This really works. It has to be hung up a distance away from where you are - we usually hang it on the other side of the yard when we have a fire. It works really well - it has a UV light that attracts bugs. You can hear them get zapped, so you know it is working! The only downside of this unit - and the reason I wouldn't recommend it - it attracts ALL bugs - not just mosquitoes! I hear a lot of BIG zaps when I have it on and watch moth after moth die - kind of sad. It is a great alternative to bug spray but not selective enough, which leaves me feeling REALLY guilty when I use it. I don't want to kill all the flying bugs in my yard - just the ones that want to bite me!
It is a well built unit, though. We have had ours for several years with no issues.
My sister and her husband own one and I got to see it work first hand, what a great product, really zaps those bugs,one of the best bug repellants I've seen so far
I had The Stinger Bug Zapper in my backyard this summer and it worked great!!! Kept the pests away at a low cost!!!
The Stinger is a electronic pest repeller. There is a combo kit that contains a indoor and outdoor one. Both are great, but the Outdoor one works the best! It has a UV blacklight that attracts insects and lures them in and zaps them. It works well as it kills insects from far away and at the same time is somehow entertaining.
