I'm DEATHLY afraid of Miller Moths! I know they don't bite or spread disease, but they're annoying and they chase you! I go crazy trying to kill them with brooms, shoes, clothes, bug spray, soapy water...and it becomes quite a show to my dogs!
I read about how to get rid of these critters and someone suggested a hand held bug zapper. I went immediately after work and bought two pink zappers (~$6.75/each), one for upstairs and one for downstairs.
I got them home and sat there on watch for five minutes when just like clockwork, two moths launched out of nowhere! Reviewers are right when they say don't try to use it like a tennis racket. Wait until the moth or bug has landed, press the button so the light comes on, then (first get up the courage to go near it first and) touch the zapper to the moth and watch sparks fly! You will literally see sparks, just like an outdoor bug zapper. If you keep pressing the button after you've touched the moth, it will stick to the racket and keep shocking it until you depress the button to let it go...which is awesome so you never have to touch it!
It really only stuns the moth (and probably other larger critters) into submission for a few minutes so you can sweep it outside, stomp it or spray it dead with bug spray for "flying" critters...The bug spray for ants/spiders/crawling bugs DO NOT WORK ON MOTHS!
I highly suggest this product, it's been a life saver for my nerves. And you can't beat the price!!!
