The Bug Stops Here

From our roots as an automobile radio manufacturer in 1920, we’ve evolved into a global leader in outdoor solutions, committed to creating a bug-free environment since 1974.

After over a century of innovation, our mission is clear: to make sure nothing – especially not mosquitoes – gets in the way of your relaxation and enjoyment.

In 2023, C+A Global, a company with proven expertise in purchasing and redeveloping manufacturing companies, acquired Flowtron, committed to reigniting our mission of keeping the bugs at bay, indoors and out.

Today, we’re proud to design, develop, and manufacture our products in our Whitsett, NC facility. Every item that leaves our warehouse proudly carries the ‘Made in America’ label, finding its way to major retailers across the USA, Canada, and beyond, and spreading their bug-busting skills worldwide.

How do Flowtron Bug Zappers work?

Flowtron Bug Zappers work by combining powerful ultraviolet light with our patented octenol attractant and 5600V killing grid. Flies and other light-sensitive flying insects are attracted by the UV light and octenol attractant and immediately killed on contact with our patented non-clogging killing grid, which is powered by a 5600V transformer. The insect remains, uncontaminated by pesticides, fall down to the ground for natural reabsorption into the ecosystem.

Where is the best place to hang my Flowtron Bug Zapper?

Your Flowtron Bug Zapper should ideally hang at least 25 feet away from wherever you gather outside and 6-8 feet off the ground, so that the bugs are drawn to the insect zapper, instead of you. Wall brackets are available for purchase on our website.

How does Flowtron Sex Lure work?

The Flowtron Sex Lure makes your insect killer more effective in luring and killing house flies and garbage flies. The powerful pheromone works 24 hours a day, combining with UV light to attract flies to your zapper.

How does the octenol attractant work?

Octenol mimics human breath, luring biting insects like mosquitoes toward the mosquito trap and away from you and your family.

Is the Flowtron Bug Zapper safe to use around children and pets?

The Flowtron Bug Zapper is perfectly safe to use around children and pets! The exterior polycarbonate grid has small openings that are big enough for flies but not big enough for most fingers, and no chemicals are used.
