It's called the Charcoal Companion Amazing Bug Zapper, which is probably a bit of rhetorical overkill, but with pesky insects, overkill is exactly the level of kill desired.
What it is, in fact, is a fly swatter with an oversized face, rather like a tennis racket, and a grid of electrified wires that will finish off any fly that actually survives the impact of having this thing come down on its little buzzy behind.
Yeah, you can get classic fly swatters down at the dollar store in enormous quantities, but they don't offer the same level of grim satisfaction that comes with the $12.99 Zapper.
Batteries are included, your first set anyway. (It takes two AAs.)
