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?

Answer: 
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.

I'm sorry Anonymous, I thought My question was going to the Black Flag company, or the very least to Home Depot. I'm very curious as to whether or not it would actually kill mosquitos.

got it as a gift a couple months ago, unsure if it's been scientifically tested. although I have used other black flag products and they have always worked well. this zapper works very well on any flying insect that will fit through the outer plastic casing

Answer: 
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 Read More

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. Read Less

We have a fly problem. I know some zappers won't take care of those pesty things. Will this product take then away and be our "problem solver?"

Answer: 
From my experience fly's are not attracted to this zapper and thus it does not actively get rid of them. In the event that a fly comes in contact with the electrically charged mesh it will be killed. I do not believe this will be your "problem solver" based on the information at hand. If you had issues with mosquitoes, moths, bees/wasps/hornets than this would be a great option for you as they are all Read More

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Design flaw Ive been through two in as many months arcs melt plastic insulators causing cages to short out August 22, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lasts about two seasons This zapper worked well for about two seasons, and then the zapping screen stopped working. The light continued to work, but the unit no longer actually zapped and killed the bugs. Not a great product. Cheap plastic construction. June 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job I wanted and expected it to do!! I actually bought the next size up the 6500 volts but u can't write a review on it but otherwise there both the same as what they need to do and that's keep the night pests to a bare minimum. I live in the country that has a pond and woods next to our house and the black light and green led light that comes on and off u can literally see the mosquitos fly right to it. I can honestly say that sitting on our new porch is very enjoyable now. And as for how quiet it is unless u watch mosquitos getting zapped you literally can't even hear them being zapped. I have only one but I will be buying 2 more because I seems like once there is something that is good and or actually works on the market its gone and replaced with something cheaper and does half the job. May 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product My wife is normally eaten up by mosquitos but since we purchased this bug zapper she hasn't been bitten once. May 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 12, 2012
