Washed the kids' high chairs on the lawn last night the there were a few bits of mango and strawberry washed onto the lawn. Now there's about a thousand flies on them - the large-ish shiny green ****ers.
Also, the chook pen is relatively fly free most of the time. But as soon as there's a hot day there's thousands of the little ****ers all over that too.
Where are these flies hanging out the rest of the time? I've tried following them to find out but it's too hard. And I can't fly.
Their Lord spawns them on demand to give us mortals the SCREAMIN' SH##S!!
The little bastards always know when both my hands are full. Then they attack the face. Bastards!
Flies like to hang around pieces of crap,
So I would guess my x-girls house must be full of them.
Glad Im not bitter at her.
They hide in old blokes noses, have a look, you can see their legs hanging out
answer: They all wait in the eaves of your house playing cards . Chatting about absolute crap , telling lies to each other for amusement!!!
Waiting for you to do something as you have described , then they fly into action begrudgingly.
They come from parent flies. Some lay eggs which hatch into maggots, ( there are lots of species). The big brown flies here actually give live birth, if you squash one live maggots come out. My ex discovered this early on in our Australian sojourn and has never forgotten it.
There is pretty much bugger all you can do about them but a South African chappie came up with a brilliant invention called the Red Top Fly Trap. It consists of a strong four litre bag attached to a lid with a gauze funnel. The bag is baited with a meat meal concoction and hung out in the sun.
They are extremeley effective but have one really bad drawback and that is the stink. However if you can put up with it it is very rewarding to watch it fill with drowning flies and a sea of contained maggots. I filled a four litre one in three weeks in Bathurst. That is a hell of a lot of flies.
Made bugger all impact to the general population but gave me a lot of satisfaction
By the time you finish enough bottles of wine to make the hat,,,
You couldnt give a f@ck about the flies.
It has always amazed me that you can be several miles offshore fishing and you still get flies hanging around the bait!
Where do flies come from?
When a mummy fly and daddy fly love each other very much...
Like Duh!! They come with trousers!
Have you ever wondered that if flies are attracted to rotting food,sh!t ( & Lotofwinds Xs) etc, then what is in the fly repellent that we smear all over ourselves that even flies don't go near.
"In March next year two new species of dung beetle will be imported from Europe and it is hoped they hold the key to eradicating the bush fly."

The bush fly's here at home tend to want to sit up your nose in your mouth
I think it is sweat that attracts them..
The bigger fly seems to sit in my vegie patch in amongst the parsley and alike and under the green shady foliage at the front door.
The blowfly however hangs around my windows and doors when I am cooking
November has always been a bad month for flys
What about millipeades!!! have you ever been attacked by a plague of them !
When I lived in South Australia, it was rumoured that some of the local females had found a way to keep the flys off their faces...
They would sit with their knees apart
Dont flys come from Margaret River ?????? [}:)]
would that mean maggots come from Rockingham ?!
You can always kill them and use them for Fly Art.
You really need to find something to do when there's no wind.
The real problem is what to do when there is no wind OR flys
You remind me of a dude in my class in school who used to pull the wings off flys and call them walks.
maybe you could go see your X
We had a guy in our class who use to hit them lightly to just stun them, then get a strand of long hair (usually plucked from an unsuspecting girl) and tie a little knot around the flies neck. When the fly comes too it would buzz around in circles while the guy held onto the end of hair. Pretty fuggin funny.
