    I got the coolest Xmas present I'd ever received this year = Bug-A-Salt

    We still had some flies here, and I shot one and it literally disappeared / disintegrated

    It's actually made well in plastic, stiff to cock and OH BOY I'll have some fun

    When I retired and came home this place was full of copperheads, but haven't seen one here in the past few years. And, that black bear hasn't returned either.

    Maybe I should bathe more often than once a year......

    Yeah but their shell is much like that of a turtle so you have to shoot em from the side.Shoot them from the top and they will just smile as it wont penetrate.I usually get w/in 1" and take the shot. First year I took out 200+ of em.second year about 100+. This summer only a few.Thinking they don't travel far,so when you wipe them out in your area your good.Also it will kill them thru a window screen

    How far can you be from a house fly before it loses effectiveness?

    Closer the better for a good tight pattern,max range around 12"-18" for a house fly.

    I saw these for sale at my local Orscheln store. I wonder how effective they are against Japanese beetles?

    We're lucky here, I haven't seen Japanese beetles in years.

    However, I shot my first stink bug with it yesterday - about 4" to 5" away on my chimney. It bounced off like doing a back flip, landed on the floor and I stepped on it to make sure.
