If a bug zapper is effective when it comes to attracting and killing bugs, the unit will be packed full of insects in no time. When they get stuck in the grid it can affect the zapper’s performance, and at worse, stop it from functioning completely.
This new insect control unit from Stinger makes use of a congestion-resistant grid layout meant for single kills, which effectively decreases the tendency of clogging in the device.
The overall design of the unit was meant to blend right in with your surroundings. It was given a design to make it appear like it belongs in your garden or lawn. To maximize use, users have to guarantee that the device was placed in an ideal setting.
It has to be positioned within 25-feet from human goings-on to effectively lure in mosquitoes and keep them from hovering around individuals. Make use of the extension cord that is included in the package. It is meant for outdoor use, so you can position the unit outdoors.
It features an automatic sensor so it will mechanically turn itself off at dawn, and then switch itself on at night. As for its performance, it worked quite well and it killed insects according to its claims.
The best thing about it was its congestion-proof design, which made for easier clean-up and maintenance. You won’t have to worry about it being clogged with a gross amount of dead bugs.
The BK300 1 1/2 Acre Outdoor Insect Killer was effective when it came to zapping bothersome insects. Mine is still working, but according to a majority of negative reviews online, plenty were disappointed when it stopped working on them after 3 to 6 months of use.
One person even complained that the third unit he bought lasted no more than 30 days. The same user said that he went for another replacement because it was under warranty. Mine is still working, but let us see whether I will suffer the same fate.
However, if you are quite wary, you can go for other, more durable units if you want to save money. I am on the lookout as well for other models.
Stinger’s BK300 1 1/2 Acre Outdoor Insect Killer is something that will benefit your yard, garden or back porch because it effectively kills and zaps insects into oblivion. You will feel more protected with this bad boy around. Its congestion-resistant design is also a big plus because, I will admit, insect buildup is not a pretty sight.
However, most of the genuine reviews online agreed that the product does not last as long as they desired. I have been wary about the longevity of my own unit as well, but if you want a product that lasts, to save money and sanity, it is wise to look for another model.
