The heat always brings in loads of flies and i can't take any more!
I have sticky fly things up but they are not landing on them.

Is there any way of getting rid of them?

I have tried swatting them but i keep missing!
The dog tries to catch them but he missed too!

Fruit flies?

I have invested in a swatter and am getting pretty good - but feel very evil blush

You need a big spider to sort the little buggers out!

No not fruit flies, normal flies.

My dh killed over SEVENTY flies using a fly swat. (It was the same day I posted about dead fly casserole).

Shall I send him round?

the dyson/hoover blush. Suck them up and empty the cannister/bag in the garden. This gets rid of them. The small black ones are easy to catch if you wet your hands because they stick.

constancereader has your DH got a special belt made up "I killed 70 with one swat"? Or am I the only one old enough to remember that old story?grin
