how do you kill a fly environmentally friendly?

I saw a rather big fly walking on a side plate tonight, and decided that I shall do something about it. Here's the result:

I covered the annoying fly with glass. (sorry Don, it was just a regular glass of Laurent's, not your high class crystal glass.) Sealed it up with some sticky tape, and wait. That's all.

I sealed the fly at around 8.15pm, and by 9.20pm, the fly was upside down (long dead).

A beautiful way to kill a fly environmentally friendly, I'd add.

I don't have "high-class crystal" glasses. The one I'm using now is plastic.
Anyway, even I wouldn't go to that great length to kill a fly.

I am surprised you didn't rush out and buy some high-end fly zapper to do the trick!

Don,
Are you one of those very environmentally friendly person?
Rev. Dr. Wu Yi,
I decided to use some low-end free and environmentally friendly method to stop you from whinging on useful gadgets.

Sort of, but I wouldn't really have a problem with just swatting the fly instead of sealing it off.

Don't you think ‘swatting’ is not elegant enough to match your high class status?

No, but I'm not high-class. Still, I have a feeling that even actual rich people wouldn't mind just swatting the fly.
