Re: RC: Stinger Fly Zappers!!!!
Friend of mine tried these things.....horses seem to be very sensitive
to the frequency of the "zap" in some way other than visual. You really
don't want to use these things anyway. First, they attract everything
within hundreds of yards to the barn.....insects who would not be
present otherwise. Number 2, they kill beneficial insects as well.
Same way with Japanese Beetle Traps.....the "sex lure" ones. They
attract all the beetles to YOUR yard, and actually increase your
population. (However, I encourage my neighbors to use them) <grin>
