Home / Zevo Quick-Start Guide

We've talked to many used Zevo users and compiled best practices for using our trap for optimal results. 

Where to Use Zevo For Best Results

Best Rooms:

  • Use in Garages, Covered Porches, Entryways, Kitchens - Rooms where flying insects enter and where they gather. Always be sure to place Zevo where you frequently see insects.
  • Place in moderate sized rooms (10'x10" or 12'x12') or consider using multiple devices in large rooms with open floor plans.
  • Use in rooms where you commonly open doors and windows.
Best Locations Within a Room:
  • Position in outlets near fruits/vegetables bowls, house plants, trash cans, toilet bowls and litter boxes. Places that are close to common insect areas.
  • Place in highly visible areas so it's easy for insects to discover.
  • Try other locations and outlets if Zevo isn't catching flying insects. 

Use Zevo Day And Night:

  • Turn off competing lights and lamps near Zevo overnight. When Zevo is the only light source, it will attract more flying insects.

Things to Avoid When Using Zevo

Room Considerations:
  • Avoid rooms in the middle of your home and upstairs where you don't typically see flying insects. Flying insects don't usually journey deep into your home.

Locations and Placement Considerations:

  • Don't place Zevo directly next to a window or door on the same wall (bugs don't u-turn very well).
  • Clear a path so bugs can get to Zevo. Leave six inches of open space on any side of Zevo and don't hang things above it. 
  • Avoid placing near computers, TVs, behind furniture, and other obstructions.
  • Don't leave lights on over-night near Zevo. They can compete for the bug's attention.

Give Zevo Time to Work

  • Allow a 3-7 days for Zevo to start catching flying insects. Once one flying insect is trapped, more should follow.
  • Location, temperature, and humidity can all affect Zevo's performance. Flying insects are less active in cool and dry weather. 

Keep Zevo Plugged in 24/7

  • Zevo captures and traps flying insects 'round the clock and can help manage flying insects day after day and night after night.
