GMG's Friday Find: There's a Fly in My Soup...Pass the Salt!

For those of you who are opposed to killing anything, stop reading.  For those of you who own a flyswatter, read on.  There are some bugs and insects we just have a hard time living with. Even the Dali Lama was asked once why he swats at mosquitos, and his reply was "because I have an issue with them".  I'm not a huge fan of spiders or flies when they have taken up residence in my home, and I'm hard pressed to find anyone who doesn't mind co-habitating with these little pests.

Now there's a new weapon in the war on flies called the Bug-A-Salt.

It looks very much like a children's play gun and is almost as simply designed.  It has a chamber to hold salt (enough for 50 blasts), a safety (just in case) and a trigger.  You simply load the gun, point it at the offender (the fly on your cofffee cup for instance), release the safety and FIRE! The small pinch of salt that is sprayed on the malefactor causes its demise. I suspect the fun comes in acquiring a near perfect aim as the fly target is on the tiny side, however, I also suspect the fun comes from some ancient cellular memory of kill or be killed!

As an alternative to the fly asault weapon, RESCUE! offers disposable fly traps that work humanely by luring the flies into the trap where they die in peace. It's nice to have options.

And for some really gross fly stats you may consider,  flies carry over 100 different disease causing germs, they lay eggs on your food and vomit on it before feasting (truly disgusting), they lay 3,000 eggs in their 21 day life span, and their larvae hatch into maggots within 24 hours. That's enough yuk for me, how about you? Check out the video and give us your thoughts on this fly assault weapon.  Is there a place in your home or office for it?  We'd love to hear from you.
