A hanger for all swatters and related fly-murdering apparatuses so they are readily at hand, yet without laying around all over the place like they were before.

Okay, so not the most dazzlingly difficult project in the world.
But still, eliminating one more little irritation makes life that much more calm. :)

There is something very gratifying when a skeeter explodes in the zapper tennis racket. Sometimes you almost need ear plugs it is so loud.

I accomplished the same project with just 3 nails hammered into the wall.
Nice effort however.

Wow—you must have alot of flys! Everyone gets a swatter. Those big ones look like tennis rackets. Do you swat bugs with those too? Nice project.

Thats funny! I like the minimalist approach too.
The big one that looks like a tennis racket is great, but it isn’t necessarily for swatting. I use it more like a net, when you get over the insect it starts lighting’m up.
