I know it sounds crazy to think about bug zappers in january but they came to mind the other day. The weather in south arkansas is really crazy. Its warm one day and freezing the next. The temperature reached a scorching 60 degrees and i sat on the back porch soaking up the warmth and low and behold a mosquito feasted on my arm. I was amazed to see a mosquito out when just 2 days before the low temperatures were in the teen digits. The first thing that came to mind was that if they are out now I can only imagine how bad its going to be when springtime gets here. So with that in mind I thought why not do a little research and find the top 5 solar bug zappers and put some zap in springtime.
Number 1 on the list is Sandalwood NK 63 Bug zapper and garden light
. This bug zapper is solar powered and has a 900 volt electric field. Thats pretty powerful of course it also zaps other flying insects besides mosquitos such as biting flys and anything else that likes to feast on you. This bug zapper also comes with a 5 volt electric charger for those days when the sun refuses to shine. It is recommended to fully charge the unit before its first use then let the sun take over. This unit is completely portable so its perfect for all outdoor activities such as camping.It has a rang of up to 3000 sq feet. It is priced at 52.44 at amazon. Not bad for a springtime investment.
Number 2 on the list is the westinghouse electronic UV LED bug zapper
This bug zapper made by westinghouse is also pretty powerful. It has 300 volt electric charge that zaps insects. It has 6 purple UV lights to attract insects and has an auto on off switch built in which means it comes on at dusk and goes off at dawn automatically. Also great for those overnite camping trips. The price on this unit is 52.02 at amazon. Also a good investment for spring and summer..
Number 3 on the list is the GutReise bug zapper which also doubles as a garden or yard light. Also solar powered it has a switch to change the modes between bug zapper or garden yard light.

Number 4 on the list is the APGtech indoor outdoor solar bug zapper

This unit has one other advantage and that is it has a bigger base so you can set it down on a flat surface so it would be perfect for a night time fishing trip. Just set it down in the boat and fish without mosquito interuptions.This unit sells for 20.99 at amazon.
Number 5 on the list is the Luckstar Solar Mosquito Zapper This unit is also waterproof. What makes it unique is it is also commercial grade. It is made like a yard stake but it covers 1 and a half acres. This unit is even used around hospital entrances and areas that require a little more coverage than others. It is not a portable unit but sometimes you want a unit that you can install and forget it This unit sells for 36.99 at amazon.
This rounds out my top 5 mosquito zappers. On a final note mosquitos are really dangerous insects. They carry many different diseases. I have a friend that lives in kansas that contracted the west niles virus from a mosquito. It was very dangerous for he almost died from the disease. His brain swelled and he didnt recognize any of his family members. Lets wage war on mosquitos this year. There are a few ways to help cut down mosquitos such as – get rid of any standing water that may be on your property. Mosquitos lay eggs in standing water. Junk tires that have water in them is a good example. Even check animal water bowls frequently and change the water out every few days. Be safe and try to have a great spring and summer. Lets get those pesky mosquitos before they get us! Thanks for reading Mike Cox. If you have a comment or question please use the reply section below. Thanks
