The ONLY Trap that does what it claims.

We purchased this trap with some skepticism but true to its claims and the reviews of others, the Ambush Trap works. We back onto a conservation park and have struggled with mozzies and midges for years. Not any longer. Works like a charm. Finally we can sit outside and enjoy our beautiful outlook without being attacked by mozzies and midges. Happy days 🫶

The trap is not really effective in dealing with the many mosquitoes coming from their bush hides in our back yard. Indeed many other insects caught but not much in the way of mosquitoes

Disappointing experience

My mosquito trap worked great for 6 months and then something in it must have shorted. A lot of small moths were regularly being trapped. For the money, I expected it to work for longer. It was placed outdoors under shelter.

Caught Everything not just Mozzies

Unfortunately it caught way more beneficial insects than mozzies so it’s a no from me. Service was fine.

Bought their mosquito trap a couple of years ago thought the catch container was an upgrade as the soft material one is hard to get on and falls off very easily. Unfortunately they have changed sizes and this doesn't fit. Tried emailing to ask for a refund or to buy an adapter but no responses.

So far so good! We have seen a marked reduction in mosquitoes since setting up the trap a couple of weeks ago.

With all the flooding/ stagnant water in the area we were inundated with mozzies.
Just wow ... can't believe how many mozzie we caught in just the first week.

Just 2 weeks in and we can finally go back outside again. More than impressed. Ordered a second one for my parents house .
Thanks team. Great product easy to use/ set up.


Not one mozzie so far this season. Unbelievably good product!
We have ‘reclaimed our Summer’.
One slight issue- a lot of moths get caught in the trap. Would some sort of filter prevent this?

spare parts

Thank you for your feedback. You may get the bulb here:
The bait will be available soon, I will send you an email once it's available online.

Ambush Indoor Insect Trap
Very efficient

Nice little unit and not too noisy, very effective in trapping mosquitoes and all sorts of insects including moths (less food for my frog), sticky paper worked well and was full of insects after about 10 days and needed replacing

Works a treat

Found it excellent
Works really great

Have been using Ambush now since early December and have seen very few mossies since, so it's doing what it is advertised to do. Only negatives are to do with the insect catching 'net' and sticky pads. Website images show a solid canister to catch the insects, but my model has a very flimsy net that already has holes in it and is difficult to manipulate into place with a sticky pad inside. The sticky pads also completely curl up very quickly offering less surface area to catch bugs. But even given these few issues, still works well.

Great device!

Has really helped deal with the mozzies on my 780m2 property. Have placed it under my house and it works brilliantly.

Does the job!

Thankfully my mosquito problem is finally solved. This is an excellent product

It works!

For years we could not use our back garden in the evening without being bitten by mosquitoes. Now that we have been running the Ambush Mosquito Trap for a few months there are no mosquitoes to be found.

This trap is amazing!! We live on the water and it removes all signs of midges

We hesitated buying this due to the price but it has been priceless, our son no longer gets bitten inside and as he is allergic to midgees this has been a game changer for us. Buying the refills is easy and we use about 1 packet a month

Barely working

In 3 weeks we caught one mossy. I manually killed 25 myself as the trap did get them. It also is pretty noisey. We are sitting it on the ground. Not sure if this is part of the problem in it not working very well.

Ambush Indoor Insect Trap
works pretty well I think

I do not go outside of my house to sit or hang out in the yard, so I wanted this device for inside. I use it in my bedroom at night and it seems to be effective but when I open it there are not a lot of dead mozzies- in fact I don't see any dead mozzies. So not sure if it works or not. Very easy ordering process and responsive customer service when I had a question. Seeing as I will never be using this device outside I am not sure if I can recommend it. I want a device for INSIDE. This one seems to be doing something but the verdict is still out for me. It is very hard to find devices for INSIDE use and I wish someone would do this.

A good trap

We regard Ambush Mossie trap as a useful tool to keep the number of bites at bay. Recently we had to replace the fan and light and found that the instructions were very clear, and made it an easy task. One thing that we would like is a return to the original cartridge baited, as the last lot we received only last a month, not 3 months, and are made by Kelly & Co, Not Ambush. It is easy to forget to change these until we have been bitten again.
