Those devices have no light.
What attracts the insects? Is it just random luck that kills whatever insects happen to fly into it?

Correct. I watch where the flys tend to "sit". That's where I put it. Lately I noticed that using a small pail seems to attract them. I put the zapper over the pail and get more of them. I'm not sure why?
