Remove thunderfly bug from your screen

Working outside in the porch today I got myself a life bug in my laptop screen. I heard about it before, but never had one until now. They are called thunder flies and are little nasty bastards that crawl in your lcd screen. They are a few ways to get rid of them, most important, don’t crush him until he is at the edge of your screen.

Method 1 – Path blocking

Apply light pressure with your fingertip to block his path (approximately 1cm from the bug) and guide him this way to the edge of your screen. The best place is the bottom. When the bug is (almost) out of side, crush it!

Method 2 – Using your phone’s flashlight

The little bug does not like to much heat. With the flashlight from your phone you can block force him to run to the otherside. Keep enough distance at first, because if they get to hot they are dead. (and you are left with a black dot)

Method 3 – Removing a dead bug

When the bug is dead you can try to use your fingertips to vibrate the screen. This way it will fall down to the bottom and be out of your sight. If vibrating with you fingertips won’t work, you can also use a suction cup mount from you GPS for example . Attach it to your screen and gently pull it back to create some room between the screen and display.
