BioSensory Dragonfly II mosquito trap and NightWatch bedbug monitor recalled due to laceration or burn hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling Dragonfly II mosquito traps and NightWatch bed bug monitors over laceration or burn hazards.

The Dragonfly II Model 503 is a cylindrical unit made of metal and plastic with a black, silver and dark graphite finish.

The units are about 91 cm tall and 20 cm in diameter.

The Dragonfly logo, model number, electrical information, Canadian Standards Association (CSA) mark for Canada and the United States (C US), BioSensory street and internet address are engraved on the main housing, on the side opposite the control panel.

The NightWatch Model 506 is a white moulded plastic unit 36 cm long and 41 cm high with a black and white striped thermal lure over the top and sides. Two detachable pitfalls are on either side of the unit.

The pitfalls have a felt ramp leading to the elongated collection pit. The NightWatch model number, electrical information, Canadian Standards Association (CSA) mark for Canada and the United States (C US), BioSensory street and internet address are engraved on the underside of the unit beneath the control panel.

Carbon dioxide pressure sensors inside these products can crack and leak or burst, causing the release of CO2.

This could cause cracks with sharp edges that could cut a consumer’s hand, or direct CO2 discharge could cause a frostbite-like burn to a consumer’s hand.

Dragonfly II was sold exclusively by Frontgate Catalog in May 2009 for about $37 US.

NightWatch was sold to licensed professional pest control operators by Forshaw Distribution (Charlotte, N.C.) and Residex, LLC (Cranford, N.J.) in May 2009 for approximately $600 US each.

Consumers should stop using the recalled product immediately and contact Frontgate to receive a replacement unit.

Professional pest control operators who purchased NightWatch from Residex or Forshaw Distribution should take the units out of service immediately and return them to the distributor centre for replacement.
