My conservatory is full of hoverflies. All alive, some asleep, some shagging, all hovering

What to do? There must be about 50 of them. They're vile grim things and I don't want them mating in my house without my permission. Any top tips on getting rid would be gratefully received. Ta

They can hover while asleep?

They're kind of dopily hovering, sort of slow and dozy. I don't know whether they're asleep or not but they look sleepy and I hate them.

Actually, just looked again. They're all still now apart from one that is swaying backwards and forwards in a spiders web (I sound a right housework slut now don't I? Flies and spiders webs.) Also, I counted a portion of them and there's way nore than 50, more like 100. I can't reach them cos they're right at the top and they've settled in between the glass and PVC.

I get this with flying ants every now and then. I hoover them up.

Thats a good idea. Do they carry on flying in the hoover? I have a Dyson and it might be fun to watch them buzzing around inside.

Well with the ants they don't fly around inside the dyson very long I must say. (This must be one of the bizarrest conversations I have had on MN).

But it is satisfying to hoover them up - with the wand.
