Bugzooka Bug Catcher - Bug Vacuum Stick Sucks Up Unwanted Bugs

Updated on December 16, 2015

Bugzooka Sucks Up Ants, Spiders, Stink Bugs and More

"Bugzooka Fly Sucking Stick" - This is one of those ideas that is so simple that you will ask "Why didn't I think of that".

The Bugzooka is a simple and very effective device designed to create a vacuum that sucks nasty bugs in with a simply push of a button. Just one more way to say goodbye to flies, ants, spiders, and stink bugs.

... say goodbye to flies, ants, spiders, and stink bugs.

There is no specific reason for my recent fascination with bug killing devices, other than while putting together my lens on the Bug-A-Salt, (the salt gun fly killer) I found that there were many gadgets designed to get rid of bugs in environmentally and kinda fun ways without having to touch them.

The Bugzooka is a rather simple device that uses the principles of "Boyles Law" to create a back pressure that sucks insects in to a plastic holding tube. Once you have adequately filled the tube you can empty it... but probably not in an inside trash can, unless you're certain all of the insects are no longer moving.

Bugzooka Available Through Amazon.com

Eligible For Free Super Saver Shipping On Combined Orders Of $25.00 Or More.

An ingenious use of Boyles Law - The Bugzooka creates a vacuum that sucks bugs into a specially design plastic chamber. They get in, sucked in that is... but they don't get out until you let them out.

This lovely gadget just proves; If enough people have a problem, someone will come up with a solution. Great for use on high ceilings or under cabinets or tight places. The Bugzooka includes a removable catch tube that allows for disposal or the safe study and release of bugs.

The Bugzooka is easy to use and made of durable high impact plastic components. Find out more and read over 150 reviews at Bugzooka available through Amazon.com

Bugzooka To Get Rid Of Stink Bugs

Researching for this lens I came across several articles about using the Bugzooka to get rid of Stink Bugs. This is probably one of the best uses for this contraption. You can suck in the nasty little stink bugs without having to get to close to them or having to touch them.

While reading about the Stink Bug, I found that some people can have at least a mild allergic reaction to the bugs stench. Symptons can be typical sneezing, coughing, eye watering or it can further develop in some people to include food intolerance and skin rash. If you find you've been visited or infested with stink bugs and begin to have allergic reactions, you may want to consult your doctor.

In the meantime do your best to mitigate the growth of the bug population by either hiring a professional exterminator or giving it a go yourself.

Asian Lady Beetle Infestation

In The Midwest we have a new friend that shows up in the autumn looking for a warm place to spend the winter. It's The Asian Lady Beetle, a relative to our very own Ladybug. When threatened, this want-to-be house guest tends to emit an odor and an oily residue that can stain your clothing or fingers if you try to collect them by hand. The Bugzooka would be a fine way to suck them up without getting too close.

From: The Department of Entomology, University of Kentucky College of Agriculture:

-Large numbers of lady beetles (ladybugs) infesting homes and buildings in the United States were first reported in the early 1990s.

-Besides being a nuisance, the beetles emit an acrid odor and can stain surfaces with their yellowish secretions.

-Although Asian lady beetles do not transmit diseases per se, recent studies suggest that infestations can cause allergies in some individuals.

burntchestnut Writes:

"I have a friend who lives on the east coast and her apartment building is infested with Asian lady bugs every fall. This would be a great gadget for her. I like this because you use it to get rid of certain bugs and it's not like an outdoor bug zapper that kills all bugs, including beneficial ones."

Bug-A-Salt - Another Premier Fly Eradication System

"I don't like Spiders and Snakes and that Ain't What It takes to Love Me"

Just like the "'1973" Hit song by Jim Stafford emphasizes - There are a good many people that just don't like creepy crawly things. The Bugzooka was never intended for picking up snakes, but it will be useful with a good many spiders you come across.

      The Bugzooka sounds like just the contraption I need to get rid of all the Asian Lady Beetles that insist on taking over my office each year. There are several other bugs that I'd be willing to use the Bugzooka on, as well.

      Well I am going to have to try this, where we live we have the biggest problem with stinkbugs and ladybugs. Fall is coming and I know we will be getting invaded by those ladybugs.:(

      I got bit by a spider that left a nasty bacteria with me - so I don't like them. But I hate to kill them. I usually take them outside in a glass with a cardboard on top and let them go. They do have a place outside. On the other hand, if you are really faced with an invasion, you have to do something! This sounds like a good idea.

      Now we can all be armed and dangerous to bugs with a Bugzooka. Asian lady bugs are such a problem as they all think they should cozy up with us in the fall and its amazing how they can sneak through the smallest of spaces around windows. This is handier than getting the vacuum up for sure. I've never seen an abundance of stink bugs but got one in my mouth by mistake once when picking blueberries when I was little...always check before you put them in your mouth, stink bugs taste worse than they smell...yuppers, I spit him out!

      Every few years we get a small infestation of lady bugs. This would be ideal device to help get rid of them.
