They go pop as they get zapped :giggle: :giggle: :giggle:

Very good find, already being pestered by flies etc. Does anyone know how the long the lamps last for?

You should change the lamps every season, they go off (fade)

I bloody hate mosquito's. I used one of these in Pakistan a few years ago, and they are excellent at catching mosquito's - and anything else that's small and flies.

Completely filled the bottom section with some the scariest insects I'd ever seen, and most of them were still alive when I disconnected it from the mains to empty it.

Empty & run.... shouldn't have the same problem here, the insects over here are much smaller and less agressive.

Gonna buy a couple of these for my hols, and take them with me for the hotels.

Voted Hot

Was gonna say the same thing, going to South America for 3 months so this should fill up the bottom section to the point of overflow?

anyone know if its worldwide voltage?

going rate is only around £5-£7 for these not really a bargain IMO

Where can you get them from at those prices then, I've bought a few over the years and £14.99 is the going rate I would say.

Cheers,

im sure these are the 1s that are just lights(notice they are called blue light) not zappers there was a load of these on ebay last year and a lot of people got stung they were the same sort of price notice it says uv lamp id avoid these u will see them on ebay the same price and less if you want a fly zapper buy a decent 1 they are about £30 and do as they should im voting cold as they are not really a bargin u can pick these up cheaper than this because they are rubbish

Not sure this would work against Scottish midges. Although you may have the odd mosquito or two flying around the Scottish midges come out in their millions. So while you may kill a few thousand it still won't be enough. Although it would be fun trying.

Got one in Lidl last year £6.99, they also had them in a few other shops for around the same price too

I bought one last year at a local garden centre for £20, so this deal is a brilliant buy.

A huge fat moth (I hate those things) got caught on two of the wires, and it sort of popped, then smouldered for a while...I'll never forget the smell of burning moth as long as I live.

It does get them. Well the wasp killer i have (which was cheaper than this one here!) does.

For bigger infestations, check out the MidgeMagnet. But they're pricey.

Someone told me they picked up one of these for £3, I'm trying to remember where he said it was!

It is said that for every spider you kill you let 10,000 fly's live.

So better stock up on fly spray:-D which also kills spiders btw!

Any good?

I worry, if these things attract the bugs then surely you're going to get more bugs in your home as a result? Of course this thing will then kill them. But not befor half the neighbourhood bugs have taken a tour of the house.

i really don't see the point in spending £15 just to keep flies away. mosquitos maybe, but flies are just flies. if you're having a BBQ then the smoke/ heat usually keeps them away while you're eating.
