Users say the Stinger Nosquito Indoor Insect Trap MA06 catches a host of bugs, including a fair number of mosquitoes, and lasts for years. This indoor-only unit uses ultraviolet light and heat to attract and trap the insects. It has a removable tray for easy cleaning and a price that's tough to beat.

The Stinger Nosquito Indoor Insect Trap MA06 (starting at $22, Amazon) impresses a majority of users posting Nosquito reviews on Amazon. They say it has eliminated mosquitoes from their homes, although many note that it works best in the dark with no other lights on. Several users also report that their units have lasted through many seasons, one claiming nearly 10 years of service. Reviews on the Walmart site are a bit more mixed. Although many users seem quite satisfied, saying the trap takes care of their indoor mosquito problems, there are an equal number of unhappy purchasers. Many gripe that bugs can escape and the fan is on the noisy side.

Where to buy

The Stinger Nosquito Indoor Insect Trap MA06 is an exclusively indoor trap that uses ultraviolet light to attract the bugs and a fan to suck them in and trap them. Several users have also found it effective in an outdoor area protected from moisture. Unlike a lot of other traps, this one is designed with a removable tray to make it easier to empty -- although emptying any mosquito trap seems to be challenging for many users. This mosquito trap runs on electricity (as opposed to propane).

We like that the manufacturer recognized that mosquito traps are tough to empty and tried to make the task easier on users with the removable tray. This trap is also among the least expensive of those we researched, and users give it relatively high ratings.
