We have a small creek that runs through our front yard. While I really love it and the way it looks, I don’t like the mosquitos and other flying insects it attracts in warm weather. Sitting outside sometimes becomes crazy. Now with the Zika virus going around in some places, I really don’t like the mosquitoes!
I guess that is the reason I jumped at the chance to review something called the rechargeable bug zapper. This is a large thing that looks about like a tennis racquet.
It doesn’t take batteries but has a foldable electric outlet made in the handle. Pull it out and stick it in the wall when the battery is low.
I haven’t killed any mosquitos with it so far, but I did get the chance to try it out. I was sitting here and heard a bzzzing sound. Finally I checked to see what it was. It was a huge wasp in the window. I am scared of wasps because I know they hurt. John was napping on the couch. I didn’t want it to get him. I was also afraid for my furbabies that might decide it was a sky raisin aka a fly. So scared I would miss I grabbed the bug zapper. I had never used it. I didn’t even push a button on it. I just basically laid it over the wasp. It made a zapping sound and the wasp fell down. I was impressed! The wasp wasn’t.
I think these are well worth having. Especially if you live in a area with a lot of wasps, mosquitos and flying insects that harm more then help.
While it does cost a bit more then a fly swat, they are more effective. This one is $25.99 on Amazon.
I am glad I have one!
