Shop Local: Bay To Bay Hardware

Where else can you buy an electric chair for rodents, tool kits, pool supplies — and rent a helicopter, all the while knowing that your money is staying in the community?

Gift this: Not a creature was stirring, especially not a mouse if you gave the Rat Zapper Ultra (right) as a Christmas gift. The Zapper ($44.95) uses four D-cell batteries to electrocute your rodent problem, luring the critter in with bait and then delivering a heart-stopping jolt. With optional “Rat Tale” remote sensor ($12.95) that lets you know when you’ve had an execution if you have to put the trap in an attic.

4215 W. Bay to Bay Blvd., Tampa, 813-839-5977.
