The table below illustrates which DynaTrap mosquito or bug trap model requires which replacement bulb. Check the bulb specifications and the product description twice before making a purchase.

How often should I replace my DynaTrap bulbs?
Your bulbs should be replaced every 3,000 hours or around four months of use, according to the manufacturer. With an LED bulb, the DT1120 may not need to be replaced for many seasons of usage since it will survive considerably longer.
If your bulb burns out unexpectedly, we suggest having a spare bulb or set of bulbs available.
Where can I buy DynaTrap replacement bulbs?
DynaTrap replacement bulbs are available in most of the places that sell the items; however, many only offer the most popular ones. Amazon is a trustworthy online retailer with a large range of products to choose from. Open-box deals and hard-to-find products can be found on eBay.
