sure no transportation damages have occurred.
The carton should contain the following:
1 - Bugwacker electronic bug killer

A. Assemble the threaded
fitting (2) into gold colored hanging ring (1).
I
Appropriate extension cords and devices for retaining
an extension cord connection to the Bugwacker power
cord are available at your local Sears store. Replace or
repair damaged cords.
Your Bugwacker has a grounding plug that looks like the
plug shown below and is intended for use on a circuit
that has an outlet as shown below.
INSTALLATION
1. Your Bugwacker should be hung or post mounted
from a pole, bracket or post mounted from a pole,
bracket or post (available as accessories)at a height
of 6 to 8 feet above the ground. This is the flying
altitude for many types of light-sensitive insects and
will increase the unit's effectiveness.
2. Plug electrical cord into a three-wire grounded outdoor extension cord. Lamp will emit a soft bluish
glow.
A momentary arc may occur across the high
voltage grids when first plugged in. This-is
due to the surge of electricity.
It will stop
and resume normal operation.
3. Refer to Illustration B.
Placement of the unit is
essential to its maximum
effectiveness. Since the
Bugwacker is a luring
device, it should not be
located in the area intended for human activity.
It should be placed 25 to
50 feet away, and between
the source of insects (i.e.
woods, lowlands, etc.) arid
the areas to be protected.
Use only three-wire extension cords which have threeprong grounding type plugs and three-pole receptacles
which accept the products plug.
GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS
Your Bugwacker is equipped with an appropriate threeconductor cord and three-prong grounding type plug to
fit the proper grounding type receptacle. To reduce the
risk of electrical shock, plug must be plugged into an
appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded
B. Screw hanging ring and
fitting into hole in hood
and tighten until snug.
Note:
The electrical rating of the extension cord must be as
great as the electrical rating of your Bugwacker.

B
If additional light is required in the area of human
activity, it should be provided by yellow light.
Studies have shown that insects are less attractive
to yellow light.
4. Sears Bugwackers are ideal for backyards, pools,
patios, summer homes, trailer homes, campgrounds,
marinas, outdoor recreational areas, gardens or anywhere flying insects are a problem.
EXTENSION CORDS
Outdoor extension cords must be used with this Bugwacker. Use extension cords marked SJW-A, or SJTW-A
and tagged "suitable for use with outdoor appliances".
Consult a qualified electrician or serviceman if the
grounding instructions are not completely understood,
or if doubt as to whether proper grounding exists.
OPERATION
1. General: Your new Sears Bugwacker is designed to
attract light-sensitive flying insects with black light,
and to kill them cleanly without the use of poisons,
fogs, sprays or chemicals.
Insects are drawn to the fluorescent bulb, and killed
by an electrostatic grid when they pass through it.
Thd insects do not have to actually touch the grid to
be killed. The moisture in their bodies is enough to
trigger the arc, so that even the tiniest of bugs are
eliminated.
The handsome, lantern-styled Bugwacker sheds a soft,
glowing decorative light which is harmless to your
eyes and costs only pennies a day to enjoy. The 70
watts of Black Light energy make this unit a powerful
insect killer that is ecologically safe, effective and economical to operate.
2. Night Flying Insects: Night flying insects such as
mosquitoes, gnats, moths, etc., respond to the black
light rays emitted by the Bugwacker's ultra-violet
bulbs. These insects are sensitive to light, and take
cover during the heat of day in grass,shrubs and
other foliage.

4 times as effective in luring
and killing biting mosquitoes
than Bugwacker alone. Emits
moisture, heat and carbon
dioxide, which makes the mosquitoes respond to the light as
if a human were there.
3. Day Flying Insects: Day flying insects such as flies,
hornets, beetles and wasps do not respond mainly to
black light rays as do night flying insects, These insects respond more to odor.
Your Bugwacker can be equipped to attract these
insects by use of a bait tray available as an accessory.
Note:
Bait tray cannot be used when Bugwacker

MAINTENANCE
1. Cleaning: Your Sears Bugwacker is equipped with
self-cleaning grids, and requires no special maintenance other than cleaning insect debris from the bottom of the unit. This should be done frequently
using a small brush or blower such as portable hair
dryer, or the exhaust attachment of a vacuum cleaner.
BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE UNIT BEFORE
CLEANING.
Hornets, beetles or wasps can be lured with bait consisting of honey, syrup, perfume or a mixture of
sugar and water
House Flies can be lured with meat or fish scraps or
with a special pheromone available as an accessory,
(Stock no. 14322), at your Sears retail store. This
fly pheromone acts as a sex attractant, and is effective in luring houseflies, blowflies, garbage flies and
many other types commonly found in yards and
barns.
Stable Flies can be lured to Bugwacker by using
stable fly attractant accessory (Stock no. 14323),
available at your Sears store.
Gypsy moths can be lured during daylight hours with
a gypsy moth sex pheromone available as an accessory (Stock no. 14321) at your Sears retail store. Use
of this pheromona also increases the effectiveness of
the Bugwacker in attracting and killing this pest during evening hours.
4. Most insect pests have a breeding cycle of ten to
fourteen days. Daily operation of your Bugwacker
is recommended to reduce insect population by
interrupting this breeding cycle.
Night flying insects become active at dusk and again
just prior to dawn. For maximum effectiveness, operate _/our Bugwacker 24 hours a day or use photocell for automatic operation.
5. Automatic "ON/OFF"
Feature: Refer to Illustration
C. Your Sears Bugwacker is equipped with a photoelectric cell that turns the butbON at dusk and OFF
at dawn. To activate this control, insert a pencil or
insulated screwdriver through the outer protected
screen and move the switch to the "ON" position.
