Mosclean

HOME APPLIANCE

$88

Unlike traditional mosquito traps that use harmful chemical sprays or a high-voltage metal grid, the Mosclean is a safer and more environmentally friendly version.

Using ultra-violet LEDs with an optimised light wavelength and a special coating that produces carbon dioxide (as bait) through a photo-catalytic reaction, the Mosclean is said to attract and kill three times more mosquitoes than conventional traps in lab tests.
