Choose your weapon

I don't know about your place at the moment but as soon as we open the door in come the blow flys.

We've had so many that I've had enough.  They drive me nuts and the dogs are scared of them.  Not to mention that they turn each and every windowsill into a fly graveyard.

So I've had enough of just using this

and I hate anyone using this, especially the males, none of whom know when enough is enough.

So this morning I headed off to the local hardware shop and upgraded my arsenal...

A bug zapper for the back door and

a bug catcher for inside.

Of course we haven't had one fly since I turned them on so I suppose you could say they work.

Funny you should post about this. My hubby has had it with them as well and suggested getting one of those zappers. It was stinking hot yesterday and we couldn't get in the front door because of the blowies. Even fly spray didn't get rid of them. We had to use the other door where they dont hang out.

They are so annoying especially at tea time when they appear from nowhere!

Hope you new zapper solves the problem :)

I think I should get one too. Our 2 years old even getting skill swatting them cause there are too many too practise.

Wow - they work! Well done Judith.
No blowies here - but we are inundated by ants ... must be some rain coming soon maybe. cheers Wendy

Well must say I'm disappointed that we've hardly had any flies since getting the zappers. So not sure how well they work yet. The boys are of the opinion that they are just attracting other insects. Not quite the purpose. :)

We don't have those flies, but we are infested with stinkbugs - I hate them!
