Summer is right around the corner, folks, and with it comes weekend barbecues, sunny beach days, delicious poolside cocktails, and (unfortunately) bugs — lots of them. From mosquitoes and fruit flies to gnats, horseflies, and more, if you’re not prepared, summer insects can absolutely rain on your parade. Thankfully, plenty of products on the market can help you tackle the insect situation outside, so your picnics, cookouts, and evenings spent on the porch aren’t ruined by a swarm of mosquitos. However, when bugs get inside your house, you’ve got to pull out the big guns. I’m not talking about just getting a dollar store swatter, either — as someone who can’t stand having unwelcome guests flying and buzzing around their home, I’ll be stocking up on these Safer Brand Home Indoor Plug-in Fly Traps. They’re effective, have great reviews, and Amazon shoppers bought more than 30,000 of these bad boys last month alone.

What Is the Safer Brand Home Indoor Fly Trap?

This safe, easy-to-use indoor fly trap is perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, and pretty much anywhere else in your house that has an outlet. All you have to do is plug it in and walk away while it does all the hard work for you. The trap starts working immediately to attract, trap, and kill flies, fruit flies, moths, gnats, and more pesky pests. It’s also pet- and kid-safe, and uses no chemical insecticides. Simply peel off the sticker on the trap and let the UV LED light naturally attract flying insects to the trap. The best part? The trapped insects are hidden away on the back of the glue card, so you don’t have to worry about unsightly bugs in your home.

What Amazon Shoppers Are Saying

Average Rating: 4.3/5

“After about a week of having this Safer Home indoor flytrap plugged in, I’ve been pretty impressed with its effectiveness at catching various flying insects around my home. For a compact and chemical-free device, it packs a punch.” — Ryan K 

“Great product! I had a minor infestation of gnats in my kitchen last year. As soon as I saw some flying around this year I did some comparing and decided on purchasing this product. It is effective as well as reasonably priced. The number of gnats and small flies it has trapped has been alarming, to say the least. I hardly have any flying around now, and I am extremely happy. It also has a pleasant glow and is nice to have as a night-light. I am going to purchase a second one for my bathroom.” — NoCalGal

“First, the price. Two for less than the price of one at the box store. Second, my wife loves to have the windows open as soon as the temps allow it. She was getting bit at night in bed, but we never heard the telltale bbbbzzzz of mosquitoes. Screens are good for bigger bugs, but these were the “ no-see-um” variety. Placed one of these in an outlet away from the bed. No more bites and look at the tiny little buggers that the screen couldn’t keep out! This is one week’s worth. Worth every penny, I now have four spaced out through the house and the windows open!” — General299

So, if you’re sick and tired of flying pests buzzing around the house, snag this two-pack of Safer Brand Home Indoor Fly Trap and kiss indoor insects goodbye. (Or … maybe don’t kiss them.)
