The device can be placed on desks or any other furniture. As an alternative, you can always use the chain that comes together with the main unit to hang the zapper. Moreover, the protective grid negates the risk of humans being zapped themselves.

CONS

The grid electrocutes the insects with loud zaps.

OUR VERDICT

If you are having trouble with insects in your house, don't call pest control service just yet. With this highly powerful zapper from Aspectek, you will be able to deal with all flying insects in no time.

The insect tray is quite small for regular use.

OUR VERDICT

Although this HEMIUA zapper is great for general indoor use, it truly shines if placed on patios. Owing to its waterproof housing, it can be utilized in any weather with zero risks of malfunction. Likewise, it's 365-nm UV lamp lures most of the common pest insects.

Aspectek Upgraded 20W

Make Your Home Safe from Mosquitoes

This all-upgraded version of the Aspectek bug zapper is a great house appliance that deals with all flying insects out there.

First of all, the unit features two 10W UV lamps, which combined with a 2800V electrified grid leaves absolutely no chance for the insects to survive when they dare to fly close to the unit. Additionally, the zapper has a fairly large insect tray, so you won’t have to empty it too often.

The only real gripe we have with this indoor fly zapper is its short power cord. With only 38 inches in length, it cannot be called convenient and using a power extender is often necessary.

As for the materials, the appliance is made of plastic with aluminum parts and a metal grid. All elements are chemical-free and don’t produce any odor, making the device safe for use in kitchens as well as living rooms and bedrooms.

The reliability of the unit is top-notch and, once it is connected, it will serve you for more than just a couple of seasons. The mounting options included in the kit also allow hanging the zapper using a special hanging chain, which is a neat addition to an already great package.

Without a doubt, this model from Aspectek is a great insect killer and, perhaps, the best indoor bug zapper when it comes to effectiveness.

BLACK + DECKER Electric Indoor/Outdoor

Not As Simple As It Looks

This BLACK + DECKER is fairly effective for indoor use and can cover areas with up to 6,000 square feet in size, which is quite a lot for a single zapper device.

Power-wise, this unit is a corded model that can operate from any 120-volt source given that you have access to standard power sockets. Just like any regular UV-based zapper, the appliance uses two bright UV lamps as a lure for the insects. The frequency spectrum can successfully bait mosquitoes, gnats, wasps, yellow jackets, moths, and various types of beetles among other insects.

Contrary to other similar products, this BLACK + DECKER appliance features a rather elaborate insect grate on the front and the back panels of the housing. To be more precise, it incorporates holes of different diameters that let through both small and big insects closer to the electrified grid and, as a result, they die in-between the grates. Thanks to this, cleaning the actual metal grid, once it is off, is far easier since the insects don’t stick to it too much.

Wrapping things up, if a reliable indoor bug zapper is what you are looking for, then this one will suit the role perfectly. On top of its great performance, it is easy to use and clean and can be utilized at production facilities and in domestic conditions as an insect deterrent.

BugAZappa Indoor/Outdoor Electric

An Essential Plug-In Mosquito Killer

The BugAZappa bug zapper lantern easily kills mosquitoes, gnats, flies, moths, as well as wasps. The small size of only 3.9 x 3.9 x 9.8 inches makes this unit highly portable and, as long as you have access to power outlets, you won’t have any issues with the fly killer. Don’t let the small dimensions of the appliance trick you though; the unit deals with small and big insects quickly and without breaking a sweat.

The working principle of this indoor bug light features a standard combination of a UV bulb that attracts flying pests and an 800-volt electrified grid that does the rest (zaps them until they can no longer fly). Completely chemical-free, it is safe for your family and pets. The safety measures include a reliable ABS plastic cage that negates the risk of accidental electric shock.

The one thing that did bother us though is the length of the power cord, which limits the placement to only 55 inches close to the outlet. Alternatively, if your outlets are placed rather high on the wall, you can hang the unit right from the ceiling using the hanging loop on the top side of the zapper.

All things considered, if you are looking for a compact bug zapper that easily fits small rooms with limited free space, then BugAZappa will be your go-to pick for that role.

Micnaron Pest Killer

Tremendous Power in a Classic Design

This indoor pest killer from Micnaron may look like a regular zapper to most users, and they will be right, but to an extent. So, what makes it stand out then? Let’s take a quick glance over its core features and find an answer to this question.

First off, it is the two powerful UV bulbs that lure in all the annoying flying insects. With an extended spectrum range of the 365-nm wavelength, the appliance can effectively attract mosquitoes, fruit and regular flies, moths, and even bees with wasps. Once they get close, they will certainly meet their untimely death at the edge of the electrified grid that will zap them into submission.

As for the convenience features, the appliance comes equipped with a handy chain that enables hanging the zapper underneath the ceiling or above the insect’s food sources. This enhances the usability of the zapper indoors quite a bit since insects will be more likely to get trapped in the middle of the room rather than closer to the ground.

All in all, the Micnaron pest killer combines the classic bug zapper design and effectiveness in one package and that is what makes it great in the end. So, if you need an insect zapper that simply gets the job done, there is little doubt about it - this pest killer is the right pick.

HEMIUA Outdoor/Indoor Hangable

Small yet Quite Capable

The HEMIUA is yet another lantern-like zapper on our list but, this time around, it is completed in a sleek and, more importantly, waterproof housing that enables using it virtually anywhere given enough power.

Speaking of power, this appliance is corded and will need a 120-volt power source. Although any cord extension will do, we recommend using only the best ones that have appropriate insulation, especially if you want to hang the zapper outdoors on your porch.

Conversely, let’s consider the actual zapping. Equipped with a 4200-volt electrified grid, it is quite effective at doing just that - insect extermination. To aid in that, the zapper also features an attractant trap in the form of a single HEMIUA UV bulb that can lure annoying flying pests with good consistency. The only thing we would like to see improved is making the insect tray bigger since the stock one gets filled surprisingly quickly, which requires cleaning it up quite often.

Summing up, despite the small size, this HEMIUA zapper is an excellent bug zapper for both indoor and outdoor use. Thanks to its well-protected housing, however, it will be best suited for outdoor use close to the entry points that insects may use to get inside your house.

What Is an Indoor Bug Zapper?

A considerable number of insects can easily become a really annoying issue during the summertime, especially when other means of more humane insect denial measures no longer work. Fortunately, the electrocuting devices known as bug zappers can offer real relief to those who suffer from mosquito and fly bites in the comfort of their homes. Do keep in mind that these devices were engineered specifically for indoor use, hence, their effective range can be somewhat limited compared to the more powerful models.

Generally speaking, a regular bug zapper is a combination of a special lamp that illuminates ultraviolet rays that attract the insects and an electrifying element that either stuns or kills the annoying pests when they get too close to the device. Fairly simple yet highly effective, the indoor models tend to work better when the doors and windows are closed. Other products can offer other means of bug eradication such as fan traps that capture the flying bugs and insects that die of dehydration afterwards. So, if you are tired of all kinds of insects getting into your house, this device is one of the best solutions out there. After all, it's either you or them, and we certainly won't blame you for sticking with your own interests here.

That said, if you are searching for more powerful bug killing devices, we recommend taking a look at outdoor bug zappers or ultrasonic pest repellers.
