Picture it: You and your friends are on a patio, sipping your favorite cocktails, and enjoying the summer breeze. The next day, you wake up to red, itchy bumps on your arms and legs — a clear sign that you’ve been attacked by the silent, yet painful, bites of unrelenting mosquitos. Yep, it’s an all-too-familiar scenario and perhaps one of the few downsides to summer. It might seem like no matter how many citronella candles and bug sprays you use, those pesky mosquitos always find a way through it all. For a more physical approach, there is one Amazon product that promises to ward off those bug bites for good: The Lanpuly Electric Bug Zapper.

This product is essentially an electric fly swatter that’s particularly effective at getting mosquitos out of the way quickly and efficiently. You can wave it around to zap any pests that are flying in your vicinity. Once you hear that oh-so-satisfying “zap” sound, you’ll know that an insect has been caught. Unlike regular fly swatters, the Lanpuly Electric Zapper ensures that you won’t have to dispose of the bug’s remains. Just zap it away and poof! It’s gone in a flash. The 4000V high voltage is more than enough electricity to stop mosquitos in their tracks, yet this racket also safe for humans to touch with their hands, thanks to the racket’s three-layer grid design.

One Amazon shopper who encountered a mosquito infestation in their apartment said this bug zapper was their saving grace. “Within 1-2 days of using my electric bug zapper racquet, I had taken care of 90% of my mosquito infestation in my house,” the reviewer wrote. “It’s simple really. If I see the mosquito and I can reach it with my bug zapper, the pest dies.”

Reviewers also rave about the fact that this zapper is USB rechargeable, and impressively, it holds a charge for quite a while before having to be plugged back in. “It’s rechargeable so I don’t have to worry about buying batteries for it all the time,” said one reviewer who gave it a five-star rating. “I charged it fully like the directions said to before I ever used it and I haven’t had to charge it again yet. I’ve been using it some every day since I got it.” The zapper also comes with a stand that allows it to be propped up next to a bedside table, coffee table, or desk. That way, when you’re at your desk working or lounging on your balcony, you can rest easy knowing that your zapper is on standby, ready to catch pests as they’re on the prowl. Hallelujah!

This zapper is not only a great investment for keeping your summer hangouts mosquito-free, but it’s also one of the early Amazon Prime Day deals you can snag right now. Prime members who spend $10 on products from select small businesses today will be rewarded with a $10 credit to spend during Prime Day (June 21-22). I don’t know about you, but when it comes to shopping, I think every dollar earned is a win!
