Mosquitoes have been a nuisance for us since the dawn of time and due to the development of new technologies, we now have a pretty efficient weapon against the pesky little creatures who disturb our good night’s sleep. Furthermore, those nasty mosquito bites we all resent can also be the cause of a wide variety of diseases and parasites, so when you think about it, a good mosquito killer can actually protect you and your family from a lot worse than just the inconvenience of an itchy bump.
There are quite a few products out there designed deal with mosquitoes in various ways, one deadlier than the other. We’ve put together a list of the best mosquito killers on the market right now, so that you’ll be able to get a good night’s sleep without any buzzing or itching whatsoever.
10Koolatron Lentek Electronic Racket Zapper
Although it looks very much like a tennis racket, this electronic zapper uses a series of electric wires to kill any insect that gets in contact with them. As soon as the Electronic Racket Zapper is turned on, it will draw insects towards it, killing them the moment they touch the device. What’s great about this device is that it is portable and easily maneuverable. It is also powered by 2 AA batteries which make operating it very inexpensive.
9Electric LED Bug Fly Mosquito Zapper Swatter Killer Control with Built-in Rechargeable Batteries
This particular device features an LED bulb that generates a special type of light which most insects find very appealing. Upon touching the metallic mesh in front of the bulb, however, all insects fall dead. This is because the metallic mesh has 110 volts running through it, a voltage supplied by the rechargeable battery it comes equipped with. It also features a three-layer net which continues to trap insects long after the battery runs out.
8Stinger NS16 Nosquito Octenol Replacement Mosquito Lure
Intended for those of you who already own a zapper, the Stinger NS16 mosquito attractant will lure mosquitoes close enough for the zapper to do its job. It doesn’t do much by itself, but when attached to an insect zapper, it will release an odor that mosquitoes and biting flies find very appealing. As a mosquito killer, the Stinger NS16 is one of the most efficient products on the market, yet unknown to many due to it not being a stand-alone device.
7Vex Zappers Electric Bug Zapper Racket and Fly Swatter Mosquito Killer
Designed to be light and low maintenance, Vex Zappers Electric Bug Zapper Racket and Fly Swatter Mosquito Killer is one of the few mosquito killers that are 100% human and pet-friendly, causing no second-hand damage to any creatures other than mosquitoes. Like many similar devices, this also uses an LED bulb to attract mosquitoes and a variety of other harmful insects before shocking them with 3000 volts.
6Flowtron FC-8800 Diplomat Fly Control Device
Suitable for both indoor or outdoor use, the FC-8800 from Flowtron is one of the most efficient mosquitoes / flies killer on the market. It has an action radius of up to 1,200 square feet, killing any mosquito that gets too close to its charged electric mesh. The FC-8800 doesn’t use any dangerous chemicals, does not release any unpleasant odors, and does not leave any residues that can affect the well-being or anything larger than a bug.
5Summit Mosquito Dunks
Sometimes prevention is better than treatment as things would have it, or at least that’s what every person’s mindset should be like when dealing with mosquitoes. You see, mosquitoes often drink the stagnant water they breed into. This happens in pools, ponds, or even puddles near your home, places in which a huge mosquito population can develop if not taken care of. With Summit Mosquito Dunks, you ensure that every mosquito that even touches any body of water in your vicinity will end up dying within minutes.
4Blue Rhino SkeeterVac SV5100 Mosquito Eliminator
Unlike most of the devices we talked about so far, this particular device doesn’t use light and electricity to dispose of mosquitoes. Instead, the Blue Rhino SkeeterVac SV5100 Mosquito Eliminator uses a more chemical approach to kill any mosquitoes that venture to close to it. As some of you may know, mosquitoes are attracted to CO2, which is exactly what this device uses to lure them close to its powerful vacuum that sucks them into a sticky paper.
This EPA registered product comes available in 30-ounce packages, each of which designed to rid you of mosquitoes for weeks at a time. Unlike lures or zappers, Mosquito Bits has to be mixed with the water inside stagnant pools or ponds near your home in order to destroy mosquitoes and mosquito larvae. It contains safe agents that are human and environmentally safe, causing no damage whatsoever to people or small animals who get in contact with it.
2Thermacell Mosquito Repellent Outdoor and Camping Repeller Device
This cordless, pocket-sized, portable and lightweight appliance is very effective when dealing with mosquitoes and a variety of other insects that might inconvenience you. It employs a silent and virtually odor-free method of attracting and subsequently killing any mosquitoes that get into its 225 square feet action radius. Most people prefer to take this particular device with them when going camping due to its relatively small size, but it is just as effective as a stationary, permanent mosquito killer outside your home.
1Flowtron BK-15D Electronic Insect Killer
The BK-15D Electronic Insect Killer from Flowtron is perhaps the most popular insect killer on the market right now and rightfully so. Its advanced electronic insect control allows for multiple insects to be disposed of within a short time span without ever clogging the killing grid. This device provides continuous and uninterrupted service throughout the night, effectively disposing of all mosquitoes within a 500-feet (or more) radius.
