Summer season is the best time to get some fresh air, take a run, go picnicking, and just lay on the grass while letting the afternoons pass into the evening. It’s also the best time for insects to come flying into our faces and mouths, munch on our skin, and make us miss the insect-free months during autumn and winter. If you think that you’re free from swarms of insects in the comfort of your home, then you’re dead wrong. They come in through the doors and windows we leave open in hopes of receiving a non-existent breeze. So what can we do about it?
Well, you can get an electronic bug zapper. Sure, you can opt for the traditional bug spray to get rid of those pesky mosquitoes, but you’re also exposing yourself to harsh chemicals in the process. Ultrasonic insect repellents can also be used to shoo away bugs but they’re not always reliable. The best thing to do for you and your family is to get an electronic insect killer that attracts insects with bright lights and zaps them to death when they venture too close to the device.
Now that we’ve established that electronic insect killers are the way to go, now we have to determine which one to buy. With so many brands available on the market, it can be difficult to decide which one to get. Since we’re so kind, we’ve taken out the guesswork for you. Here’s a list of the three best bug zappers so you can enjoy summer days and nights without constantly scratching insect bites and stings.
This is an excellent choice for getting rid of those buzzing mosquitoes and other annoying insects. This bug killer features an intense ultraviolet light bulb to attract all of those flying bugs into the warmth it delivers. As soon as insects make contact with the metal grid, they’ll experience a high voltage shock which kills them instantly. As long as the device is plugged in, it’ll kill an infinite amount of bugs.
A neat feature of this Hoont bug killer is its detachable ring. It is designed to hang the device up and out of the reach of curious children and pets. The device can also be left free standing on benches or tables if you’re into that kind of thing. The insect carcasses drop to the bottom of the unit onto the conveniently-placed tray which is easily removable for cleaning and disposing of the dead insect bodies. This device can be left running all day, every day, with no problems.
This bug zapper by Hoont is safe to use both indoors and out. It’s a semi-portable device, meaning that it’s lightweight and compact to carry and place onto objects without taking too much space. However, there’s no battery power option for this unit so there’ll have to be an electrical socket nearby to power this zapper.
This bug zapper by Boomile is another high-quality bug zapper for getting rid of annoying mosquitoes. This unique bug killer has three modes (light only, light and zapping function, and zapper only) so you’ll find a use for this bulb even during the cold, insect-free seasons. Although it can be screwed into any standard light bulb socket, we recommend using it in the outdoors only. The reasons will become apparent soon enough.
First of all, this bug killer is in the shape of a standard light bulb, minus the plastic grates and shock-administering mechanism in the middle. Insects are naturally attracted to light, so this light bulb pulls them in while the zapper puts an end to their lives. Unfortunately, the design means that there’s no tray to catch the insects’ bodies as they breathe their last breaths, so you’ll need to have a broom ready to sweep up the mess.
This light bulb doesn’t use Ultraviolet beams to attract or burn the insects so you can rest easy, knowing that the light won’t cause any harm to your skin. This device has a 7 watt light bulb so it’ll do a proper job of lighting up your front porch or room. Boomile boasts that this light bulb can adequately illuminate rooms of up to 600-square feet.
The only problem with this unit is its lack of portability. You can’t really take this anywhere you want unless there’s a bulb socket readily available. However, if you a battery-operated table lamp with standard-sized bulb sockets, then you can definitely use this to fry mosquitoes on the go.
The last entry on this list is another product by Hoont. This electric house for flies and mosquitoes attracts insects in areas of up to 1-½-acres wide. This is an easy-to-clean unit for use in either outdoor or indoor setting.
The first thing we notice is the flashy lightning bolt/Harry Potter scar design on the unit. If the insects don’t understand what it means, they’ll soon find out as they’re pulled into the relaxing gleam of the Ultraviolet glow that ultimately puts them to eternal rest. The bottom tray serves to catch whatever bodies hit the floor. You can remove the tray and dump the bodies out when it gets too full. The ring on top of the zapper’s “roof” is used to keep it hanging and away from children and pets.
The only drawback of this unit is its lack of portability. Unless you have an electric outlet in your tent or fishing canoe, then you’ll have to find another alternative to killing mosquitoes. The good thing is that you can leave the device on all day without it burning out.
And there you have it. This is our list of the best electronic bug killers available on the market. Our top choices of bug zappers can be used indoors or out. They’re extremely portable and have a number of handy features for greater control and bug zapping. Hopefully, this list of bug zappers can help you enjoy the warm days and evenings of summer without having to constantly swap at bugs. If you feel the need to keep your family safe from disease-carrying insect, then get one of these zappers before the summer season begins.
