    Answer This Question

    A:  The metal “grate” is surrounded by a durable plastic outside mesh. To even reach the electrified part you would need a piece of wire 2-3” long. Short anawer NO.

        A:  It's a black light, it's pretty harsh and bright. As long as no one sticks a finger in it I guess it's ok inside.

          Q:Is this zapper harmful to small birds and hummingbirds? I don't want them to accidentally fly into it and get hurt.

          Answer This Question

          A:  We have plenty of hummingbirds and other small birds, and have never seen the harmed by this zapper

          by|Sep 24, 2022

            A:  The plastic grid around the zapper, will keep small birds from getting hurt.

            by|Sep 23, 2022

              A:  I personally have not had that problem but by examining the way it was built I would say no! The electric element is deep enough and guarded enough that I don't see that being a problem. The element is about a ½ inch from the light and they would have to penetrate the outer cage first. Then get to the middle to complete the electric circuit.

                  Not An Old Style Bug Zapper...It's Effective, Efficient, Quiet, And Almost Invisible!
                  I've owned several bug zappers over 30 years. I even had a smaller Black Flag bug zapper for the past 3 years. They all have worked well, but this is the first one that actually uses a black light which doesn't cast a bluish light throughout the yard. I wasn't sure how well it would work, but during the first couple nights it was completely filled with dead bugs. Now there are fewer bugs in the unit, but i believe it's due to less bugs. Before I purchased this bug zapper you couldn't go outside without being swarmed by mosquitoes. It looked like my arms were covered in fur. Now we can be outside in the yard enjoying the weather for hours and are not bothered by any bugs. This bug zapper has an energy saver setting that you can choose so it only turns on at night. I have also found that it is very quiet and you don't hear the zaps like the older units. I was unsure of paying so much for this unit, but I am very satisfied with this Black Flag unit!

                  Over 100 mosquitoes in one nigh!!
                  Only one night of having the bug zapper on but i can honestly say it worked!! Every night I go in the backyard to take my dog out to use the bathroom I get attacked by mosquitoes last night all i heard was zapping and was not bothered by one mosquito. Tonight I will have people over in the backyard and I know the mosquitoes are going to rather bite us then go to the zapper but this thing really worked to get the mosquitoes hopefully won't have as much tonight.

                    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.

                        Definitely works!
                        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...

                          We’ve had it up for a couple of weeks and it seems to be doing what it’s supposed to be doing and we’re pleased with its performance.

                          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!
