This Stinger UV801-Bl Insect repeller functioned good; but I cannot find in any place in Puerto Rico and in the Internet the two replacement bulbs!!!!!

Comment on this review


Faulty design

Works fantastic and controlls mosquito population like no other product.  But works for 1 summer only. If you dare to replace the UV bulbsit will burn them in a flash.  I bought 2 units originally and both died the first summer.  Then killed 6 new bulbs while trouble-shooting. Very disapointed.

Stinger Insect Killer

The UV801 Series was just what we were looking for.  It covers over 1 acre of property with insect protection and it really is doing the job.  It even scared aware the rabbits that have been eating our hosta garden like it was a salad made just for them.

The Stinger began working the minute we plugged it in.  It even provides a great night light in the garden when we are stitting out in our gazebo after dark..

Faulty Product

The zapper does a great job, but one of the lights no longer works. I have tried replacing the bulb, but the product is faulty - one bulb works, one does not. I have tried all troubleshooting and am convinced the product needs to be replaced. I purchased a "one-year" warranty from Wal-mart, but have lost the receipt... the product says do not return to the store... what are my options?

Comment on this review


works for one season only

I have purchased one of these units new each of the last two years.  Put them up in the spring, take them down and clean them up good in the fall. Put them up again the next spring, after installing brand new bulbs,  and they won't work.  The electrical grid works, but the bulbs will not light up.  Very unhappy, will not purchase another one.......

stinger bug zapper

I got a new Stinger Bug ZapperU V 801  in 2011, the bulbs are already burned out,  I talked to the lady at Kaz in Southborough, Mass. she stated that bulbs  last usually one season, yet, the unit I had for almost 5 yrs. the bulbs did not burn out , so at $17.99 a bulb that is expensive esp. when it needs 2 bulbs to operate. Where in the literature does it tell you how long the bulbs will last  with the unit operating 8 hrs. a day. Please let me know. Thanks.

Unhappy

Bought a Stinger model UV801-BL in January this year and just put it out two weeks ago and have a burned out bulb already--this is not good.  I've had four or five of this model over the years and havn't had a years service out of any of them.  Going to order a replacement and the look for other opitions.

Stinger Bug Zappers

I really like your Stinger bug zappers because they do work, but.... you have some serious product problems,  as they're much too fragile and tend not to last long. We're gentle with them...we hang the unit in a tree and don't bang it around. Wind is not a problem. I've had 5 or 6 units in 4 years: 3 UVB45, 1 of the spaceship style that's no longer listed; and in just 2 months 2 units of the UV801-BL. In two of those units the bulbs quit working within 3-4 weeks. Bought a UB801 in March. Three weeks later 1 of the 2 bulbs go out. Open the the trapdoor & the bulb is cracked at the bottom of the u-turn. Bought replacement bulb and it lit-up for 3 seconds and died. Returned unit & new bulf to Wal-Mart. Bought another UB801 on May 12. One of the bulbs burned out last week. $20 a bulb. That's not good. Since one bulb's not working in the new unit, Wal-Mart's probably going to get this one back, too. I give you 3 stars because the idea of the Stingers is good and they start out working good. But I can't even get a month out them, much less a summer season. Maybe it should be 2 stars...?

Mr

purchased two uv801 models and they work exceptionally well.  The blackflies wecompletely removed from our lakefront--the

mosquitos are out as of today--added the octenal and will report again

Swimming Pool Bug Control

I can not give it more than 3 stars now since I have only had the Stinger one night. We have a 2 acre yard with a swimming pool. We live on part of a 50 acre dairy farm with a creek and woods on the backside. I put the Stinger in a tree out by the pool and as soon as I plugged it in it went to work. When I gout up at 5:00am this morning it was still working in overtime.

Had to clean it out from all the bugs it had got. If it keeps working like it dil last night I will sone be able to sit out by the pool longer at night. I am also thinking about getting another one and place it on the other side of the house.

Comment on this review


It worked for a while

the black light went out last week and I've tried cleaning it, which it had a lot of dead bugs but after pluging the unit back in, it still did not work.  It does not attract bugs at night anymore.  I have had it less than one month.

I purchased a new stinger uv801 to replase on that I have used for years. It was still working but the lights burnt out and rather than replace them I decided to replace the unit.

