Review of Products: BUG A SALT 2.0 FLY GUN – DIRECT FROM PATENT HOLDER
It works! This “Bug A Salt (Bug Assault, get it?)” is a great way to turn indoor pest control of flying insects into your shooting gallery. The main target I use this for is on those PESKY pantry moths.
Fly at home annoying. It is worse if you can not kill him. This is where the value of Bug-A-Salt comes in. You can get rid of your frustration with bedbugs harmlessly and inexpensively. Grandma Factor is for anyone who wants to try it.
The product is sold directly from the manufacturer. They back it with a 90-day warranty with proof of purchase with a one-year limited warranty. Their website provides easy-to-follow instructions on how to use it along with some troubleshooting information as well.
The gun uses the pump movement to supply the energy behind its launch. You don’t have to buy batteries or worry that they won’t work. It glides smoothly back and forth. Makes the sounds you expect and add to the fun.
The manufacturer’s website contains two YouTube videos full of cheeks that you display on the job. They do an excellent job selling the product and making fun of themselves. We suggest looking at the site. Funny product description with graphics and other information it provides. You can only laugh when advising to call your local DNR about flying fishing regulations.

Inexpensive to use
Salt is used for ammunition and is readily available anywhere. You can get 80 rounds per load. Fill it over it near the front. Then, you can cock it and start shooting. The rifle has a vision and an automatic safety latch that you must release before firing.
Each filling is about one or two tablespoons of salt. You’ll enjoy one before it’s time to refill it again. The manufacturer confirms that it is the only ammunition that you should use. Otherwise, the warranty will be void.
The product will not be destroyed
The force behind the gun is not very strong. And since the ammunition is light, it won’t hurt anything if you use it inside. The advantage it provides is access to hard-to-reach areas. According to the manufacturer, you can use it safely on mirrors or windows.
As mentioned above, it does not shoot hard and for this reason, you need to approach the flies to get it. The manufacturer recommends a distance of three feet. They also stated that it would not leave a mess concerning errors.
It works as described already and kills pests if the mark hits. Each dose sprinkles a small amount of salt on your target. You need to pump it before each shot. It is relatively easy to continue shooting until you get the error.
great works shot a lot of flies from a pull. Sitting in the back gazebo pull everything that moves, it seems that the rashes were informed that I’m packing the heat a few escaped only injured I guess. My Roomba picks up salt and corpses. Stay away from stupid people and children. I retired recently, so I have a little time on my hands and it really makes killing flies much cleaner than not drawing blood. Within reach of point-white, you can blow your head off. Lots of fun killing those boring flies. I feel like I have all this right now.
This is the Criteria I Rate this On:
Effectiveness: 4 out of 5 ( BUG A SALT 2.0 FLY GUN – DIRECT FROM PATENT HOLDER)
When the fly gun is cocked properly, the payload is sufficient to hit most flies if they are pea-sized or smaller. BUT, you need to bring it close.
About less than a foot away if you want an effective hit. Any further and you are likely to need several follow-up shots. Also, it’s better if you use it on stationary targets, try to resist attempting to shoot down a fly in flight unless you don’t mind peppering ample salt grains all over your floor from missing.
On a GOOD hit, the fly will drop dead, but on a bad hit, the fly is maimed and will flop around and you will need to crush it with your shoe or conventional fly swatter. But most of the time, the fly’s wings will be crippled and it will likely end up crawling away to its death in some dark corner behind the fridge.
Range: 2 out of 5 ( BUG A SALT 2.0 FLY GUN – DIRECT FROM PATENT HOLDER)
Like mentioned earlier, this gun is not very ranged. You CAN score decent hits up to 2 or 3 ft away, but that is pushing it for its effective power to kill flies. The further away you are when shooting at the fly, the more likely you will knock it away without doing effective damage to it. Treat this fly gun like it’s a shotgun with a buckshot/birdshot payload and use it accordingly. An about 1-foot range is usually good enough in my experience. Point blank will likely splatter the fly into a slime stain.
Usefulness: 4 out of 5 ( BUG A SALT 2.0 FLY GUN – DIRECT FROM PATENT HOLDER)
Even with the fairly short range, this fly gun is incredibly handy. You can finally shoot those damn bugs off of ceilings, high walls just barely out of reach, and any odd places that you can’t reach with a swatter or rolled up a magazine. Even if you don’t score an immediate Kill Shot, often the flies are maimed enough to die eventually or you can finish the job yourself.
Reliability: 3 out of 5 ( BUG A SALT 2.0 FLY GUN – DIRECT FROM PATENT HOLDER)
This part sort of took me by surprise. The fly gun I got sometimes worked great when I pumped it, but other times the payload from cocking it fell short. It seems you have to tilt the gun barrel pointing slightly downwards when pumping it to get a proper salt load in. If you tilt the gun barrel pointing upwards and pump it to reload, the gun doesn’t seem to collect a proper payload amount from the ammo reservoir.
Also, I’ve noticed the gun sometimes has issues shooting an effective payload when pointing it UP at a target, especially noticeable when you aim it straight up in the air, then you will be shooting almost nothing out the end of the barrel. However, this is not too big of a deal, since you can just pump it again and work around these issues such as re-positioning yourself so you don’t shoot straight up at anything.
Novelty & FUN: 5 out of 5 (BUG A SALT 2.0 FLY GUN – DIRECT FROM PATENT HOLDER)
It’s a GUN that you can SAFELY shoot inside your house against winged pests such as flies, moths, mosquitoes, and other nasty flying insectoids.
I’ve shot this directly at the paper and it won’t break it, so this model is safe, in my experience, on mirrors, glass, ceramics, and other similar materials, although you must take it with a grain of Salt (get it?) that depending on what you load in it, you might have more power in the shot but more collateral damage on sensitive and fragile materials such as paper or weak glass. Plain Morton’s table salt is safe in my experience, but keep that vacuum handy to mop up when you’re done.
