How do you control house flies
We just had a major awakening of house flies in our duplex. All of a sudden house flies were coming out of the window frames filling the air. They must have been hibernating in the walls. Has anyone had a similar experience? I've heard a lot of wives tails about controlling flies, but none have worked for us. Any thoughts.
Are you looking to get rid of them entirely?
I always use a fly swatter, but if they are pouring in from everywhere I would bomb the place and go away for the weekend. Or call an exterminator. Get some fly paper-that can trap a kangaroo rat. (true story)
When we would get flies in the car or in the house sometimes we would lead them to an open window, but this was only a couple of them.
I have no sympathy for flies.
I've used my cap to swat them when they land. You might want to call an exterminator if there are as many as you seem to indicate.
I talked to one of the neighbors about it. The locals call it being "buzzed". It's a phenomenon that happens in many houses each spring. I can tell you this much. It freaked the wife out!
House flies can be a nuisance in the house. You should try an insecticide, a fan, Sticky fly catchers too are not bad. I always have a fly whisk at hand to swat any that lands nearby.

What methods do you use to rid your house of spiders?At the beginning of summer my husband and I noticed a huge influx of spiders. Here in Kansas we had to be worried about the brown recluse and on more than one occasion I knowingly killed one. I'm going to be having a baby in November and I want...

That buzzing fly in your house....does it just drive you crazy?I hunt it down. Thought I got it. It re-appears again, landing on me. Swat again, it's on the floor, it wakes back up in three seconds and is buzzing again. If you don't see guts, it's not dead! I hate flies!
