    Got this mainly for mosquitos. It fries them like Colonel Sanders fries chicken. Larger insects it doesn't always kill, but knocks them down so they can be squashed. Appears to be relatively well made. Much better price than Amazon.

    I bought this to use on those pesky flies that always seem to show up every time you want to sit outside. Not only does it work well but it's lots of fun too. Everyone wants to use it! We've been using it all evening and the batteries are still going strong. You'll want more than one so you don't have to share!

    How long will a charge hold after holding the red button in and then letting it go? Who makes this product? The ZapMaster address is for an individual. Any toll free number or email address for this company?

    • A. The charge is continuous until you lift your finger off the button. I've only had mine a couple of weeks so I'm not sure how long the batteries last but I know someone who said they used theirs all last summer. I ordered mine on Walmart's website and picked it up at my local store the same day. When I got to the store I saw that they were displayed in the store and decided to buy another one for a friend who uses their backyard a lot.

    • A. You must hold the button down the entire time you want the mesh hot. It turns off when you release the button. It's a safety feature.

    • A. No. When it works properly, it's only charged when you hold in the button on the side. Having it perpetually charged would be a safety hazard. Having said that, you are supposed to remove the batteries when you put it in storage.

    • A. Yes but rather then get shocked you can catch a piece of lint or something with it and it will still snap.

    • A. If my handheld fly zapper's red light doesn't stay on then I twist the handle a little and it helps the connection work again. Instead of testing with your finger, since that can hurt if a charge in the capacitor has built up, you might test it by dragging it gently across jeans or other fire resistant clothing that may have loose threads. You should see a large spark bigger than if you rubbed your feet on carpet and touched someone. Fresh batteries make a difference. I would like one that uses 4 batteries instead for either more voltage or more duration.

    • A. Ours has a mesh over top of the grid to prevent accidental touching of the electric grid. We have not tried to touch it. You might not be grounded. If you're wearing tennis shoes, or standing on a rubber mat, you could be protected from shock.

    • A. Yes...the shock might be slight to "what the heck?!!!", depending on how good of a contact you make with the screen, how wet your fingers or contact points are...and how well you are grounded (with shoes, or barefoot). The best way to know if it is working is to zap a bug...see if you get a spark or sizzle and the bug is killed or stunned.

    • A. There is a noticable arc when it discharges. It's easy to test on a plant. A quick poke of the finger, even after letting the switch go, will draw an obvious arc, and doesn't jolt me, but my son said it does. A "touch" on the screen doesn't draw an arc, you would have to flex the screen so it touches the electrode, or short across there like a bug or plant leaf.

    • A. I honestly haven't tried that, but you should see a red light above the battery compartment, so when you depress and hold the button, the area above the battery has a little red light that you should see, if you have no red light, then its not working.

    • A. I would not try it. When you go to swing at the bug you should hear a zap when you have made contact.

    • A. I can actually hear mine charge when I press the button. You should NOT feel a shock or tingle unless it is defective. You'll know when you get your first victim! It lights 'em up with a clear ZAP!

    My question was not answered. Does this bug zapper hold a charge? What kind of answer is yes and no? I want to know if it is still charged after you stop holding the button down and if it is, for how long?

    • A. No. It does not hold a charge. Once the button is disengaged, the charge quickly dissipates.

I tested against a plant three or four minutes later, and it did snap, although it seemed weak.

    • A. Mine was bought over a year ago and still has the same batteries. It only works when you press the button and hold as you are swatting not press the button let go and swat the bug. It holds the current only as long as you hold the button down.

    • A. It only holds a charge while you're holding the button down. Wal-Mart doesn't actually answer these directly... But, I've had mine for a while, so I can only share my own experience, strength, & hope. Well I hope this helps! Have a fabulous Day! Oh! I almost forgot! Duct tape fixes all my problems. When I get a kitchen full of flies from leaving the patio doors open... I wrap duct tape around the handle holding the button down so I can get my murderous ninja on, zapping all that moves! Bwaaaaahhh ha ha ha haaaa! Pazwaat! Bzzzt! Zzzatatat! Tzzaaatatat! Yeeeahh.

    • A. The voltage is stored in a capacitor. The capacitor slowly looses its charge once the button has been released. So, it does hold a charge for a short time after you release the button. But, these things wont seriously hurt anything that weighs more than 1 gram. But, it does hurt if you touch it while charged! Doh!
