ZAP! Crackle. Pop. Snap. I watch with a sinister grin as the pesky little insects and bugs find their way to the bright light. It's a serene and wondrous blue light that lures them in like moths to a flame. They can't resist. Especially the gnats and mosquitoes. But I don't feel bad. Naa, not even one little bit. It's survival of the fittest down here and I'm tired of getting bit up every summer. I could care less if all the insects found their way to the mosquito zappers hanging around my patio. At least then I could relax out back with a beer and a bratwurst in my hand. Ah, can't you just picture it now?
No one likes bugs! And don't start talking about The Grissom character on "CSI." That's a fictional television series that clearly doesn't have anything to do with art imitating life. The guy is strange! Most of us humans here in the real world get annoyed with insects and bugs. The two that bother me are mosquitoes and ticks. Yeah, those are the nasty little buggers that bring viruses and disease. I could care less about fuzzy spiders and fat bumble bees. Now, there is a solution, or at least a type of remedy to my dilemma. It all begins with the new-age mosquito zappers. We've all seen these before. A bug gets enticed, zooms in and ZAP. He's as dead as a doornail. But, have you ever heard of mosquito magnets? This is one of the more recent devices used to warn off mosquitoes. It works against their sensors somehow, telling them to keep away. With a quality mosquito magnet, you can literally keep mosquitoes out of your yard entirely. Now that's what I call AWESOME.
How effective are high-tech insect magnets and mosquito zappers? Well, these devices usually take care of a certain vicinity. Obviously you can't turn on a few mosquito zappers, and expect to go walking around the neighborhood without getting bit. This is where insect repellent reigns supreme. Bust out some DEET and mist it over your limbs and torso. This is the best way to keep those irksome little insects from biting while you're enjoying the summer months. And remember to check out the latest mosquito zappers at your local home store.
