Where Should You Use the Zevo Trap in Your Home?

We designed Zevo to be used in rooms where flying insects enter and where they gather - including garages, covered patios, kitchens, and entryways. You can confidently use the Zevo trap in any room because it is mess and odor free. The key to successfully eliminating flying insects is to a place the Zevo trap in an outlet that is close to where you are having the flying insect problem. We recommend using it in outlets near fruits/vegetables bowls, house plants, trash cans, toilet bowls and litter boxes for best results. If you can't see your trap, insects can't either. So avoid placing it in hidden areas (like behind your TV).
