About this product


Product overview

• Attracts and kills flies, moths, mosquitoes, midges and biting insects using ultraviolet light• Lures light-sensitive flying insects into an electrically charged grid, destroying them quickly • Base tray collects dead insects for hygienic disposal • The top has a loop to hang from a high point

This insect killer is an easy way to combat the menace of flying insects in the home. The UV light attracts the insect towards the electrified grid and a quick end.It can be installed on a counter/table top or hung from a high point. The electric grid is set behind the plastic enclosure that stops fingers touching it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just to clear things up here, the light is quite dim compared to that of the 20w model so isn't amazing during a bright day but still works fine in a hallway or in direct view of the area you're trying to protect. Great though once the evening sets in. The bulb is situated behind quite closely positioned electrocuting bars, so the flies cant avoid getting cooked to get to it. There seems to be no zapping sound like the larger 20w model so far and my kills (mostly small midge types) seem to have gotten held in place so couldn't get away after one survived shock (which can happen with the 20w model). So it could be a good version for a bedroom.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I live on the edge of a forest and as a result I have a problem in my home with flies. I purchased one of these fly killers last week and got the one free. I have to say that I have yet to see an insect biting the dust. The flies appear to totally ignore the machine and don't even go anywhere near it. Very disappointed,

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works OK, but I've been through three units in less than two weeks. As soon as anything bigger than a fruit fly flies into the grid and shorts it out, the whole thing fails and does not restart after cleaning. Fuse isn't blown, seems to be the bulb that goes. Local store very helpful and swapped, but, no, this thing just isn't very reliable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective but you MUST leave it on overnight to get the bugs as it is just not bright enough. To get the next star it NEEDS to work in DAYLIGHT

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Totally useless, has been in place for 3 nights and has yet to account for one insect. Bought these to deal with moths which it has not, even though another make of insect killer accounted for several over the same period of time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from We got two of these as we get a lot of flying insects as close to canal. After 5 days and nights there has not been one insect zapped and flies are ignoring it completely! So far a total waste of money and considering returning both of them.
