Frequently Asked Questions

Should the trap be operated 24/7 for it to be effective?

The Ambush works best when left on 24/7 as it is designed to break the breeding cycle. Also it takes a few hours after the sun has risen to dry the mosquitoes out and kill them as there is still moisture in the air at night. However you can spray a little bug spray near the vents in the morning. This will kill the trapped mosquitoes and then the trap can be turned off.

Will it be effective anywhere in Australia?

There are more than 100 species of mosquitoes in Australia, and different mosquitoes are attracted to different things. That's why the Ambush has 5 different attractants, so wherever you go and whatever species of mosquito is harassing you, the Ambush has something to help.

In fact, the Ambush Mosquito Trap has been found to be effective in other countroes across the world.

Is the Ambush effective against sandflies and midges?

The Ambush Mosquito Trap is primarily designed to break the breeding cycle of mosquitoes. Midges and sandflies are attracted by some of the same features as mosquitoes (especially UV light and octenol), so it is equally effective against midges and sandlies. We've received plenty of customer feedback that the Trap is very effective against midges.

Can the trap be used indoors?

Sort of. The Ambush Mosquito Trap is designed to be an outdoor trap. If used indoors, both the UV light and the fan are very effective and more powerful than most indoor traps on the market. However, don't use the mosquito lure when operatig it indoors, and it will not break the breeding cycle of localised mosquito populations.

Is the Trap noisy?

The Ambush Mosquito Trap is very quiet. The only hum comes from the fan. Unless you are sitting hard very close, you will not hear it.

Canberra mosquitoes

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.

Hi Melissa,

We're sorry to hear about your experience. Let's troubleshoot the issue together. Please check the UV bulb and fan for any issues. If needed, we can explore replacement options. Your feedback is crucial, and we appreciate your patience.

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