They re-appeared just in the last few days and I had to plug it back in after it being unplugged since November.

That is a good point Silver. I've never experienced anything like those temperatures but I get colder when it is wet and windy than on our frosty mornings.

Only -7 F air temp now, so not too bad, except for the wind.

I don't mind it until it gets below minus 10. For me that is the point where it is cold. We haven't hit zero yet this year but it is well below freezing most every day. Good thing is we have no mosquitoes, rattle snakes, or homeless people.

Lots of them still made but most are junk with little IC boards in them that don't last one season. .
Look at flea markets for the older ones.
All a zapper really needs is a hi voltage transformer for the grid, maybe a smaller transformer/ballast & starter for the light and that's it. There may be 2 little wafer capacitors on the lines between transformer and grid but all they are for is to cut down on radio interference.

Stinger brand sucks. Black Flag brand suck.
Flowtron makes the 2 older ones I have.
