Outdoor Exterminator Mosquito Trap

Use our Exterminator Mosquito Trap and enjoy backyard picnics, barbecues and warm-weather activities without having to shoo away the buzzing, flying insects that haunt your yard.

Unlike insect systems that require propane and expensive allure refills, the Pestrol Outdoor Exterminator operates economically and is easy to install.

This mosquito control system eliminates West Nile-carrying insects as well as biting flies, Asian beetles, and other flying pests from your outdoor as well as indoor living spaces.

This mosquito trap is safe for indoor use, and it eliminates insects without adding chemicals to the environment or the surrounding areas of usage.

The Pestrol Outdoor Exterminator Mosquito Trap uses a UV fluorescent bulb, which produces warm light to attract insects. The titanium dioxide-coated funnel produces carbon dioxide, which is irresistible to mosquitoes, luring the insects to the powerful yet whisper-quiet vacuum fan. Insects are collected and trapped in the retaining cage away from the area of usage, providing the user safe pest protection and comfortable living quarters.

The Pestrol Exterminator protects up to 120m²

The principle of Capturing Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes, even in the dark, can easily access where a person is by sensing carbon dioxide and temperature that he/she sheds. Also, they react extremely sensitively to near-ultraviolet rays. Using these properties of mosquitoes, Pestrol Outdoor Exterminator can decoy and capture mosquitoes both in bright indoors and in dark outdoors by a tripartite system: HEAT and A CERTAIN WAVELENGTH RAY produced from the mosquito bulbs installed inside, and CARBON DIOXIDE produced when mosquito bulbs are radiated onto TiO2 coat.

Decoyed mosquitoes enter the exterminator through the capture windows on the upperparts, and they are strongly drawn into the capture net, on the lower part. Once they are drawn into the capture net, they cannot fly away upwards due to the strong current of the ventilator. Mosquitoes quickly dehydrate and die. No messy & costly spray.Purifies air through photocatalysis & Sterilises sundry bacteria

Using TiO2, ATTENTION-GETTER of ENVIRONMENT PURIFICATION FIELD. A smoke/insecticide-free mosquito trap that simultaneously purifies the air and exterminates mosquitoes has been specially devised.

It is absolutely harmless on the environment, livestock and pets, for it is insecticide-free.

TiO2 Photocatalyst Explained:

The effect of photocatalysis used in TiO2 pays attention to the field of pro-environment.

Titanium dioxide, also known as titania, is the naturally occurring oxide of titanium. TiO2 was approved as a food additive in 1968 by the USA. At present, TiO2 is used in making chocolates and is a totally harmless material to the human body.

Photocatalysis is a disintegration that uses light-energy with TiO2 as a catalyst. TiO2 is not changed so can be used permanently. In case there is a little ultraviolet ray from the sun or lamp, TiO2 purifies the air and sterilize ill-smelling molecule by the response to organic matter on the surface of TiO2.

Using energy from light, TiO2 creates two oxidation reactants: hydroxyl radicals and superoxide anion which decomposes toxic organic substance by oxidation.


It uses mosquito bulbs and funnels. It can generate carbon dioxide and moisture and heat in the device when it runs. Emulates human breath and decoyed mosquitoes enter inside.
Titanium Dioxide’s photo-catalytic characteristic is greatly enhanced due to the advent of nanotechnology. At nano-scale, not only the surface area of titanium dioxide particle increases dramatically but also it exhibits other effects on optical properties and size quantization.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes the Pestrol Outdoor Exterminator the best choice for controlling mosquito?

The Pestrol Outdoor Exterminator is the leading long-term solution scientifically proven to safely and effectively reduce mosquitoes and other insects. Photocatalyst technology and a special light will help you drastically reduce the mosquito population in your yard.

How soon should my Exterminator Mosquito Trap begin to control mosquitoes?

The trap will begin to catch immediately there is mosquito activity in the area. Female mosquitoes looking for blood will be drawn to the trap and destroyed. The trap will gradually reduce your mosquito population as it attracts and destroys them. It may take 6-8 weeks of use to reduce the mosquito population to the point that you have successfully interrupted the breeding cycle.

Will it harm humans or pets?

No. It is completely safe for humans, animals and the environment. The Pestrol Exterminator mosquito trap does not involve fogging, pesticides, bug zappers, repellents, citronella. Fogging, repellents, and coils, often involve the use of chemicals that have the potential to be dangerous for both humans and the environment. The Pestrol Exterminator mosquito trap uses none of these chemicals methods in the control of mosquito populations. It is 100% environmentally friendly.

How high off the ground do we install it?

The mosquito trap can be placed, fixed, or hung, on any external object, wall, veranda post, tree or ceiling in the area to be protected. It’s most efficient when greater than 1M of the ground. You can hang it by the power cords or the other line. Many people have small children and pets and need to hang the unit head high.

