    I put my bug zapper on the deck to test it out before we hang it ...the next day when I went to move it, there was a nice handful of zapped bugs that collected underneath it

    Just food for thought [​IMG]

    We have them hanging in the pens so when they come out of the run in the morning they get a free protein snack....

    Mostly small beetles and moths, but the girls love them. Often the right times of year the nice fat grasshoppers and june bugs show up as well.
