Shoppers can purchase indoor bug zappers at home goods retailers, such as Home Depot, Lowe's and Bed, Bath and Beyond. They may also be purchased at online retailers, such as Amazon.
Bug zappers attract insects with ultraviolet light, causing them to fly close enough to get zapped with a small ping of electricity. Bug zappers are relatively inconspicuous and are safer to use around children and pets than chemical bug zappers. Some models resemble lanterns or heaters, while some come in handheld form. Most bug zappers are plugged into a wall outlet, though some types are battery operated and rechargeable for portability and convenience.
