    Do Flyswatters actually work?

    I have a bunch of flies buzzing around b/c I keep my door open (better ventilation). And I haven't smashed a fly in two years. They're fast little suckers.

    I don't own a flyswatter but I want to know if they're a meme. I remember swatting flies back in the 70s when flies could get in through the cracks around crappy screen doors and the like, and I remember having pretty good success with them. Are they faster or I'm just deteriorating faster than I thought? Because I can't get the little sunsabitches with a rolled up newspaper. I wonder if it's worth it using an actual flyswatter or if I'd be just as pathetic with that.

    Anyone use those electric flyswatters? I know the salt fly rifle is a meme and doesn't work. I also don't want to be shooting salt all around my house.

    So what do? Fly paper? yuck.

    close the door?

    yes, flyswatters work, just as a rolled up newspaper.

    So, probably not for you.

      Get a squirtgun, they drop when hit with water, then smack them with whatever. They dead. Or get an electronic zapper racket. Hold it above them they fly into it. They dead

        The Bug A Salt works wonders in the shop, but I would not use it in the house as you mentioned. If you do go the Bug A Salt route, be sure to get the Green one, the Black one is less "powerful".

        I have three fly swatters in my shop so my boys and I have competitions to see who gets more flies.

        Both of my preferred methods require aim, speed, and agility. If these don't work for you, I would say you are too far past your physical prime before I would suggest that flies evolved higher top speeds in a few decades...

          Huh, I must have fallen for a negative shill campaign, because now I see that they are well reviewed. Hmmm, I hate goddamn marketing, because now is it a media campaign to sell them and you have fallen victim to confirmation bias? Ugh, it's tough being a genius sometimes....

              Those electronic tennis rackets are fantastic.

              Also recommend the bug-a-salt. It works great for slugs and snails too.

                Ahhh I see, yes it's the "lawn and garden" model. I assume then I'll have piles of salt around my house in a few short days.

                Maybe the electric one like McChevy said. I can just hold it over them then scare them into it.

                  If it's any consolation: you only think you're a genius.

                          A fly swatter must be made properly...it needs to have a stiff handle and the swatting surface also needs to be somewhat rigid but with minimal air resistance. I have a few , about 3 bucks each and they even have little spikes on the killing surface to impale the insect....Fantastic swat to kill ratio...

                            Cant say that I have ever had an issue with the standard fly swatter sold in almost any store in the world for a couple bucks.

                            Maybe quit jerking off to women beating videos for a bit and allow your wrist and forearm muscles to heal up? Should increase your quickness

                              Flyswatters work great if you aren't blind drunk or feeble...
                              Green bug salt gun is more fun and works great.
