Unless you’re an entomologist, you’re probably not excited about having bugs in your house. Whether they’re spiders, flies, roaches, or centipedes, your first instinct is likely to get rid of them immediately. To find the best bug-killing gear available, we turned to experienced exterminators and entomologists, and we interviewed a Caltech aeronautics professor who has spent more than 15 years studying the evasive flight behaviors of houseflies. For two years, we’ve tested flyswatters, bug vacuums, and an assortment of bug traps to make our recommendations.
