The bugger zapper we bought last night is already dead. The ultraviolet light isn’t coming on anymore. I browsed for reviews and many people had the same problem, and they recommended the Flowtron Insect Killer.

Here it is:

Flowtron 1 1/2 Acre Insect Killer With Exclusive Mosquito Attractant

We’re ordering this one from Home Depot tonight, and I’m taking the Stinger one back tomorrow.


I tried the Stinger one again, before I boxed it back up and now it works again! We have it set to 24 hours, rather than the sensor option to only use it at night, but maybe the black light only comes on at night? Jeff hung it back up for tonight and we’ll see. I hadn’t placed the order for the Flowtron yet.
