Mosquito Zapping Light Bulb gets rid of those pests

mosquito-zapping-light-bulbAh, there is nothing quite like chilling out on your patio or balcony in the cool evening, sipping on a cup of hot tea or coffee with some biscuits in another hand. You close your eyes and let your body sink comfortably into the rattan chair, while the sounds of the nearby forest tickle your eardrums — crickets and the like. Unfortunately, Murphy’s Law kicks in and you pick up a buzzing of the nasty sort. Mosquitoes! Pulling out the insecticide is not a good idea with all the food around, so a far more passive and safer solution in the form of the $29.95 Mosquito Zapping Light Bulb might be a better idea.

This Mosquito Zapping Light Bulb happens to be a LED light bulb which will be able to instantly kill mosquitoes as well as other flying pests. Being different from lesser bulbs that only repel mosquitoes, this model emits unsightly yellow or off-colored light, which renders pests inert with a 3,000-volt electrified cage and relies on 18 LEDs in order to deliver 920 lumens of soft white light with the same output as a 70-watt incandescent bulb. It sports an energy-efficient 40,000-hour lifespan, resulting in years of seasonal use, and can be plugged into any light socket indoors or outdoors so that one can illuminate and protect front porches, patios, and decks simultaneously without having to have a dedicated trap.
