Nothing can be quite as frustrating as unwanted insects hanging around while you’re trying to cook in the kitchen. Whether they are lingering by your garbage can or landing amidst the fruit on your countertop, once they’ve arrived, it’s no easy task to eliminate them. Luckily, Amazon shoppers have discovered one useful tool for solving the pesky situation: the Katchy Indoor Insect Trap

The small and stylish device will easily replace your flypaper and sticky traps thanks to its highly effective mode of luring in bugs through UV light. Once the bugs have been attracted by the light, the fan within helps to move them directly onto the sticky paper inside. For best results, place the trap directly near your problem areas at night, and let the light tempt a variety of insects, like mosquitoes, gnats, moths, and fruit flies, inside.

With hundreds of five-star reviews from shoppers, the $40 device has secured the number-one spot for best pest control traps on Amazon. One reviewer noted how handy the trap has been for keeping bugs away from their potted plants, while another remarked on how many fewer mosquito bites they’ve gotten since implementing the trap in their home.

“This is an awesome little gnat catcher,” wrote one shopper. “After trying the bowl of vinegar and banana peel trap with very limited success, I went on Amazon and bought a Katchy. In a week, it caught most of the gnats. I’ve moved the Katchy around from the kitchen to the bedroom, to the bathroom, and back to the kitchen. I don’t review too many things, but this little guy is a winner!”

“Last night was the first night in weeks I did not see a bug, and it also was the first night I had a Katchy sitting guard next to my desk. This morning I opened it up and saw about 20 of these pests stuck to the bottom. Absolutely delightful,” said another reviewer.
