Bug zappers

Is anyone aware of interference or complications with bug zappers-you know the kind for mosquitoes, etc.

Only clarifying that because there was something online that mentioned zappers but it was a parasite zapper that you apply to your body?

I'm strictly speaking of the average bug zapper. I can't seem to find any clear message on this.


Not a problem

About the only way a bug zapper would bother your pacemaker is if you went over and hugged the thing while it was turned on. Even then, I don't know if it would bother the pacemaker but I'm guessing you'll get a pretty nasty shock.  

I've grabbed a live 110 volt cord and got shocked but it didn't bother my pacemaker. It didn't even hiccup.  Just kept on doing its job.  The pacemakers are tougher than you think.

Rest assured theres no problem with bug zappers. I love those things, the zzzzt sound, and the sudden flash when a bug finally strays into one. I even have a hand held tennis racket zapper I use on the patio to entertain guests. Just don't hit yourself with one though, it won't affect your pacemaker but will leave a grill mark.
