Fly killers are they safe.

Mine is it wouldn't kill a fly if a used the whole can.

Not for flies they ain't...

Have you tried using the can to club them to death?

No I prefer a gas attack but it seems futile.

Not so sure of that they seem to get off on the stuff, diving to the floor and dancing around until too tired to get up.

We use one of these, nothing like the smell of fried fly and a flash bang and sparkle or two click here

Don't forget that the instructions for using fly sprays are always to close the windows, spray the room and leave a while with the door closed then to vent the room. Most people madly chase the fly in vein looking for a direct hit!

I use one called "Strikeback". It is more expensive but very effective.

More importantly, it is approved, used reasonably, in kitchens, and remains lethal on surfaces such as walls.

If you have a mass of flies about the place, then it might be time to look for a corpse of some form and type!.

spuds, I bought one of those tennis-bat-fly-swatters recently but no flashes or bangs when I make a 'direct' hit with target insect[ usually a gnat ]. Can I make any modifications to increase the 'Zap-voltage' delivered?

  spuds 10:09 10 Oct 2015


Nope, its a one zap voltage that kills all device. I think it all depends on how the flying insect lands or is attracted to the zapping mesh. Sometimes it can be rather spectacular, other times, just like a damp squid!.
