Fend Flying Insect Trap Review
At first glance, Fend looks like an attractive plug-in night light or air freshener. It’s only upon closer examination that its function as an insect trap becomes apparent.
Fend plugs into a wall outlet and emits light which attracts flying insects. Those bugs then stick to the included adhesive similar to that of fly paper. Once the trap is full, you merely discard the cartridge and insert another into the plug-in.
While there are a number of other plug-in repellent devices on the market (see below), few offer the same design which combines a soft glow with an adhesive insect paper. Most plug ins are ultrasonic – a controversial and unproven technology – or zappers that can be loud and dispense a dead bug “mist.”
You could certainly invest in some inexpensive fly paper placed strategically near a nightlight, but that option may not be as aesthetically pleasing as the design offered by Fend. Your guests will most likely believe Fend is an air freshener unless they look closely.
Fend is sold with one plug-in and two disposable cartridges and it doesn’t appear to be available in stores, meaning you can’t continue to purchases refill cartridges locally. Once local availability occurs, we think consumers will more likely to give Fend a try.
Keep in mind that Fend is only designed for flying bugs, meaning roaches and ants will not be affected by this device.
Fend may not be the most inexpensive option for removing unwanted flying pests in the home, but it is perhaps one of the most elegant. We hope it becomes available in stores, as it certainly has a place among competing products using different technologies.
There are countless plug-in insect products. These most commonly include zappers and ultrasonic repellents. Perhaps the closest to Fend is the Fly Web Fly Light Fly Trap, which costs about $30 and holds about a 4 star rating.
