Product Overview

Bug A Salt Fly Gun - The Fun Way To Get Rid of Flies!

Bug-A-Salt has new and improved upgrades to the salt gun – the Bug-A-Salt Fly & Bug Salt Gun - Camofly 2.0. It has many improvements that make this tool an automatic buy for any house. The first feature is an increased range of three feet and an increased rate of fire, which make it all the more effective against flies and other flying insects. It also comes with a texturized handgrip and using less salt per shot, makes it easier to use and has minimal cleanup. Last, but not least, it is made of stronger materials, which prevents broken gears that plagued the original Bug-A-Salt. The gears have been configured differently than the Original Bug-A-Salt, allowing less stress.

Looking for the perfect holiday gift?  Look no further! The Bug-A-Salt uses a pinch of ordinary table salt to shoot a concentrated spray pattern of ordinary granulated table salt, killing flies, mosquitoes, and other small insects, knocking the pests out of the air, and still leaving them in one piece. While you can use conventional measures, like bug zappers, fly swatters, or flypaper, they are often unsightly and unsanitary. The Bug-A-Salt is the effective and fun way to control the insect pest population in your home. The salt shotgun is battery-free, chemical-free, non-toxic, and does not hurt furniture or walls.

To use more effectively, practice shooting the gun on aluminum foil. This will show you the salt spray pattern of the product, showing how far away you can get before losing effectiveness. Also, the closer you are to the targeted insect, the better your accuracy will be, a distance of 3 ft being ideal. Use Vaseline or WD 40 to lubricate the handle of the cocking mechanism and keep it functioning for years.

Flies have long been our enemies at picnics and in our kitchens, at restaurants, and any other time they buzz around, knocking into windows and slipping away from our flyswatters. Bug A Salt is the new answer. Designed for killing flies and other nuisance insects with ordinary table salt, Bug A Salt is the fun alternative to the old-fashioned fly swatter and messy bug zapper, turning pest control into entertainment.

Advantages of Bug A Salt

The Bug A Salt makes flies and other nuisance insects public enemy number one, creating a new hunting season that requires no license and is a year round sport. Flies may seem to be a fairly benign annoyance, but they can carry numerous disease-causing germs that can cause scary diseases such as dysentery, typhoid fever, and tuberculosis, to name a few.  Flies are drawn to our food, where they feed, defecate, and lay eggs. This makes flies very unwelcome around kitchens and dining areas, but hanging unsightly flypaper and using unsanitary fly swatters isn’t always an option.

This is where the Bug A Salt comes in. Not only is Bug A Salt a non-toxic, battery-free salt gun, it leaves bugs whole, making clean up much easier. Without chemicals, this Bug A Salt is a perfect fly killer for indoor use and safe around food.

How to use Bug A Salt

Bug A Salt takes about a pinch of salt to knocks flies dead. It is very simple to operate: simply load top with table salt, which will give you 50 shots. Then, cock it by sliding back the handle. Remove the automatic safety, and the sight should pop up on the top, indicating it is ready to shoot.

Practice shooting it against some tin foil, which will show you the salt spray pattern, making it easy to tell how far away you need to be. Being closer to the bug gives you more accuracy. Bug A Salt is perfect for bugs in corners, on ceilings and on windows.

Before you start your mission to destroy all flies, make sure you watch Bug A Salt’s YouTube videos and read their safety policy and code of conduct.

Safety for Bug A Salt

The Bug A Salt Gun takes safety very seriously. Before purchasing, please read their safety policy and code of conduct in full. Here is a brief rundown of important safety features and policies for operating the Bug A Salt.

  • There is an automatic safety that is engaged each time it is fired. This makes it difficult for it to be accidentally fired, as it must be manually set to shoot each time.
  • The cocking mechanism of it is stiff, making it more difficult for kids to operate it alone.
  • You must treat the Bug A Salt as a loaded at all times. Never point at people, pets, or valuables.
  • Never leave Bug A Salt in the cocked position. Not only is this dangerous, it will also shorten the lifespan of your Bug A Salt.
  • When shooting it, ensure that all people and pets are behind you.
  • Never shoot anything but flies and other harmless insects. Never use Bug A Salt against any animals (including rodents and snakes) and never use on potentially dangerous insects like wasps, spiders, and scorpions, and shouldn’t be used on beneficial insects like butterflies and bees.
  • Do not modify it in any way, including the paint. Law requires the orange paint.
  • This gun can only be sold to those 18 and older. Those who are under 18 should never use this gun without direct adult supervision.

    awesome

    By Crisanta on 10/27/2015

    Works great! Boyfriend loves it and this is a man who owns many different types of guns from rifles, shotguns, and handguns. It's quick to load, easy to fire and the distance is good. He even killed a few hornets (even with their outta hard shell). He is not easy to please on gifts but this gift sure gave me a 5 star girlfriend rating so your product deserves the same. I bought this on a Tuesday and I had it on my door step by Friday!!! Thank you!!! Sincerely yours. Crisis

    Fun When It Works

    By Rad on 12/16/2016

    As the title says it's a fun toy to use to shoot pests like flies and spiders. However after cocking it doesn't always 'fire' and the pest gets away. After re-pumping and resetting the 'safety' it will 'usually' fire. For $50 I didn't expect a 'Quality' item. With that said I'm fairly pleased with the Bug-A-Salt

Has anyone used the Bug-A-Salt Fly & Bug Salt Gun - Camofly 2.0 on scorpions?

The concept looks good, but it probably lacks knock-down power.

A

Per the manufacturter of the the Bug-A-Salt Fly U Bug Salt Gun, it may "sting" scorpions somewhat, but would most likely not have enough power to completely kill them down due to their hard shell.
