Stinger 1 Acre Outdoor Insect Killer Details

Temporarily Out Of Stock

stinger insect killer do not last!

We purchased our first  stinger 1 acre insect killer which did a great job killing mosquito's so we purchased another one.  We live on an acre.  The first one lasted about 3yrs buying a new bulb about every 8mo at 15$-$20  each. the 2nd one dies 3mo later again every 6-9 mo buying new bulbs .They were both protected from rain. We kept them clean and protected from the weather. My husband took both of them apart and both had fried circuit board in exactly the same place. when they are working they work great. But at a price of $55.00 + tax each and the cost of replacing bulbs that don't even last 1yr it is a expensive way to kill mosquitos. I looked online to see if anyone else had the same problems and found many that did !  I found them on amazon and ebay also extremly unhappy with there purchase also.

doesn,t last

I got my 1st on last june. After 2 weeks it died. I returned it to Home Depot and got a new one. That one died in August. Returned it to Home Depot again and got anouther. It lasted until this july. Can,t get replacement from Home Depot after 90 days. Am now sending it back to manufacturer for warrantee. These units must have some kind of defect causing them to not last.

Good for one season

The first bug zapper lasted  a couple of month but was replaced under warranty.  The replacement unit was only used a few times but after getting it out for this season, it did not work. Called Customer Service but all they said was it is out of warranty - then she suggested I go on line and buy another. No thanks -don't bother to send the coupon. Kaz is off my list

Stinger Bug Zapper

We got our first Stinger Bug Zapper a year ago as a present.  It worked GREAT!  We took it to Maine camping and went bug free in a very wooded camping area.  We have used in our backyard since getting it and have no issues at all with insects.  What a pleasure to sit outside without putting on so much insect repellent.  We have  suggested it to many of our friends.  The only problem is the entire unit went out yesterday.  Lasting only one year is not what we expected.  Because it was a present, we had no warranty information.  It was not the bulb because we went and bought a new one last night and the unit still did not work.  HOWEVER, we valued the Stinger so much; we just got a new one this morning.  It is plugged in and working right now.  Glad we could fill out a warranty on this one and hope it lasts longer.  For anyone looking for relief from insect bites, this  is the BEST answer we have found.

Last one was not very good

Has been a good product in the past.  I bought one of the new models last summer and it died by season end so I'm back to the tried and true version.  My last one lasted 7 years and am hoping to get that out of this.  4 * is high considering my experience with the last one but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt

UV40 BUG LIGHT

I HAVE HAD ONE FOR A WHILE AND KEEP IN NEXT TO MY COMPUTER... TO GET ANY OF THOSE LITTLE BUGER'S THAT GET PASS THE DOOR AND FINE THERE WAY INSIDE THE HOUSE AT NIGHT... WORKS GREAT...ONLY WISH THEY SOLD PARTS FOR IT .. CAUSE  THE BOTTOM LITTLE DOOR WAY LACH BROKE OFF...

Comment on this review


Honeywell Stinger UV40 40 Watt 1-Acre Advanced Bug Zapper High-impact polycarbonate plastic housing with UV blacklight that attracts phototropic insects and lures them into killing grids.

It works great, but I wish it wasn't quite so loud? I took it with us camping and a few people actually complained that it woke them in the middle of the night while zapping every bug in our area! I thought I was doing them a favor, but  the campground staff said I had to turn it off at midnight!  When you first plug it in it makes a huge crackling noise, and you know its on! Sounds like it does some serious damage to anything that dares enter. I almost feel bad for the bugs! Almost

We have used the Stinger products on our ranch for several years and would recommend them to anyone trying to cut mosquito or moth populations, they do the job.

Comment on this review


Mrs.

We have bought a couple of these before and they don't last very long, maybe 2 or 3 months.  When they work they are great, but it is a waist of money if they don't even last while the insects are here.

 

I will try again and find out how long these last.

Comment on this review


Broke after two months

Bug zapper worked great for two months, now it is just a expensive uv night light. Hopefully they will stand behind there warranty.

Comment on this review


Frequent Purchaser

I have bought at least 6 of these units over the last 10 years.  When I bought this house 12 years ago there was one that looked like it had been here forever that kept on zapping.  It finally stopped working so I bought a couple more and spread them around the property a little more. It seems like the last few I have bought have lasted shorter and shorter lengths of time.  This last one I bought was to repalce one that was less than 1 year old.

When they are working, they are great .  I think Stinger needs to up the quality a little bit though.

Stinger UV40

Does an excellent job of killing - no bugs bit our grandchildren while out in the yard during the day time.  Were not out at night to test it yet.

Grid got full of bugs in a few days - did not drop out as advertised.

Like Stinger Products

I have owned this product for years, the one I purchased last August does have a problem with the zaper part.

Nice device

After a few days of usage, the bug population seems to be decreasing. Very nice auto on setting, very convenient, would be great if bug attracted to it during the day too...

Oh well cant have everything.!

Stinger 1 acre Insect Killer

Excellent product.  Durable design.  Easy to clean.  Works well in rural Oklahoma. 

Also 5 stars to the online customer service dept.  I contacted them by email because the product had a part failure after 2 days of use.  Within a few hours I had a reply, answered some questions to diagnose the defect and was provided postage paid return shipping.  The replacement shipped 2 days after the defective item was received @ Kaz.   No further problems...  the replacement is busy zapping mosquitos!

Zapper innoperatble

Bought it a couple of months ago but didn't take ouf of box until recently.  Few days later realized zapper was not zapping.  Need course of action.  thanks

Great Product

This is my thrid bug zapper.  I have been using the Stinger since the late 1980's and I always go get the Stinger when I need to replace or add.  Keep up the quality work on the bug zapper.

