We have used these bug zappers for about 10 years, we have 1/2 acre, 1 acre and had 1 1/2 acre ones. They work great! It takes time for them to rid an area of bugs. We usually have to clean them out every 2nd day as there are so many dead bugs. Ours are all on timers dusk to dawn. During the day the birds love feasting on BBQ'd bugs. They also make life for our horses more comfortable.

    3 yrs and still going
    I purchased two of the Flowtrons three years ago and they are still going strong. The bugs fall to the ground and are carried off by the birds. I haven’t seen any bees able to get into the grid which is a good thing. But flies, moths, mosquitoes and an occasional praying mantis find their way in. I keep them on 24 hours about 5 feet apart and about 10 feet away from my back door. They have survived several rain storms and I was concerned because they are mounted on the eaves of my roof, and the water washes down on them. There’s no need to close the back door anymore to keep the bugs out, I bought one of those a-salt rifles a year ago and when I went to hunt flies there just weren’t any. I highly recommend this product. I only have one complaint, “the short extension cord pulls the unit off level and leaves it a little unattractive”.

      Not as effective for me as for others...
      I have a Black & Decker Black Flag BZ-15N in my backyard and this Flowtron in the front. The back generally has fewer mosquitos and the device generally has many more carcasses than the Flowtron. However, the front has much more shrubbery than the back which is more open and grassy. I change the oictenol in each every month. The biggest issue I have with the Flowtron is that, as designed, the attractant does not stay in place and often falls out. For me, it would make more sense to have a slot into which to slide the attractant rather that hanging it upside down and daring gravity to let it fall. Gravity wins. I finally drilled some holes in the sides or the attractant mount and wire tied it in place. I'm hoping it proves more effective in peak season next year. Would still recommend with the minor modification.

        Without using attractant, the sqeeters stayed off me. Many night time, egg laying vegetable moths also. Well done.

          Unbelievable, No Just completly Unreal !
          The company that makes this product must have real line quality issues. Noticed a few bad reviews and didn't believe it would happen to me, And for the for the price just not acceptable. Made out of very little metal (the spark rack, a black light bulb and ballast. They give a mosquito attractant with it, but what use is it if the light doesn't even work. Having to wait for the product and then DOA just really floats like a rock with me.

            Bought two, seems to help break the breeding cycle. I live in Fla. And in the woods ! Get two and put them as faraway from the home as necessary you don't want to attract them closer to your home check and clean daily, I turn mine off in the day light hours ! The older ones came with a photo cell to turn them off in the lighted hours .

            Flowtron 1 1/2 acre bug zapper
            By far the best. After buying two different Black Flag models and returning them due to my phone attracted more bugs.I ordered this zapper online from Home Depot and got it shipped to store. Box was in very good shape and no issues. I plugged it up next to a outdoor light where most my bugs fly around. And the z as p smoke and gone. You definitely get what you pay for.

              Flowtron is the best ever!
              I have done alot of review of the different available affordable Mosquito zappers as I dont want a rechargeable battery and I wanted it to be strong to do the job. Recently the Mosquitoes are going crazy even biting us in the well lit sunny wind days. I know that the trees around the house and water are assisting the growth of the Mosquitoes. I had to find something that was of this nature and the unit is perfect. It works well. Using with timer will make it reasonable. I do NOT even use the Mosquitoe attractant and it zaps alot of Mosquitoes. Also having on timer means people can sleep as it is like a lantern which does not need to be on all night. The two pictures below can shows the catch! No attractant. AND when the insects fall below it is fertilizer for the yard or flowers!

                Horrible life span
                I first purchsed two units 2 years ago. One failed completely just over 12 months and the other around 14 months. Silly me i purchased two more. Both are now dead and i have only had them three months! Garbage.
