Invasion of the flies
Last week during one of the last really hot days of summer (well, more like early fall) we came home to find ourselves in a horror movie. As soon as we walked in the door we noticed a faint buzzing sound coming from upstairs. Reluctantly we walked up the stairs while the buzz increased in volume, stepped into the kitchen and were faced with hundreds and hundreds of flies covering our windows.
Gross! I immediately armed myself with a swatter while D ran back down to get the vacuum cleaner. Then we started operation fly extinction. It took us a good 40 minutes to get them all and this is how our vacuum cleaner looked inside.
Yum-yum! Fly guts galore! Our house is a barn conversion and used to be a horse stable up until about a year and a half ago so the flies were probably looking for some horseys, but instead they ended up meeting Mr. Vacuum and Mrs. Swatter. Hah!
