    Stinger vs Flowtron (Winner!)
    8/8/2011

    Customer review by scottls

    Stinger: Pros- With mosquito lure, killed lotsa bad insects- BUT! Cons- Their electric wire grid uses square wires that QUICKLY clog up. Pretty soon it was packed solid & killing nothing! I had to keep blowing it out ( air compressor) every couple of days- HASSLE! Flowtron BK-80D" (took the wimpy 40w back!)- Pros- Killed lots more bugs, because it NEVER clogs up! The electric rods are straight up/down, so no cross wires to catch falling insects & clog. Dead insects fall out the bottom- Blow clean once a month. Update!- Forget the pricy attractant! My Flowtron 80w kills mosquitos!- Hundreds of dead ones underneath! My Flowtron 15w didn't do much, but 40w was faily good (much cheaper bulbs)! My theory!- Mosquitos are attracted to the heat that is generated when moths... are zapped! I've watched the mosquitos come as moths are being zapped!- Love the zapping noise (not that loud)! Cons- The only con is that the outer protective plastic cage HAD bars only about 1/2" apart (same with Stinger)- This kept larger moths... from being able to easily get in to the electric grid. I used a large wire cutter, to cut out every 3d bar, on top 2/3ds of cage. Alternating..., so cut bar was in the middle of two solid bars on adajacent side- Still rigid! I put it on an outside timer (for when evenings cool down- Not much insect activity below 55 degrees...). Adjust accordingly. Never hang it near a door, as their is always a 10'+ swarm of insects around it. Try to hang it over head high, in a DRY (electric) area. Removing the bulbs to clean them WILL cause the socket contacts to fail!- I never did figire out how to thoroughly clean the bulbs (High psi compressor helps, and IS a must!- Vacuum cleaner is too wimpy!)!? NOTE!- Spray electrical grid bars with PAM when new for easier cleaning later, but be SURE & remove bulbs FIRST or they will crack. -I tried Carefully spraying just the bars with water, and ruined the unit!

    The faint of heart should place this out of hearing distance. It zaps them all! It seems to have eliminated most flying insects near the house and summoned them from the rest of my acre. I'm getting another for the back half of the property. It may have saved me the cost of screening my porch because of the mosquitoes it eliminates. I was greatly helped by the other positive reviews and after my research on various models was determined to buy this one, although my local Wal-Mart was out. I ordered online and it arrived, free shipping in a couple of days. It is not a danger to bees as they do not come around at night. I examined the large pile of carcasses under it and have yet to see a single insect I will miss. Hung away from the house as the instructions advise, and because of the protective grid, it seems to pose no problems for lizards or geckos. The recommended fragrance lure replacements seem priced a bit high, but my mosquitoes seem to come in droves without it.

    Over the last 20 years I have tried all of the brands. Three years ago my Flowtron was killed by a baseball. I replaced it with a Stinger only because my local store ran out. In the summer of 2012 I caught West Nile Disease, I am now paralyzed. Now I have two Flowtron 80watt zappers, and nothing flies at night in my yard. Thank you Flowtron.

    1. It zaps almost every annoying bug that flies. 2. Placed strategically, it provides additional lighting in your yard.

    • A. It has neither. The light is on all the time when it is plugged into a live electrical circuit. Having said that, I've owned two similar products from another brand and the thing that failed on each of them was the fluorescent light starter, so that may well be a good thing.

    • A. No, just a short cord. You need an extension cord. You could hook that into a timing device or get creative to cycle it off and on when you need it. If you provide power to the short cord supplied with it, the light comes on, otherwise it is off until energized.
