The 40-watt black light bulb increases catch by over 40% than traditional ultraviolet white light bulbs. The Octenol lure helps attract mosquitoes and other blood seeking insects by emitting a sent similar to a large mammal. To help save energy the Ultra Bug Zapper showcases a sundown sensor that turns off the zapper during the day when there are no mosquitoes. An easy to see indicator switch lets you know when the zapper is working.

I have no problems with Stinger mosquito abatement bug zappers and have used them for years. You do have to follow Stingers recommendations such as changing the bulb annually, changing the Octenol bait monthly and then clean them out regular. A plugged up trap is not the manufacturers fault, it is the end users fault if you don't clean it out. I have a portable 5 gallon air tank and a 10' coil hose with a 16" blow wand that I use so I don't have to take the trap down to blow it out in the shop or drag 50' of air hose from my compressor everyday to blow it out.
I live at 2,700 feet elevation with extreme weather from -17 in winter to 107 degree's in the summer. I have surface irrigation and my personal mosquito abatement is "NO STANDING WATER ANYWHERE." With surface irrigation and keeping my lines dug out with my backhoe for faster and cleaner moving water to cut down on mosquito explosions helps but no mater what I do I still have some mosquitos. Mosquito hatches are about every 7 days but in warm weather such as the high 90's and the 100's a hatch cycle can be as frequent as every 3 days.
Clean out often is to be expected, the more you have to clean it out the more skeeters/bugs it is killing.
The UV black light bulb is better than the UV fluorescent white bulb is better because it draws less moths which leaves more room to kill skeeters.
IF my grid fails like some folks have said I am going to use the previous model of the Stinger 1 acre bug zapper only I am going to not use the UV white fluorescent bulb but instead change it out to the UV black light bulb.
I have enclosed a pic of the first night I used it on 7/20/12 then a video at night on 7/20/12 I took with my Flip Mino so you doubters can see that this model of Stinger bug zapper does work okay. I also included a pic with and without flash last night 8/10/12 so you can see how mine plugged up completely with a fresh mosquito hatch. I also like the light sensor, it turns on a little earlier than I thought it would, about 1 hour before dark in a shaded area. So this is my experience with the Stinger UVB40 black light 1 acre bug zapper.
This zapper comes with ONE Octenol bait, order more while you are purchasing this and figure one a month needed for the rest of your mosquito season or 1 a month for next years mosquito season. You also might consider ordering a spare bulb in your initial order so it will be handy next season when you fire up your zapper.
