6 of the best electric fly killers on Amazon
With lockdown in place I decided to update this article because I was in need of an electric fly killer for my office. The weather’s been nice these last few days and I’ve had the window open. The great news is I’ve moved the fresh air and smell of the garden, the bad news is the constant buzzing and flies all around…
You wouldn’t believe how worked up I get sat in the office or garden conservatory listening to a big bottle fly buzzing around disturbing my peace. Fortunately there are plenty of low energy an safe solutions to get rid of these pests without the need too run around the room squatting them with a roll of paper, or even worse, the sticky red top fly traps with dead flies hanging to it (yuck). Oh and not to mention they don’t smell nice at all. So after owning a good few of these electric fly killers I have come to the conclusion the ASPECTEK Professional Electronic Indoor Insect killer is the best for Summer 2020.
So I have reviewed the best electric fly killers based on safety, ability to keep your space clear, cost, ease of emptying, energy consumption. The best electric fly killers are totally non toxic unlike bait for mice or rat poison, relatively quiet in operation, and designed with child and pet safety in mind. The ideal fly killer has a neat tray that gathers all debris so that you can easily clear any flies and keep things clean.
There’s probably nothing more annoying than flies buzzing around, or landing on or near your food at dinner time or even whilst preparing in the kitchen, perhaps it could be your barbecue they are attacking. Fly killers should work unnoticed in any setting so based on these criteria I have reviewed the best electric fly killers to save you time.
Here is a review of 6 electric fly killers telling us what makes them best sellers on Amazon.
1. ASPECTEK Professional Electronic Indoor Insect killer - 30 Watt version
I wanted to throw in the ASPECTEK Professional Electronic Indoor Insect killer because it is a better comparable to the other 30 Watt fly control measure in this article. For me, this is a great choice because the grid is well designed and safe. I would still keep out of the reach of children though.
It has an easy empty tray which for me is important. I want to be able to rid myself of those dead bugs easily with minimal fuss. The tray simply slots out and is kind of a U-shape so you can funnel the insects straight down the bin without them falling everywhere.
This product is legit. It has the CE stamp so it is EEC approved. It works really well, maybe even too well, it gives off a good 800 volt zap which you clearly hear. It’ll take your pets a little while to adjust to the sudden buzz but between having insects buzzing around in the office or conservatory sends me insane, literally. I don’t want to sound sadistic as I hear the zap but as it goes off I can’t help but feel I’ve gotten rid of another annoyance.
I’d like the power cord to be a little longer, you might want to invest in a power cable extension if you need more than a metre from your plug socket. Apart from that I don’t really have much to say by the way of negative on this item. It’s definitely one of the better quality and value for money units available. I’ve also got the 20 Watt version which is why it’s in the review currently but I can tell you this is far more capable, far less flies get away, and a much cleaner way to dispatch these insect humanely.
You can buy with confidence, turn this thing on for a couple of hours, or whenever uninvited guests arrive and be sure it’ll get the job done cleanly for you.
