Description

STEM Flying Insect Light Trap is an easy, mess-free option for attracting and trapping a variety of flying insects like fruit flies, gnats, mosquitoes, and moths. Use this discreetly-designed fruit fly trap in any indoor room where insects are present, especially around fruit, trash cans, garages and entryways. Enjoy the odor-free, soft blue light technology that traps insects with no chemical insecticides. We crafted our moth and mosquito trap to be people, plant, and pet-friendly* for 24/7 continuous attraction. It’s easy to use and install. Simply remove protective peels, insert the dual-sided adhesive cartridge into the flying insect trap base, plug in to the wall, and position using the customizable 90-degree rotating plug and leave on 24/7. No need to touch any bugs or get your hands sticky. Replace the cartridge every 14 days or when cartridge is full of bugs. This bug trap is compatible with Raid Essentials light trap refills as well.

*when used as directed

DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Use in any room where you see flying insects. For household use only. 1 - Remove the protective peels on both sides of the refill. 2 - Insert the refill into the device base. 3-Plug the trap into a wall socket near common insect hangouts. The trap should be positioned UPRIGHT. When blue light is on, it starts to work. 4. Keep the trap plugged in 24/7. When full, unplug the trap and replace with a new refill. FOR BEST RESULTS: Place traps in areas with heavy flying insect activity and keep plugged in 24/7. Replace cartridge when it’s full of insects.

Q: Does it trap silverfish

submitted by Iris - 2 months ago
  • A: It is advertised for flying insects so I assume no.

    submitted byRyan - 30 days ago
  • A: Great question! This is intended for gnats, mosquitoes, fruit flies and moths. Take care! – Brooklyn, STEM Consumer Care

Q: Are there refills included with this trap?

submitted by Mountain woman - 2 months ago
  • A: I have not purchased it yet but per the picture, it says one device and 1 refill so I assume you are paying for the device and 1 cartridge rather than having to buy the device and get a cartridge.

It has trapped some gnats and fruit flies and I don’t see as many as before. I did buy two plugs to cover more area in the living room and kitchen. I’m glad I took a chance and bought them even with some of the bad reviews.

I put the products in my kitchen and bathroom and it has worked out awesome. When I first moved into my apartment I saw gnats, fruit flies, and other flying bugs. After using STEM, I am flying insect free.

Did not catch a single bug! Saw gnats on the plastic part but never got stuck on the sticky pad. This product did not work for me at all. Currently being used as a nightlight in the kitchen.

I bought as recently went on vacation and forgot about a bag of potatoes on the counter. Now we have fruit flies/gnats all in the kitchen. I’ve had this in the kitchen for 3 days now and not a single gnat has been trapped. My ACV cup with a plastic bag over it has worked better with trapping them… Maybe this works on flies and mosquitoes, but does nothing for gnats.

This is by far the worst “trap.” I bought 5 of these since they were on sale. I have bogs flying all around me. The only thing this does is create a blue light at night to see.

This light is useless. It has a nice glow to it, but that’s all. Fruit flies have landed on everything EXCEPT this trap. What a waste of $20.

My son is extremely allergic to mosquitos and just got out the hospital for 3 days. I ran to target for something anything. I found comfort in this purchase just to see they have caught nothing not even a fruit fly from the kitchen. I hope these people get what they deserve tricking people out of their money. What a waste of $50. Hate to see all these great reviews on a fake product is really sad.

Great for fruit flies

5 out of 5 stars
Steve - 1 month ago
This reviewer received a free sample of this item
I received product reimbursement in exchange for my honest review. I used this insect trap for some fruit flies that had somehow made into my room. I hate fruit flies and this light was supposed to work perfectly to trap fruit flies and delivered on its promise. After only 5 minutes of having it plugged in, I saw a fruit fly circling it and get trapped on the adhesive. I went to go downstairs to eat dinner and when I came back upstairs there were two more fruit flies on it. I'd suggest you turn other lights near this light off for the best for this trap to work. It works great and I'm planning on getting refills for it because I hate insects in my room!!
