Flies can be a real nuisance, especially during the summer months. Cue the fly when you start cooking, and chaos breaks loose as you spend hours trying to chase them out of the house.
It seems like they work hand in hand with their counterpart, the mosquito, who seems to take over the nightshift once the flies have wreaked havoc during the dayshift.
But people have had enough and are becoming more creative with methods to eliminate flies. While some still believe in the power of insect spray or a rolled up newspaper, others are bringing out the big guns (literally).
Bug-A-Salt is the name on everyone’s lips, but what is it and how does it work?
According to the website, a miniaturised shotgun effect is generated through this ingenious design. Ordinary table salt is utilised as a lethal projectile with accuracy range of within 3 feet, and bugs will remain whole for easy clean up.
Bug-A-Salt is non-toxic, it does not require batteries and is excellent for flies on windows, ceilings and in corners.
People are clearly loving this product as in less than a year and a half, South Africans have spent a total of R3 million buying miniature shotguns to be loaded with salt BusinessTech reports.
