I installed it in my 20 year old Stinger bug zapper. It works again. As long as this bulb doesn't go out soon, then it should work fine. I read other reviews that said the bulb didn't last but a couple of months. I have only used it a few days and it works fine. The original bulb was still good..until I dropped it while cleaning it out. I don't get bit by mosquitos as long as the bug zapper is on.

Used the Stinger inside and outside. Super effective while the bulb works, zero effect without the uv light. And am I crazy or is $15 REALLY steep for a bulb? I plugged a splitter into my extension cord and wired a standard bulb socket with a 12" cord, then hung a $2 backlight bulb in the space where the OEM bulb was. Worked perfectly.
There's not a whole lot you can say about a light bulb, but it is easy to install. The stinger unit itself is great, I have three of them on my property. Some may think the replacement bulb is a little on the pricey side, but if you live in a area such as I do, it is well worth it.
Had the unit and the same bulb for well over 20yrs. The bulb just kicked the bucket tonite. Will definitely be heading to Homedepot in the morning. Would recommend this product and the unit to all, it works very good with those big mosquitoes we have here in deep southeast Louisiana, lol.
Works great at killing insects in & around the home, I bought 2 & we have very little insect problems plus we feed the insects to our 2 turtles & the gecko we have. I would definately recommend this product.
