Solar-Powered Fly Zappers
The "Dungeon of Doom" uses electric current supplied by a solar panel to kill flies. Flies are attracted to the white color of the trap, which fires off a killing blast of electrical current every 1 1/2 seconds. The cur-rent is strong enough to kill flies but won't harm birds or other small animals. The trap does not attract beneficial insects.
It has been proven effective in control-ling flies at USDA's Beltsville (Md.) Re-search Station.
The "Dungeon of Doom" is 14 1/2 in. sq. by 16 in. tall. A second solar-powered trap, called "The Tower of Doom", is 35 in. tall and 26 in. at the base.
They sell for $209.95 and $499.95 plus $14.95 and $16.95 S&H, respectively. Olson Products also manufactures many other insect control products, including sticky fly traps and biting insect traps.
