Elucto Electric Bug Zapper Review
We have access to so many efficient cool looking bug destroying utensils nowadays. It makes me a little jealous that they weren’t around when I was coming up.
But I still have the ability to use them now so it’s not as bad as it seems.
Today I’m going to review this electric bug zapper. I have a bug zapper personally and I will tell you from the jump that these things are the truth. But they do have their flaws like all man-made things do.
I will be sure to cover everything I can about the time.
By the end of the review, you should know everything you need to know about this bug zapper and rather its something you should invest in or not.
Elucto Electric Bug Zapper Review
Having a bug zapper can benefit you in many ways. I will go over a few of the ways later in the post. I have had mine for about 3 years. It’s been dropped, thrown, stepped on, and just left sitting dormant for months. But it still works and that’s all that matters and is why I still use it when necessary.
It looks fun and innocent. But I will be the first to tell you that yes these things can shock you and will shock you if you do not handle them the proper way. Do not let your children play with them or use them without adult supervision. You don’t need to play with it either or any other adult teen etc.
About The Elucto Electric Bug Zapper
The zapper is very durable. Like I mentioned previously mine has been through a lot and still works as it did when I first used it.
It only takes one contact swat to get the job done. If you swing and connect with your target it will ie instantly. If you catch one and it gets caught on the wires inside the zapper you can cook the bug to a crisp if you’d like. This isn’t recommended for the bugs that didn’t really deserve it. But for mosquitos and flies. I say honey roast them till it hurts.
It makes it a very convenient thing to use when you are having a cookout or eating outside. Because instead of you having to use bug spray or a bug bomb and take the risk of getting some of those chemicals into your drinks or food. You can get the job done without any of those side effects.
You have to press the button at the bottom of the zapper in order for you to activate the electrical charge inside the item.
If you just swing it without holding the button nothing will happen to the bug you are trying to get. Also, the zapper will not shock you if the button is not being held. So if the zapper is just sitting around. It is not activated so it will not shock anyone who touches it.
It does not have to be charged like other items I have seen. It is simply powered by two AA batteries. Which will come packed with your order of the zapper. So you do not have to worry about buying batteries with this item. If you do decide to purchase it.
The Good About The Bug Zapper
- It is effective and can make slaughtering pesky bugs a breeze. If you have issues with bug sprays, bombs etc. This can be very convenient for you.
- I like how it is designed like a tennis racket and you can literally swing your way to victory with it.
- It’s lightweight and has a very sturdy grip for you so you can safely grab and hold onto the item.
- Its double layered. The part that actually shocks the bugs is inside the zapper. Like its a layer on the outside and another on the inside. The one on the inside is what does the damage.
- It does not kill batteries quickly. You would think an item like this would drain the lifespan out of a pair of batteries with ease. But it does not honestly. When I first purchased mine I was using it daily for about 2 months and the batteries did not go out on me.
The Bad About The Bug Zapper
Now I wouldn’t be giving you the honest truth if I didn’t go into the negatives about this item as well. It’s not too bad but it still needs to be put on the table so here it goes.
The zapper does not kill everything. If the bug does not get directly onto the zapper and stick. It’ll get off and fly away.
- I have noticed this to happen with things like Carpenter bees, June bugs, and stink bugs all are very big and bulky insects so it’s understandable.
- If you stick your hand in the inside of the zapper it will shock you. It’s not a drop dead type of shock. But it does hurt and you shouldn’t be sticking your fingers or anything else in there.
- Flies see this thing coming a mile away. Flies are by far the hardest bugs to kill with this item. I have landed a few with good timing and pure luck. But most of the time it takes me about 10-15mins to kill a fly with this thing depending on the size of the area.
- Nats aren’t phased by this zapper. Nats are so small and quick its hard to catch them on this. Like I said before in order for the zapper to even work the bug has to make direct contact with the wires on the inside layer of the item. The nats are so small that it may not even get noticed by the electric charge in the zapper.
What Others Have To Say About The Item
Well, that is very convincing. It looks like other customers have had the same positive experience with this bug zapper as I have.
No doubt that this item is legit and can make you war on bugs battle a bit easier. But it will all boil down to how bad you want the bugs gone and if you are willing to physically push forward with your attack.
What Does The Bug Zapper Kill
The bug zapper will kill any insect that you can get inside the wires. If the bug won’t fit between the wires this bug zapper will not be effective against them.
It is ideally used for the following incests
- Flies – When you can catch them
- Mosquitos – I personally think it is the most effective against mosquitos. I live in the south so we get a lot of them in the afternoon more so if you live around a lake or pond. I can go outside at any given time in the afternoon and this thing will light up like a Christmas tree.
- Anything That Flies & Can Fit Inside The Zapper’s Wires
Do not try to kill ants or wasps, yellow jackets, or hornets (nests) with a bug zapper.
Ants are on the ground and would literally have to crawl up the zapper and commit suicide in order for this to work against them. The ants won’t do that and will rather put their time and energy into bitting and stinging you. No bug zappers for ants period.
Wasp, Yellow Jackets, and Hornets can be killed by this zapper. If you find them alone which is rare but possible. The only issue is that these bugs usually don’t fly around your home alone and try to annoy you like flies mosquitos do. They are usually on a nest somewhere in small or large groups. In order for you to get them on this zapper, you will have to do a few things.
- Get close enough to the nest to actually be able to stretch your arm out and make contact with the bugs.
- Hope that they all go onto the zapper and not elsewhere. If these bugs fly anywhere other than your bug zapper you will be stung a lot.
- Make sure that what you are looking at is actually all the bugs on the nest. Most of the time these nests have a lot more insects on them than we think. If you try to take down a nest with a bug zapper and you assume that it is only 5 or 10 bugs on a nest and you find out after the fact that it is 25 you will wake up in someone’s hospital.
That’s all I have for this review guys and gals. I spoke on everything I could think of. The bug zapper is effective and can help you with your bug issues. But it requires work and persistence. You will have to be very active and have good hand-eye coordination for you to get the best results.
