  • Asked by William from Kahuku
    05/10/2018
    Q
    Any suggestions for using the Bug-A-Salt Fly & Bug Salt Gun in regions where there is high humidity which causes the salt to clump?
    A

    Table salt is the only thing recommended for use in the Bug-A-Salt Fly & Bug Salt Gun and it can unfortunately get clumpy in areas with high hunidity.  One suggestion is to add uncooked rice to the container that you store the salt in so that the rice will absorb moisture from the salt. (Do not put rice in the Bug-A-Salt gun).  You can also remove any build up inside the gun by soaking it in hot water and letting it dry completely before adding salt.  Also, the cartridge will hold enough salt for 50 shots, but you can try only adding salt as needed or ½  amount so that the salt does not sit and gather moisture between uses.  For further suggestions, please contact SKELL INC at 310-392-3288.

  • Asked by Jeff from Mcallen, Tx
    12/01/2017
    Q
    How come my Bug assault isn't killing flys even though I'm within 2 feet of them?
    I've done the foil target practice and I'm dead aim within 3 feet of the target. How come it isn't killing flys when I shoot them no matter how close or far away I am. They are stunned briefly but are back up within minutes BUGGING me again.
    A

    We apologize but are uncertain why the Bug-A-Salt Fly & Bug Salt Gun would not be killing flies. The manufacturer prefers to troubleshoot any issues so we recommend contacting SKELL INC. 310-392-3288.

  • Asked by Will
    04/01/2017
    Q
    Can Bug-A-Salt Fly & Bug Salt Gun be used in a deer stand?
    For insects like wasps, bees and carpenter bees
    A

    Bug-A-Salt Fly & Bug Salt Gun can be used inside and outside for flies, mosquitoes, and almost any other insect.  Technically you are not supposed to shoot anything that stings so we can't tell you that it will kill a carpenter bee, wasp or other bee. What we can tell you is that we have several guns in the office and we have shot beetles, stinkbugs, centipedes, weevils and very large flies (we shot these around the exterior of our office, none of these bugs would dare venture into DMOPC territory!) and all of these insects have succumbed to the Bug A Salt Gun
