Stinger 1 Acre Outdoor Insect Killer Details

Poor Product W/ No Recourse

We bought two stingers, model BK 300,  and they worked ok for about a week before the photo cell on one quit working and then the other one totally quit after six weeks. It was getting power but the bulb would not come on. Bulb burned out,right, go back to the store buy new bulb, still does not work. Ok check out the warrenty to find that we have to send it back to the company at our cost, which was over half of the original cost. Do not buy this product.

not happy

Product works great for about 6 months and does not work anymore.  We purchased another 2 and the same thing happened.  I would like them replaced or repaired

BK 100

Had purchased a BK 100 last summer.  Living in rural NC in a wooded area the zapper was non stop, however the bugs prevailed in the swampy locations here in downeastern NC.  The high voltage zapper had went out.  One call to KAZ and they replaced my bug zapper within the week, no questions asked, only to return the faulty zapper.  Thanks for your help with my problem KAZ!

24 hour wonder

Bought it Sunday morning at the Home Depot, hung it out Sunday afternoon.  It came on at sunset and was working great when I went to bed at 11.  It had turned off at dawn by the time I had gotten up.  Monday evening I just happened to be out in the back yard at dusk, it came on with a zap and that was it.  The light worked great, but the grid was dead.  Watched a moth go in and land on the grid and then fly back out.  Emailed the company and was told that this was not an issue with these units, that they had not been having any problems like mine.  I guess they must not read the reviews.

GREAT WHEN IT WORKED

It worked great for a few months and then it stopped zapping bugs.  The bulb still works and outlasted the electric zapping mechanism, go figure I would have guessed it would have been reversed.

Bug Zapper

When we got the bug zapper home, plug it in and all we got was a blue light at the top of the bulb.  The next day it was on, the following day back to the blue light at the top of the bulb. I moved the zapper to another location and it came on correctly and when I came back 30 minutes later it was back to just the light blue light at the top of the bulb.  I can't figure what the problem is.

not so hot

bought a stinger on friday bk100  45.00$ , within one night the light was out so i unplugged it and turned it back on the light came on but it was zapping itself to dealth rather unnerving kindof like a tazer gone haywire so i took it back and got another. well after a couple of hours my son went out and told me that the light was out ... hhm bought a new extention cord specifically for the zapper and it still did the same thing ,after about an hour or two the bulb will go out . looks like a florecent bulb that needs to be twisted to come on its just lit at the base trying to come on but wont . taking it back again will purchase something else crap crap crap

Stinger

The stinger is great to keep bugs from biting.  I cannot go out my door to water the garden or cook on the grill without it.  The only problem I have is that I have to replace it every year.  Other than that it is great for doing 100% what it says it will do.

Stinger bug killer

These are the biggest pieces of crap being sold in the U.S. today. I bought two Stinger BK100 insect killers on Saturday, 6/9/2012 at 7:12PM Eastern time. Around $40.00 each after taxes. Plugged them up as soon as I got home. Sunday morning one of the bulbs was already burned out. Cost about $19.00 for a new bulb, almost half the price of the whole zapper. Now, on Saturday, 6/16/2012 the other zapper will light up but won't spark. Won't buy another ever again, nor will anyone else that I get a chance to talk to. Total junk!

Electric Outdoor Insect Killer model BK100

Originally was looking for a smaller model that could be hung inside our porch area but this works for us, too. The black light is especially cool.
