The Miatec Bug Zapper and Fly Swatter eliminates pests with a simple, one-stroke swat or swing. Whether you're barbecuing, picnicking outdoors, or clearing the air of bugs indoors, this racquet-shaped tool will rid the air quickly and safely with no spray or liquid residue. The Miatec Zapper disables the bug via electric shock, thus dispelling use of any chemicals. This is safe for the user, for the environment, and prevents mess. The trapped and neutralized bugs can be subsequently discarded in the trash can. The Zapper employs a discreetly placed activation button to function; thus it is child-proof and tamper-resistant. It is lightweight, maneuverable, and easily cleaned. The Zapper is made of sturdy material. Its electric function is guaranteed to perform optimally at all reasonable temperatures and weather conditions. It works on 2 AA batteries, which are easily replaced. The electric zapping action that disables the bugs is barely felt by the user. However, the Zapper is a tool and not a toy. Therefore please exercise caution when using it.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought this thing to deal with mosquitoes, but since the zika scare, the gubmint must be doing something, as I haven't been bit in months, and usually I get bit on an almost daily basis, even in our mild winters. Nonetheless, some winged things have periodically found their way into my den, and when I don't want to rescue them, I pop the batteries in this thing.
First off, it will definitely work without the batteries, once charged, at least once, and pressing the button is really only helpful to tell that your batteries are working. I can't say yet how fast it goes through them. I've been keeping the batteries out of the unit just in case something accidentally triggers it, but I feel okay leaving them in at this point-- just needed a safe place to put it, really.
Even small insects like gnats are fine. I was a little startled by the initial zap, as it was louder and a little brighter than expected. I thought, shoot, I'm going to set my curtains on fire. Nope...
Swatter does in fact work, at least when I tried with my finger. The problem is I tried it when the button wasn't pushed so I could verify this would be safe around children. I'm disappointed, what's the point in the button if it does nothing at all. This would never pass ul rating, I'm now curious if I received a defective unit or if it's even safe to leave batteries in it without them draining quickly with no use.
Worthless. I bought this zapper for the many wasps and carpenter bees that like to hang out on my porch. It made the zapping sound and knocked them down, but after a few stunned seconds, they could fly away. Unless you want to be stepping on the insects to actually kill them, I suggest you skip this one.
