Goodbye pinches and sleepless nights. Thanks to the protection offered by electric mosquito nets it is possible solve the mosquito problem and nocturnal insects without having to resort to dangerous chemical agents, in a safe and environmentally friendly way. And with the advances made in technology, the products available today are incredibly sophisticated and stylish. Here are the best electric mosquito nets of 2021, and how to choose the right model for you.
It is an extremely simple device, consisting of UV-A ultraviolet lamps which attract mosquitoes and many other types of insects, including midges and flies; when the latter come into contact with the electrified grid, they are instantly electrocuted.
The classic mosquito net is square, and consists of an additional external protection grid that prevents the dangerous parts of the device from being reached. Newer models, however, tend to include a suction mechanism sucking in nearby mosquitoes; for those with children at home, the latter are certainly preferable to classic models.
Types of Mosquito Net
Robust and wide, or light and cheap? There is an incredible variety of electric mosquito nets on the market, each with different strengths. To get an idea of which is the most suits your needs you must first decide the positioning you intend to adopt. In other words: indoor or outdoor environment, and how much surface or rooms should it cover? How many insects are there more or less in your area? Broadly speaking these are the parameters to consider:
- Costs: Give yourself a maximum budget to allocate to the purchase.
- Consumption: A higher power also corresponds on average to higher efficiency, but also higher consumption and, in some cases, greater bulk. Always remembering, however, that even the most powerful lamps have very low consumption.
- Design: A classic design, open on 4 sides, is more likely to attract insects; but indoors, a slightly more sophisticated design sometimes doesn’t hurt. We therefore suggest mosquito nets with fan for the interiors, and classic rectangular mosquito nets for the exteriors.
- Fan: This is an option that also attracts insects that escape the light.
- Removable drawer: To facilitate safe cleaning.
Does it only work at night?
Contrary to what might seem obvious (and even if, despite this, most users tend to turn them on mainly during the hours of rest), electric mosquito nets can also be activated during the day; in this case, they are very useful especially in comparisons of tiger mosquitoes and flies, very active during the day and particularly annoying.
How much do you consume?
In general, a consumer-class electric insect screen needs something understood between 15 and 25 Watts, but clearly there are very large models and / or with advanced features the suction fans that can easily exceed these values.
In any case, a mosquito net does not impact excessively on the bill; assuming an average electricity cost of 0.2 € / kWh, keeping a 20 Watt mosquito net on for 8760 hours (i.e. a year in a row, day and night) costs about € 35. In short, at the end of the month, even using it assiduously, let’s talk about a few pennies of cost.
How to Clean an Electric Mosquito Net?
First, always consult the manufacturer’s instructions; in fact, even when the power is off, electric shocks can occur, so it is essential to use the device according to official indications.
However, avoid abrasives or abrasive objects, and rather aim for them slightly damp soft cloth with simple hot water, always and strictly with the power disconnected. Some models include a cleaning brush.
Where to Place the Electric Mosquito Net?
The truth is that every place is perfect as long as it has it in close proximity an electrical outlet; battery-powered models, in fact, are always very little powerful and therefore not very effective. The most strategic places for positioning, however, are the kitchen, the veranda, the bedroom (or the corridor in front, if the violet light bothers) or the garden, perhaps inside gazebos and tensile structures.
Avoid placing it outside the window, because you would get the opposite effect to the desired one: you would risk attracting insects to the room.
