Product Description

Knock their lights out. Keep bugs away from your next barbecue without resorting to unsafe insect sprays with the Charcoal Companion Amazing Handheld Bug Zapper. It's environmentally safe…unless you're a bug. The handheld bug zapper, shaped like a tennis racket, kills insects when they touch the surface of the net via an electric current. The net is made of 46 carbon steel wires. The zapper operates on two AA batteries (not included); for safety, it activates when you simultaneously press the two buttons on its handle. The bug zapper is safe for either indoor or outdoor use; however, please exercise caution when the zapper is activated as it will cause a shock. This is not a toy. The whole zapper measures 18" by 6.4", while the head of the zapper measures 10.4" by 6.4".

In the summer time, the place I live is infested with black widows everywhere. They balloon into the house, build webs around the bulkhead, doors, etc. We're talking infestation folks. Last thing I need is a guest to sit too close to a widow tending a missed eggsack and deliver a bite.

I grew frustrated using my stove lighter, rubber bands, and Formula 409 was totally useless Against widows. One fully grown widow seemed to even chuckle and - dare I say - give me her version of the bird as she crawled OUT OF A FROTHING POOL OF 409. Inconceivable!

Then my girlfriend's mom gave me this zapper for my b-day, ironically, because she knows I love insects (???).

Anyway, I offensively left it in the corner to dust-over until I realized this would be perfect for widows (even though I'm strongly against killing non-poisonous spiders).

Well, the light bulb went off and, by the Power of Grayskull, I launched a full assault on the young and old widows around the house. I simply turned the Zapper on and first blocked their escape back into their hidey-hole then slowly moved zapper towards the middle of the web where they were. Eventually, they run out of web and the Zapper's Fury crumples them into a smoldering ball at my feet. A-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

A-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Highly recommended.

I bought this little goodie as a lark and was surprised to learn what kind of a zap and spark one could get from tiny little batteries .....
Certainly not the tool to have if you have any kids .... OR .. if you have any co-ordination problems and may hit yourself or anyone around you ... Touch the metal parts of the swatter and you will very quickly learn what religion is all about with stinging ZAP and a spark ....
Flying bugs are fried immediately ... so if you have any fear or allergy of wasps or bees ... well then this baby is for you ...
Oh yes ... for those of you with an imagination the Amazing Bug Zapper is as close to Darth's light sword as you can legallay get ... LOL

Talk about a fun and entertaining way to swat flies! I had a blast attacking a springtime fly swarm when this package first arrived, and I was impressed with its ease of use and effectiveness.

BUT...

The trigger button on the handle is flimsy plastic, and I hadn't used this very long before the internal connection snapped, rendering my cool new toy -- I mean, fly killer -- into a fairly useless lightweight paddle. I recommend you look for one with a more durable construction.

This is one of the best products I ever purchased. No more waiting for bugs/flys to land before you can have a chance to get them. With this handheld bug zapper you can zap the bugs anytime you can reach them, you do not have to wait for them to land. Just hold down the 2 buttons so the red light comes on, then once the bug makes contact with the metal bars on the handheld bug zapper it will kill the bug/fly/bee/etc. Some bigger pests like bees will take a second to zap, once they make contact with the metal bars they will stick from the electric current, then they will zap seconds later. Really small bugs zap instantly, people that see this will want one also, it is great. Kind of like a fireworks show at night. This thing zaps bugs just like a regular outdoor bug zapper except it is a handheld zapper. It is completely safe as long you you do not touch the metal bars while the red light is on, or shortly after the light goes off be carefull because the bars still have some charge in them. So do not touch the metal bars unless you want a good shock. You can see how much power this zapper has by pushing the 2 buttons so the red light comes on, then touch the metal bars of the zapper to something metal and you will see and hear a nice zap spark (kind of fun also).

My wife hates bugs, and I bought this for her. But I liked it so much I ordered another one and will buy more for my parents. The best thing about Bug Zapper is that you don't have to deal with the 'bug juice' (if you swat them), and you don't need to wait for the bugs to land and wait for your swat. I even used it near a bee hive, and it was the best defense against them. A few cautions - 1) don't zap yourself, it's pretty painful, 2) don't hit metal objects, you'll see sparks flying (incl. some windows - "Low-E" windows have metallic coating), 3) you can't kill fruit flies with this zapper since it has horizontal bars that these small bugs pass through. However, you can find double or triple meshed version on ebay or sharper image if you have the urge to kill all sizes of bugs. 4) some big bugs need extended roasting - I've seen a few biggies come back to life after a brief coma.

All in all, it's quite entertaining to use.

I ordered this bug zapper for my own use, having owned one last year. They are, in general, cheaply made and don't last long, so its not like I have high standards out of proportion to the standard out there. However, this zapper hits a new low. It is an absolute piece of you know what. I can't think of anything more cheaply made than, maybe, what used to come in a cereal box. And it didn't work. I just read the company's return policy and because I had the audacity to open the package and actually put batteries into it and try to make it work, they will now charge me a 20% restocking fee. Oh, yes, they also won't pay for shipping .... and they won't reimburse me the shipping cost I paid to receive this piece of junk. DON'T BUY THIS 'PRODUCT'. Buy a different brand from a different company.
