This does not make for a comfortable evening (even though I used to get great satisfaction hearing the little devils fry...)

You are very welcome to set as many up as you want at YOUR campsite as mine will then be "bug free."
Darn Lou, but I'm starting to see somewhat of a sadist side of you here.

Curiosity got me:

Camping Rules and Regulations | Missouri State Parks has "The use of electrical insect-killing devices is prohibited."

Wow. I wouldn't have guessed.

I don't know Turbo, does it fall under this regulation?

The discharging of firearms, BB guns, paintball guns, bow and arrows, sling shots or any devices that use burning powder, explosives, compressed gases, etc. is prohibited.

Would air be considered a compressed gas?

Air is a gas and it can be compressed.

Back in the day when bug zappers were a fairly new gadget, my farmer uncle decided to put one up on a light pole outside his house. Unfortunately, being out in the country, and surrounded by flat fields, every bug within a one mile radius could see it. The first night it got clogged up so bad he had to go out and clean it up to keep it from self destructing. The next morning there was a pile of ashes under it about the diameter of a dinner plate and a foot deep. The moral of the story is: It has to attract 'em before it can zap 'em.
