A re-useable cap that clips onto an aerosol can of insecticide.

It contains an actuator, a rechargeable battery, and a bluetooth radio.

Having paired the device with a smartphone, place the can on a window cill.

When a fly wanders into range of the spray, use the smartphone app to release a small yet effective puff of neurotoxin.

       This is quite a good idea.

       The nozzle should turn to point at the fly.

       in the dim dark ages if the 1960s, my dad had a pistol- grip aerosolizer with a detachable glass jar and replaceable freon container, allowing dispersal of arbitrary fluids.   

       This would have been trivial to convert to the described device.
