There are many types of outdoor bug zappers on the market today. These include solar-powered, battery operated, and gas operated zappers. Solar-powered zappers can be used in harsh weather because they are powered by the sun. These devices will have to be stored away when the sun is not shining though.
Battery-operated outdoor bug zappers will be the best choice for those who want to use an effective yet inexpensive way of dealing with flying insects that invade their outdoor space. However, this type of device will not work well in all weather conditions. It is best to store them away during harsh weather when these insects are not active.
Gas operated devices will be the best outdoor bug zappers if you want to use the device during hot summer months but you do not have a problem with using it during winter. These devices will need to be stored away during the cold seasons. The reason why these kinds of zappers are better is that they don’t emit harmful CO2 fumes into the air like the solar energy device. When using the solar energy bug zapper, you will be releasing ozone into the air. This makes some people sick and may also damage some plants in your garden or yard.

If you plan on using this type of zapper you will need to take special precautions to ensure that no UV rays from the sun to get through.
You can also find patio table insect zappers that use ultraviolet bulbs instead of heat. These are used for situations where there are not going to be a lot of insects. You simply put them out in the evening and then in the morning you can walk by and they will already be glowing. They emit UVA so the flying insects cannot pass through them. These patio table bug zappers are very popular especially in areas where there are a lot of flying insects during the summertime.
You can also find bug zappers that come in the form of black flag. These are made of a heavy duty wire that is coated with a black flag material that easily repels flying insects. They can be found readily available at any hardware store. The black flag material can be removed and reused several times until it is completely black. These insect control products are very effective at repelling flying insects because black flag is a lot thicker than other materials.

It is great if you have a one acre lot because with these bug zappers you can be sure that all of the bugs are gone in an hour or two.
