Has anyone tried solar powered bug zappers?

    Thinking about putting a bug zapper over the run to put a few more bugs in their diet but it's pretty far out in the yard and I don't want to run electricity out there if possible. Anyone tried this? Any thoughts?

    Do they come that way?

    Do you have a schematic for one?

    Not sure the type of battery for the solar panel can discharge in that high voltage.

    They do come that way but no good reviews. Was thinking the high voltage thing would be a problem.
