This was very easy to set up. There are no confusing switches, and the sticky trap only fits in one way. I was worried that this trap wouldn't work because the room I put it in always had some light, but it does! I bought this because my plant room has fungus gnats, and I needed a trap to catch them while I was treating the soil to get rid of them. It works great!
We have been beyond annoyed this season with all the Mosquitoes getting in our home. We have oversized sliders and kids going in and out. We got another version of a light but it did not work. We found this and oh my goodness!! We have 3 and each one has gotten so many of the little vampires!! We are beyond happy!!
Didn't get more medicine
We have two cabins that we rent out. Bugs like cabins a lot. I have tried to get rid of bugs by putting out different kinds of things that bugs like. Without a doubt, this is the best. All bugs are drawn to it. Even tiny fruit flies and their friends, flies, spiders, and moths. I put one on each floor so that it would work best. The unit and refills are a little on the expensive side, but it works very well, and I only have to change out the replacement insert every three weeks during peak summer bug season.
Well worth the money! We haven't seen any flies, fruit flies, or mosquitoes since we plugged it in. Our house is 1,300 square feet, but only one of these works for the whole place! Best ever!
It won't get rid of every bug. But a lot of them get caught by this thing. Sticky pads show the truth. Every week, she gets dozens of them.
The fly in my house didn't stay long before it went "toward the light" and is now gone. Will buy refills and strongly suggest.
I'm having a problem with little drain flies in my shower right now. I finally got tired of waiting and ordered this. I thought the price was a bit high, but I had high hopes. I had high hopes after reading all the great reviews, so I splurged and bought this little gadget. I'll tell you, that picture was taken after only about half a day. This product really went above and beyond what I had hoped for.
I didn't think the tool would work, but it did. I couldn't believe how well it worked.
I like that it catches every bug. I have a lot of flies and fruit flies in my house, and this works great at catching them. It only took a few days for it to start to work. Now my house is bug-free.
Yesterday was the first time I used it. I looked at it today, and I couldn't believe how many bugs it had already caught. I'd tell everyone to buy this product.
This GlowTrap is perfect for any house! I was amazed at how well it traps insects. The sticky bottom pad is a terrific idea. The device is also relatively quiet while working, which I like. Don't be shy.
I've tried everything at home to get rid of mosquitoes in my flat, but nothing worked. Mosquito season in the South may be excruciating. I was sleeping with the light on so I wouldn't hear them and waking up to mosquito bites. This is a fantastic product that has fixed the issue! Buy it weeks ago! After just 12 hours! When I woke up, I had 10 mosquitos trapped!
We got three of them to get rid of gnats in several rooms, and they worked in two days! Unplug or lower any night lights to maximize efficacy. The room must be entirely dark for the bugs to be drawn to it and suckered all day. We simply leave them running now, and they work well.
The greatest stuff I've bought for fruit flies. But I've tried bait traps and sticky traps before. After just 4 days of utilizing it at night, my condition improved. My shelf goods and fruit were spoiling too quickly, and now I only notice one or two fruit flies before seeing 10-15 in one location. Buy this if you have a fruit fly issue.
I was dubious until I opened it up and noticed all the fruit flies it had attracted. It captured a few terrible bugs, but largely fruit flies and gnats. Great! It will be fun to collect mosquitoes this summer. I ordered extra sticky traps, but they last a long time and work well! It's silent, and I keep mine in the dark part of my kitchen counter to catch flies.
Incredible! This gadget is great for removing Mosquitoes. I attempted many solutions to this issue. Only this has worked!! That way, I can sleep quietly and wake up free of insect bites!! No mosquitoes!
Fungus gnats have infected our 20+ indoor plants. Despite our best efforts, we still encountered 10-15 gnats every day (yes, it was a LOT worse at its peak). I bought the glowtrap to get rid of the adults and stop their producing eggs. We were desperate and eager to do anything. I wasn't expecting much from the trap, but I wanted to give it a go. We ran it day and night, rotating it between our three rooms near the plant density. We could see gnats adhered to the sticky pad after a day, but the truly great benefits came after a week when we noticed fewer gnats. We now see 1 or 2, but some days we see none! This was the most effective and easy technique to regulate the adult population. 10/10!
I got a new one! GREAT. My buddy even got me another for my birthday. It's great for mosquitoes and fruit flies, so I'm glad they changed it. I've used it for a year. I used it for mosquitoes in my RV, at work, and in my kitchen for fruit flies. It works. I retained the box to keep it and transport it. I bought MANY MORE adhesive sheets, figuring I'd use them for years.
