mosquito trap review

From having used my Daughter-in-law's ambush mosquito trap, I know it works well. On our family camping trip (3 families) we used her's. We usually are inundated with yellow jackets and flies during the day, and mosquitoes in the evening. We were very pleased to only have a few yellow jackets and flies, and fewer mosquitos!. As we only have a few of those right now, I have not tried the one I just purchased, but will be going south for the winter, and will be using it then.

The Ambush Mosquito Trap

mosquito trap review

Hello. I will give my review on experience with the one my DIL let us borrow. It worked great. Reduced the amount of hornets and flies during the day, and mosquitos in the evening on our family camping trip. I ordered one for us, and it arrived well packaged. I will not set it up for use for about a month, as where I am now there is very few mosquitos, but as I will be traveling south for the winter it will get some use then, as from experience, I know there will be some then!

It is amazing

This item is very effective in getting rid of mosquitos. Thank you for the chance to use this product

Mozzie death

This product works really well, the CO2 generator lasts for quite some time - citric acid and sodium bicarbonate make for a harmless mix. Simple to set up but works extremely well.
Also strongly recommend the indoor trap, it is very effective.

Well worth the money

I've had the Ambush Mosquito Trap a bit over 2 months and have been really impressed. The booster definitely made a difference for me, after about 4 weeks we started seeing a difference in the number of mozzies. Unit is well made and the after sales support has been great.

Ambush mosquito trap

Not only is this mosquito trap effective, it looks cool with the polished steel co2 cylinder! Definitely made a big impact on our mosquito problems.

NOT many mossies trapped

Its cleaned up the moth population but I see few mosquitoes in it.
I really need another week of drizzling rain to activate more mosquitoes to tell if they are around. Numbers have fallen but suspect mainly due to drier weather.

Great Product

Having tried a number of other UV type traps with very limited success I was somewhat reluctant to outlay a further $249.00. After trying the Ambush Mosquito Trap I can honestly say that it is worth every cent and more, with amazing results right from the start.

Bought recently and seems to be working fine

We bought this trap recently after a relative recommended it to us. It is easy to assemble and seems to be working fine. It does catch a lot of moths but mozzies too.

big reduction in mozzies and other bities

We have seen a big reduction in these pests. I was a bit sceptical at first with just the CO2 generator, but it works well. The indoor device also works well.

Doesn’t catch mosquitoes

Hi - My Ambush Mosquito trap doesn’t seem to catch mosquitoes - I’ve caught lots of moths and other things, but no mosquitoes despite there being LOADS of those around!!

Ambush inside and out.

We have both the inside and outside traps.
The inside ones are amazing. Can’t say anything negative about them yet, only been about a month.
The outside traps, as we leave near salt air, the tray the insects collect in are putting/rusting very quickly.
Others wise the traps do a wonder job.

We appreciate your review, Rachel! We'd like to send you an extra catch container. Should I send it to the address on file?

Great Product that Works

As part of a body corporate I have encouraged multiple owners to purchase this product. The committee has bought several units to assist in some of our large common areas

Disappointed with he indoor trap as it does not turn off and on as indicated.

Try toggling the switches on the top of the trap. Thanks!

Ambush mosquito traps

I am extremely happy with the effectiveness of my indoor and the outdoor appliances. So good not to use sprays inside the house!

Not Convinced

We have had the Ambush mosquito trap running for a bout 2 months now and we have noticed a reduction in the number of mosquitoes. However, they certainly have not been eliminated. The images on the website of a basket full of mosquitoes is deliberately misleading. The majority of bodies I clean out each afternoon are moths and other small bugs.
I am not convinced if the Ambush mosquito trap is actually getting rid of the mosquitoes or whether it because we have had a very cool summer this year.

Quality product that’s working well so far

Fast delivery from order ( 3 days) . I was Very impressed with quality of construction and components out of the box. Instructions were easy to follow and additional info provided on pest species was helpful. I have been using for 6 weeks ( Jan/Feb) when we have high mosquito and midge activity from nearby bush land. We generally don’t go down the garden without protective sprays. Emptying the sieve shows high kill numbers for pests, but quite a lot of collateral impact on moths - not all of which are problem species. Mosquito numbers have dropped, but still enough to cause problems so far ( we’ve had plenty of rain over last 6 weeks too). Due to size of garden area and mutiple potential sources of pests, I will need to relocate the unit a couple of times to see if we get more impact. 4* so far due to this aspect, but I’ve no doubt it is effective at killing mosquitos.


Order delivered in 3 days to country NSW. Beautifully packaged. first night i estimate we collected around 2000 mosquitos...yes its a plague after the floods. 2nd night about 1500..and the whole area already feels much reduced in mozzie menace after just 2 days!. 8 of us working outdoors alongside a pond...it is a blessed relief. Great product comparable to a much bigger more expensive US version i used 15 years ago. This is much neater all round.

Feel cheated, product not delivered

I ordered and paid ($87.00) for the Ambush Mosquito trap but you sent me only the Ambush Sticky Paper. Where is rest of the product?
I have

They were shipped separately. I hope you've received your Ambush Trap.

Not catching mosquitoes

Hi, I'm really surprised, mosquitoes are rife here in Byron Bay at the moment due to the rain and the trap is only catching moths! I've run it for a goid month now... what am i doing wrong?

We'd love to troubleshoot your Ambush Mosquito Trap.

good product

We purchased this trap a year ago, after we realised that our daughter has allergic reactions to mozzie bites. It has definitely reduced our mosquitoes number! However, there has still been some around, especially after rainfalls. Not sure if it's possible to completely get rid of them in an area known to be infested!

working well

our trap has been going for a month now and we seeing a real drop in the mozzie population. It takes a few weeks and to notice the change.
Our problem is bug coming from neighboring properties and the range of this unit seem to be working. Even with recent humidity and rain the mozzies are way less present and we can be outside. Early days, but a great start

Working great so far

Had it for a month now. Way less midgies. Easy set up. No fuss. Only thing is I think it catches a few too many moths, but you can’t have it all.

Works really well

Can now sit outside with not having to put on any mozzy spray
