■High insect-capturing power

The most important feature of Mushipon is its insect-trapping power.
Mushipon’s insect adhesive tape has the highest capturing ability compared to any other insect light trap.
The sticky glue on the surface of the tape has the optimum viscosity to trap insects so that even an insect’s foot touching the tape can be captured.
It can trap even tiny insects less than 1 mm in length.
Compared to peel-off tape (insect trapping tape like double-sided tape), Mushipon’s tape can capture about twice as many insects.

In addition to factory, kitchen, interior, and waterproof types, we can also extend the power cord and change the voltage for overseas markets.
