March 12, 2010, Newsletter Issue #103: Bug Zappers Attract Insects

Tip of the Week

Another problem with mosquito zappers that indiscriminately attract insects using light is that they... well, attract insects. Most of the insects that are attracted to the light will not actually fly into the trap but will sit on the plants, walls, people, etc. around the trap. So, in effect, you can actually increase, instead of decrease, the number of insects in your yard.
