DynaTrap announced it will be providing its high-tech insect traps to protect players, caddies, course workers and fans at the 2019 BMW Championship Aug. 13-18 at Medinah Country Club. The tournament is the second leg of the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup Playoffs.
“DynaTrap is very excited to again partner with the Western Golf Association and Medinah Country Club as they welcome the 2019 BMW Championship,” Dynamic Solutions Worldwide President Juan Rocha said. “We are incredibly honored to provide America’s best-selling mosquito and insect traps to enhance player performance and patron experience throughout the entire grounds of the iconic golf course.”
The one-acre DynaTrap DT2000XLP device is free from pesticides, easy to maintain, environmentally friendly and whisper-quiet. The trap attracts insects using a combination of UV light and TiO2 coating that generate trace amounts of CO2 in order to mimic human activity. The DynaTrap team has also developed ATRAKTA Wasp, an attractant designed to specifically target wasps, which are especially prevalent toward the end of summer. As flying insects approach the trap, the strong, yet silent, fan vacuums them into the retaining cage where they dehydrate and die, providing users with a safe, silent and simple solution to insect control.
“We were very impressed with DynaTrap at the 2017 BMW Championship event and are looking forward to having them as a partner again this year,” Western Golf Association director of tournament operations Patrick Timson said. “Taking this additional precaution will ensure the world’s top golfers can focus exclusively on their game, and not be distracted by irritating insects like mosquitoes and wasps, or noisy insect traps.”
“We understand the nuisance and annoyance that wasps, mosquitoes, biting flies, and other insects bring, especially on the golf course,” Rocha added. “We built our traps to silently capture and kill – without disturbing the beneficial bugs – like butterflies, honey bees, dragon flies, etc. - or the people around them.”
