About this deal

The instructions note that the Garbage Guard should not be used “in areas where people will be for an extended period of time,” so don’t put it in your kitchen trash can (but your garage barrels should be fine). We found the Garbage Guard to be extremely effective, even under the most extreme circumstances (and if you really want to know what circumstances we’re talking about, read on—but be warned). But with its elegant look, easy cleaning, and indestructible nature, this is the luxury car of swatters.

The Catchmaster Window Fly Traps, clear sticky traps that adhere to a window, were a previous pick, but after using them long-term, we’re finding issues with getting the adhesive off the window. After testing eight flyswatters (and killing hundreds of flies in the process) and speaking to Caltech’s Michael Dickinson, a professor of bioengineering and aeronautics who has been studying flies’ behavior in flight for more than 15 years, we believe the best option is the Pic Fly Swatter.

Even though not all of us mind an odd spider or bug scurrying across our floors and climbing our walls, none of us want to be removing the insect with our hands. It’s a small capsule that attaches to the underside of the barrel lid and emits a vapor of insecticide.

There were so many dead ones at the bottom of the barrel, it looked like someone had spilled a bag of rice. I guess I do feel a bit guilty but it quickly passes even with the Daddy Long-legger that I envision havin’ his legs all wrapped up around him from the overpowering suction. The flexible nozzle tip and up to 24" reach lets you take care of unwelcome visitors on the ceiling or behind furniture without leaving any marks behind. The Executioner is also effective in the garden, where you can scrape and shake smaller bugs off plants and onto the electric grid.But, he reports, The Executioner isn’t perfect: “I do still use the Zap It for swarms of tiny gnats in our yard, since the outer mesh layer does a better job of grabbing lots of them at once. As Dickinson told us, “If you have an object in your hand, the speed with which you can move the end of it is proportional primarily to the length. I had already purchased one of these and decided I wanted another so that I had one upstairs and one downstairs. Aside from whatever good Karma you gain through such benevolent, non-violent insect control, you also don’t need to clean the bug guts off your freshly painted wall.

You might consider closing your blinds first though, or your neighbors may think you’ve finally gone completely off the deep end as they watch you stalking around windows, gun in hand. We’ve used enough of these in the past to conclude that there is very little difference from brand to brand.We’ve tested and evaluated a number of other fly-related products and found many of them to be effective to varying degrees, but they have enough downsides that we can’t fully recommend them. Coming with an attached LED light, it has never been easier to see and capture bugs under our beds, sofas and in dark crevices of our walls. Plus, if it’s been four months and you suddenly spot a bug, you won’t be stuck with dead batteries, and it comes with a wall-mounting bracket for easy closet storage. To find the best bug-killing gear available, we turned to experienced exterminators and entomologists, and we interviewed a Caltech aeronautics professor who has spent more than 15 years studying the evasive flight behaviors of houseflies.

The catch and release mechanism of this bug vacuum is a safe way to transport bugs from behind your sofa to your garden without them getting harmed. For those times when you don’t want to gear up and hunt for wildlife in the great outdoors, just grab your Fly-Goodbye and starting hunting right inside your home. There’s one bug-killing tool you won’t find here: bug zappers, which work about as well as any other indiscriminate mass slaughter. Once the lid is closed, the toxin builds up enough to kill any flies or maggots trying to make a living in there.

The BugZooka’s telescoping tube gives it an effective range of 2 feet, which should be enough to reach high corners where spiders like to hide out. Considering the results of this particular test, we’re more than confident in the Garbage Guard’s capabilities.
