World's best fly swatter!

I am overwhelmed by how efficient the Bernzomatic torch with the instant on trigger is for killing flies, a big issue when your shop is set up near your horses.

I might as well have a BB gun at close range. . The flies let you get really close and less than a half second shots kill the flies. On/Off. It scorches nothing else. I'm young and in love.

Oh.. I know this well! Itís evil but whatever.

My second favorite is a plastic tennis racket thing that takes batteries. You can get them at ocean state job lot for $6. It zaps them in a lout pop sound.

I would always turn off my shop lights and the horse flies would self immolate by flying into the bright light of the GH...

I finally got to get a chance today to stomp on a cricket that had been chirping up a racket for over a week behind my hood in the shop. It crawled out looking dazed (no surprise after hanging out up near my color furnace exhaust gasses) and I realize it wasn't very zen but it was quite satisfying to do after days and days of the audible annoyance.

Crickets should be escorted outside and left to their own fate.

Brown tail moths, on the other hand...
I make the rounds of the apple trees with a Bernz taped to a stick. I feel like the dragon must have felt in the last episode of Game of Thrones.
