What you imply but perhaps what needs to be said is that fly swatters need not be limited to flies. A creative person can use a fly swatter the way Chaplin used a pitchfork. A serious limitation of the fly swatter, however, is its ineffectiveness with ants, creatures that have been plaguing me since I was born. It took them 50 years to find me after I left Brooklyn, and now they have evolved into supervillains that feast on the TAT ant traps that used to kill them. I find that the finger remains the only surefire way to deal with them. Is there an ant swatter?
