it's black light (not blue light) to attract insect

Unlike Don's beautiful Boston where they don't have scorching hot summer, summer here is not just hot, but also full of annoying and blood sucking insects. Trying to be environmentally friendly by reducing the chemical use (still need to use some), one of the popular solution is to have insect destroyers (insect zappers).

Kambrook Insect Destroyer

A few years back, I bought a Kambrook Insect Destroyer (KP15). It worked well, until one day I couldn't turn it on at all. The lamp was dead. I then stopped using it.

Few days ago, I called the customer service line, and ordered 5 lamps. To my surprise, those UV light fluorescent are called "black light", not "blue light" as I always referred it to so.

Well, such expense relating to annoying insects is something our good friend Don who lives in beautiful Boston and picturesque Quincy would never understand. Except some beautiful snow (which I can't imagine Don complained about beautiful snow), beautiful Boston is known to be a natural disaster free area - no bush fire danger, not in cyclone path, and not earthquake prone area.
