Dynatrap® 1250 Insect Eliminator is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Does Work Bought this hoping it would be useful in my office at work. Where nats/fruit flies seem to appear magically. I have a sink station in my office. It had to run it day and night for about 10 days but it did the job. My office is bug free. Built well, quiet, a little on the eye catching side, almost impossible not to notice. Appearance is however sleek. But the big clencher is: give it time and it will work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Working well After running for a week, this seems to be eliminating the mosquitoes. The "no-see-ems" are still out in force. We did notice the fan wasn't working after the first day, but after checking, discovered a large moth had clogged it. Once it was removed, everything is working fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jury still out I've had the Insect Eliminator running for about 2 weeks now. It's caught some bugs, but not a huge amount. I'm still getting hit by mosquitoes but would like to give it more time. As the instructions state, it takes a while to break the breeding cycle. We're closer to the end of the mosquito season here in Northern Virginia, so we'll see how it works over the next month or so. Appears to be well made and was easy to set up out of the box.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice effect, cleaning challenge Works great, catching mostly moths, still trying to estimate percentage of mosquito's. Needed practice to remove bottom basket on first cleaning. Hard to grasp with one hand while holding top section. Suggest keeping a spray can ready to give a little squirt so live ones don't all fly away before you dump it. Or maybe a plastic coffee can lid to cover basket when removing it. It creates a nice lighting effect on the deck in the evening, so we'd rather not place it far away..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far So Good We purchased the dynatrap three weeks ago. It is early June now, so the jury is still out on how effective it is going to be. Our big problem is mosquitoes and it is hard to say this early in the season whether it will allow us to sit out in our backyard or not. So far, there have not been any mosquitoes, but I don't know whether that is the dynatrap (unlikely, I think) or the cool weather. As for the product itself, it is easy to use. The instructions are a bit confusing, but the phone help was friendly and clear. Our fingers are crossed for long term benefits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from so far so good I really like this!! It attracts a lot of bugs and flying insects and we're able to sit outside longer. I live in a rural farm area where mosquitoes dominate how long we are able to enjoy our pool in the evenings. So far so good!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Purchase We put the Dynatrap about 20 feet from our patio. Its quiet and the blue light is bright. The next night my husband checked the basket to see if anything was in it and he was amazed, it was 3/4 full of all kinds of bugs, insects and mosquitos. The same thing the second night. It really seems to attrack the bugs and do it's job. The best part, it's quiet. We are please with this product

