Best Lit’l Bugzapper in Texas…

The Very Serious Flowtron BK-15D

We had a yellow jacket nest under our porch and tried several things to get rid of them. Didn’t want to spray them as they could possibly get very angry and find a way into our house (old 1800’s). Borrowed a “Stinger” bug zapper to set it in front of the entrance hole. Waste of time! Zapper was made so that the bees would have to land on the zapper, crawl thru the tiny openings, fly over to the first screen wire electrode, land on it, crawl thru the screen, then crawl over to the second screen wire electrode which looked to be about 3/8″ away, and make sure they were touching both screens before getting zapped. All it accomplished was to get them mad!

Read up on the Flowtron which is made with alternating vertical rods for electrodes and closer together than the screen was in the first unit. Thought it might work so I ordered one. When it came, I cut out some of the grill so the yellow jackets could fly thru it instead of having to crawl thru like the Stinger, set it out, and the fireworks began!

This thing rocks, like… ZAPPPP!…ZZZZZZZzzzzzz… smoke…. flames…. no more bees!!!!! I wouldn’t suggest you set this thing in a hay loft or such! It’s a very serious bug zapper, and this one is the smallest one they sell! Most of the dead insects fall to the bottom (what’s left of them), so it really is easier to clean. And notice that I said “easier”, not “no clean-up ever”. If you’re too lazy to clean it out once in a while, you probably don’t need a bug zapper of any make! Get a fly swatter or something!

I highly recommend this unit but stress a little caution where you place it. It’s much easier to clean than the first piece of crap I borrowed and worked much better!
