So as I have reviewed several of these by different makers. I have come to like the ones made like this. They have a sleek design that kind of fit the home more. Yet these are made for the indoor and outdoor, yet the ones made like a latern are made for indoor use. They run really quiet, yet they are really powerful. I do not see much of a difference in the performance of the traps. The UV LED light draws the insects, which are gnats, mosquitos, flies and mostly all flying insects. The fan sucks them in and then you dump the dead insects. The make up of the trap is non toxic which allows it to be ran around children or pets. It is best to be ran up before you want to be in the room and should be hung up I would say mid level in the room. You can really hang it anywhere or sit on the floor. You can even sit in the room when you go in there. You can sit on the porch or patio when you go out there or sit out there. Bottom line I love these gadgets and I have collected quite a few and I will be collecting more. I love the fact that no chemicals are involved. You cannot beat that!
