    UGH! I hate flies. I think there has been an explosion in the fly population.

    I haven't seen half as many wasps though.

    I was thinking the same thing myself a few days ago. They are really driving me mad this year, especially the little ones who hang around the lampshades. Even the Vapona stickers don't work with these guys.

    my pet rats love to chase them around cage. they think they are scrummy...

    have taken cages out of room and sprayed with fly spray, will have to keep cages in another room till tomorrow, then make sure no flies are left, dont want the rats to eat them if they have spray on them..
