Fortunately, I’ve never had to use one of these… it’s a cockroach trap!
well done! :) In the old days they would catch beetles etc in there, then the next day pour boiling water inside to kill them, then the process would start again
You catch the pesky insects with it and then you smack them with your persuader! lol
Interesting, but cruel ;))
