A few weeks, I was asked to try out and review the Electronic Bug Zapper from Ohuhu. The zapper is designed to be used indoors and uses two 10 watt UV bulbs. It covers up to 320 square feet and makes no zap sound.
The zapper itself is made with thin metal and plastic. You can replace the bubs by first discharging it with a screwdriver, then pulling down the screen. It also has a plastic tray to catch bugs that slides in and out. It comes with a chain that you can use to hang it.
It’s a nice looking bug zapper, but there are a few issues. First of all, I placed it in a variety of places around the house & even outside under our covered porch. It zapped a grand total of 4 bugs. It attracted swarms of mosquitoes & little gnats, but they just kept flying in and out of it. At one point, there was a fly going in and out of it. It would get zapped and land in the tray, but then after a few seconds it would fly off again.
The other issue I found is that it gets really hot, almost to the point that you can’t touch it. My main concern with this is that the brads that the chain connects to will pull out of the metal if it gets too hot while hanging. I ended up setting on flat surfaces just to be on the safe side.
Overall, I’m totally on the fence about this. It didn’t seem to work all that well & I’m concerned about the overheating. It think it would work best in a garage, but only on for short periods. If you are interested in checking it out, it available on Amazon.
