PROS

The model doesn't require batteries. The salt container is surprisingly spacious, so you won't have to refill it all that often. On top of that, it has a nice viewing window that will tell you when it's time to reload the gun.

CONS

Kills bugs only from a close range.

OUR VERDICT

Bug-A-Salt 2.0 offers a surefire way to turn a disgusting task into an exciting and fun challenge. Plus, it is just as effective against mosquitoes, aphids, stinkbugs, roaches, cabbage worms, and other insects as it is against flies.

PROS

The single-layer 1.2mm steel grill is a lot tougher than the usual deal. The racket is comprised of high-quality ABS plastic. Adding up to 20 inches in length, this outdoor fly killer gives you a bigger reach, so you're able to kill flies from a slightly larger distance.

CONS

The racket is a little heavy. 

OUR VERDICT

This is a great, durable fly killer racket. With it, you'll be able to execute flies in one swing. It is just as effective and practical at home and in an office as it is outdoors in a garden, backyard, or anything in-between.

PROS

The glue board is really easy to replace. Where an inferior grid might not completely neutralize the threat, a bug caught in the sticky glue won't be able to escape. Plus, a single pad usually lasts for about a month, so it's not like you'll have to replace them all that often.

CONS

The bug container is relatively small. 

OUR VERDICT

Katchy mosquito killer is a little different compared to every other device in this review. But "different" isn't a bad thing here. In some ways, it is actually a much more practical and effective product. Though not without its flaws, the model deserves a spot on our list.

PROS

Though this item is quite large, it's well-balanced, so we bet you won't experience unbearable hand fatigue even if you swing it above your BBQ all night long.

CONS

The loud buzz sound it makes is a bit annoying.

OUR VERDICT

The Elucto BZ-103E battery-operated mosquito zapper is a good thing to stop those pesky bugs from bothering you again. It's quite powerful, well-balanced, comfortable in hands, and large enough to provide a long reach.

Armed with a 4000-volt electrified zinc steel grill, the model lets you instantly neutralize virtually any threat. Using a rechargeable battery, it allows you not to waste your time and money on replacement batteries. Plus, it comes equipped with an LED light that will help you fight pests at night.

CONS

The zapping section is relatively limited. 

OUR VERDICT

ZAP IT! doesn't leave pests a chance. It kills even the largest insects with a single swing. What's more, equipped with an indicator light and a triple-layer safety mesh, this powerful pest control tool is as deadly to flies and other pests as it is safe to people.

Bug-A-Salt 2.0

Lock and Load

Swatting a fly can be satisfying. Not as satisfying as shooting it with a gun though. There aren't a whole lot of activities as satisfying as shooting stuff. Well, with Bug-A-Salt 2.0, you're about to combine that satisfying feeling with the necessary bug demolition.

Compared to its predecessor, the 2.0 iteration of the salt blaster is a tad more load, a touch more power, and a lot more fun.

Sure, the product has its flaws. With it, you'll only be able to kill flies from a close range. Then again, that is the case with any other fly killer.

Unlike those killers, however, this salt shooter doesn't require batteries. Just load it with regular table salt and you're good to go, locked and loaded, ready to show those annoying pesky bugs who's the boss. Plus, the salt container is surprisingly spacious, so you won't have to refill it all that often. On top of that, it has a nice viewing window that will tell you when it's time to reload the gun.

To put it in a nutshell, there are 2 differences between this salt gun and practically every other fly-killing device on the market - the fun part and the versatility part. Again, the fun part is obvious - it is a lot more enjoyable and exciting to shoot bugs than it is to swat them. And thanks to its working principle, the model will help you eradicate not just flies but also mosquitoes, aphids, cabbage worms, roaches, stinkbugs, and tons of other disgusting insects.

Sourcing4U Limited The Executioner

Time of Execution is Now

Sourcing4U Limited, the company behind The Executioner, claim that this is a branded executioner and not a cheap toy and we're definitely inclined to agree with them on that one. Now, there are a few reasons why that's the case.

First, cheap toys don't feature an electrified zinc steel grill with a 3000-volt current running through it. Plus, the said single-layer 1.2mm steel grill is a lot tougher than the usual deal.

Cheap toys, more often than not, are made of subpar recycled plastic, while the model in question is comprised of its high-quality ABS counterpart. This way, the product is built to last and will allow you to execute bugs for years to come.

There's also the size of the whole thing that plays a pretty important role here. Adding up to 20 inches in length, this outdoor fly killer gives you a bigger reach, so you're able to kill flies from a slightly longer distance.

That being said, the size is also the downfall of this product. Well, downfall is, of course, a serious exaggeration but it does make the racket a little heavy, probably the only problem we have with it. Other than that, this is a great instant swatter. With it, you'll be able to execute flies in one swing. It is just as effective and practical at home and in an office as it is outdoors in a garden, backyard, or anything in-between.

