I installed this bug zapper which takes care of those nasty pests that make their way in through the door.  It turns on for two hours after sundown.

Filters were added this year and have been a great plus.  They keep the solution from clogging up the jets and keep the solution clean which helps for clean roots and the tanks stay clean.  They are Rain-Bird fliters for hafe inch black pipe.
