The Katchy Indoor Insect Trap is a modern and portable device that helps combat insect infestations. It is an excellent indoor insect trap with an intelligent way of catching tiny flying pests. These small insects include gnats, mosquitoes, fruit flies, drain flies, and other small flying insects.

This small device features triple-trapping power electricity that traps only tiny insects. It combines a sticky pad, UV light, and a fan that sucks insects into the trap. It works best when placed in an infested area near insect-ridden fruits, plants, or trash bins. Katchy indoor insect traps can also be paired with apple cider vinegar to catch fruit flies. They have a removable fruit fly trap glue board and an automatic fruit fly killer.

This super-effective mosquito killer functions without a zapper. With the Katchy insect trap, you can say goodbye to ugly traps.

How to use the Katchy Indoor Insect Trap

The Katchy insect trap offers both manual and automatic modes. The automatic mode makes the Katchy trap super easy to use. All you need to do is plug it in and set it to automatic mode. It also comes with a UV light sensor that allows it to come on automatically when other lights go off. This UV light enables the Katchy to trap and attract bugs and other insects.

The Katchy Indoor Insect Trap covers a large area and works best in the dark. Its triple trapping system uses UV light to attract insects into its fan. This fan sucks insects down into the trap. A glue trap at the bottom of the fan holds them in place, where they die eventually. Also, because the fan is located atop the glue trap, it prevents the insects from flying out.

The fan in the Katchy insect trap is the only moving part of this device, and it runs quietly. It features two different fan speed settings – the standard and the low speed. This quiet fan doesn’t require so much light to function. It requires just enough light to keep it rolling in one direction.

The Katchy Indoor Insect Trap is a chemical-free, portable, and eco-friendly device. It uses only the glue trapping method. This chemical-free nature also means that it will likely not attract larger insects.

How to clean the Katchy Indoor Insect Trap

The glue trap holds down all the captured insects but does not require frequent cleaning. You need to monitor the trap and dispose of it when it is full.

Cleaning the Katchy Indoor Insect Trap is quite easy. It opens up with the release button on the side of the insect-killing device. Then, you can empty the glue trap boards into the trash bin and replace them with a new glue board.
