With the start of spring comes the rise of annoying pests. Now, you can rid yourself of the flying variety (we’re looking at you, mosquitoes!) in an eco-friendly way with the Solar Insect Zappers. You may have been hesitant to plug in one of these bug zappers before due to their power consumption, but since this set of four harnesses the sun’s energy, feel free to leave them running all night long. Outfitted with a UV bulb, the Solar Insect Zappers turn on automatically when the sun goes down and gets rid of 100 different types of flying pests. And don’t worry, these bugs won’t feel a thing – they are eliminated instantly thanks to a 300-volt electric charge, so you can enjoy the spring and summer nights without getting bitten. Running 8 hours on a full charge, the Zappers only needs minimal sunlight to power itself, and can turn to accent lighting with the push of a button. Buy them at Hammacher Schlemmer for $99.95.