I disagree with every bad review of this product. I've had it for 2 weeks, and it's amazing. After reading the reviews, I looked at the sticky pad and counted 33 gnats/fruit flies/mosquitoes/etc. Those suffering issues may not have it at the best or most crowded bug concentration. We keep ours running all day in the kitchen near the fruit basket. Try it; if you're not happy, return it. We reside on 2.5 acres of woods, and these creatures invade the home every time the door is opened. I intend to purchase two more. We think it's worth it.
I've had fungus gnats in my home for over a year, driving me crazy. I got this to help eliminate gnats and maybe rid my home of them forever. So far, it's done well enticing, catching, and murdering them. I'm thinking about getting more to sprinkle throughout the home. I suggest it.
I adore this machine! Even after treating the plants, the airborne attack on everyone sitting in our living room persisted... until we got the glowtrap. Oh, Mercy! This machine is a steal!!! Extra adhesive pads for the bottom of the trap, which are simple to remove without contacting the bugs. For the first three days, I operated the trap in continuous mode...GNAT MASSACRE! We even got some months on the sticky pad in 3 days. The trap is set to night mode and goes on when the lights go off. Bugs are gone, and my family gets their living room back.
WOW! I'm impressed! It comes with a wall plug. Thank you!
We maintain a neat home. My wife repotted several house plants in autumn, and we've been dealing with gnats and fruit flies ever since. This winter, it was cold in Wisconsin, so I thought I'd turn down the heat and get rid of them. That failed. We'd be on the sofa, and suddenly there'd be one. Enough to be bothersome. I figured we'd have to bug-bomb the home, but I didn't want to since I was afraid of the chemicals harming the plants and contaminating the dog's food. I decided to give this neat little device a go. It's been fantastic. Plus, no chemicals. It turns on at night. So the gnats are lured to the gadget, I make sure the home is as dark as possible.
WORKS! I just received it, and I'm ecstatic. I, like many of us, work from home today. My dog (bless him) runs from inside to outside all day, so I keep the slider open, so I don't have to let him out and back in 90 times. Thousands of little flies/gnats have gotten inside my plant box, driving me insane. I received it yesterday, plugged it in, and used it manually for 24 hours. The trap already has SIXTEEN bugs. I am pleased with the product and happy I purchased it!
Drain flies are caught! I hope the glue trap was better, or there was some zapping action as they flew into it. When I opened it to see how many bugs were inside, one was still hovering above the trap. Great auto mode! This device kills drain flies.
Great for collecting fruit flies! Many flies were captured in a few days, and now I can relax again. I recommend this product. If you have insects buzzing about, you won't be sorry!
We have a fruit fly problem in our house and have tried several glue traps and sprays, but nothing has worked. The fruit flies tend to reappear. We got it out of desperation and have been pleased with its results. I can't speak for mosquitoes or other pests, but it's a terrific fire and forget pest management for fruit flies.
After eliminating the typical suspects, plants, food, and drainage, I decided to buy this after reading reviews. It's perfect! Great! I've gathered a lot of gnats in recent days. This is my second sticky pad.
We've had difficulties with little flies (fruit flies) coming through our fish tank's filter for many years. Nothing worked until this glowtrap. We found about 50 dead flies on the sticky pad at the bottom of the trap. The flies are gone 95%.
The light is bright at night, but the sticky pad is covered with bugs. Thanks! I was misinformed about the fan power catching larger flies. The fan has also captured a few house flies, which is excellent.
I've tried several indoor mosquito/fly traps, and this is the only one that works. The Glowtrap features these glue boards (rather than simply small wells) and a strong fan.
My fruit flies like it. Replaceable pads made of double-sided tape did not function. Buy the actual item.
We have a fruit fly issue (my wife likes to keep a lot of fruit around). I got this and have been using it on high (constantly) near the fruit for 2 weeks. It filled the sticky sheet on the bottom after 2 weeks. However, it didn't eliminate the fruit fly issue. Since this device creates no vortex or 'danger zone', it depends on 85% of the stupid fly population to unintentionally go over the top of the fan and get suctioned. The blue light on top attracts the upper 15% of 'intelligent' fruit flies, who go for the fruit bowl and avoid the death-trap. I'll keep his trap running to kill the stupid flies, but 10-15 flies will always land on and hover about the fruit dish that will evade the trap. Good for decreasing but not eliminating levels.
Invasion of Fruit Flies I went crazy trying to eliminate them using apple cider vinegar traps. I wish I had bought this gadget when I first started attempting to get rid of them. My flies still catch, but this would have been helpful. That's fantastic since I prefer to keep my patio doors open and things still come in through the screen. I also appreciate that it has a power pack option so you can plug it in and use it on the patio, which I may do this summer. Overall, happy with the purchase and would repurchase it. I keep it running all day and night on the kitchen counter. And it works well, and the fan hums quietly in the background. There are two settings: high and low.
