    Tennis Racket Bug Zapper

    Ok, so they were on sale for $5 and I bought one to replace my badmitton racket I hit Cicada killers with. Well I touched a fly in the house, kazamm, 2 AA batteries this thing works. Then a mosquito. I thought it was gimmick. My wife said I am glad you got a useful toy for fathers day.

    Duct Tape, my return hose sprung a leak, so I duct taped it until I can get a replacement, only been in service 4 months. Will replace tomorrow and then plan out PVC.

    I've got like 5 of them. One of the best inventions I've seen in my lifetime. Intel went all crazy with their microprocessors. I'm just as entertained by a low voltage tennis racket to kill mosquitoes.

    None of mine have run out. But, if you let kids play with them, it occupies them for hours, so in that case I could see needing to replace them weekly. But yeah, none of mine have run out and I got mine last summer.

    The one from Kohl's is a hoot! The one from Harbor Freight does not work near as well.

    Be careful..... they tend to keep a residual charge in the mesh and if you just happen to touch it, like I accidentally did, you'll get a good enough shock to make your arm hurt and tingle for a few hours.

    Really? I'd throw that guy out and get a new one. Never had that issue.
