The disposable cartridge snaps onto the device base and, once it's plugged-in, the blue/UV lights from the device base shines up into the cartridge, creating a blue glow that attracts house flies, fruit flies & gnats. The insects get stuck on the strong adhesive pad (which faces the wall not the room!) which you can easily remove & dispose of.

Zevo works especially well in kitchens, dining rooms, bathrooms, garages, bedrooms, enclosed patios, and near entryways or doors.

Arrow Is there anywhere you should NOT keep your trap plugged in? Any competing lights/spaces to avoid?

Avoid placing it next to tv or computer screens or in areas where furniture, curtains or corners may obstruct the insect from finding its way to the trap itself.If you can't see Zevo, insects can't see Zevo either.

Arrow Help! My Zevo trap isn't catching flying insects. What do I do?

Try placing traps in outlets that are easily accessed by flying insects. If you can't see Zevo, insects can't see Zevo either. Make sure your Zevo Flying Insect Trap isn't being blocked by furniture, curtains or corners that may obstruct the insect from finding its way to the trap itself. Instead of plugging Zevo behind a door, we recommend plugging it in front of the door or on the wall opposite the door. For larger sized rooms, we suggest using 2 or more traps. If you've followed these tips and your trap is still not catching flying insects, reach out to our customer service team and we'll be happy to help.

Arrow How long does it take until you start seeing bugs?
