Here are the best products and the smartest advice we’ve found on keeping bugs out of your life.
We refreshed this guide by beefing up the mosquitoes section with more research, adding two more suggestions for keeping mosquitoes at bay (oscillating fan and yellow bug light), and reporting back on our (failed) attempts to grow carnivorous plants.
We finished some mosquito repelling/killing research for our anti-bug piece.

The Executioner is the weapon of choice for actively hunting down insects that fly or are too large to squish without making a mess.
It’s more effective and less messy than a fly swatter and will let you take out bugs in a variety of circumstances. This tennis-racket-shaped device electrocutes flying insects, killing or stunning them so you can clean them up without making a mess.
Though made of plastic, it’s sturdily built, especially when compared with the Amazing Handheld Bug Zapper, and runs on included AA batteries.
Of the tennis-racket-shaped bug zappers available, this one had favorable reviews—4.1 stars (out of five) across 1,739 reviews on Amazon—and no indication that it’s prone to falling apart while being swung around the home.
While I was researching this piece, an avid gardener from Tennessee told me that some gardeners use electric swatters like the Executioner to scrape and shake smaller bugs off of plants onto the electric grid, which allows you to kill harmful pests infesting your plants without using pesticides. Wirecutter founder Brian Lam has used one in Hawaii with great success to stun half a dozen large roaches and another half dozen flies and mosquitoes (and beetles) before flushing them down the drain.
The greatest benefit is that you’re catching roaches without having to squash them (roach guts smell and can potentially stain fabrics).During testing, I pressed the button and touched the grid to see how powerful the Executioner’s voltage was.And although it makes a satisfying pop and gives you a spicy jolt, it won’t leave you tased on the ground either: Its shock is more powerful than licking a battery, less powerful than a loose lamp wire.This one is more expensive than most but it's very well made . It's a well received gift you can make better by including batteries . Shorts out internally in the humid Florida weather Looks like high quality but isn't. Looks good as its packaged for the American market, but still shorts out internally.You might as well buy three of the throw away ones for the price of this one.I had hoped that the plastic case would have helped, but it doesn't. BEST MOSQUITO KILLER THIS IS A VERY FINE MOSQUITO KILLING MACHINE... I WISH THEY WOULD MAKE THEM WITH RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES....
