Works well when there is a lot of them. One can catch a dozen in a minute.

never thought of the actual vacuum! but there is a special hand held wand that sucks up bugs....I have an electric paddle that I electrocute them with!!

I hate when one of those cheeky lil bastards goes too high for my central air vacuum tube extension to reach and I have to chase them around or balance on top of a stool, lol

Great technique! Hopefully your home isn't possessed, I hear flies are a sign of that type of thing

My personal favorite is the torch- the kind of handheld one you'd use to sweat pipe. Huge amount of heat, short range... just don't get stupid with it and it works great.

That would really have spoiled the atmosphere in the movie The Amityville Horror! (Sp?).

Pretty cool idea, though.
Beats chasing them around with a rolled up newspaper.

Did this with the shop-vac and stink bugs. TOTALLY trashed a perfectly good filter.

It was worth it tho...
heh-heh-heh

I can vouch for this! It worked for us a couple years ago. Bluebottles or something. One turned into 20 real quick.

Works really well when you think of burning the house down.

i try not to kill bugs, because all the trillions of dollars the r0thschilds own cannot even bring a fly back to life.

so here is what i do-

i have a water spray bottle. just water. then i hit the fly with water. it does not matter where you spray, because its water.

the water gets the fly's wings wet, he drifts to the ground. then i use a napkin or cup to scoop him up. then i talk to the fly (shamanic technique) telling him to stay outside and avoid people.

the spraying water bottle works perfect.

I employ a very similar tactic.

I have a spray bottle of vermouth. When I see a fly I take the spray bottle and spritz some Dolin Blanc into an icy martini glass which I then top with well-chilled gin and an olive or two. I take a sip or three and then I use a fly swatter to smash that fly into the next life.

Works every time. And it's good for you too.

Industrial strength elastic bands worked for me. We lived out in the country and we'd get all those giant military special forces bluebottles that sounded like a B52. Fired off an elastic band at one that was buzzing at the window from my sofa at the opposite side of the room. Didn't expect to score a direct hit, but the critter was squished flat.

Old cassette tape boxes made useful little scoops. Maybe a laser pointer or a mini-drone?

I bought 2 for my boys last Christmas. They immediately used them to season their food. They are both in their 20's.

I use the vacuum. It's a bug's heaven in there, full of dog fur and whatnot. They can nest comfortably in the fur, and eat the whatnots.

I tried hitting a fly on our patio window with the vacuum cleaner...

Who do I send the bill to for a new window?

Oh yes It Does!
Had a fruit fly infestation one morning.
It seemed like there was hundreds of them.
I made a fruit fly trap and sucked up as much as I could with the vacuum.
Worked wonders!

When I was a teenager, my grandfather had yellowjackets nesting under the clapboards of his farmhouse. They were entering and exiting through a knothole in one of the boards.
He set up an old vacuum cleaner and fastened the hose to the side of the house with the end of the hose next to the hole. He turned the vacuum cleaner on and left it run for hours. Every yellowjacket that came out of the hole was sucked into the hose, and every one that came back to the nest was sucked up when it tried to go into the hole.

When he thought that he had captured most of them, he decided that he would open up the vacuum cleaner.
I asked him if he wasn't afraid of them coming out and stinging him...
He said, "Oh no, they will have been all chopped up by the fan in there.

He opened it up and closed it again promptly, as the bees were not ever in contact with the fan and were alive and well.
