Bug Zapper

I think the best RV gadgets are ones that not only do essential work but are also fun to use. I certainly do enjoy my hand-held bug zapper!

Looking like a small tennis racket, it has an electrostatic charged grid and is advertised as a mosquito deterrent. I’ve had one in the RV for many years, and I use it a lot. It zaps small bugs with a delightful pop and flash and almost always generates a giggle. Yes, I suppose I’m easily entertained, but don’t knock it until you try it!

Aside from reducing the local mosquito population, it is extremely effective on those clouds of gnats and no-see-ums that gather around your inside lights at night. A couple passes with the racket will cremate them, and all that’s left is a fine ash. It also works on wasps, flies and creepy-crawlies. While it vaporizes smaller insects, it stuns big ones so you can step on them. In fact, I keep several around the home base to deal with those vicious East Texas red wasps.

You can get them cheap at Harbor Freight, and dozens of places online, but some are better than others. Try to find one with a single layer of parallel wires across the racket.