After an extended business trip, I returned home to a fruit fly infestation. It took 2 days of continuous running to fix the issue. It's quiet and portable. I strongly suggest this equipment for any flying bug removal!
This product works.I have a lot of house plants, and I was seeing nats flying about, so I looked it up on Google and bought it.
Amazing how many insects (mainly mosquitos) the Shieldeck captures with these.
I adore Shieldeck! It's always on in my kitchen pantry. I have to replace my pads every few weeks. It captures fruit flies, flies, and moths. Over a year already, and hoping it lasts forever! It is the greatest insect killer around. Bugs love soft sounds and dim light! The adhesive boards hold! I'm not sure why others don't. It's wonderful! We keep it on high all the time. The traps are full of flying insects. I love this small machine!
I bought this product after seeing many youtube videos. The goods I got was defective. I returned the item and got a refund. So I got a new one. I contacted Shieldeck's customer support and explained the situation. My grade for customer service is A+. It also got rid of the fruit flies in my kitchen. It does exactly what it claims. I may now dine in peace!
The best! I did everything to get rid of these annoyances.
I love it! The gnats went nuts while selling my house and living in our travel trailer. This helped them. Make careful to turn off all lights while using socs attracted to the Glowtrap. It'll do the rest. This works!
That's why I bought it. Our vast rural home was gnat-infested. I got 3 traps, and the gnats are gone.
The Gulf has difficulties with no-see-ums, small biting insects. They can crawl through window screens. They adore biting toddlers, and their bites ache badly. We were desperate to murder them inside. The Shieldeck insect trap works as stated. We read and acted on advice to maximise our gains. An adhesive pad beneath a modest fan may capture and retain these little devils until they die. We purchased two insects, catcher models. So I put a Shieldeck adhesive pad to the interior chamber, and it worked on no-see-ums. I can get refills, right? This is great for gnats, fruit flies, and midges. It will also keep mosquitoes out. Love it.
My home is a no-fly zone...love it—small but not inaudible sound. As a diffuser, blue light is soothing, including mosquitoes, moths, gnats, and houseflies. The adhesive boards are sold separately, but they pay a tiny amount to avoid a mess. Set it and forget it! It's lovely to go back and see what you got. Place it in the insect' fly zone' to maximise your results. Ours is on the bar near the living room since the back door has to be opened often to allow the dogs out. It took us a few tries to get the ideal one.
It works on gnats, no-see-ums, mosquitoes, fruit flies, etc. Suggestion: before evening, turn out all lights and let this Shieldeck run for a couple of hours to attract and trap any potential biters. It also runs on MicroUSB. Many battery storage systems operate perfectly (for camping or other convenience.).
This device is fantastic. I nearly didn't purchase it because of the price, but it's already sucked up over 20 gnats in two days. I have indoor plants and a fungus gnat problem (they live in the soil). I used to get a few using an apple cider vinegar solution, but this device blows that out of the water. It works, is quiet, and looks well. Because most magic occurs at night, you may leave it running just then. It also can't be set to run just at specific times of the day. I highly suggest this product.
We had a fruit fly problem and tried almost every solution available. Shieldeck was by far the most reliable performer. But an infestation requires 4 or 5 Shieldecks to make an impact.
If you use it indoors at night with the lights off, it's designed to be used outdoors. The insects don't bother me at that moment. Maybe I had different expectations. It has gnats.
The vendor provided me with a new unit. My previous device was malfunctioning, but this one turns on and remains on without trouble. Fantastic customer service, quick response and replacement equipment.
This gadget has saved my sanity this year. My husband and I live in the country and are plagued by flying insects. Fly landing on objects in my kitchen triggers my OCD to the extent that I have devised "fly protocol" for numerous products. The fly policy requires that everything left in the dish drainer be covered with a kitchen towel, and anything used to cook with be stored in a cupboard or drawer. All food must be covered at all times. Cover the veggies while I finish the chicken. Was I leaving the room for a while? Not before covering everything. It's as Bad. For each fly killed, I joke with my spouse. So I purchased several Redtop fly traps for outdoors and the GLOWTRAP for inside this year. And it worked! The sticky trap demonstrated that the Glowtrap captured numerous mosquitoes, moths, gnats, and fruit flies! I am delighted with it. I highly suggest it. This company could not have done more to please me.
As a paraplegic handicapped veteran, I won't feed you nonsense. I've had mine for over a year. I was suspicious at first until I grasped the device's purpose. Yes, it captures fleas, ticks, flies, and gnats. But it's after the bredder, the female. Also, turn off your lights since pests love light and heat. The machine features a light with a fan that "sucks" them in. Pesticides are not effective against bedbugs. I keep mine directly near the window opening, so it catches them straight away. It's not a quick remedy. It will take days. BUT YOU SHALL SEE RESULTS It's late May 2019. I've noticed one bug since December 2018. I have one in each window and entryway. I recently learned that bugs could enter via vents. Therefore I'll be ordering more for my vents. I'd take photographs, but it could offend others.