Comment on this review


Got two warranty replacements today

I've posted previously about having purchased 8 of these in the last 3 years. Told Kaz that I was tired of buying them and thought the quality was really bad. I sent in the last two bad units to warranty center last Friday and received two new replacements today (Wednesday). It cost me $22.80 to send units in. The two units received today are made differently than perhaps the last 6 units I previously purchased. I'm hoping these two units are more representative of the other quality products that I've purchased from Kaz in the past. Time will tell.

does not work

I purchased the unit last summer and it worked for about 2 weeks, the UV light works and it attracts bugs but it does not kill them i have neve heard it ZAP anything. The sad part i bought it from Lowes and lost my reciet and can not return it. that was $50.00 thrown away.

Comment on this review


Mr

The Stinger UV40 Series Bug Zapper that we purchased, appears to be doing a great job.

Comment on this review


grid does not work

I bought this product and used it for about 1 month and stored it for the winter. When I got it out this month the light worked but the grid had no power. I want to know how to be compensated for this purchase.

Comment on this review


The Stinger "STINGS"

Tvery first night, our moth problem was resolved. No more moths getting into the house everytime you opened the door. It was getting out of hand. Then we bought the Stinger and problem solved.

Thanks, Stinger. Great Job!!!!

Love the Stinger Insect Killer.  Have purchased several in the past and anytime I had a problem, it was resolved very quickly.

Comment on this review


bad item

It really kills the bugs but after 1 month using it during nights (using the energy saving mode) it gets so hot that melt the plastic that covers the screws of the inside.

Comment on this review



UV40

This zapper is fantastic! We spent our first bug-free evening on our porch after installing it. Highly recommend it.

Comment on this review


Great but fragile pieces

The unit was bought at Lowes and when trying to install a piece was missing so it had to be returned to Lowes. We then were able to use the unit for about a week when the plastic hanging ring broke. I called the toll free number and they would not send a replacement ring but instead wanted to inconvenience me to send it back or return to Lowes to return it a second time. The unit would probably be great if we could ever use it.

Bug Zapper

Received in good condition and works well. My old one bit the dust and was happy to recieve this one on time.

Comment on this review


Save your money!

It is a not worth the cost. The previous one we had, made by your company, at least lasted 18 months before the bulb burned out. This time, we did not even make it 3 (THREE) months!!!! The local store said notify the company. Consider this your notification!! I guess I'll find one made by the company that made our old one. The bulb in it lasted 4 YEARS!!!

We purchased 3 Stinger UV40 Series Electronic Insect Killers in the US and shipped them down to Honduras. We use them to control the Mosquito Population for our Missionary place in Honduras. They are amazing! They have cut our mosquito and other biting insect population down significantly!

Comment on this review


tony risner

The product Worked very well for one season then it Crashed - no light or hight voltage. I followed the troubleshooting steps in the owner's manual. Problem was stil there so I called warranty 800 number. I was told that I needed to replace the bulb first before the unit could be warrantied out. I advised that there was no high voltage present and that I did not want to spend $18.00 to buy a bulb for a bad unit. I complied with yhour representative and purchased a new bulb. When inserted and power was applied the bulb blew. So now I have a bad unit and a bad bulb. While I am very happy with the product I am not happy with yor service and warranty. Please correct this problem. Tony Risner

Bulbs life

I purchased a model uv40 Stinger on 4-16-2011. On 5-27-2011 the bulb went out. 1- is this covered under warrenty? 2- is that all the time the bulb will last?

Have had this product in the past and have had to replace two previous units in less than 3 years. They have been replaced in a timely fashion, but do hope that the quality has improved since that time. Just hung yesterday and seem to be working well. I did buy 2 units/ and tried replacing bulbs in old unit first with no success. So now have an extra bulb when needed. Thanks for you interest/ connie simpson

Comment on this review


Stinger Killer

We purchased our first Stinger insect killer a few years ago. It did seem to help keep the number of insects, especially mosquitos, to a minimum. Our first unit lasted a few years, only requiring light bulb changes each year. When it no longer worked this year, we replaced it. The quality of this unit was not as good as the one we purchased a few years ago- the plastic came apart at the top within a few weeks of hanging it. We purchased a replacement and the light bulb went out on that one in a few weeks as well. While we commend the customer service department as they have been very good at helping us with replacements and very prompt in their response, we are disappointed that the overall quality has not been as good as the first killer that we purchased.

Good Product/ Better Bulb

Bought a UV40, brought it home and the bulb didn't work. Took it back to the store purchased from and received a whole new product. Worked awesome for almost a month, took it down to clean it and when turning it back on, no bulb again. Not sure if it is a bulb defect or a product defect. Have had other similar products and never had to replace the bulb for years.

Poor Dependability

I purchased another UV-40 bug Zapper this evening because the former unit did not work after I purchased a new bulb!!    Why?   I do not like to purchase a new bug zapper every two years because the old one will not religh when  I buy a new bulb and install it in the orginal unit. 

        Is there a fuse on the unit, a starter or a part that prevents the unit from lighting the new bulb when it is placed in  the unit after the burned out bulb is replaced? 

Comment on this review


Mr. Kaz

It worked well for about 7 months (5mos in 2010 & 2mos 2011) then quit. I thought it was the bulb and replaced it but to success. I'm hoping the warranty will prevail.

Comment on this review


UV40Series

It is an awesome bug zapper, EXCEPT it simply stopped working today (8-10-11), just 19 days after purchasing it! I will be calling your 1-800 # asap! Is there a re-set button? (Worked great for 18 days...the problem is not with the ext. cord, and the unit's red light is working...the bulb isn't lit anymore. No point in calling me...we don't answer calls out of our area code- solicitors...)
