Works much better than soapy water filled pie pans
I bought these on the tail end of a bad flea outbreak. Soapy water filled pie tins are all over and they catch some fleas by their random movement. Makes a difference, but they can't be everywhere or they get bumped, and spill. Plus have to be refilled.
These traps, even right next to a pie pan, will catch more. It originally seemed just slightly better than a pie pan, but over time it seems like smaller fleas are more attracted to this, probably from the warmth. Although it also does maybe act like an incubator because I once saw a flea on top of one near the sofa, so sat down to try to get it. 4 fleas jumped on my legs, as if they were hanging around a camp fire until I showed up. I assume they were in the area from the heat and thought I was a better target than the trap. I had a soapy water filled container nearby to throw them in, so took care of them. The trap itself only gets maybe 2 per day. In a more quiet area, this trap is doing much better. Like 10 new fleas per day. It is slightly cooler there since it is darker and near a window. I think the warmth accelerates the life cycle and is very attractive to newly hatched fleas. I have a pie pan several inches away and it has only caught 2 in several days. So the trap is doing well by comparison.
I don't believe there's any scent to this at all. I tried searching before for scents that attract fleas to get them to the pie pans, and there doesn't seem to be, other than carbon dioxide and some scents mammals put out. Maybe these people have found something that does, but I doubt it is more than the heat and light from the bulb.
One of the two that I ordered came in a crushed box and 2 legs were broken and another very bent. The shipping box was fine so I think it was damaged in the warehouse. Particularly since the pack of disks was inside the broken unit, but sitting in the box of the pristine one. It is actually larger than the bottom while in the bag, so I think is normally packed in the box like the pristine one, and not crammed into the unit, like the broken one. Since it wasn't worth the trouble to box back up and replace, I just taped the legs and put it to use.

Fleas love me. If there is a flea in the house, it will find me, and I've tried just about everything to get rid of them. This is doing a great job of attracting and trapping those little buggers. Looks like they have a little flea party every night. The bulb burned out after just a few days, sometimes that happens with bulbs. I'm keeping the trap and getting new bulbs. Grabbed a bulb out a an old night light in the mean time, and it's back in action. I'd advise having a few 7W incandescent bulbs around to avoid down time.

Caught the pesky fleas -- and about 10 other species of insects, too!
My poor dad kept getting eaten alive by fleas and I was becoming concerned that he was going to develop an infection from the allergic reaction he was having from all the scratching. I had no clue where the fleas were coming from, because we do not have any furry animals in the house. I bought this product as a last resort, because logically, it really should work quite well as a model -- you have a pheromone based adhesive, the warmth, and the light to attract the little critters. Within 48 hours, I caught about 20 fleas, and shockingly, we found some other "instigators" that may have been causing an allergic reaction on his skin, ranging from two species of baby roaches, along with a few houseflies, fruit flies, flour moths, two species of ants, and tiny brown recluse spiders. (We live very rural, so I am not too shocked about the diversity of these visitors!) We never saw these with our naked eye as we went about our business during the day, so it was horrible yet satisfying to see where the problems were coming from. Needless to say, his itching has totally stopped, his skin has healed, and we are flea-free yet again. Great product, worth every penny. Thank you so much, Victor!

I had my doubts, but this thing works! The fleas were just so bad this year and the regular things I would do with my pets just weren't working. But I didn't want to bombard them with more chemicals, so trying to find non chemical alternatives that worked was challenging. So I added two of these to my home, one upstairs and one downstairs. It's amazing how many fleas it has killed...so gross. But it's working and that's all that matters :)

Problem with light on some units
They work if the light will stay on. They short out, burn out after a few days. The electrical part is poorly made. Have replaced bulbs over and over again. Not all units have this problem, just some. Quality control should be better. The ones that work do a good job, catch lots of fleas. Hope this helps.

Great flea trap.
I must admit that I was skeptical about this device when I ordered three of them but they do really work. We are not yet completely flea free but we have trapped hundreds with the three we have purchased. I do recommend them.

Check your flea population
This was used as an environment test to see if I needed Flea action. It has served me well. I had to bomb with Precor and this tells me when.

You need this
Bought this for my grandmother to help with her flea problem. As soon as she set up the device and put it out, she caught 15 fleas. It is very sticky and actually works!
