I have been looking at buying a bug zapper similar to this one on eBay.
But my mate recons it will attract bugs rather than kill the ones present in the awning.
I was wondering what other members on the forum use. Thanks. Pete Smile

We use an insectocutor in all the school kitchens. They do end up full of dead flies which have to be cleaned out.

It's got a blue light in it. This sort of thing.

There is no problem with it attracting bugs if they go straight to the zapper and get killed.

What bugs do you want to kill though? If it's the things that bite you think again mosquitoes aren't attracted by light. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

More than you ever wanted to know about killing mossies

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] but they used the wrong sort of listerine and the beer traps work better with restricted openings.

You could just stick to lighting citronella candles and eating marmite or not depending on what news source you read. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

If they are, then hang it outside. They must be attracted to it otherwise why would they make them with a blue light.

I just use an insect repellent spray, I have also heard that Avons skin so soft has the added side effect of repelling insects. If sat outside I use citronella candles ..... having said all that I still get bitten !

Have you ever watched bugs life? Don't go into the light lol!

Apparently Avon's Skin So Soft was generally recommended but they changed the formula and now it doesn't work.
