Catch a Fly – the Easy Way


Bzzzz… you hear it before you see it.

A pesky fly is in the room!

You immediately run off to fetch the fly swatter.


There is something that works better.

A bottle of Windex and a paper towel. Yes, you read it right. Try it!

Flies always gravitate towards the light, right? So most of the time you can find them hanging out, buzzing by a bright window.

Armed with a spray bottle of Windex and your trusty paper towel, aim and spray the little bugger!


Ta-da – Stunned fly! Pick him up and either squish and toss him out or gently set him outside so he can try to enter your personal space again.


Easiest way to rid yourself of an annoying pest AND clean your windows while you’re at it.

    Huh… Never thought of that. Great idea! I know those silly sticky traps that you can hang around aren’t doing the trick for me.
