How to Maximize Use of Swatter as Fly Control

Environment,Health,Home Improvement
Even the most airtight home is going to be infiltrated by flies at some time during the warm months. And the best way to deal with this problem is the old fashioned way -- with a fly swatter. A flyswatter is a hand-held device for killing flies and other insects. You can avoid the chance of disease transmission or infestation by employing these simple guidelines that will show you how to trap, eliminate, and dispose of the common housefly.

Dealing with manual fly termination does not involve the fear and dread of eliminating bees or spiders, but the fly's speed, elusiveness, and ability to walk on ceilings can pose a challenge. Most flies that enter your home are regular house flies. While some fly species, like the stable fly, can actually bite you, the housefly does not bite.

Any cheap fly swatter will suffice, but one with flexible plastic at the end is more useful in fly disposal. Your swatter needs to be easily accessible. The housefly has an average speed of 4.5 miles per hour, so some planning is a better tactic than just aimlessly lunging into the air with the swatter. The venting reduces wind drag, making it easier to hit a fast-moving target such as a fly.

How It Works

Brandish the swatter in your preferred hand. If it is daytime, move curtains aside and patiently wait for the fly to land on the window. Swatting them directly against the window is the best bet, but you'll have to use a sanitizing wipe to clean the area afterward. You can even "trap" them with the fly swatter against the pane, then quickly pull back and then in again for the kill. This method is highly effective.

If it is nighttime, turn all lights off except for one. Then focus your surveillance on that single light source. Just like before, the fly will come around; you just have to wait for a few minutes. You can kill them on a lamp, but that might be a dusty affair if the lampshade hasn't been vacuumed in some time. It is better to lure them onto a window next to a lamp, and then engage as you would during the day. Strike the fly very fast, without hesitation, with the swatter. If you miss, the fly will start circling faster near the ceiling, out or reach, and might not be catchable for several hours. Even if you crush a fly, don't assume it is dead because it's immobile. Flies have a distinct way of playing possum. Vanquishing a fly only to have it launch back out of the garbage can is quite discouraging. Instead, use the swatter like a spatula, move the fly onto the floor, even if it looks dead. Then hit it again. Just to be safe, you can even dispose of it in a sealed sandwich bag to avoid any seeming rebirths.

The safest, cheapest and most effective form of indoor housefly control is the fly swatter. Depending on how skilled the fly is, it can also be good exercise, too.
