If you’re in the market for an industrial fly zapper, then your search ends here. This robust and large aluminium alloy bug zapper can protect an area of up to 40 square meters from flies and other insects.
Powered by a typical 220V main socket, this 2,200-volt machine features two units of 20W ultraviolet tubes which attracts the flies towards it, then electrocutes them with a satisfying sizzle. It’s a purely electrical device that is chemical and pesticide free. This bug zapper has been designed to operate constantly around the clock for a no-flies zone.
If you want the satisfaction of physically blasting flies to smithereens, then the Bug-A-Salt (pronounced as bug assault) Eradication Gun is a unique and efficient way to do it. The product is a spring loaded shotgun which uses common table salt as ammo.
Just load the salt in the hopper, cock the firing mechanism, release the safety and you’re ready to shoot. The minuscule grains of salt act as tiny bullets which are so small that flies don’t have a chance to escape. Although it may not work as well on other insects, for flies, this is one lethal weapon.
A full hopper of salt gives you 80 shots, and as the Bug-A-Salt is purely mechanical, no batteries are needed so you won’t have to worry about running out of power. In fact, you may have so much fun shooting flies you won’t be able to stop.
Using the Flies-Away Ultimate Red Drosophila Fly Trap is so simple; just add water and the included bait, hang it in your yard and let the trap do the work. It can trap and kill up to 20,000 flies for up to 30 days.
