Can bug zappers create disease hazards?

Bug Zappers and Insect Remains

One of the dangers of using a mosquito zapper is the unpleasant effect created while zapping a bug. The bugs sort-of explode into thousands of tiny, messy fragments (including all of the viruses and bacteria they carried which become freed into the air). Some studies have suggested that breathing the detritus of zapped bugs is less than healthy.

*If possible, keep mosquito zappers away from heavily trafficked areas.
