We could laugh at plant jokes all day, but do you know what isn’t funny about plants? How incredible they are at attracting insects. We’ve all been there; after an exciting day of potting indoor plants and aesthetically placing them around the house, we’re visited by that familiar buzzing to ruin the fun. Luckily, we can help.

Wondercide’s Flying Insect Trap is designed to attract those pesky gnats and other flying insects and lure them in with the Blu-V™ light. When they’ve been bamboozled into flying to the light, the trap will capture them in a sticky adhesive cartridge. The trap is a hands-free way of helping defuse the bug infestation that comes with keeping plants inside the home. All you have to do is plug it in and then sit back, tell some dad jokes, and let the Flying Insect Trap do its thing!

We hope you spend this day laughing and enjoying the simple things in life. Today is the perfect day to bother everyone you know with terribly wonderful jokes, limericks, pranks, gags, and flim-flams to get everyone laughing. International Joke Day gives us permission to be our weirdest, wackiest selves and tell all the embarrassing jokes we’ve been dying to but never have. So, take this day seriously, and don’t take anything seriously to embrace this hilarious holiday!
