Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Grid resist clogs.
The killing grid has a non-clogging design and it uses advanced electronic insect control technology.
Two year warranty
The zapper works effectively for up to ½ an acre radius, which means it is ideal for small to medium-sized yards.
Maybe the most important thing about the Flowtron BK-15D is that it has a non-clogging grid. As a result, it will kill the bugs but they won’t clog.

What reviewers didn't like

Shorter range and shorter power cord.
The only known flaw for the Flowtron Insect Killer is the short cord design so you must provide your own extension for the cord when you use it outdoors.
Expensive add ons.
Chord is too short so you may need an extension.
The build quality is not consistent, some customers had problems with this.
