The BUG ZAPPER is the ultimate battery-operated electric fly swatter, effective against Wasps, Flies, Mosquitoes, Gnats, Spiders & Horseflies
Our BUG ZAPPER
, is claimed to be the fastest,
cleanest and most effective insect terminator. Our own review of this product
has been very favourable - looking a bit like a tennis racket, this fly-killer
is lightweight and certainly effective, and seems to generate a lot of curiosity.
The Electro-swat is a cross between a traditional fly swatter and the electrostatic
fly killers that often hang in butchers shops. The result is one of the most effective
(and, dare we say "fun"?
) solutions to the summer fly problem we have seen.
What's more, the Bug Zapper is completely safe
and the replaceable batteries last a long time.
- SAFE alternative to noxious fly sprays,
and no hazard to children (CE approved, Tested according to EN60.335-1
- Ideal for picnics, use in the kitchen & home, while fishing, on the boat,
at barbeques, garden parties, or while camping or in the caravan
- Effective against Wasps, Flies, Mosquitoes, Gnats, Spiders & Horseflies
- Requires two standard AA (1.5 Volt) batteries
- No ugly stains or unhygenic splat marks
Traditional fly swatters can be useful because you can deal
with annoying insects straight away, without having to wait for them to "land"
on a fly-paper or UV electro-static unit. However, since you have to hit the insect
against a solid surface, they often leave an unhygenic stain - not so good if
you have just redecorated your kitchen, and unappetizing if you are sitting down
to lunch outdoors. The problem with "stationary" electronic products, of the type
that try to attract insects with an ultraviolet light, is that they are not so
effective during the day, and are not very attractive to all insects, such as
wasps. Chemical alternatives, such as sprays, can be noxious, and no-one really
likes the idea of inhaling whatever is contained in the spray bottle.
Our Bug Zapper is a battery operated electric fly swatter,
that combines the advantages of a fly swatter (ie deals immediately with the nuisance)
with the effectiveness and hygiene of tradional electronic products.
HOW IT WORKS:
The Electric Fly Swatter requires
2 AA (1.5 volt) batteries to raise the voltage of the electric circuit of the
Bug Swatter to kill insects and wasps while touching it. The output power is relatively
low constituting no hazard to humans or pets. For those requiring a more technical
explanation (the question is usually - how can two 1.5 volt batteries produce
enough power?), suffice to say that the batteries charge a capacitor, which then
discharges instantaneously through the wire mesh when contact is made with an
insect. If you touch the net while the Bug Swatter is turned on, you will feel
a small electric shock - while this is deadly for insects, it is perfectly safe
for humans and pets. Battery life is long - and should last for 1000's of goes.
HOW TO USE IT:
To kill the offending wasp or fly, simply hold the handle,
push the switch and wield the Bug Swatter to make the insect touch the net surface.
The insect will usually drop dead onto the ground - insects killed on the net
surface can be brushed or shaken off (do not use water).
- Picnics, barbecues, garden parties, eating outdoors
- Holidays (mosquitoes in your hotel room!), fishing trips, camping, caravaning,
in the stable, on the farm, on the boat
- In the kitchen, in the children's bedroom (ie especially in places where you
want to avoid chemical contamination!)
- In the office - everyone will want a go!
