But do not give up, everything has a solution. And as for this particular problem, you may need to get help from technology. There have already been some insect killers existing for quite some time now that ‘zap’ insects and bugs.

Pros

The Flowtron BK-15D Electronic Insect Killer is a lantern-style insect killer that uses nontoxic ultraviolet light to get rid of biting flies, mosquitoes, and other insects in a 1.5-acre area. This one is considered cleaner and safer than other chemical equivalents. Also, its original, non-clogging killing grid eradicates the chances of congesting the grid that can short-circuit the unit.

A clogged grid could also cause flare-ups of insect remains. In addition, it features a high-impact construction as well as protected outer enclosure for pets, birds, wildlife, and children to avoid contact with the charged grid.

Customers are also happy with how it helps them get through the night bug-free. They can plug it in 24/7 and it still works despite the continuous use. Its light is not too bright, making it serve as a soft night light outside the house.

The zapping sound of a bug being fried every now and then will become music to your ears as you know that bugs can’t get near you.

This insect killer is also small which makes it good for a half an acre of protection from bugs. If you have a large deck or patio with a fairly small lawn this is the perfect-sized bug killer.

Having this product also feels like the most environmentally sensitive way to remove bugs off your patio and lawn. And because it only needs 15 watts of power for it to function this product is considered as one of the most affordable insect killers.

In addition, this zapper comes with a strip of bait that is ultraviolet-activated, making it positively lethal against mosquitoes. It has been found to be more effective than citronella torches.

Furthermore, users report that it kills many bugs because it never clogs up. This is because the electric rods do not have cross wires and, instead, are just straight up and down so clogging does not happen. Dead insects just fall straight to the bottom! But even so, be sure to blow clean it once a month.

Cons

There were complaints about the bulb’s life span since it stops working after just a few months of continuous use. It is not warranted by Flowtron and replacing the bulb costs around 20 to 30 dollars, which is the same as buying a new unit.

Also, just like other insect killers, this one seemed to attract lots of moths, but very few mosquitoes, which are the ones that actually bother humans.

Verdict

This one is actually a ‘trial and error’ product for users. Reviews about Flowtron BK-15D Electronic Insect Killer, 1/2 Acre Coverage are mixed as some find it works great while others see it as useless. Though it may still fall under the recommendable category since positive reviews outweigh the negative ones, you still have to see for yourself if this insect killer really does kill annoying and biting bugs.

However, if you want to focus on the benefits, well, many users claim that it zaps over a dozen bugs with just a minimal noise. Of course, when you hear the zapping sound that means it has killed a bug, letting you know that it actually works. And even if its cord is really short, less than a foot, it is not a hindrance for it to work beautifully.