Our property is approximately 3,300 square feet and is located in an elite Vancouver area. First impressions were apprehensive! I had been capturing fruit flies using a conventional way. A population "explosion" followed! When I opened my husband's apple bag, hundreds of fruit flies came out. So I sought aid online and discovered Shieldeck. It rapidly captured a lot of fruit flies. I kept it on since we were anticipating home guests for Thanksgiving. Awe-inspiring! We've captured over 100 ADULT fruit flies in the past week and a half!! We have a more significant infestation than we thought! I'd suggest Shieldeck to all my neighbours. Also, if you get a Shieldeck, buy plenty of refills and empty the trap every two weeks or so.
We love the Shieldeck bug trap. The insects on the glue pad show the outcomes. I TRIED IT WITHOUT THEM since I ran out of them, and it still caught bugs. Because I have a toddler and a baby, it captures flies and mosquitos. While I wasn't sure it would work, I located a suitable position and kept it there. It's usually filled after a few days. I have to replace the adhesive board often. But I wanted something safe for a kid (it's out of reach, of course), and I'm pretty pleased with my purchase.
Easy to put up, cheap, and effective in removing fruit flies and flies
Update: I got rid of my fruit fly problem! Due to the persistent kitchen issue, I had to purchase more sticky traps. I had a fruit fly COLONY for a time. I got this non-zapping tool since it worked better than flypapers and was less unattractive than hanging sticky flypapers, which I would have required to eliminate the fruit fly problem.
Is that the greatest I've used? Is it yes? It does help gnats. We found the kitties in a box. But it's a lot better now. It's decent, not outstanding.
Every cent! I may get another!!
I adore them. They are simple to put up, replace adhesive pads, and relocate.
No media was loaded. So far, so lovely, we've just used it one night.
Does a beautiful job with the bugs.
I bought this with trepidation since I've had numerous previous tries at this kind of gadget that were mainly rubbish. It works. Every summer, when I open my windows and doors, I get gnats. They like my houseplants and reading light and stressful summer nights. That's because I established an indoor hydroponic system with extra lights this year. Indeed. The fliers came. This gadget is virtually quiet and practically pest-free. The May get in but don't last long. I purchased two to cover each floor. Made it well. Solid. Attractive. No zaps or loud noises.
excellent as described
The Glowtrap is fantastic. As a salon, we had a significant gnat issue. It cleaned up most of them within three nights.
These are fantastic for killing mosquitoes. I wish there were a reusable, reduced waste solution. (Perhaps a washable detachable portion sprayed with adhesive?)
Easy to put up and works well.
The item is excellent, but the adhesive might be better.
Excellent product. It captured 30 fruit flies overnight.
Great product at a great price.
The fruit flies were gone in 1 day.
It worked wonderfully solved our issue in 2 days.
Excellent customer service and works well at removing fruit flies.
Great concept for keeping "pets" out of the kitchen and away from food.
I appreciate how simple they are, but they are costly.
Great. I have a fruit fly issue that I can't seem to solve. This is great. It's safe and straightforward.
The product works as stated. The first pad was full of fungus gnats and mosquitoes in 3 days.
Great! Easy setup and basically no noise.
Finally, something that works.I'll purchase another if it works as well on mosquitoes.
It works, although I'm not sure how. It kept mosquitoes away when we relaxed in the living room in Africa. I wish it were battery powered.
Although I'd only used it one night, it had already captured six flies this morning. The buzzing might irritate me in the same room, but I'm in another room, and it's alright. The blue night light was lovely. So far, I'm pleased.
Gnats and mosquitoes are part of life in Missouri. We installed a Glowtrap in our kitchen, and it has significantly reduced the number of swarming insects. A touch pricy for new sticky wheels, but generally delighted.
I was concerned whether this product would work, but it does!! One day made a significant impact. This is the greatest!
Customer service is AWESOME!!! Excellent results in our house!!
This stuff is a miracle. It's a lifelong
We've had the house for 25 years and never had a drain fly issue. We ordered 2 of these machines — one for each room — to pick up those tiny flying insects in addition to having the plumbers come out. I'm glad the sticky board refills are back.
I have cats, and the litter brings the flies in. I'm running three. They capture flies and other insects. Recommend if you have fruit flies near your sink. This is a winner.
Amazing! Worked immediately away!
Making homemade sauerkraut resulted in a fruit fly infestation that lasted months. I tried everything to fix it. This gadget proved invaluable in getting rid of the vile critters.
My kitchen has a Glowtrap. My doors are often opened, allowing flies and mosquitoes in, yet this traps many. Now it's nice.
