It seems that your two bug zappers are actually the same bug zapper as mine (Your two bug zappers Tecno Home 2x8W T5 and Zephir 2x18W T8 and my Sachs 2x6W T5, are all made by the same manufacturer, under different labels, as all looks the same in design). You have actually the same bug zappers as my new one actually, but just with different lamp wattages .

Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

Yes they are very similar and they have also FSL tubes. I've bought them about 2 years ago. I've used the 8W version in the two last summer in the evenings 3-4 hours at day for a total of about 6 months, the tubes are still ok with only barely visible signs of wear.

The only suggestion that I can say in general with the bug zappers used indoor is to keep closed the windows or apply mosquito net, otherwise you will obtain the opposite effect by attracting a lot of insect from outdoor!

Are your OEM starters Philite WFS-2 4-40W/100-130V, like my starters of my bug zapper?
I have mosquite net on my windows, and only one of the windows open.

No they are WEN TAI, I cannot see other details from the photos(and open the ballast compartment is not very easy).

We had WEN TAI's here, total junk - They have the random-blob shaped glow bottle that is so stressed that it sometimes loses vacuum at the seals just from the heat of normal work, quite blink happy, keeps glowing slightly after lamp started, and the outer enclosure plastic is very prone to decay under UV to the point that the starter shatters if you touch it after it worked for a while (if it was exposed to the light of the lamps)

Indeed they don't seem to be high quality starters, but at the moment they work well and being enclosed they aren't subjected to any UV radiation. When they or the tubes will fail I will swap them with philips S2 starters.
