I have 2 that came with the house when I bought it.  I mostly use them to sweep the dust out from under the fridge :)  I don't have bugs or flies.  If one does get in they are fiercly hunted by my 2 cats who eat everything from spiders (God bless their little souls 'cause I HATE spiders!!) to bumble bees!

the only bugs that bug me are mosquitos and wasps.  For wasps if you spray them with high hold hairspray they can't fly and drop to the ground and then I step on them.  For mosquitos I have 5 cats who LOVE eating bugs so we rarely have any in the house for long.  You see one, you call a cat and within 5 minutes the problem is generally solved, lol.

Hairspray:) That was a good advice:) Bit isn´t it painful for the wasp?