KATCHY Indoor Insect Trap

Gotta Catch Them All

With a name like KATCHY, you have to deliver a product capable of catching insects and, in that regard, this mosquito killer does not disappoint. Though it doesn't incorporate an electrified grid that fries these annoying pests, the model does include an ultraviolet light that does a solid job attracting and luring mosquitoes, flies, and moths. After that, a powerful fan and a sticky glue board come into play.

Sure, a glue board like that has its flaws. It doesn't look quite as sophisticated as an electrified grid. Plus, it loses its adhesive properties after some time.

That being said, it is also really easy to replace. Where an inferior grid might not completely neutralize the threat, a bug caught in the sticky glue won't be able to escape. Plus, a single pad usually lasts for about a month, so it's not like you'll have to replace them all that often.

The model's coverage area isn't too shabby either, capable of keeping up to 320 square feet mosquito-free. You can power it via USB or AC.

As far as functionality goes, the most interesting part is the mode choices. You can go with Super Mode to effectively execute every insect in the nearby vicinity or stick with the Silent Mode and be able to sleep at night without mosquitoes and noises coming from the device.

In other words, KATCHY mosquito killer is a little different compared to every other device in this review. But "different" isn't a bad thing here. In some ways, it is actually a much more practical and effective product. Though not without its flaws, the model deserves a spot on our list.

Elucto BZ-103E

Ergonomic Design

The ELUCTO Large Electric Bug zapper is another strong performer on our list. With 3,500-Volt current, it generates electrical shock waves that destroy bugs and other insects in a second with just one swat.

The racket has a very comfortable and practical design to help you neutralize insects in a smooth move. It's made of durable ABS plastic and feels nice in hands. It's well-balanced, so we bet you won't experience unbearable hand fatigue even if you swing it above your BBQ all night long. 

This particular model has an average 18.7-inch length and 8 x 6.5-inch zapping section. And if that seems too much for you, you can opt for a smaller model from the same manufacturer.

Both items rely on standard AA batteries and, as a good bonus, come with a pair of DURACELL batteries already included in the package. Hence, all you need to do is take the racket out of the box, install the batteries and happily zap annoying critters left and right.

So, getting all the good points out of the way, here's the bad. The one real issue we had with this zapper is an annoying sound it makes. Of course, it isn't as annoying as flies' or blood-suckers' buzzing noise, but it's an area for improvement.

In all, this mosquito zapper is a good thing to stop those pesky bugs from bothering you again. It's quite powerful, comfortable in hands, and large enough to provide a long reach.

ZAP IT! Mini

A Safe but Deadly Weapon

ZAP IT! couldn't have been named more appropriately. Any of the rackets in this review will allow you to kill flies. But they really can't hold a candle to ZAP IT! when it comes to the speed with which it executes these annoying buzzing creatures.

See, your average bug zapper racket usually runs a 3000-volt current. This model, on the other hand, turns it up to eleven, with a 4000-volt electrified zinc steel grill. A current like that will allow you to instantly neutralize virtually any pest, from flies and mosquitoes to aphids, thrips, and stinkbugs.

Frankly, the only reason this product doesn't stand at the top of our list is its overall size. The length of 16.1 inches is more than enough but a zapping section that adds up to approximately 6.5 x 6 inches makes it a tad more difficult to kill bugs compared to larger rackets. Other than that, this fly killer is as good as flawless.

Instead of using a couple of alkaline batteries like its peers, the model incorporates a rechargeable battery, so you won't have to waste your time and money on replacement batteries. Furthermore, this fly-killing device comes equipped with an LED light, making it the best fly killer here for nighttime use.

To sum it all up, ZAP IT! doesn't leave pests a chance. It kills even the largest insects with a single swing. What's more, equipped with an indicator light and a triple-layer safety mesh, this powerful pest control tool is as deadly to flies and other pests as it is safe to people.

What Is a Fly Killer?

There's nothing like a nice afternoon rest under the sun, just sitting or lying in your backyard on a comfortable Adirondack or zero-gravity chair. There's also nothing that can ruin that afternoon leisure time like a bunch of flies buzzing around.

Well, you know what, flies? Your days are numbered. Your reign is over. We're about to send you to meet your maker. With these fly killers, it will hardly prove a challenge.

Though a little bit of an umbrella term, anything that can help you solve the fly issue can be classified as a fly killer. In this review, we're mostly focusing on fly swatters/bug zappers in a form of a convenient and handy racket. These rackets incorporate an electrified zinc steel grill with enough voltage to instantly fry the flies and deliver them a quick, merciful death. With a proper fly-killing device, you'll be able to quickly and efficiently kill any fly (or similar bug, for that matter) in close vicinity.

That said, they all have their little features and there's quite a bit of difference between these models, so make sure to read our reviews and take your pick.
