Whether you consider yourself a professional plant parent or just hoping to keep that one potted pothos alive as long as possible, we can all agree: Plants add appeal to any space. They can also attract unwanted houseguests. (No, we’re not referring to your in-laws.) Gnats, fruit flies, moths, mosquitoes and all manner of flying pests are drawn to many types of houseplants, especially in the hot and humid summer months.
Luckily, there’s a new insecticide-free solution that’s both people and pet-friendly (and decor-friendly, more on that later) when used as directed. The Raid Essentials Light Trap uses only light to attract insects, then captures them with an adhesive backing. When the backing is full, just remove, toss and replace with a refill.
