You know, one of the reasons I chose my current apartment is that it is set around a gorgeous lake and pond. What I failed to think about was the type of insects I’d have to deal with on a daily basis. I am a city girl at heart, and I don’t like dealing with flying insects. Every day I look totally silly as I swat around my kitchen and living room trying to get rid of gnats, mosquitoes, fruit flies and any other random thing that comes in my home. It’s a really big problem lately, and I’ve tried EVERYTHING.
We’re in and out of our apartment a lot from going to work, to taking Pee Wee out on walks, and throwing the trash out daily to unsuccessfully try to combat this problem. So, I’m taking a slight departure from home decor to gush about the Zevo Flying Insect Trap.
Zevo is an affordable, fabulous new product that uses no chemical insecticides to attract and trap flying insects. For me, that is so important because of Pee Wee. We make it a priority to buy scent free, environmentally friendly products that won’t harm us or our dog. This solution is worry free for me and my family.
Each Zevo Starter Kit comes with the main trap and two cartridges, and each cartridge lasts about 30-45 days. It’s recommended that you plug these in around problem areas in your home. For us, that was the kitchen and living room/patio door area. Other rooms/areas could be foyer, garage, laundry room or mudroom. Really anywhere you have an outlet that is visible (not behind furniture) would work since the bugs have to “see” the blue UV light to be attracted to it.
And honestly, the Zevo is also awesome because of the blue UV light. Here’s the one I have in the kitchen right above the sink and garbage disposal, which is also near our kitchen trash can. This is when I left for work in the morning…
And when I came home 10 hours later there were about 5-6 gnats trapped on there and a small fly, which is impressive for a few hours. I am confident as the Zevo stays plugged in we’ll trap more and help reduce and eliminate the number of gnats over the next few weeks. I sharpened and increased the contrast so you can see them a bit easier.
In the living room, I have it set-up to help catch the ones that come in from the front door and the patio door. So far no critters have taken the plunge into that blue light, so if I don’t see any in the next few days, I may move it closer to the front door and see if that’s better. They’re super easy to move around, and some trial and error is needed with placement in larger/open areas. And I love that they just kind of blend in and don’t draw too much attention.
And here’s a bit of a darker photo to show you all the blue light, which is the all natural key to attracting the insects. Once the cartridge is full, just toss it in the trash and snap on a new cartridge. They do stay plugged in 24/7, so it’s always working hard for you.
I will definitely stick with Zevo at the new house if the results continue. If you’d like to read more reviews, learn more about why/how Zevo works (and why it’s a safe option for your home with pets/kids), or buy your own starter kit for less than $13, you can head to the Zevo website. Also, they sell both the starter kits and refills online at Home Depot.
