Electric Fly Swatter £1.00 in-store @ Poundland

An electronic fly zapper styled as a racquet. Kills flies in an instant with no mess. How it packs such a big electrical charge with only 2 small batteries is a mystery - but just wait for the satisfying spark and crack as it catches the flies...

Ok so it wont win any awards for build quality but it seems to do the job (reportedly "burns flesh" according to an over-curious colleague) and at a quid a go you can't go wrong :D

Available instore only.

A satanic tennis racquet... great what next? A human cattle prod?

ive got one of these and they are useless,but you do get plenty of exercise trying to get a fly.The thing is the fly has to land on the racket to kill it,you can knock em about but you need a good connection for em to fry.Makes a cracking noise when you do finally get one

I actually find these very therapeutic. Especially when the little git has just tap danced all over your dinner and you've had to throw it in the bin!!
#11
these thigns doesnt kill flies, it just stuns them. the fly will dro and spin for a while on the floor, before flying off again.

it is however, useful with mosquitoes. can kill load of them with one swing. (gives u an idea of the swamp area i am living in).

the racket is very dangerous, as you can get small electric shocks from it. dont leave it around, as small children tend to think that its a toy, and they will get zapped by the racquet.

if u have babies and toddlers, i will recomment usign a fly catcher instead. its safer. ;)

Call me a sap, but killing things makes me feel guilty.

My preferred technique involved pillows, newspapers, or flailing my arms in a 'robot-of-doom' manner, often whilst cursing foul language very loudly, until the offending bug takes the hint and flies out of the window.

On a semi (barely) related note, when I see bees that have stayed out too late, sitting cold on the flowers, I revive them by warming them in my hand till they wake up and fly home. That earned BIG brownie points from my OH when she saw my "Bee whispering" act :-D

I don't kill 'em, I 'guide' them out of the house :giggle:

Killing a fly because its annoying you is pretty cruel imho, if anyone ever seen one up close on thos nature channels that we all flip onto from time to time when channel surfing, they are pretty amazing creatures,l not that that makes a difference.

I see nothing wrong with guiding them out of the house. Voted cold.
#20
I guess you have 2 options then... assume it only stuns them - can be used akin to a cattle prod :-D ... or to fry the gits :w00t: I would say that I think only flies are fair game. Bees are a very useful addition to your garden and shouldn't be hurt :x Like I said in the original post a curious colleague did manage to test this out on himself and it packed a fair punch for 2AA batteries so beware!

It doesn't sizzle when you get one :)
#22
Yep, I'm the "guiding it out the window" type, I won't kill it, Its sod law when you have the window open though as a load of Gnats come in!

I watched a fly have a heart attack as it approached the racket, the electric jolt revived it and it flew off!:w00t:

Can't believe some of the tree huggers on this thread.

Bet they'd think twice if it contaminated their food and gave them the runs...

Got one from Poundland last year and took it to India last year.
Even though it is not very effective alone against mosquitoes
in conjunction with ohter methods (ie creams, electronic repellents, net)
pretty useful

lmao! You took it to India?? That's akin to attempting to empty the Pacific ocean using a teaspoon isn't it? :)

As a general comment, I also find the use of a electric fly swatter pretty sad, why not grab some of the window nets that are being sold in Aldi/Lidl and give them a go?

And if a fly gets through it, live with it!

Or maybe we're truely a nation of Mrs Buckets?...sorry "Bouquets" :giggle:

These are only £4.99 each! We could all wear these 24/7 to barrier ourselves from the nasty buggies...

You sing it a lullaby, and then when it falls asleep on the pillow you burn the f**ker with a blow torch. :w00t:

A sure fire way to get rid of them is to turn to the hallmark channel, put on an episode of Quincy and They leave of their own accord!

I`ve just killed five flies, 3 males & 2 females. How do I know their sex?










3 were on beer cans & 2 were on the phone.

I've had one of these, they dont kill them just stun them!

Voted hot anyway as you can always stamp on them whilst they are stunned! :thumbsup:

Don't put your tongue on one of these, to check if it's working..
