Knock Down Flies With Water


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Do flies get into your house when you open the door? Do you have to chase them for an hour until they light long enough for you to swat them?

Keep a spray bottle of tap water under your sink, and when you notice a fly flittering around, spray it with the water.

The water temporarily makes their wings overload and they go to the ground - an easy target.

This also works for sweat bee's and honey bee's.

For Bumble-bees, hornets or wasps, spray them with hair spray. Their wings stick and

they crash. Doom's day - just don't step on them with bare feet.
