Measuring only 7.5 x 6.7 x 12 inches, the Gootop Bug Zapper looks more like a party lantern than a high-tech pest control tool. But that blue-violet goes beyond setting the mood; it attracts pesky insects, drawing them to it before administering an instant high-voltage zap. They conveniently fall right into the bottom tray, making them easy to dispose of later. To use, you simply plug in the 3.9-foot cord, which turns on the glowing 15-watt bulb. That's it. Here's one reviewer to to fill us in on the action:

"This is the first bug zapper I've ever bought. I have used candles and spray and the like in the past, but I had never tried this. I had a backyard BBQ for the 4th with lots of family over, so I wanted as much protection as possible, so I bought two. I set up the zappers about 4 feet off the ground near sitting level, and at opposite ends of my patio deck...Almost immediately, the popping zaps signifying pesky bug deaths started, and hasn't stopped since. They're especially effective after sunset and nighttime. As a result, not a single guest complained about bug bites, and I wasn't bitten once the whole day! I would strongly recommend this product."

Other users go on to praise the unit for its low price, quiet operation and design (there's a trap door you use to scoot out all the dead bugs). With a full half-acre coverage—that's 21,780 square feet, so fully more than your patio or back yard—this gizmo frees you from stinky insecticides and all those ankle bites. Shop now, while the price is too good to miss.
