In the past we had one of those ‘robot’ fly spray things, the ones that site up high and poison the air every 15 or so minutes.
A few months ago, when we moved to a place close to ground level, we rediscovered flies, and bought another robot. It seems we had forgotten the smell that these machines puke into the air, and quickly turned it off.
It is awesome.
After successfully ‘getting’ a fly, one
can must ensure it is dead by holding the zap button and jiggling the tennis racket shaped tool of death for a few seconds. This results in a fantastic blue-white light show, a crackling noise and the satisfying knowledge that you were personally responsible for the death of one more fly – without using poison.
