Electronic fly and insect swatter. Requires 2 AA batteries.
Bigger head than most fly swatters so easier to catch moths, I find. Flies a bit more difficult to catch, but seems a fairly instant death once caught. Better than fly spray at least.

had one of these for a while, gotta say it's a lot of fun at times especially with moths of a night, press the button and swing away and watch it fry

Lol I've never heard of these, they sound fun!! Heat added

what else are you supposed to do with this?

Well, if you smack your missus on the ass with it, the sparks sure fly!

Wasps and flies come alive again after about 15 seconds, it's weird. They fly around like they're insane, so it must zap their brains. I tend to swat and squash to avoid this happening, it seems cruel.

Just mind the wife don't smack you on the nads with it when you get out the shower X)

Hahaha!!!

I spank my wife's bottom with it

I had a similar one, whacked a 9v battery on it and replaced the wire grid with two small pointy bits of metal and used it to zap my unruly teenage stepson when he got lippy. Well worth the price.

These are awesome!!! They are fantastic for people with Asthma or other medical conditions where you can't use sprays. Also if you have a fish tank or just hate using chemicals. They are also a gazillion times more hygienic than a traditional fly swatter.
Do be aware that it is inevitable that you will eventually zap yourself LOL

And this comment obviously came from some right numbskull!! oO Say no more.........

These are awesome, I have 2!
Great for stag weekends!

i had one it snapped on the first swipe, now use a cheap badminton racquet and its great, think its the speed you can swing it at that catches the flies out!!

What i learned after buying one:

1) You will spend the first hour or so with it in your hand waiting for a fly to come in.

2) A fly will come in the second you put it down.

3) Don't bother if the fly heads for the window, you end up fumbling with the blinds and clouting the window while the fly escapes to another room.

4) You will learn to close the doors before chasing the fly to prevent no.3 from happening again.

5) It doesn't kill the bigger bluebottles or wasps as easily. The first belt tends to make them more angry, resulting in you smashing the house up in an attempt to catch them the second time round.

6) If one gets caught in the mesh, don't fry it too much. The smell will make you vomit.

7) Keep it out of reach of small children, they will probably think it's a toy tennis racket!

8. I am still learning after a week of ownership.

Boy, you must lead a boring life with far tooooo much time on yer hands!!

Not really, I just don't like flies in the house!

This is great. I get the insects every time. In fact, if I hold it close to them, they just fly straight into the meshwork.

This has a layer on both sides over the actual metalwork that fries the insects so you don't accidentally fry yourself.

The actual hitting area is a bit small however. But I guess I'm comparing it to ones I have previously used in Bangladesh which were larger. No big deal though.

If you zap for too long, it does smell, but not that bad, and it's nice to see the sparks!

Great deal for 99p. And beats all other insect killers in my opinion.

****!!

best is they sell these in clas ohlson,B&Q,aldi for £4 to £8!!!exactly the same thing oO

The cheap ones are OK but as has been mentioned before they can be a bit flimsy.

Now it's not a Hot Deal (though it's got £3 off the amazon RRP for what that's worth) but the Rolls Royce of bug zappers is THE EXECUTIONER - http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-ExecutionerTM-Mosquito-Swatter-Zapper/dp/B000MU2MJA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1376957915&sr=8-1&keywords=executioner+bug+zapper

Our one of these has been going for years - touched it with my finger once, won't be doing that again.

Says you waiting for people to comment and give there actual opinions and thoughts, what a idiot

What's this like (in terms of quality/longevity) compared to the Executioner??

it's been there for ages. Got mine 2 years ago.

Not great build quality or maybe I should use lighter tennis balls.

wow, really?? Coming from someone who sits on here all day slaggin off others?

These are a live saver, as I tend to wake up with mosquito bite over my arm or feet. I have one in each room so that I can make sure that there no fly or annoying mosq ruining my night.

I remember the very first time zapping one, it created such a loud bang that it scare the **** out of me. Causing my hand to let go of the thing and end up wrecking it.

(Cruel it may seem but they asked for it once they entered my house)

badminton racket is all need!

In my house it went from ooh dad theres a fly... to Yeh DAD DAD DAD!! thereS A fly!!!!

My boyfriend set a moth on fire with one of these last year! Quite a lot of fun - it's always satisfying when you set a fly on fire!!!

Thanks OP!
