Rate this product

Master Trap is a trap for bug that otherwise annoy or attack you when you are outside. With super bright LED light, it draws bugs in from a wider area and prevents you from being eaten alive when you are outside. Protect yourself against stink bugs, hornets, moths, Asian beetles, biting flies, wasps, mosquitos, and more. You can place it anywhere in your yard or inside of your home and keep bugs from flying into open windows or doors.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Master Trap is $39.99 plus $14.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Master Trap at the discounted price of only $14.99 for a total price of $69.97. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at buymastertrap.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Master Trap and has taken down the website. Master Trap may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

Features

  • Protects a Large Space

    The Master Trap can protect up to ½ acre of space.

  • Versatile

    This unit is so versatile that you can sit it anywhere like a lantern, or mount it around your yard, even hang it somewhere.

  • Inexpensive Operation

    Durable, this device uses less than 10% of the energy that a regular 40 watt light bulb would use so you get to enjoy protection all year round for pennies per day. Compared to some of the more expensive ways to prevent bugs, this one is relatively affordable.

  • Weatherproof

    This unit is weatherproof, so you can hang it outside no matter the conditions and still enjoy its benefits. Rain does not always stop bugs, nor does wind. So get ready and protect yourself against invasions no matter the weather.

Pros

  • Indoors or Outdoors

    Master Trap can be used inside or outside. You can rely on it to guard your back yard, your patio, even stand guard against any open windows or doors so that your friends and family are safe. Place it next to the pool when your little ones are swimming, or near a seating area when you are trying to dine outside. If you are outside playing, hand this nearby so that you are safe.

  • Discreet

    This unit is easy to hide if you wanted to, keeping it out of sight for many of the guests or family you have at home while not impeding its effectiveness. Due to its size and the limited noise it makes, you can set it off to the side of a patio or pool and no guests will even notice it is there.

Cons

  • Needs Power

    The power source for this unit is from electricity. So you have to power it somehow by plugging it in somehow. When you are out and about camping or on the road, you might not have a place to plug it in which renders it useless. Obviously it is a place item to have around your home so long as you have nearby outlets and power sources.

  • Carbon Dioxide

    One of the issues here is that the unit produces carbon dioxide. There is no information on the measure of carbon dioxide it uses, but obviously the more often you use the unit, the more carbon dioxide you are putting out into the world. This is not necessarily a good thing and while it certainly gives you the convenience of not being attacked by bugs, it also means more carbon dioxide is being emitted into the air. Mother nature suffers the most from this.

  • Not 100%

    Understand that this unit is effective at drawing in some bugs, to be sure. However, that does not mean that it will prevent everyone from being attacked, ever. You need to understand that you are still breathing out carbon dioxide yourself, so the bugs might still be lured to that. The lights and carbon dioxide from this lantern make it more appealing than yourself, but bugs can still just accidentally run into you and then bite.

How It Works

Master Trap is an electronic device that will attract mosquitos or flying insects, never to let them out again. Rather than zapping them dead, like other devices, this one just lures them and secures them. Emitting an ultra-violet blue light, it generates heat and produces carbon dioxide. This carbon dioxide is an important factor in the unit because it is what we exhale when breathing that attracts the bugs. So, each time you exhale, the mosquitos are attracted to the carbon dioxide, and to you. Said unit produces that same carbon dioxide which means the bugs are drawn toward that instead of you. Moreover, they are drawn into the light, where the high suction and whisper quiet vacuum sucks them into the holding chamber. Once inside the holding chamber, there is no way for them to get out.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Set up

    Set the unit up where you want it to be, but make sure it can reach a plug.

  2. Plug it in

    Then plug it in and turn it on.

  3. Enjoy

    Once it is on you will hear the slight whirring sound as it begins to work. Turn it off when you are done or no longer need it.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Store

    Even though the unit is weatherproof, you should still avoid leaving it outdoors in bad weather for an extended period of time. When not in use, bring it indoors and store it somewhere like a garden shed or garage. Doing so will prolong the lifespan of the unit for you.

  2. Set up Along Perimeter

    If you have a large yard, one of the things you can do is set this up along the perimeter, with each lantern placed at different ends of your home. Doing so will give you the widest coverage and prevent bugs from bothering you no matter where in your yard you might be.

  3. Gardening

    Don't forget to use this when you are just out in the yard working. Most people are cognizant of bugs when they have guests or are playing outside. While it is true that the female mosquitos, the ones whose bite can carry infection, come out around dawn and dusk, that does not mean other bugs are not out all day. So if you are out in the yard, make sure you plug this in and keep the bugs out of your way.

How it's Different from Competitors

This unit differs from others on the market insofar as it has the vacuum feature. There are comparable products which are battery powered or use an outlet, each of which have either the lights or the smells or a combination. However, this is one of the few on the market with the vacuum suction. Others on the market will trap, stick, or kill the insects upon contact, but this one keeps them stuck inside. Eventually they will die from lack of food or water. It is also one of the only ones on the market that produces the carbon dioxide on its own to draw them away from you.
