Should you an Electric Fly Zapper?

When you have a machine that gets rid of those annoying flying insects, sometimes it’s hard to see any disadvantages of using one. Before you go searching for the best electric fly zapper for your home or business, there are some disadvantages you should be made aware of.

Firstly, although yes it does eliminate flying insects, there’s still a risk of a spread of diseases such as salmonella and e.coli. When the fly gets electrocuted, part of the insect such as one of its legs can come off, which can land anywhere including on food and kitchen tops, rather than in the fly zapper machine.

If you’re a business such as a restaurant or caterer, although you are preventing flies from flying around, it can also damage your reputation. Some people may think you shouldn’t be having flies in your restaurant in the first place especially as flies can cause contamination to food. So if this is the case for you, perhaps placing the electric fly killer in a more discrete place could be a better option!
