Insect killers

Q: Is it permissible to use an electric/electronic device to kill off insects such as cockroaches, ants etc. Presumably such devices have a heating element under a plate and insects are literally roasted to death or simply electrocuted.


A: Yes.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
