Tried a couple of the usb ones in the van at different times but they weren't up to much. Seen a mains one in a stable that you can hear working if anything flys into it Looks like Squirrelcooks link above

These things might work in some places, but not on the west coast of Scotland in summer. Midges don’t come out till mid to late may, till September. In certain conditions such a light rain and wind they are unbearable. We avoid the west coast after two years ago when we had to abort a trip south of fort William. My advice head east or avoid the west coast between late May till sept. We sat out last night in Dunbar, if we had done that on Skye we would have been eaten alive.

Obviously meant to buy one ... in Lidl this morning. Pic too large to up load.
A light and zapper, no sticky pads to buy. USB c and 220 adaptor. Rechargeable. Only £11.99.

It’s a well known fact the the reason the Romans never got past the Antonine wall was the Caledonian midge. When Julias Caesar ordered his legions further north there was a revolt and the legions prevailed. Their leader said we would rather face wild highlanders than the midge. So if the whole might of the Roman Empire could not defeat them, what makes anyone think that an £11.99 purchase from a German supermarket chain can :)

You will only make them angry, there’s only one effective way of beating them, HEAD EAST :)
Correct answer . Acquaintance live near Skye have 2 industrial machines on their decking . Some weeks it's impossible to sit outside

These contraptions might work on inferior English midges, but not on the wee buggers we get up here.:)
