Let me not waste your time explaining why a mosquito killer is an important thing you should have these days. Almost everyone in India knows clearly the diseases and the lives lost just because of this small insect. No one in this world would ever comment that he/she love a mosquito or their bite. Until the past century no one had really come up with any efficient ideas to reduce the mosquito issue, but today we have the technology and ways to kill the mosquito’s or avoid their bites.
There are more than a dozen things on the market today, which could help you get rid of the mosquitos. However, they come from different brands and with same or different specifications.

4. UV based mosquito-killer
This type of mosquito-killer is an advanced portable version of a mosquito-killer bat. Yes, it is, the only difference is that this device uses UV rays to attract mosquitoes and then these mosquitoes are trapped in between the electrified nets that eventually electrocutes and kills the mosquitoes.
- No human labor required