Bug Zapper

This is the 2nd UV801 BL Stinger I have purchased. I am very pleased with this product. It allows me to enjoy sitting outside without being "eaten alive". Great product at a great price

Comment on this review


Have not tried it yet. It is raining, waiting for a dry day.

Have not tried it out. Seen it "UV801 series" had great review! Need something to wipe out insects!!! BAD!!!

Comment on this review


Large and In charge!

I did not realise when i purchased  this it was so large but now that we have it WE LOVE it! It does the job very VERY well.  Big bugs little bugs, flies, moths... Bzzzt.  No problems with it. When the beetles fly into it they touch the grid and that is the  end of them. We have not saw 1 single mosquito since buying this  zapper.  we can actually enjoy our open air  front porch now that the bugs are not dive bombing   and Snacking on us. Could not be to much happier with the product. Thank YOU!

Stinger UV801

Works great on zapping bugs but the bugs do not drop out the bottom. Everyday i hav to blow bugs out of grid with small air hose.

Comment on this review


short life

This is the forth UV801 that has quit for me. Have sent three back for replacement. This one was deliveried Feb.3rd.2011. One bulb quit 4 days ago today the other one quit. They first turn red at the top and then quit. I don't know what the problem is, but either faulty design,inferior materals or poor workmanship is to blame for so many going bad. I will wait for a return label and send this one back. It is really getting expensive as it cost nearly $14 dollars to ship it back.  Yours, Bobby J Camp  14509 Persimmon Cr.

Comment on this review


UV801

This is the best "bug zapper" we have ever had.  We have a light show every night I have to blow the insects out almost every day. .

GREAT INSECT KILLER

I live in a rural area with lot of trees, bushes,weeds and ponds. The Stinger "cooks" bugs contantly for three or four hours, then every so often you will here bugs frying.Great piece of lawn equipment.

Comment on this review


insect killer

We have only had it 1 day but we really like it. We can sit outside and the bugs are not bothering us.

Comment on this review


feedback

My Stinger Model UV801 is not the first one I have owned, this is an upgrade after we wore out 2 smaller models here. (We live in Central Florida) This one should last so much longer, since there are heavier duty components, 2 bulbs, etc. The Customer service on your phone line is superb, helpful, turn around time is fast, and the product certainly works overtime in this climate and condition. Thank you for a job well done, folks.

Insect Killer

Have had smaller ones, but only lasted a couple of years. Bought the largest one, so far it is working well

Comment on this review


Stinger 1.5 acre bug zapper

So far the product has been working great.  However, we have had to purchase several of these units over the past many years due to the fact that they burn out or fail after 1-2 years of use.  Hopefully we won't need to send any of these back to you for warranty work in the near future.

Comment on this review


love this one

works great better than the previous version which was way too bright

kills the moths like no tommorow                 

Comment on this review


Really Works

This is amazing, it really works so well especially when the sun goes down, we have ours about 10 feet away from house and all the bugs go to it instead of us. You won't even need any sprays.  works FANTASTIC  at night, but during the day, the bugs are not attracted by the light (as expected) I guess that is what the scent piece is for to attract during the day.

Owned for over 3 years, good performance, bought second unit for large acreage.

Comment on this review


works great

just got the uv801 and put it up and plugged in. the next morning i had a hand full of mosquitoes stuck in the grid, must have been thousands, both small black mosquitoes and large ones. same thing the next morning. this unit works where as the mk100s failed miserably. thanks sonja. doug

Comment on this review


Stinger

  This stinger has attracted and killed quite a few insects. It works well, but it does draw more insects.  I would like to see this machine be able to attract and kill wasp!  Seems it should be a way for it to do that.  Maybe a different attractant and color bulb?

 

Over all  I am quite satisfied with the preformance so far!

 

Thanks

great product

works great has really cut down the annoying bugs

stinger uv801-BL

worked great first time I used it however 2nd time i plugged it in one of the bulbs would not light anymore. I recieved this as a fathers day gift and am disappointed that i didnt even get 2 uses out of it without a problem occurring. I would appreciate you sending me a new bulb.

Comment on this review


UV 801 Bug Zapper

   It is a better design than all of the smaller models. I live in the woods and it has to be cleaned out every couple of weeks. To clean it, the plastic cover must be removed to brush the metal grid (I do not have compressed air.) I definitely attracts a lot of moths, mosquitos, and hornets. The packaging for shipping needs improvement. The last unit that I purchased arrived with one of the bulbs broken. There was no visible damage on the outside of the box. Previously, I have received a unit that had the plastic outer cover broken due to damage in shipment. The high voltage transformer is reliable but the ballasts for the fluorescent bulbs do not last all the way through a second season. 

