Since UV light zappers are mostly ineffective against mosquitos, I doubt this product lives up to its name. http://insectcop.net/are-bug-zappers-effective/

Well maybe like a double negative in a sentence, putting a bug zapper inside a glass housed fixture creates a vortex of bug zapping power and effectiveness that science can not not undisprove.
that was my understanding as well, they look for carbon dioxide and heat.
It is my understanding too that uv light won’t attract neither kill mosquitoes, therefore, in my opinion, is irresponsible to make the claim that it will kill zika, dengue, west nile or any other mosquito associated virus. Just sayin’
Even if they don’t kill mosquitos, would this work better then the yellow porch light that are supposed to not attract as many bugs?
Too many bugs get into our house from the porch light, since opening the door creates a vacuum that sucks in the bugs. It doesn’t help that our porch light is 1 inch away from the door.
My same issue but the yellow light isn’t that bad and there won’t be a pile of dead bugs literally in front of the door to walk over anytime someone comes in or out of the house.
Where are the proofreaders tonight???
Improper spelling, plurals, and homonyms are just the beginning of the problems. At least the bulb keeps annoying the mosquitos…???
I’ve never used these lights but my experience with another UV bug light confirms all the criticism here. Lots of little gnats were zapped but rarely a mosquito. And it’s not as if there are no mosquitoes flying around. The only effective control we’ve found is to manually go after them with an electric fly/mosquito swatter.
Yes, that’s how mosquitoes detect living animals. They can also detect human perspiration.
No, it’s a chemical in our breath called octoenol (aka 1-Octen-3-ol aka mushroom alcohol), not CO2, etc.
But how about for other small flies?
We have a number of guinea pigs and at times there are flies that tend to hover around the cages looking for a damp place to reproduce.
Looking at this as maybe a way to manage them in between cage cleanings.
I especially love the “chords” sentence.
Great science lesson…
Bats are an effective, good for the environment, mosquito control. Search the Web to buy or for plans to build a bat house and mount it high in a tree.
My neighbors two houses down from me did that before I moved here and in the 18 years I’ve lived here, not one mosquito bite. Ever.
Moths! It’s the moths I have to zap!! Any info on getting them?
Wow, are there usually mosquitos in your area?
When I built my home, I installed the porch light about 10 feet from the front door. Still illuminates everything, but the swarm is nowhere near the door.
Turn the vent system on in your house and close vents in all rooms besides the one with the porch door. This would create the positive pressure.
