WARNING, When using electric appliances, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:
– To disconnect, turn all controls to the off (“O”) position, then remove plug from outlet.
– Unplug from outlet when not in use and before servicing or cleaning.
– To reduce the risk of electrical shock, do not put appliance in water or other liquid.
– This appliance is provided with double insulation. Use only identical replacement parts.
See instructions for Servicing of Double-Insulated Appliances.
Instructions for double-insulated, cord-connected Appliances:
In a double-insulated appliance, two systems of insulation are provided instead of grounding. No grounding means is provided
on a double-insulated appliance, nor should a means for grounding be added to the appliance. Servicing of a double-insulated
appliance requires extreme care and knowledge of the system, and should be done only by qualified service personnel.
Replacement parts for a double-insulated appliance must be identical to those parts in the appliance.
Please read these instructions before using the DYNATRAP® Insect Trap and keep for future reference.

Flying insects are attracted to the unit by UV light and CO2 that
is generated by the photo-catalysis between the UV lamps and
special TiO2 coating. Additionally, small holes in the cover of the
unit allow rain water to fill the water tray, further attracting
mosquitos. The fan then pulls the insects into the screened base,
trapping them until they dehydrate and die. The base can be
removed, allowing the contents to be periodically emptied into
the trash. The see-through screen shows the insects trapped in the
compartment, alerting you when the net needs to be emptied.
