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.
Here are some real, human testimonials.
"Powerful. I think I understand hunting now ... There's a certain kind of person that is looking for a thrill in their daily life, they'd appreciate the Bug-a-salt." — Brendan K.
"It's elevated in-home pest control to a sport. Also: no more nasty fly-swatter messes." — John P.
Important to note that salt does get all over the place.
