No flies on kids these days

Or is there, some of their remarks I just find hilarious. Loads of flies around where I live and I have been spraying them with fly killer with little result. I was told it was because they had become immune to the main ingredient NAPALM. Before anyone comments, no I did not try lighting the can.

We bought a bug zapper for this summer and it really does cut down the number of flies buzzing around indoors..

Net curtains, Screen door and a Venus fly trap to catch the few that get in works for me.

As for the flies just have to put up with them.

Sounds a good idea FB as I can't find any Novichok on Ebay, as for the flies I suppose I could take up fishing as a hobby :-)

I'm told Hairspray is effective. It glues the wings so they can't fly, makes them easier to catch.

if you want to stop flies entering the house via an open window or doorway in hot weather, get one of those ziplock polythene bags and half fill it with water. Drop in a few 1p coins, and hang the bag up in the opening.

Flies/wasps etc. will not pass it.

So said a client of mine who lives in Carolina - he said it works like magic. I haven't tried it myself.
