I Hate Flies

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 630 People

    I can admittedly tolerate the occasional gnat,

    but houseflies are just an oversized nuisance. Just now, I was reading on my computer when a housefly suddenly dive bombs my head out of nowhere. I chased it down and hit the ****** in midair with a swatter, but haven't seen it since. As long as it stays the hell away from my...

    Flies, Ick

    They get on your food, the throw up on it, they puke on it. When you're trying to eat, they buzz around and drive you crazy. In the summer there's tons of them. It's impossible to be rid of them all, even if you go hunting with a fly swatter. When I was a kid I use to go...

    Mass Murder

    Every year, for a couple of days, I have a swarm of flies that comes into my apartment ... on the 20th floor!  This year was the worst as I had dozens and dozens of them at my livingroom window.  You would think they'd go into the kitchen or bathroom, where they'd find organics...

    Some other trolling fly behaviour 1.

    Not being able to spray it. Because the beast is sitting on top of the fly spray! 2: Go to get fly spray. It disappears. Why does that happen every single time?! 3: Get fly spray and wait for it to return. Wait for a whole for it it to return. It doesn't. It comes back when your...

    The ones that spin around dying on your window

    sill for days on end are annoying as hell. It's all quiet when suddenly you will get a 'zzz' once or twice a day until it dies. Why do flies insist on always dying on window sills, but never actually EXIT them?! They struggle to exit them, but can easily enter them.

    No Flies On Me

    Got home from work, late, but it was still a sweet evening so sat on my back step and smoked my first spliff of the day, staring at the back garden. The swifts were picking food from the thermals, beaks gaping, sucking in insect larvae.  When I pointed this behaviour out to my...

    How Many...

    Y'know, I don't like them, but they're here. What I wonder is how many people can catch them with thier bare hands while they fly around... I can... I usually catch them and let them out my window. It reminds me of when Robert Vaughn's character Lee would catch them in The...

    I Hate Flies

    I hate flies, especially during spring and summer time. I can't explain why but when I think about it I really don't need to explain at all. If YOU have a brain of some sort then it's obvious why I don't like flies. Yup And this was another very interesting story from a very...

    My hate is very much rooted in the fact they fly directly at my face when I am in an already short-tempered mood and find it hilarious then to keep trying to make it to my face as I swat them. I hate their buzzing I hate the fact the crawl over food and surfaces and are...

    I am perfectly willing to share the room with a

    fly, as long as he is patrolling that portion of the room I don’t occupy. But if he starts that smart-*** fly ****, buzzing my head and repeatedly landing on my arm, he is engaging in high-risk behavior .

    Like Something Out Of The Exorcist Movie

    The other day I found more than 40 flies all dead and sticking to the crystal window on the tv room. It really freaked me out cause this area is always clean, so im guessing it has to do with the tropical weather down here? I kill them and like 10 come by it's so frustrating !

    Fly Hatred

    I think I have an irrational hatred for flies, in particular the big black ones/blue bottles. As soon as one enters the room I am in I go into an angry frenzy to get rid. I cannot and will not rest until it is crushed dead or out the window, I'm not fussy which. The worst thing...

    Flies are very annoying. However, in my opinion, they are much easier to kill than mosquitoes.
