Despite the fact that little boys are supposed to love playing with bugs, I’ve always disliked insects – especially anything ending in “pede.” I think all those legs just creeped me out.
But if your kids love insects, then you might want to buy them this gadget, which lets them suck up bugs and then study them up close and personal. The fly-goodbye gun uses pump-action suction to capture bugs into plastic cylinders, each of which keep your bug prisoners alive long enough to inspect them via a magnifying lens at the end of the tube.
Of course, you can also use it to suck up unwanted pests and let them loose outside (or cut off their air supply and put them out of their buggy misery if you’re feeling cruel). It’ll also sweep up dead bugs you just would rather not touch.
The Fly-Goodbye bug gun is available over at Gizmine for $59.95 (USD).http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyZCQeT2Odo
