urine. I can't reply to an old post, I'll try including a link. Not
sure what the convention is.
Anyway, I had tried a CFL but it was not successful.
Today I bought a $10 linear fluorescent blacklight, the 24 inch
version. It seems to be considerably more powerful than the CFL;
posters etc. light up from a good distance.
Once again i didn't find any animal stains even in a known spot.
But, I'm curious as to how this thing works. It is cheap plastic, and
the housing at the end where the switch and power cord reside seems
too small and much too light to contain a ballast. The whole thing
weighs barely more than the tube.
