Why it's so hard to swat a fly

Try one of these. I got mine, much cheaper from Aldi, but they only occasionally have them in stock. I keep one in virtually EVERY room.

The device electrocutes them, so is not a 'swatting' action, and a stealthy advance, carried out slowly achieves great success.

I have poor eyesight, and arthritic hands, but a game of 'Fly Tennis' sees me dispatch most of them, most of the time. Admittedly, a few do manage to elude me.

Also does clothes moths, wasps and other nasties.

I KNOW THE FEELING ELIZABETH.

THERE'S ONE KEEPS BUZZING AROUND HERE, IT DOESN'T SEEM TO HAVE ANY PURPOSE IN IT'S LIFE BUT TO ANNOY PEOPLE.

ROUND AND ROUND IN CIRCLES IT GOES ALL DAY, BANGING IT'S HEAD IN THE WINDOW.

IT'S BEEN HERE THAT LONG I DECIDED TO NAME IT..................

I reckon the best buy to get rid of flies is the 'Tusk Top Fly Trap'. I can't do links but you'll find it here:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tusk-Top-Fly-Trap-Red/dp/B000F6BYWM/ref=sr_1_cc_9?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1532450287&sr=1-9-catcorr&keywords=red+tops

You'll be surprised at how full the thing gets!

Posted by: nanajacqui (1591)  Report abuse
Thanks for that info gideon,I've ordered two for the gardens,I've got three of those like they have in cake shops for inside & they're brilliant

Posted by: basil brush (10144) Report abuse
I'd rather him, and the other cowardly cronies go to tuther site and stop causing trouble on Wigans no1 site.

Posted by: lectriclegs (3313) Report abuse
He doesn't upset me at all, in fact he quite amuses.

calls people cowards from the safety of his keyboard, then skrikes like a child when when someone asks to meet him.

likes to try and bully the ladies as well, know wonder he has been banned off here on numerous occasions.

Posted by: Stardelta (6331) Report abuse
Haha.....so speaks Mr Innocent

BTW.....Talking of people who have been banned you never did tell us why Mac got the chop

One rule for one person, another for everyone else eh?

Did Mac ever bully the ladies Leccy?

Maybe we should ask Ena??

Posted by: basil brush (10144) Report abuse
I don't bully ladies leccymac, the only time someone would want to meet me is because I stand up to them and show them up,

Plus I don't go around attacking people who stand up to me, like you and you and your cronies

Basil and flies:

Lot of web sites say it deters flies!

Problem is, just as many dealing with problems of flies on basil!

Maybe it varies with the type of fly?

My own experience:

I have a four foot long wooden trough of mature, (about 12 inches high) basil on my window sill. I cook Italian, so get through it at a rate of knots: I reseed as I harvest, to try and maintain a perpetual supply.

It seems to have no deterrent effect upon flies entering through the open window. (Usually wide open in this weather.)

True, the leaves of the basil are not peppered with holes caused by cabbage worm/ cabbage fly and the likes, as are the lettuce and similar stuff growing alongside.

The basil is starting to succumb however. Two or three holes apparent, and from experience, I know it is in the latter half of Summer that the basil gets eaten. It will be shredded by late September!

" I don't bully females" basil says....er excuse me have you noticed jathbee & I are females are are constantly bullied by you.! Liar again,you wouldn't know the truth if it slapped you in your mush !

Posted by: Stardelta (6331) Report abuse
Amazing how everyone suddenly takes the moral high ground.

Let he (or she) who is without sin....etc....etc....etc.

If you don’t like Baz the answer is simple......ignore him!!

"Communicate, now album. members complaining "

Anybody can leave a comment on album under any name they wish. It does not mean to say that the name of the person, is the actual person. You should know that?

I'm going to leave one now on the said photo under the name of Needles and Pins. But it's me! Check it out

I am not defending him. I am saying he....

1) Doesn't bother me with his antics, but I don't bother him with mine.
2) That he gives as good as he gets
3) That the people who criticise him are far from innocent themselves.
4) That he has as much right as anyone else to be here and make comment.
5) That he can easily be ignored if you so choose.

Can any of the above be argued?.....I think not.

As for the comments being made elsewhere under his name can you prove to me it's the same person, for all we know it could be you making them. It wouldn't be the first time someone had assumed another name.

When things get rough in life we need to persevere and keep our heads up. Matthews 21 21 use our faith it can move mountains say to your mountain and believe and not doubt and will be.
