Specially designed for all-weather use.
We all appreciate the dangers of mosquitoes in New Zealand, however, now we have a product that can take an extra step to assist with the fight. Our Pestrol Mosquito Eater – Mosquito Killer Trap is used by thousands of Kiwi’s nationwide and does exactly that.
This trap has 4-way protection and that is why this trap is extremely popular with customers:
- A UF fluorescent bulb generates a warm light which attracts flying insects towards the mosquito trap.
- Our second advantage is our strongly coated surface that produces Tio2 titanium dioxide. This process produces small quantities of CO2, the same gas we exhale that attracts the female mosquito, the one that bites us.
- This is our only trap that users a water tray around the trap, this attracts mosquitoes for laying eggs.
- Finally the very powerful, yet whisper-quiet vacuum fan that collects all the insects and keeps them in the holding chamber, where they will dehydrate and die FAST!
The Home Mosquito Killer Trap attracts and kills flying insects such as:
- Sand Flies
- Biting Flies
- Asian Beetles
- Yellow Jackets

Do mosquito traps work?
Pestrol has been in business close to 20 years, over which time we have sold literally 10’s of thousands of mosquito traps. Mosquito traps are a great way of breaking the breeding cycle and eliminating mosquitoes in and around your property. Pestrol prides itself on using chemical-free products and our mosquito traps use the power of warm light and many other mosquito attracting technologies to bring the mosquitoes close to the machine, from where they get sucked down into a dry storage chamber and die.
How do I trap mosquitoes in my house?
Pestrol has a range of indoor mosquito traps to assist with reducing the annoyance of getting bitten indoors or not sleeping due to the sound of mosquitoes buzzing around our heads. Check out the Assassin Mosquito Trap and also our Sleep Easy Trap.
Does UV light attract mosquitoes?
UV light attracts mosquitoes in a variety of ways. Firstly the frequency that the light produces attracts mosquitoes towards the light source, secondly, the warmth that is created replicates humans and this further is used as an attractant to get the mosquitoes away from us and towards the mosquito trap.
How long has the Mosquito Eater Mosquito Trap been on the market in NZ?
The Mosquito Eater is the newest edition to our outdoor range of mosquito control products. Having been released in October 2019, we believe that with the increased feature of the water tray around the top of the unit, this will assist with attracting more mosquitoes that are looking for water to breed. Our team in the office tested the trap last summer and as a result, this is why we have added it to our range.
Is the Mosquito Eater trap noisy?
No, just a small computer like fan that is used to create downdraft to suck mosquitoes into the dry storage chamber, from where they cannot escape and the dehydrate and die.
How long does it take for the Mozzie Eater trap to work?
Unfortunately, this is not an immediate solution. That is, you can’t just turn the light on and all the mosquitoes in the area are gone. This process is about elimination over time and breaking the breeding cycle. You will find that you will have a noticeable difference after the first week, but complete reduction within 3-4 weeks. You can increase your mosquito trap catching ability by using the optional attractant to place in the water. This acts as a supercharging effect and mosquitoes are drawn to the irresistible lure and many more mosquitoes are caught and trapped inside the mosquito trap.
Is it easy to set up the Mosquito Eater Trap?
Yes, literally take it out of the box, connect the stand to the base in 3 easy steps, find a powerpoint and switch it on.
Where should I place the Mosquito Eater?
Place the mozzie trap away from any other competing light, preferably in a cooler, shaded area. We recommend moving it at least 20 feet from your preferred outdoor sitting or dining areas.
What other insects does it control other than mosquitoes?
The Mosquito Eater Mozzie Trap attracts and kills many flying insects including mosquitoes, biting flies, Asian beetles, no see-ums, wasps, hornets, moths, stink bugs, and more. The Mosquito Killer Trap will not catch butterflies, honeybees or bumblebees as they are not attracted to CO2 or light.
Is it safe to use around my family and pets?
Yes, as this trap is chemical-free, it is safe to use around your family and pets. This product also has all the electrical approvals for Australia and NZ standards.
