Zap bugs with the incredible power of the sun

Solar powered bug zapper
Use this solar powered bug zapper to keep your outdoor areas a little bit more bug-free!

What a great idea! Most bugs are out at night, yet the sun is out during the day, so why not capture the sun’s energy during the day and use it to kill the bugs at night? That’s exactly what this solar powered bug zapper does.

Housed in a compact attractive casing, the zapper has a solar cell on top which converts the sun’s energy into electricity which charges some internal batteries. Then, come evening, the batteries are used to power an electronic grid, much like the ones in the full-sized bug zappers which require a household electricity connection. Since it’s battery powered and self-contained, the solar power insect zapper can be taken with you and used wherever you need it.

The Solar Powered Bug Zapper is £13, which is great for our Brit friends, but I have not found a US supplier of these. If you know of one, please link it in the comments below.



  1. Something similar was being sold in the U.S. but is currently not available through the usual distributors. I’ll let you know if I find any again.
