Does this work for hornets?

Asked by Mika June 7, 2021
2
Answers

Our Black Flag zapper has killed a few hornets, however our lizards love to eat bees and hornets also. Lots of lizards equal a yard in good balance. We use the least amount of insect killer and let our birds, lizards and Cal King Snakes (non poisonous) take care of the pests and rodents. However we do get a road runner here that will hunt the lizards and a red tailed hawk that hunts the road runner.... When it is time for a new bulb, get the Black Light BB--40BLK 40 Watt. This bulb has better drawing power for the bugs, just do not stare at it for long periods of time.

Do you have to plug this in?

Asked by Teresa May 3, 2021

Answers

Insert Quizzical Looking Picture.....;-) Teresa, The Short Cord Answer Is,,,,,,,,,,,,,,YES. 120 Volts Alternating Current that is available at most homes in the United States and Canada. Some of these bug zappers are two wire and some have three wire grounding plugs.You may need a grounded three wire electrical cord to locate the power and current from the wall socket to the location of your choice. Be sure that the extension cord is rated for outdoor use and at least 16 gauge or 14 gauge wire (larger) and no more than 100 feet from your electrical outlet, if possible be sure that any outdoor appliance is connected to a GFCI protected outlet (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) to protect you from stray electrical currents. Please contact a Licensed Electrical Engineer (Sparky) to check the circuit if unsure of your equipment. Have a great day! Lee

Georgia Swamp testing its limits
I live on 19 acres in northern GA. I have a pond, a lake, a creek, wooded wetlands and about 10 acres of forest....and my house is right in the middle of it all. We moved into this property a few months ago and we were shocked at how many mosquitos there were. It was terrible. I put this bad boy out and in 3 weeks had to clean it, I know people say it is self cleaning but I guess not on my property. Pictures attached. I am very happy with the results. There are times when we are outside and do not see a single mosquito. My recommendation is to buy several packs of the lures and put a new one out NEXT to the old one during the last week of the old one's useful life. I think the effectiveness of the lure drops pretty significantly after 2 to 3 weeks. My family can enjoy the back porch and BBQ pit. Great stuff.

Quiet and deadly
I wasnt sure if this product would be as effective, but this picture shows it is. My home is surrounded by several trees. We also live fairly close to a lake. I hung this from a tree about 50ft from where we sit outside. I cleared the branches around it so it wasnt being blocked by branches or leaves. You can barely hear, if at all any of the bugs hitting the lamp. I also burn tiki lamps where we sit to help in the immediate area.

I only have a half an acre so this unit should be sufficient. I don't see or hear many bugs being zapped compared to my last older unit that died. I don't think it attracts or kills many mosquitoes.

I bought two of these just yesterday and ran them overnight...talk about a bug massacre! I will have to clean it out as the bugs are all caught up in the grill around the unit. See the photo...

Yes!
I have never reviewed anything before but this is a product I fully believe in. It works. Period. I live in a highly populated mosquito re of Texas and the bugs are bad... I hate bugs that fly. This zapper is awesome! It suggests to attach one bug/mosquitoes lure but I am using 3. There is a noticeable difference. The smell of the burning bugs (June bugs in particular) is absolutely not pleasant but bug biteand just their presence is even more unpleasant. No complaints here. If you are thinking about it stop thinking and do it. I would not have taken the time to write this if I questioned this product at all!

I HATE MOSQUITOS!!!! This thing has been such a blessing for our backyard and made it enjoyable and relaxing again. It's very hungry for any little nuisance of an insect that dares approach it. Two thumbs up.
