Top Ten Most Elaborate Ways to Catch an Insect In Your Home

Insects were born on this planet to be ANNOYING! When you have a fly rushing about your house, the things that rush through your head in terms of ways to catch them are so elaborate they're unreal. So I made a list about it. Enjoy. Side note: I am NOT a crackpot. Honest.

The Top Ten

1 Leave some scraps of meat on top of a crate full of TNT, wait for it to land and detonate it

A great, ideal, genius way to catch them; at a minor cost compared with all that bug spray. - PositronWildhawk

An insect has befouled my house, better blow it up! - CityGuru

2 Electrify every wall in your house

Your gonna find a lot of animal corpses on your floor by your walls...

*Sigh* if only I could vote for them all...

3 Use a high suction vacuum airlock to remove all oxygen from the house

It's foolproof! You can get rid of any pest problem in a matter of seconds! - PositronWildhawk

Really foolproof, I must say. - Kiteretsunu

Well, you'll kill more than your bugs... - funnyuser

4 Seal the home up and leave the gas on overnight

Careful when opening the door. You may get a small spark... - PositronWildhawk

5 Drive your car through your house and try to run that sucker down

What if it flies out of the window just in the nick of time? Lol I guess you need to go to plan #2674124679074255. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

6 Grab an aerosol deodorant can and a lit match and attempt to fry it in mid-air

This is MEAN! I cannot watch such a little innocent creature being destroyed, especially this way. So I have to leave the room. - Britgirl

7 Find thousands of cobwebs and seal the doorway with them

I'd only do this because, I hate flies, but spiders are fine. And spiders are fine because, to any arachnophobes reading this, I DON'T live in the Loonga-Loonga Jungle. - PositronWildhawk

8 Shoot it in mid-air with a rifle

Yeah... You're going to manage that perfectly well... - PositronWildhawk

Better yet, a bazooka!

That has a 0.00000000000000001% chance of working, so try your luck! …and your insurance company's phone number, because the house isn't going to look the best after you kill that bug… - BlueTopazIceVanilla

9 Buy a high-energy laser for every door and window to fry any insects that go in
10 Poison all food in the house

And maybe go out for lunch instead of... Eating that... - PositronWildhawk

Be sure not to leave it in the fridge, so the insects can access it. - Turkeyasylum

The Contenders

11 Release another insect into your home to catch it
12 Throw your phone at one

NOOO NOT MY PHONE! Then it’s gonna have a disgusting bug stain on it and I’ll just wanna throw it away! Not to mention the awful cracks that will probably result since I’m an awful shot😭

13 Hire some Knights to kill it with swords
14 Set laser traps around your house
15 Hire "Dan the Dead Man" who ingested poison. The bugs will undoubtedly bite him.

I live in mosquito heaven as well, Minnesota. - CityGuru
