Insect zapping gadgets

Postby Trooperman » Fri Jun 05, 2020 10:44 am

Seems to be a plague of very annoying flies around at the moment.
Has anyone got an exterior "Insectocutor" that works?....and that, thus, can be recommended?
I've tried a chinese cheapie that does kill whatever lands on the enticing light, but which is ignored by the flies that still want to land on me!
I suppose one ought to be aware, as well, of erroneously killing off beneficial insects. So what's the best FLY killer in your experience, please?

There are repellents; Halley from the farmacia is my favourite but most people like Deet based products

We suffer from flies in the kitchen from time to time. I’ve tried most things and found that old fashioned fly papers work well.. Very cheap at your local ferretería.
