Bug-A-Salt 2.0 Insect Shotgun - Lawn & Garden Model
It's been over 6 years since the original Bug-A-Salt shotgun, an insect exterminator whose only ammo is simple table salt, blasted through its crowdfunding campaign, and took in over half a million dollars in pledges. Its creators even delivered the product to their backers, and have since turned Bug-A-Salt sales into a full-blown fly-eradicating industry.
Or at least a sweet (and salty!) novelty gift.
I don't know when Bug-A-Salt released their 2.0 Lawn & Garden version of the saline sprayer, but I do know we're heading into a season when a spray of saline that "decimates flies on contact" could be a welcome addition to backyard decks and patios. Bug-A-Salt deems this shotgun the Lawn & Garden because it holds more salt and fires with more power than their standard model, which is more acceptable for use indoors.
Like the standard model though, the Bug-A-Salt Lawn & Garden required no batteries and no chemicals to do its job. Truly the only additive is ordinary table salt. Use it to take down flies, mosquitoes, roaches, cabbage worms, aphids, and stinkbugs. Including those in-flight, depending on your aim.
Bug-A-Salt fly shooters are recommended for adults 18 and up only. Also, if you get one, don't be a punk and shoot salt at random animals, people, or honeybees.
