It’s officially open-window season! While this time brings many of the elements we love, from fresh air to a cool breeze, it’s not uncommon for a few unwanted guests to wiggle their way in through the cracks — yep, we’re talking bugs.
Many folks tend to use the tried-and-true sticky bug-catching sheets that have been house staples for decades. While they get the job done, it’s hard to ignore that they’re an eyesore. Also, who really knows what that gooey exposed film is made of?
With this inconvenience in mind, the folks at Katchy designed an indoor insect trap that is powerful, non-toxic, and most importantly, mess-free. Currently, the Katchy Indoor Insect and Flying Bug Trap is on sale on Amazon.
Katchy Indoor Insect Trap, $39.99 (Orig. $44.99)
Katchy uses UV light, a proven and widely popular sanitizing and germ-killing proponent, to attract any insects that come into your home. Once the critters make contact with the light, the built-in fan sucks them in, and they stick to the boards, which can be swapped in one single sweep.
There really isn’t much more to it, and that’s what shoppers love most about this device. Several shoppers were so impressed with the device that they dubbed Katchy the best bug catcher you can buy, especially for zapping flying pests that aren’t just flies and mosquitoes.
Tons of shoppers who live in the south, especially Florida, added that this product is perfect for getting rid of fruit flies and, best of all, it’s not an eyesore.
Also, one of this product’s best features is its cage-protected glue area at the bottom of the device. Thanks to this design, you’ll never come in contact with the sticky paper, even if you accidentally bump the device.
