Bug Bat helps zap pests

by

bugbat.jpgWith summer rolling around pretty soon, it is just about right for pesky bugs to start making their annoying appearance as well, especially at night. While spraying some sort of insect repellent is a pretty neat idea, why not take the fight to them instead of remaining a pacifist? After all, didn’t the old proverb use to go, “He who runs away, lives to fight another day”? The Bug Bag aims to ensure that no insects will be able to run away and do the horizontal tango with another of its own species in an effort to procreate. It accomplishes its task by simply frying them with a powerful electric shock. Now I am sure that there will be some curious folks around who will want to feel just how much of a pain it is, let me just ay that there is more than enough juice to send a sharp sting down your finger when you touch it while turned on. Future Jackass directors, take note!

Each time a bug carelessly flies or touches the “strings” of the Bug Bat, it will most definitely go straight to insect heaven as your ears pick up the electric crackle of death. Retailing for less than $20 a pop (they go for much cheaper in third world countries), these gizmos are pretty useful if you plan to spend an evening out on the patio with a loved one, especially in light summer clothing which don’t do much good against mosquitoes. I also find this to come in pretty handy in the kitchen, as it will definitely make short work of the common (but annoying) house fly as they congregate around your newest culinary creation while calling all and sundry to check it out..

Any of you plan to pick up this nasty Bug Bat? It would make a pretty cute Mother’s Day present if mom spends plenty of time in the kitchen, with the occasional complaint about insects making their way there.

This “bat” (actually called a racquet-it has strings) is a brilliant way of getting rid of bugs. I baught one a few years ago from a company in South Africa (www.bugzapper.co.za) and it works great.
