The Bug-A-Salt air-powered RIFLE takes out creepy crawlies with a single blast of SALT

• The Bug-A-Salt is an air-powered rifle that blasts a pinch of normal table salt at such high velocity that it is lethal to creepy-crawlies
• Unlike fly swatters, which often leave smears of dead fly after they have been squashed, the only clean-up this remarkable device needs is a quick brush
• The device was designed by a Santa Monica, California-based artist
