ATTACK of the KILLER house flys

like fer real, i'm so not even kidding i wish to hell i was, and sadly no it wasn't just one fly, no oh no, my house was full, FULL of at least well over 100 fucking house flys. i. kid. you not.

now we have had like 1 or 2 or mabye even 3 in our house at one time before and i always comment to hubby like how do they get in, or better yet i thought that buy "building" a brand spakin new house we wouldn't have this issue as i usually consider or connect them to an older house. don't ask me why i just did. well i don't any more, because we have a problem, or better yet I have a problem as i hate, loathe, disgust any type of insect and once you get a "herd" of them all you can hear is this constant buzzing sound which just makes me shudder just recalling the horror.

so the story goes a little something like this.

i come home from work yesterday just like any other day, only it's really warm, like almost summer weather warm, so it's nice, really nice and sunny, hence the reason these houseflys are out like a banshee and all over the outside of my home. me thinking nothing of it, just enter my house again like any other day (ha) only as i walk through the door, not one or two but (thousands) not sure of the number here but anyways, they all hit me in the face and i hear buzzing, like everywhere and as i slowly turn around, i see them. in fact i almost, almost can't even see my door, that's how many there were. and as i begin to whimper and scream in horror and am now staggering/stumbling futher into my house i see more of them on my other 2 doors. i'm almost now crying at this point and the thought that this is some sort of practical joke that my hubby has played on me crosses my mind but i cross that out as he just wouldn't be that cruel (one would hope)

so with tears in my eyes and a scream captured in my throat i grab my weapon of choice. well really two. i first tried my piece of crapola of a vacuum cleaner, it did well but was just lacking the suction power i desired. so my weapon was........WINDEX and it's sidekick PAPERTOWEL, i think these two would rivel BATMAN and ROBIN as they kicked ASS. still. the fuckers got on me though. like . eww. but it worked. and when hubby got home he thought i made the whole thing up as there were only like 1 or 2 still floating around on the ceiling.

would i make this shit up?

like, no

and sadly, i tried to take a picture to capture all this drama so that i would have proof but the light from the door ruined it all to hell

I was living in an upstairs room in a resort in Minnesota where I was working,and when I woke up one morning, the entire room was full of bees, on the bed and everything. I hollered for Herb (the owner) and I think they heard me in Atlanta, Georgia. Other insects don't bother me much, except for maybe wolf spiders( I don't mind other spiders).

My brother's place here is full of flies, too. When they jacked up the house they rendered the place completely devoid of square corners, so they cannot fit screens on. A tick off because it's been a hot summer. They also had a nasty fruit fly infestation a few weeks ago. Talk about gross. And let's not forget my recent bedbug scare. UGH! Death to creepy crawlies!

Flea - croaker is right. There is something that the maggots are feeding off of and growing...if in 3 days you have the same problem, you need to find the source. Of course, after a while whatever it is..should end up eaten or just dried out...Iknow, I know...super gross.

That is so sick. I totally know what that must have looked like because one time, in my parent's house, my bedroom had these mini-closets built into one side of the room. I opened one of the doors and the inside was lined with lazy, slow flies. They were just crawling all over it! They didn't even move when I opened the door. It was so gross! My dad had a shop-vac with made suction and he just sucked them all up but not before I gagged about a dozen times!

i'm happy to report that i went home yesterday and only a "few" minimal flies were about...so either the nest had just hatched or it was just one of those freak things. dunno. but i hope they are gone for good.

appreicate everyone's thoughts and comments during this "stressful" time. ha ha!!!

Croaker's right, something's laying eggs big time (I vote for window ledges) and the sun's hatching them).

Bleach the suckers and get hold of flypaper. Gardening stores sell it.

YIKES Scrunchie, give me anything but BEES!!!!! EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!

Glad they're going, Flea but look out in spring....