Comment on this review


UV801-BL

It worked half a night. It wasn't even lit up the next morning after I had installed it. When I went to check the bulbs to see if they were seated properly and tight, one bulb broke the moment I touched it. I would give this a zero for stars but the smallest you allow is one star. I have used these things for years but I guess they just don't make them like they use to.

UV801 - STINGER

JUST GOT THE 2 INSECT LIGHTS.  THEY CAME WITH BLACK LIGHT BULBS - AND ARRIVED WITH 3 OF THE BULBS BROKEN.  tHEY WERE REPLACED AND THEY ARE UP AND I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW GREAT THEY ARE WORKING!!  THE BLACK LIGHT SEEM TO ATTRACT MORE BUGS THAN EVER.  WE HAVE TO CLEAN THE LIGHT EVERY OTHER DAY BECAUSE IT FILLS UP SO FAST.  THANK YOU FOR THE MANY YEARS OF SERVICE WE HAVE HAD WITH YOUR PRODUCTS.

Comment on this review


okay

I think this would be okay if it worked. It was sent to me with just one bulb working.

Comment on this review


Stinger 801 Zapper

LOVE LOVE LOVE the product. I am shocked (no pun intended) at the volume of bugs that it kills! Wish we had gotten it sooner. Might even think about getting a second one for the farm in the future.

Would make a suggestioin that the bulbs not be shipped installed in the bug zapper. There was not enough padding on the bulbs and they arrived broken. The replacements were sent very promptly which was greatly appreicated.

Thank you!

Great Product, this is the third unit that I have purchased. Your on line store service was great.

Comment on this review


Stinger Bug Zapper

We bought two of these bug zappers and had problems with one of them right away. The contact for the bulb must not have been good so we returned that one the day after purchasing it. We are having the same problem with the second one this year after only two months of use.

Comment on this review


Stinger

It works just the last one I had and really doing a fine job up until August 7th and it just quick working.

Comment on this review


Stinger gets stung

These units while sold almost everywhere are cheap and have a very short life....2 units in less than a week.....seriously this product is also come to find out under recal although they will not mention this until you bring them back when they quit working.

Comment on this review


Garry

I think these are great and do what they say they do. I have insects all over my window screens trying to get in and succeeding without one of these in my yard to draw them away from the house. Only problem I have is they only last about a year. I have bought about 4 of this model and maybe 6 of the smaller 40 watt units over the years. I keep buying because they work.

Comment on this review


They stand behind their product

 Gotta like this company. No hassle return policy. Told me to ship without the bulbs to avoid breakage so I thought they'd fix and return my broken unit without bulbs - but no. Within 2 weeks they sent a brand new unit - bulbs and all. The cost of the bulbs more than makes up for the cost to ship the bad unit back to Kaz. This is the kind of business that deserves your support. Good product and they stand behind it! 

Comment on this review


bad

recieved the bug zapper and it worked great, for a week and a half. contacted costomer service and they sent me a return lable. recieved the new unit and only one bulb would light. aparently the bulb was broked in transit. contacted cs and they sent me a new bulb that i recieved yesterday. i installed the bulb and it still wouldnt light, thinking the replacement bulb was bad i swapped bulb positions to ensure the bulb was bad. when i plugged the unit in it went blink and the bulb lit for a split second and now back to square one no bulbs will light on the second unit. i dont know if these units are defective or the shipper is damaging these in transit. in all fairness to kaz their cs is exceptional but by the time i have another one sent (third one) the season will be over and i could possibly be stuck with another defective unit thatll set through the winter im asking for a refund upon reciept of the unit and will buy one locally to avoid any more shipping issues. the unit works awsome when it works but unfortunately it doesnt work so the bad review.

Stinger UV801-BL

Does a great job of zapping bugs dead.

Comment on this review


Stinger Bug Zapper

I have two of the 1.5 acre stinger units and both have the same problem - the bulb opposite the power cord fails to light after about a week. Changing bulbs will damage the replacement. The start circuit has a flaw on that side. It works great with one lamp and will zap anysize bug.

I would give it 5 stars except for the lamp problem.
