As I sit here scratching a fresh mosquito bite, I realize that the worst thing about warm weather is the unending swarm of insects. The big-box stores are filled with cheap solutions that promise to stop insects from ruining your outdoor events, but they often prove ineffective. YouTuber styropyro took an average $4 bug zapper and transformed it into a terrifying contraption that is sure to haunt the nightmares of any bugs that see it. He utilized an ignition coil from a car to generate voltages high enough to light a wasps nest on fire. It should go without saying, but don't try this at home.
According to David Grossman for Popular Mechanics: "To give his swatter a sufficient upgrade, styropyro ultimately replaced almost all of the original parts all to take a device that can go on the offensive against wasp nests and yellow jackets. The end result takes the device from a humble 2750 volts, somewhat stronger than a photo flash, to a deadly 50,000 volts. While absolutely not safe for any social setting, the end result here shows the results when you really, really hate wasps."
