For use indoors or outdoors, Z-Bug Bulb provides bright white, ambient lighting to any space with its 600 lumen LED.  The 4 NUV LEDs emit a 395nm near ultraviolet glow, which mosquitoes and other flying insects find very attractive. Surrounding the NUV LEDs is a 1,000 - 1,200V high-voltage grid that kills the allured insects on contact. Z-Bug Bulb includes Z-Bug Bulb Sweeper to remove insect remains from the grid housing.

Q: Can you hear the bugs getting "zapped"?

A: The noise generally associated with bug lights is caused primarily by the exoskeleton of the insect.

For most small bugs, including mosquitoes, you likely wouldn't hear a noise. It is possible that for

larger insects you could hear a noise.


Q: Does the UV light actually attract mosquitoes?

A: All bright light attracts flying insects. In particular, many scientists agree that mosquitoes can see

and are attracted to UV light. When the flying insect is drawn towards the light they come in contact

with the electrically charged grid that zaps and kills them.


Q: Does the Z-BUG BULB work both in a porch light (with flip switch) and a regular lamp (with a

turning switch)?

A: Yes. The Z-BUG BULB has two settings: 1) Flip On or Switch On and both LED lighting and bug

zapping functions come on. 2) Flip On or Switch On a second time and the LED lighting function goes

Off but the bug zapping function stays On. Flip Off or Switch Off and everything turns off. Note: If the

light is off for more than 10 seconds, it will reset and start over.


Q: Does the Z-BUG BULB have to be on for the bug zapper to work, or will it kill flying bugs even

with the light off?

A: The Z-BUG BULB has to be on in order to attract and kill the flying insects.


Q: Will this Z-BUG BULB work effectively in an outdoor recessed (can) light?

A: Yes, to the extent that the blue-tinted bug light escapes the lighting can.


Q: Will insects fall to the outside of the bulb or will they also fall inside the BUG BULB’s zapper

cage? Will I need to clean it?

A: This depends largely on the way that the bulb stands within the fixture. To clean, turn off the power

switch then remove bulb from socket and shake out any bug remains. You can also use the Z-BUG

BULB brush that comes with each Bulb and carefully sweep out any bug remains.


Q: Is the Z-BUG BULB water and rain proof? Will it short out if it gets wet?

A: The Z-BUG BULB is not water proof. It is rated for humidity, so if covered by a fixture it would be

protected like any other light bulb.


Q: Can I used it for 240v lights?

A: The Z-BUG BULB will only work on 110V power systems.


Q: Is the Z-BUG BULB UL (USA) or CSA (Canada) approved?

A: No, UL or CSA approval is not actually required or necessary for light bulbs.


Q: At what distance will the Z-BUG BULB attract flying bugs?

A: The exact "reach" will vary based on your lighting set up. Generally, it should attract bugs as far as

75-100 feet away or as far as the UV light is visible to the flying bugs.


Q: Can this be used indoors also?

A: The Z-Bug Bulb can be used indoors or outdoors.


Q: UV is ultraviolet, but what are NUV LEDs?

A:  Ultraviolet wavelengths range from 10nm up to 400nm.  The wavelengths that are found in the 350nm to 400nm range are often referred to as Near-UV, since they fall near the outer end of the overall UV spectrum.

Q - What is the Prop 65 warning, and should I be worried before I purchase?
A - Our “WARNING” notices are mandated by California Proposition 65. We believe that our products are completely safe for consumer use and if any Prop 65 listed chemicals were to be present, we believe they would be within the safe harbor levels for exposure as published by Prop 65.
Our lighting products use Polycarbonate (PC) lenses for light projection, and Bisphenol A (BPA) is a precursor chemical used to make PC lenses. Prop 65 identifies BPA as a cause of reproductive toxicity.
Our lighting products use Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) plastic for battery carriers and other enclosures, and Styrene is a precursor chemical used to make ABS plastic. Prop 65 identifies Styrene as a chemical that can cause cancer.
Please note that PC and ABS plastics are not listed polymers under Prop 65, but the identified precursor chemicals are listed and in some cases these finished plastics may contain low levels of the chemical in the plastic. Therefore, out of an abundance of caution we decide to adopt this marking in 2017 to alleviate any legal issues that could arise from an improperly marked product sold in California. These warnings are not required by FDA or other Federal agencies.
