Promising review: “If you’re seriously grossed out and terrified by bugs, here at last is the secret weapon you NEED. You cock it, hold the business end near the bug, and push the red button. Voila, the bug is sucked into a plastic chamber in a microsecond, out of your life for all practical purposes. The bug isn’t even injured, just confined, so if you’re feeling tenderhearted, you can take it outdoors and release it. The bug cannot escape, even if you use the BugZooka again immediately. The second bug and subsequent bugs just join the first one, safe and secure. The BugZooka is about two feet long, so you don’t even have to get close to your insect victim.
I discovered this device the same year I saw my first stinkbug (in my house, egad). Not only are stinkbugs the nastiest, creepiest creatures ever, but they also supposedly give off a horrid smell if you smush them. What to do? Happily, the BugZooka doesn’t smush them or activate their stink. I can say honestly that my quality of life has improved since I’ve had a BugZooka because I no longer feel distress (or panic!) when I see a wasp or stinkbug. It even works on flies if you’re fast on the trigger. What a great product!” —Calli
