The Bug-A-Salt is a plastic air powered gun, similar to a Nerf gun, that is designed to shoot salt to eliminate pests, mainly flies. Designed by Skell, a small startup company founded by a Santa Monica artist named Lorenzo Maggiore. Skell Inc. started an Indiegogo campaign for the Bug-A-Salt and managed to raise $577,636 of their $15,000 goal. Skell was nice enough to send us a gun to review, so check them out at www.bugasalt.com and pick one up while you’re there.
The gun comes in a while cardboard box that is open in the front, allowing for a better view of the gun, with some warnings telling you not to aim the gun at humans. The back of the box contains instructions on how to use the gun, fly facts, coupled with more warnings about not pointing the gun at anyone.
The Bug-A-Salt is a fun novelty item that does serve a purpose aside from entertaining yourself. If you live in Canada like us and tend to not have flies to shoot during the cold seasons (so all of the months), it can still be used to season your fries or other salty foods (Soup is not recommended). Thanks to Skeel again for the Bug-A-Salt sample and once again, you can pick on up at their website at www.bugasalt.com
