    I got my BugZapp yesterday and I must say I'm having a lot of fun with it. I have a lot of questions about it and it can be hard to navigate the forums due to how many threads there are on the topic, so I thought I'd start a fresh one for anybody who wants to discuss these products.

    My first two tries were successful but a pain because it took hours to heat up. My third try, I preheated it and it's working much better. Maybe a little too well because after about 20 minutes my items were heated up to 150!! I turned it off and am monitoring to make sure it stays above 120 for the required hour. I didn't want it above 150 because I have some power cables and markers that were in my bedside stand drawer in there. When I dumped out the items from my drawer, two BB started running around. I caught one of them and put it in a cup and put the cup in my BugZapp. Is that sick? I just want to make sure it works! The other got into the kitchen sink, so I washed it down the drain. Hopefully it won't survive and come find me.
