Salt Shooting Bug Killer

Posted in Outdoors by Darrin Olson on May 12th, 2014

Bug A Salt Gun to kill bugsSummer is coming up and along with nicer weather in most parts of the country comes some pesky bugs. While fly-swatters and bug-zappers are effective, sometimes its more mess than we like.

Skell, a start-up company in California, is offering the Bug-A-Salt gun. This nerf-like weapon uses regular table salt to shoot down pesky insects, ideally from 2-3 feet away with a shotgun like pattern of salt. It holds enough salt to support 50 rounds and adds a little sport to the process.

LED clock eats bugs and converts them into energy

LED clock eats bugs and converts them into energyThis LED clock from British designers Jimmy Loizeau and James Auger is a morbid flycatcher and a timepiece in one. Think of it like a clock with spider sensibilities. It harvests insects on a sticky roller that’s covered in flypaper, then drops the corpses into a microbial fuel cell.

The dead bug is digested by the bacteria inside, and the chemical changes power the clock. Pretty neat and disgusting.

Fly-Goodbye pistol keeps your magazines clean

Fly-Goodbye pistol keeps your magazines cleanIf today’s beautiful weather was any indication, spring is finally here. Sadly, the bugs have arrived with it. The fly-goodbye will keep their population down and keep your magazines insect-gut free. Just insert the front tube that has some glue at the bottom, give it some pump action and fire.

If you are skilled enough that buzzing sound will cease and the fly will be trapped in the tube with glue. Brilliant. It’s like an insect carbonite freeze. It works more like a vacuum that sucks the fly in when the trigger is pushed, and you have to be about 1 to 3cm away from the pest, but still. Pretty nifty way of killing some insect game.

Bug Trapper: The clean way to get rid of bugs

Bug Trapper: The clean way to get rid of bugsSmashing bugs may be fun if you’re a cruel sort of human. But the problem is you’re left with bug entrails all over your wall, along with a corpse that may or may not fall to the floor, depending on how much goo is holding it in place. So, then you either have to clean up, or consider it part of the decor. You’re pretty nasty if you go with the latter.

The Bug Trapper aims to solve your bug guts problems. The idea is that you just trap the bug, flip the trapper over to close the door, and release the bug safely outside. Because that’s the humane thing to do (Unless it’s HUGE and fast, in which case you just squish the sucker anyway possible).

Raycop vac kills germs & bugs, looks alien
The Raycop vac looks like a weird alien stealth ship. This is the mothership that slowly approaches the carpet, casting a long, slow moving shadow that puts fear into bugs and germs. It‘s the Raycop anti-bacterial vacuum, now available in the U.S. and ready to shine it’s ultraviolet light on all anything small and nasty. This thing means business, with a 360-beat-per-minute vibrator that can shake all those mites and germs loose from the fibers they cling to.

Those creepy things invading your home will be dead in no time. It will set you back $250, but knowing that tiny germs are living out a Spielberg movie and getting sucked up by your vacuum mothership? Priceless.

Bugs found on Safari web browser for windows within hours of launchYesterday among a number of other announcements Steve Jobs unveiled the release of the Safari web browser for Windows as a public beta version. The browser had previously only been available for the Mac. If you were one of the likely thousands like me that downloaded the browser to try out on a Windows box, you may want to be careful with it for a little longer.

Within only a few hours, (some within a few minutes) of its release as many as six bugs were found in the browser were found and reported by independent researchers. The flaws included memory corruption errors and denial of service crash’s. All three of the reports were on Windows based versions of the Safari browser, but it was neither confirmed nor denied if these same flaws existed in the …
