I thought that might have the opposite effect.

The tool for the job was a FLIT GUN, but you cannot get one these days. It was like a bike pump with a can hanging under the end of it. You filled the can with "FLIT" pumped the handle, pointed and presto ...dead fly. Get them in mid air and they dropped dead to the ground, none of this lying on their backs and spinning around for an hour. Killed everything instantly, wasps, horseflies, blue bottles, all you had to do was put the dog out before you squirted the stuff and the job was a good un.

While I'm at I can't buy creosote to do my cabin either. What's gone wrong with the world?

No Harry, it is quite a fat bugger actually, the aroma from my wine glass is getting it to do figure of eights and back spins. Quite a show off really.

Funny barstool. Sounds like an Olympic gymnast type fly

Looks like saddo has a bigger problem on his hands to deal with

This could be a problem solving thread…

Waft the air around the fly. The resulting air currents disorient the fly, so it looks to land anywhere asap.

Cut a long thick elastic band.
Hold the one end between the finger and thumb, and the other end between the finger and thumb of your other hand.

Stretch the elastic band and stalk the fly.

When your one hand is close to the fly, take aim and release the one end of the elastic band - splat. Strike one fly.

No quarter asked, no quarter given. That's the way I operate.

When I’ve swatted one I put it on a piece of card and throw it onto a spiders web in the garden.

So when God says to me “What did you do down there Happysandwich?”.
I’ll tell him I fed he’s little creatures and he’ll let me through those Pearly Gates.

Classic film.
The best scene is  the shooting dead a family on a farm. When the camera pans up from the cornfield where the gunmen are, shockingly exposing who is playing the character of Frank.

Lol! Those things drive me to distraction, can't rest until I've got them with the fly-spray.
Having said that , the wife got one of those Nylon fine meshed net curtains that you hang in front of the back door and we rarely see one indoors now. Happy

not saying you should get one of these barstool but when on holiday in spain years back the hotel had this big fookin grill type thing on the wall  outside our rooms window ,in the night it would light up with a neon florecent  tube which attracted insects ,you would hear it buzz as small insect flew into it ,every so often it would make a loud frying noise and look as if it were going to burst into flames  as a big b,stard bug flew into it ,in the morning there would be u huge pile of burnt critters under the grill .
