Autumn is in full swing, and as you've likely noticed, it comes with unwelcome guests: bugs. Chilly nights make it practically impossible to keep critters — especially flying ones — out of your home. While you could have a fly swatter nearby at all times, that's pretty labor-intensive. Plus, it doesn't always work on spiders and roaches. That's where an indoor bug trap comes in handy. These devices help grab bugs out of the air, without you having to do anything — you know, except make the move to buy one! With that we give you the top-rated Katchy Indoor Insect Trap. It's just $16 (down from $48) for Black Friday when you apply Yahoo's exclusive code 30NOVKATCHY. This code only runs until November 30th, so don't wait!
Why is this a good Black Friday deal?
Aside from the incredible discount that puts the Katchy at almost 70% off, this is the lowest price ever for this gadget.
Why do I need this?
To use the trap, find a spot where you tend to find gnats, mosquitoes or other flying insects, like near a fruit bowl or garbage can. Plug in the Katchy, flip it on and let it go to work. The device uses UV light to attract the bugs, a fan sucks them in and a sticky glue board traps them for good. The whole thing looks much better than hanging glue traps from your ceiling.
The machine is maximally effective when it runs for three days. After that, you'll want to remove the glue trap and put in a new one.
What reviewers say
People rave about how well this works. "I bought this product for my parents since they have a mosquito and fruit fly problem and the amount of bugs this product catches is insane. It’s so impressive that I had to buy one for myself and my mom bought another one for her horse trailer," a five-star fan wrote. "Modern design, so it's not an eyesore. Bugs do not get zapped, so there’s no burn smell like other bug catchers. I would recommend everyone buy this."
Another fan called it "an awesome little machine" and added that they grow orchids "and occasionally I get a flock of fungus gnats. A week of running this machine and most are gone. It is quiet, has a manual or automatic (only in the dark) mode so it can accommodate your needs."
A fellow user called the Katchy "Amazing. I have tons of plants in my house and woke up one day to clouds of fruit flies everywhere. You couldn't eat or make food without them swarming you, they were so bad. It was right around Christmas and we had friends coming over, so I picked these up and hoped they worked as well as the reviews, and thank goodness! They do! Had a relatively pest-free holiday and there's just a few casual stragglers these days."
Just a reminder: Bug season isn't going away anytime soon. So if you hate having mosquitoes, gnats and other flying insects in your house, snag a Katchy for a steal!
