May 2015: Updated with video!
Summer is finally here, and after wet and cold autumn we are now deluged by record numbers of biting Midges! All of my family have been bitten by midges – and enough was enough. It was time to level the playing field, bring a call to arms, retalliate to in invasion of our homes and bodies by these pesky flying biting machines.
Having purchased Midge Zappers in the past … which all failed to catch or zap any flies, we were concerned another purchase would fail. Thankfully as you will learn when you read this review … it works really well!
This time we avoided the cheap ten quid cylindrical tower zapper, and those ‘zappers in a plug’ and decided to provide an response to the problem that would solve the issue.
We quickly narrowed our search down to the VERMATIK range of products as all had positive reviews and settled on the VERMATIK 30 Watts Aluminium Electric Fly Killer/Bug Zapper.
On arrival we were impressed by how lightweight the Fly Zapper was, if you decide to hang it from the supplied chain the fixing would be straightforward to install.
And here’s a photo of collected and zapped bugs after just TWO DAYS! (Click for bigger)
We’ve had this zapper for a while, and a big bluebottle fly decided to put on a pyrotechnic show for us, click the ‘Play’ icon below to watch.
If you want to buy a Fly Killer that actually works then the VERMATIK Electric Fly Killer fits the bill.
