Spray for Flying Insects

I have been using spray bottles with plain water; water and vinegar; or water and dish soap to spray on these winged flies, bees, etc. in the house. I use the spray to drop them and then go in for the kill.


They can't fly with wet wings. No more fly swatters and guts in my house. Spray, drop, and wipe up. Done. I'll wipe the windows, etc. down afterward.

Good deal. Get to spot clean at the same time.

Brilliant! I'm always doing battle with some kind of bug in my old house. Lately it's spiders on the ceiling where I can't reach them (and usually at bedtime, eewww). Do you think this would work with spiders? I'm always afraid I'll knock them off the ceiling and then won't be able to find them (can't sleep til I do).

Thanks for a great idea. I hate the fly swatter squish.
