Log in to Reply Usually ignore it till I lose my cool, than go on a mission from god to strike that pesky fuck down. Fly swatted, shoes, slap, doesn’t matter, I’m gonna get that thing hell or high water Log in to Reply Revolver Log in to Reply I don’t kill it. I trap it under a cup and take it outside. I do that for all bugs tbh. Log in to Reply Just swat it out of the air, it normally injures them to the point they die. The trick is swatting where you anticipate they are going next, not where they are. Log in to Reply Turn off all the lights and open the blinds. Soon as the fly goes near the window I kill it. Log in to Reply Vacuum cleaner hose, suck them up right out of the air Log in to Reply With chopsticks of course Log in to Reply A Bernzomatic TS8000 mapp gas torch, gets em every time. Log in to Reply I have these square Japanese-style fabric lamps and the top comes off of them. Insects are attracted to light, so I lift the top off the lamp and wait until the fly goes in, then I close it. Because my dog is scared of the fly swatter. (And the fly) Log in to Reply Wait til It’s by the window and open the window quickly then bam it’s out of your life. Log in to Reply Nuclear warhead Log in to Reply Sure way i do it, is use their methods against them. Flies are attracted to light, so you turn off every light in the house and turn on the 1 light in the restroom. Lure them into a small space then whack them with a fly swatter. Log in to Reply I have 3 cats. Two of which don’t like being picked up but really like eating flies. It is a wonderful, joyous, fantastic time every time they try to decide if their desire to eat the bug overrides their dislike of being held. Seriously. I love it. It is my favourite thing to be woken up at 3am because they can’t reach a fly, 100% Log in to Reply My computer room has a window facing my front yard. Once that fly motherfucker landed close enough to me on the glass, I grabbed up my butane crack torch and singed away its wings and legs. It feebly buzzed and squirmed around on the windowsill until it finally, mercifully, expired. Log in to Reply get a real high powered blow torch and fire it up Log in to Reply My two cats will deal with it easily. On the downside the whole room will be destroyed in the process… Log in to Reply I eat a massive amount of beans and get drunk on IPA beer. The next day nothing can survive the farts. Log in to Reply Open up your blinds—you’ll hear them when they’re in the window. Then, wham! Log in to Reply I use my sons air soft pistol with no bb’s in it. Death by air Log in to Reply I got one of those lights that has fly tape on the back side. Put in the darkest part of the house…it’s magical. Log in to Reply I’ve had good luck using a small towels to whip them from the air Log in to Reply When they land you can get your hand right over them if you move slow enough they don’t react you can get to just inches then they can’t escape a swat. Log in to Reply My fiancée found a fly swatter with a flip flop on the end that yells “Gotchya!”. I think it asserts dominance. Log in to Reply With *vengeance*! Log in to Reply Wait for it to land and spray it with a household cleaner like Lysol. It will get wet and be unable to fly away. I learned this hack from google and it really works. Log in to Reply Salt shotgun works great. Log in to Reply 1) Clap your hands flat together about 9″/23cm above and just behind them. 2) Use the “Sadistic Ballistic”: knot two rubber bands together and mount to a paper clip; use similar to a slingshot. Fly will explode into pieces. 3) Buy a salt gun Log in to Reply We used to close all the doors to the house, and turn off all the lights except for one. They eventually fly toward the light. But we just bought an indoor bug zapper and it works well. Log in to Reply I stabbed it with my knife. Mind you it was a group of them but I like to think I got the “one pesky” fly out of the bunch Log in to Reply if its a really annoying fly that is only flying around me distracting me from my game when the door in my room is open like 2 meters away from me. i would catch it, freeze it so you can tie it up and burn it slowly on a candle like a witch. or get a really sharp knife and cut super small peaces of the legs and wings and when you done just breathe on it till it dies. this could be a question from the fbi or some insect defenders to get the craziest people, but in my defense i am way to lazy to pull this off Log in to Reply spray + lighter. One small tap is all it takes Log in to Reply Stand in the corner, look straight ahead. When it moves, you’ll be able to track it. Swat it.
