I can't even begin to tell you how much I truly HATE flies! My family thinks I am insanely obsessed with them! I hate this time of year for the fact that flies are trying so hard to save their own lives that they start invading homes.
I spend soooo much of my day running around the house with the fly swatter in my hand trying to kill every single fly that enters my home. I have even had multiple fly strips hanging in the garage and laundry room trying to keep them from getting into the house!
My fly swatter which has come to just hang on the OUTSIDE of the closet so I can get to it quicker than opening the door to get it. It seems like whenever I have it in the closet, the flies "hear" me opening the door to their deaths and fly away!
The idea of them crawling around on the counters, food, walls, chairs, etc and leaving their "germs" all over everything brings me to such disgust that it makes my skin crawl just writing about it!!!!!!
This is the time of year that I start to look forward to the first freeze to kill off all those little annoying buggers! I know my thoughts are not very kind but they are absolutely, disgustingly dirty little creatures that I just want them gone. Who wants to pick up something to eat when you don't know if a fly just "might" have been walking around on it earlier!!!!!
