Final thoughts

We suggest using both types of mosquito zapper (lamp trap and racket) in conjunction to help get rid of mosquitoes. An electric racket zapper is worth keeping at home to provide a quick relief in the house and around the yard.

A few things to help in your consideration when picking a right handheld zapper to buy. Opt for zapper with safety mesh feature if you have kids at home, else going for one without the mesh can save some bucks and have more killing kick in each swing. Also decide if you prefer rechargeable version or using batteries (pros and cons to each but we personally prefers inserting AA batteries as we think it last longer).
