I hate flies. I detest flies. I abhor flies. I loathe flies. I… I think you get the picture. Why do I dislike them so much? The answer is simple: their offspring. Maggots. I shudder every time I think about them. They are nasty, vile creatures.
My solution? Pine boughs and spiders.
According to what I’ve read, there are many things that repel flies naturally. Fly swatters, window screens, citrus, spiders, and pine boughs are a few. Therefore, I am putting out a nation-wide APB for spiders and pine boughs. We have the fly swatters and window screens and I’ve seen too many flies on citrus fruits to believe that they will work.
While I’m not particularly fond of spiders (read as: I kill them every time I see one), if they will obliterate these flies, I will LOVE them. Literally. I will make sure they are protected from brooms, dogs, and Bella’s bug box. My house will be a spider sanctuary.
So, the next time you see a spider in your house that you want to re-locate, call me. I will gladly take him. He will be VERY well-fed.
Note: Please, don’t send anything poisonous. Or man-eating.
