Spring starts tomorrow — and that means summer barbecues are close behind. And with every barbecue we get the inevitable swarm of bugs. No one likes a pesky fly or gnat wreaking havoc while on a picnic, grilling or enjoying an evening baseball game. And of course, using an old school swatter won't do. You need something much stronger and reliable to combat insects once and for all. Allow us to introduce you to the ZAP iT! Bug Zapper, a modern take on the popular swatter that instantly eliminates pests. And just for today, you can get it for just $21 (down from $23) at Amazon with the coupon code 1037E791.

The ZAP iT! features an impressive 4,000-volt grid, allowing you to wipe out mosquitos, flies, fruit flies, gnats and other pests in one swing. It's more reliable and faster than any fly trap we've used!

This works in both an indoor and outdoor setting and even has a built-in LED light for night use. One charge yields up to 10,000 zaps, but in case you need to power up, it's as easy as plugging in the zapper with the included USB cable. For maximum safety while the racket is electrified, there's a a triple-layer mesh to keep tiny fingers or paws safe.

"There are few things in life more satisfying than the loud cracking noise produced when this racket hits that mosquito that’s been buzzing around your head," wrote one satisfied customer. "No more guessing about whether or not you got the bug — you WILL hear it when this zapper racket vaporizes those little flying demons. There’s even a handy blue flash showing exactly where the bug was when you hit it. Excellent entertainment at night. 10/10 would (and will!) kill bugs with it again."

Another reports: "We bought these to replace a less sturdy set from last year. We get overrun with jarrow spiders so wanted to be prepared. It turns out these are great for other smaller insects. They have become my husband's favorite toy to eliminate gnats that sneak in at night. I love that I can recharge them through USB instead of going through more batteries. They have been in use for a couple weeks now and are still on the first charge."

"These are the BEST bug zappers we have ever owned," raved a third shopper. "They are also rechargeable which was a surprise. We live in South Florida so there is no shortage of bugs and these things really zap them without a problem. Very satisfying to hear the many zaps!"
