As I sit, there is a fly, loose in my house. I don't allow flies in my house. When it gets 90+ they try and hitchhike their way into the house, when a door is opened. I've become a mad-woman.
"Watch for Flies!"
Right now, I only have one brazen little fly, tormenting me and my cat. Don't ever, underestimate a fly. As soon as I get up and get the fly swatter, they hide. As soon as I give up, they are back.
My husband says, "Maybe the fly is lonely." or "It just wants to play."
Susie the cat and I, do not want to play. We want to kill.
I am always so proud of myself when I hit a fly. They are hard to get. I especially like the ones, I can hit, mid-air. WOW! Gottcha you dirty rotten, poop eating fly.
Did you know, that when a fly lands on you - in order to lick off your delicious salty sweat, they throw up on you? At least, that is what the husband told me.
This fly this morning, is a little one. The BIG black horse flies are the bullies of flies. They dive bomb, much like a mosquito. They also like to hang out in gangs- and once inside your house, they fly around in circles like buzzards. There have been times when I have gotten so mad, that I go in, swatting - and come out the loser. I know they are laughing at me.
I bought an electric fly swatter that electrifies them. For me, it did not work. They know. Those little brains work and they instinctively know, to HIDE.
When you have a dog, you have flies. My husband goes out every morning and picks up dog poop to eliminate or at the very least, cut down on the fly population. It is much better after he does that. The trash cans, also have a sizeable fly population.
If given a choice between a fly and a spider, I always choose the spider. Once, there was a spider web in my kitchen window. A fly got caught in the spider's web. NowI know, this sounds like I am some sadistic serial fly killer, but the fly was making a noise - probably calling out to me to save him and I just let nature happen.
After it was all said and done, I did feel bad about it. Honestly, if I had freed him, I would have tried to swat him. I don't like them in my house. I justified it as a science project, right there in my kitchen window. It did take a couple of days before the fly died. Spiders like to inflict torture.
I don't have a problem with spiders in my house. The reason? That is for another post.
