Light Bulb Bug Zapper Review
This device attempts to combine two products (bug zapper and light bulb) into a single unit. It features a bright LED which attracts flying bugs, and then zaps them with an electric current when they get too close. It is the same concept as a traditional bug zapper, but with a more compact design. Unlike a standard zapper, this product doesn’t require an extension cord, as it can be plugged into any light socket.
Keep in mind that Light Bulb Bug Zapper will only work on flying bugs, so roaches, ants, and spiders may need to be dealt with in other ways. It is an excellent choice for flying pests such as months and flies. Once a bug is zapped, there may be a smell which emanates from the bulb, which is also the case with standard zappers.
Although the advertising hypes this product’s ability to kill mosquitoes, there have been studies which indicate bug zappers may actually increase the number of mosquito bites by those who use them. A study from Notre Dame found that bug zappers attract mosquitoes but rarely kill them, leading to more bites, not less.
Overall, we think the design of Light Bulb Bug Zapper will prove to win over consumers, and we estimate the eventual star rating among customers will fall in the 3.5 to 3.7 star range. As a light bulb, it is quite expensive, and for the same price you can get a full-fledged bug zapper. On its own merits, however, we think Light Bulb Bug Zapper will perform well enough to garner mostly positive reviews.
There are a number of light bulb bug zappers available online for about $20 each. For a more traditional bug zapper, you may want to take a look at the Flowtron BK-15D, which has over 6,000 consumer ratings on Amazon, and is currently listed the #1 Best Seller in its class.
