I dont know how much current is in a streamer nor do I know exactly what
it is.  But what I do know is that if the streamers reach out towards tree
branches, they die...  when I run my coil at night and after it is time to turn
it off and shut it down, there are lots of  dead bugs on and around the coil

soooooooo   obvioulsy there is enuf power / potency to the streamers to cause

I will never intentionally touch a streamer on any coil Coiling is a spectator
sport  not a contact sport :)