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dynatrap 1250 Seems to be working great. Have only been using it for about 1 week. Easy to set up and good quality. Flying bugs, especially mosquito's have almost disappeared. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks good---seems to be working. We have had a lot of mosquitos this summer. It appears that there are less of them. If the Dynatrap gets rid of them, then I will consider it a success.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from bug zapper Looks to be high quality. Bug season here in St. Louis has been mild, so not much opportunity to use it as yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from attractive addition to my outdoor area The trap seems to be working although its been raining so we have not been out much but there are plenty of bugs trapped in the container. Will have to wait for dryer weather to test the mosquito repellant part of it which was the main reason we bought the item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great idea and it works We live in Florida where bugs abound all year. Ive had the unit for a month or so and I have to empty the bug reservoir at least once a week. While there are still plenty of pests around, the unit is working as advertised and does help reduce the amount of flying insects in the patio.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DynaTrap It appears this will help reduce the mosquito (and other flying insect) population on my patio, where I spend a lot of time in good weather, including grilling. But it is not as well grounded as I would like. Any strong wind that comes around, especially in a storm, could knock it over. That hasn't happened yet, but we haven't had a lot of strong wind yet. I have tried to secure its base with bricks, but it should have a better, strong base.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Purchase We bought the insect eater. Seems effective. Will judge in a of couple of months if the mosquitos and other annoying critters learn not to bother us as we enjoy our deck.
Date published: 2012-06-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works! Assembled and used the product for the first time last evening. It was nice to sit out on our courtyard without being annoyed by insects. The only problem is in the assembly. The pole that screws into the base does not do so, tightly. We tried this three times and gave up. The pole rocks back and forth within the stand, but the good news is that it doesn't fall over... we also have not hs any high winds to test this yet, either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Helpful Pest Control I do appreciate the look and the fact that it keeps the bugs WAY down. While it won't completely eliminate all of the mosquitos (the strong ones survive!), it is far more comfortable. Attractive and efficient. Holds quite a few bugs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dynatrap - Not so much I've now been using this for about a month and it's almost ready to be returned. The unit works perfectly but I am still swarmed by mosquitoes and all other sorts of insects. I've moved it several times to see if that helps but still no luck. I have had to augment this with both citronella torches and candles and when i use those, things are good. I am giving it one more move to see what the outcome is but am not expecting much more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Jury is still out Moved here in June 2012 and thought the mosquitoes weren't bad that summer. Bought this because we were eaten alive on our deck in summer 2013. The Dynatrap seemed to catch a lot of moths in June and July this year. Now we have seen some mosquitoes along with the moths in the catcher and haven't been getting bites, but we are not sure if it's the weather or the dynatrap. We should know more as it cools a little and we have more opportunity to use the deck.....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still Testing! I have had the unit for about a month and so far very few insects have been caught. Not sure at this point how effective the unit is.
Date published: 2013-08-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected The bug zapper is good but the stand is not stable so it blows in the wind. Sometimes, in bad weather, it blows over. I had hoped for something more solid.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A traditional bug zapper without the 'zap' Have been looking for a good mosquito-killing contraption for some time. Not sure this is it. It does catch insects, as advertised, but mostly moths and such. The purple bulb is supposed to emit CO2 that mimics human breath, but who knows how effective that feature is. Otherwise, it's just a purple light that draws the insects - but instead of the crude zap of traditional models a fan sucks the bugs into a cage. The cage feature is tricky, as any living bugs will bolt for freedom if you open to inspect the carnage. Will give it some more time, but the results so far are little more than a dent in the local moth population.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from still have pesky mosquitos We've had this plugged in and outside on patio for about 2 weeks now. It seems to be helping, but I expected it to eliminate the mosquitos better than it has. Grilling out the other night, however, no one else was getting bitten except me, hmmm....maybe the skeeters just really like me :( .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bought for My Wife Mosquitos don't seem to think I'm very tasty so I get bitten rarely. On the other hand, they love my wife so I bought the Dynatrap 1250 with her in mind. So far, I have not gotten bitten once, however, when wifey walks outside for more than 5 minutes she still gets bitten . . . a lot. We've only had the1250 in use for a few weeks so we remain hopeful we'll see some improvement a little later on. We have an older model of the Dynatrap we've been using for the past couple or years and it didn't have any effect on the bites my wife suffered prior to our purchasing it. But, as I said, we keep hoping that after using the new 1250 for a longer time frame we'll see fewer mosquito problems for my wife. We certainly hope so!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buyer beware We thought it sounded too good to be true but decided to try the handy looking bug zapper. The fan motor stopped working the first day. When I called for service they said they never heard of such a problem and they sent me a new fan motor - to install myself. Well, the new part only runs every now and then also. So, after 3 weeks and very few bugs in the collector, I guess it was too good to be true.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Moth's Aren't the Problem Have had it running on a large loggia porch (under cover) for 4 weeks now. Sack is filling up with moths but not so obvious with mosquitos and "no see-ums" knatts. Just went out for a glass of wine and sitting no more than 20 feet from unit. Bug bites were too much, had to come in. I do believe the mosquito activity has been diminished but not sufficiently for my expectations.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dynatrap 1250 Works great at trapping insects, but as a mosquito device I'm not impressed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dynatrap 1250 Insect Eliminator Ran it for 24 hours for 3 days as recommended in the beginning and then turned it on in the evenings and it did not keep 1/2 acre bug free as stated.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Collects a lot of moths but no mosquitoes We have been using this product for 2 months now and have come to the conclusion that it is worthless! All it collects are moths. The moths are attracted to the light and they get sucked in, but not any mosquitoes.
Date published: 2013-07-17
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not catch mosquitos This product does catch flying insects. Mostly moths but it does not catch mosquitos. I've used it the entire summer 24/7 like they recommended and not one mosquito. When I took it out this season to try it again, the bulb doesn't work. Not worth the money unless you have a moth problem

I want to kill mosquitoes, bees and wasps.

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?
Asked by: Bizprof
I have not seen that it attracts bees but I have seen that it attracts large flies and Junebugs.

Can the Dynatrap 1250 be placed on a surface top?

Asked by: Fida
It could be placed on a flat surface but I think it would blow over if it was windy

Do you recommend one of the Dynatrap devices to help control gnats?

Our property is near a lake and we are blanketed with gnats during the summer. Would one of your products best help us control this issue?
Asked by: Preston1
The Dynatrap® 1250 Insect Eliminator is designed to attract mesquitos, but it will also help control gnats.
