Instructions

  1. 1

    Keep a can of air freshener on hand.

  2. 2

    Wait for the fly to land on a surface.

  3. 3

    Slowly grab the air freshener and sneak toward the fly, avoiding any sudden movements.

  4. 4

    Move your arm slowly until you are holding the nozzle of the can close enough to spray the fly with mist.

  5. 5

    Press the spray button quickly and hold it down so that the air freshener coats the fly's wings. The coating makes it difficult for the fly to escape.

  6. 6

    Spray the fly again once it falls and it should die within a few minutes.
