The solar trap PEOPLE like to boast of how much money they are saving because they have installed solar panels (Letters). What they don't admit is that their neighbours, and the rest of us, are paying for their subsidised electricity for the next 25 years. They won't be suffering fuel poverty but others - who can't afford the £8,000 for installation - will.

    Although Centers for Disease Control (CDC) light traps and other battery-powered traps can be deployed virtually anywhere, one of their principal drawbacks is that the batteries have to be recharged daily. Thus, recharging with a solar panel would render them much less labor-intensive. To that...