Is the device unit noisy?

The unit only sound is the inbuilt fan, which is equivalent to a computer fan.

Does it attract other insects?

It has been specifically designed to attract and control mosquitoes and sandflies (midges), although it may attract other insects not beneficial to your garden.

It has recently rained will the mosquitoes return?

This is possible if you are contributing to their breeding environment.
The perfect breeding grounds around your home for mosquitoes are any areas where there is stagnant water laying, e.g. Pot plant dishes, fish ponds, old tires etc.
Plants like Bromeliads are another perfect environment for breeding mosquitoes.

How long do I operate the mozzie trap for each day?

For best results run the unit continues to break the breeding cycle. However, using it solely for entertainment purposes is fine. The unit will attract all surround flying insects immediately.

The mosquito is a common flying insect that is found around the world. There are about 2,800 different species of mosquitoes. Mosquitoes can fly about 1 to 1.5 miles per hour (1,6-2,4 km/hour).

The mosquito females drink blood and the nectar of plants; the males only sip plant nectar. When a female bites, she also injects an anticoagulant (anti-clotting chemical) into the prey to keep the victim’s blood flowing. She finds her victims by sight and smell, and also by detecting their warmth. Not all mosquito species bite humans.

The mosquito is often a carrier of diseases, such as malaria, dengue fever, encephalitis, yellow fever, West Nile virus, dog heartworm, and many others. The females, who drink blood, can carry a disease from one animal or human to another as they feed.

    Trap works well. However, I’m still waiting on the spare Exterminator Globe I ordered at the same time and which you said would be sent separately because of a “shipping error”. Please advise when this will be delivered.

    I thought the light would be a bit brighter. It catches them slowly or we dont have many around at the moment.

    Springs on anti-escape flaps are relatively weak. After only several weeks of use, springs do not close allowing live insects to escape once fan is switched off. All else works as promised. Effective in attracting and capturing insects.

    This product has definitely reduced the number of mosquitoes drastically at our home. We only run it at night and have had it about 2 months. We can now sit outside in the evenings without being endlessly bitten and I always see mosquitoes in the trap when I clean it. Sadly some moths get caught too but I have managed to release some of them. Thank you

    The only thing i would have to say is the fan motor needs reviewing as it should not be able to burn out so easily these days.it needs some sort of cut out switch that resets.
    Otherwise a great products highly recomended

    Got the trap a few weeks ago – it seemed to mainly catch moths at first (when looking in the collection chamber). When I opened up the chamber to my surprise, there were several mozzies amongst the moths.
    I’ve only used it for about 2 weeks before I noticed the number mozzies had reduced.

    Great Product, would love a solar version but doubt its possible. i placed mine close to the ground so the ants can do the job of cleaning it out for me.

  33. Gerard R.

    Great product but………after only one month one of our pestrol unit’s fan/motor stopped working. thank goodness we bought two this year! We have been buying these units for quite a few years now as when they are working they are really quite effective. Unfortunately they do occasionally fail. Last time this happened Pestrol replace the whole unit very promptly so that’s a good thing.

    Good product and I have bought 3 but it seemed that the first 1 I received was an older model that had the old style cylindrical fluoro tubes installed. These failed within the first 6 weeks which is very disappointing but I have been offered replacements free of charge which I am currently waiting on.
    Additionally although very good at catching flying bugs particularly moths the unit is not very good at killing them. Most of them are simply trapped in the collection area and when you open it up a lot just fly away. WHAT DOES PESTROL RECOMMEND TO PLACE IN THE TRAP TO KILL THEM???

      David – thanks for your response. Generally, the mosquitoes will die within a few days when they are locked inside the chamber. Make sure you have the flaps set up correctly that when you do turn the unit off, the mosquitoes cannot fly away. You could always spray some pestrol ultra spray or general insect spray in there to kill all the flying insects.

    Catches all sorts of insects, but I do see a reduction of mosquitoes on the porch, so I would say that it is making a difference.

    Made a huge difference in the backyard, we can finally enjoy a bbq without also being food for the mozzies. I find it works much better with the lure though.

    Got the trap – it seemed to only catch bloody moths. So, of course, I complained as I am impatient; they kindly calmed me down and pointed out that amongst all the moths there would be mosquitoes. I opened up the collected insects and to my surprise, there were heaps of mozzies. It took about 2-3 weeks before we all noticed that the mosquitoes had massively reduced. We now love it, so cheers guys.

    I made a phone call and ordered the trap and sonic Mossie Repellant. I wanted to ask about some other things. Thank you for your follow up. The Outdoor Exterminator is working extremely well. I have never seen so many moths caught before. I have a bug zapper but this is amazing. Thank you for your wonderful products.
