Customer Questions & Answers

You say it will kill all types of flying insects.

You say your bug zapper will kill all types of flying insects. But I haven't found a electronic bug zapper yet that is effective against Mosquitoes. Has your zapper been scientifically tested and proven effective against Mosquitoes?
Asked by: Hookster
It does kill mosquitoes. We have an acre and a half yard with low lying wet areas so loads of mosquitoes.We have ours running 24 hours and I find I need to clean it out every other day if not everyday and the remains are definitely mosquito. I am thinking about getting another one to see if I can cut down on the mosquito population just a bit more.

can this be outside at all time and it does kill other flying insects

what would a good product be for flying insects with out the smell how do you keep it clean
Asked by: donnavogel
I leave it out all the time (live in Washington State). The electronic components seem to be well covered and encased. I have personally found mosquitoes, moths, and wasps killed by mine, it probably does take care of others as most small bugs are in fact vaporized by the electrical current. My area was quite bug infested and I noted after a couple of weeks it need a quick cleaning with a brush or stick and had a couple hundred bugs just hanging out in to get swept away. I don't notice any sort of smell from it but it is in a inconspicuous part of the yard.

40-Watt Deluxe Bug Zapper is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 38.

Stopped working; dead as a door nail. Bought another one. Worked great for a while. Stopped working. Took this one apart. The light sensor and "On Light" bulbs are not sealed against the casing, allowing water into the unit, frying the electronics. They saved 4 cents and I lost $100.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality with a small design flaw I purchased this brand name specifically because the competitor brand had poor reviews. I had also owned the other brand and found the reviews to be accurate. The design flaw I have found with the Blackflag 40 watt deluxe is it plugs up easily. This time of year I actually have to run two zappers due the volume of flying insects. I have to clean it out every morning as is completely plugged. Bottom line this zapper attracts the insects and kills them! Cleaning it daily is a minor issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This product works really well. I used to have flies and mosquitos in one area of my back deck and now they are all gone. Now my pets and I can enjoy our back deck without worrying about insects bites.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Worth the Price Moth Problem in Kitchen andelse where. Placed this unit 20' from Outside Kitchen door. Has Dramatically reduced the infestation. I just hose it out once a week. Works Great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected Our house backs up to a forrest preserve and retention pond in Chicago. As we expect every summer it becomes a challenge not to get bit by a mosquito when sitting out by the pool. I finally decided to arm ourselves, bought two of these units and two Dynatrap DT1200 units, running 24 hours a day. Results, haven't been bit by a mosquito in over a couple weeks. The devices are constantly getting full so I need to maintain every 48 hours. Not a bad trade off. I'd rather do maintenance then get bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase, easily helps with our bug problem Great item. Was looking with something that got good reviews and was overly expensive. Found this one and thought it would be worth a try. Within 24 hours saw a noticeable difference in the bug population around our house. After a while noticed the bugs were coming back again, checked the light and found it was seriously needing a cleaning as there were probably a couple hundred bugs in the mesh. Cleaned it out (following the easy directions in the owners manual) and it continues to work like a champ.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from does not kill or attract mosquitos, does not kill mosquitos and does not attract them, it kills little moths only, and who cares about that, never knew I had them and they never bothered me, had unit on for 5 days, day and night, put a little container under it to see if any bugs got zapped. I have a pond, put it over pond, next to pond, away from pond and nothing, Checked on it continuously and nothing, nothing, nothing. So disappointed. I hate that I have to waste my time and go back to the home depot. IT doesn't even zap anything, no noise at all, it just slowly fries the little moths, and smells bad. I actually have more mosquitos than I did a week ago. A real piece of garbage. Really. I am writing this awful review to save you all some time, I need a bug zapper , and this did not work in the least.
