If you want to take a more direct approach to pest control than bait traps, a bug vacuum is an easy and sometimes fun way to rid your home of pests. More human bug vacuums simply trap insects in a chamber so you can release them safely outside. If you intend to kill the pests in your home, some vacuums use heat, UV light, or bug zappers to quickly kill insects once they’ve been sucked up. Cordless bug vacuums are lightweight and easy enough to use that your kids may enjoy hunting bugs around the house. For heavy-duty jobs, a larger capacity corded bug vacuum may be best.
