How should I set up my Bug Zapper?

  • For best results, use the bug zapper with the lights off or dimmed.
  • Hang the device at least 6 ft (1.8 m) from the ground and 1 ft (0.3 m) from any objects or the wall.


  • Hang the bug zapper 6– 8 ft. (1.8– 2.4 m) off the ground.
  • Place the bug zapper 25 ft. (7.6 m) away from the area intended for human activity.
  • Position the bug zapper between the source of insects (woods, lowlands, swamps etc) and the area to be protected.
  • Plug into a compatible extension cord designed for outdoor use, a violet glow will be emitted by the device within a few seconds.
