A Weird, Wonderful Way To Get Rid Of Flies

"Powerful. I think I understand hunting now."

Posted on

BuzzFeed SF had a fly problem, which we fixed with a weird, wonderful contraption.

It's called the Bug-a-Salt, an air-powered salt rifle.

A single blast of table salt, shot within a 3-feet range, is enough to smite most small airborne enemies.

The Bug-a-Salt annihilates pests like houseflies, mosquitos, and moths upon impact.

It's a ridiculously intense bug murder mechanism that's good for exactly three reasons:

1. Instead of squashing bugs, the rifle leaves them whole for easy cleanup.

2. It's non-toxic, unlike most bug sprays.


Here are some real, human testimonials.

Important to note that salt does get all over the place.
