no refills, no sprays. Very efficient at trapping critters. Easy to empty Only need to replace the bulbs (but I've had mine two seasons and haven't replaced them yet and the unit is still working effectively. October 20, 2014
bugs be gone! I always seek environmentally friendly products and methods in running our household, and this insect eliminator is a success! We have been using it about a month, and so far it has not caught any beneficial insects ( a big plus!) while the catch basin fills up with all sorts of biting, flying, and buzzing critters. I bought this when I found myself covered in red bites after sitting on the porch one evening, and being chased by wasps while working in the yard; I haven't been bitten or chased by anything since! It is very quiet, with a pretty blue light. We love it! September 26, 2014
Works Just as Promised We can walk out our patio door again without mosquitos and other flying insects coming into the house, and sit by the pool in the evening - perfect! Thanks Dynatrap! August 6, 2014
many thanks We are so very grateful to have our back porch again. Simple to set up and very easy to clean. You would not believe the number of dead mosquitos I harvest each week. July 31, 2014

Answer: 
1. Turn power switch to “off” position. UNPLUG UNIT, and allow bulb to cool before replacing.
2. Remove retaining cage, and turn unit upside down.
3. Remove the four screws securing the fan housing to the light housing. After removing the screws, gently pull the fan housing away from
the light housing. Using a soft brush, remove dirt and debris from the light housing. Once the cleaning process has been completed,
untighten the screw securing the base of the light bulb to the light housing. Slide the metal bracket to the side. Cover the bulb with a
cloth to protect your finger and hand. Grasp the bulb (with your hand and fingers protected by the cloth) and gently pull the bulb from
the socket.
4. Remove any debris from the lamp socket with a brush before inserting the new bulb. Replace the metal plate over the base of the bulb
and tighten the retaining screw.
5. Align the screw holes in the fan housing with the screw holes in the lighting unit and tighten the screws to the base of the lighting unit.
6. Replace the retaining cage at the bottom of the unit.

You say it will not attract bees but the Dynatrap website says that it will. This is why I am so uncertain as to whether or not to buy this product. How long do I have to return? And why the discrepancy in information?

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting the Frontgate Product Specialist Department. How to replace the bulb:Unplug the unit and remove the retaining cage. Turn unit upside down and place your thumbs across (away from your body) on the white funnel, place your other fingers over the unit like you are gripping a roller coaster bar. The funnel will release and you will have access to the light bulbs. Rotate old bulbs 90°
and lift to remove. Insert new bulbs and rotate 90° to seat. Reassemble unit aligning the groove to the funnel with electrical wires. Attach fan, and replace the collection chamber/retaining cage with a simple twist.

Answers

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this item. The Dynatrap attracts flying insects that are attracted to carbon dioxide and fluorescent lights, including mosquitoes and other flying insects. Butterflies are typically attracted to plants that produce nectar and flowers, which would keep them away from this item.
