Frequently Asked Questions

Q   How many ShooAways do I need?
A   On the average 6-8 seat dining table, two ShooAways are recommended. Purchase an extra one to give away to friends and family.

Q   Will a ShooAway keep away mossie's?
A   Sadly not but mossies don't normally go for your food.  They go for you.  Mozzies have different types of eyes to flies.  The flies compound eyes
see the "bouncing" refracted light as movement.  Some midges also are repelled but sadly mozzies aren't.

Q   Do they work in the rain?
A   No - but then flies don't like rain either so while you are sitting eating in the rain the flies are having a rest.  Seriously though
please don't let your ShooAway get wet as they are electric motors so any water is likely to damage them.

Q   Do they work indoors?
A   The ShooAway unit is most effective when in good light.  The reason for this is that the holograms embedded in the tip of the blades refract and bounce light which the flies compound eyes perceive as being "movement".  Flies are very sensitive to movement which is why the little sods are hard to catch and the "movement" is why they stay away.

Q   How tall are they?
A   The height of the unit (blade height) is 25cm.  They are designed so that in a normal dining situation they are well below eye height to allow people to converse easily without the units being "in your face" so to speak.

Q   How long do 2 x AA Batteries Last?
A   Using quality batteries, ShooAway will run for approximately 30 hours. Naturally, once the food is cleared from the table, turn off your ShooAways to get the maximum life out of your batteries.

Q    How long will the ShooAway Motor Last?
