    An update on flymogeddon - the red wine traps weren't working so I switched to lager and mango. 2 seperated traps each had about 20 plus of the fuckers but it didn't even appear to to thin their numbers. Also I opened the cupboard and shit loads more of them flew out. I can't explain this. I decided to go nuclear and get the hoover out. The lazy obnoxious bastards just hover about waiting to get sucked up. I must have hoovered up at least 40 of them. Evertime I clear them I go back in the room and there's more of them. I'm off work with an ear infection at the moment so I'm starting to think the bacteria may have eaten into my brain stem and all of this has been a hallucination. They're in the fucking walls.

    Fire is the only way.

    Spiders can get to fuck. Deport them to all an island is what I say then they can have their own caliphate.
    I've made my peace with them because they keep a lot of nastier crawlies away.

    It's like, yeah, they might play S Club 7 really loud on weeknights and sit outside drinking WKD and say rude but ultimately innocuous things to you when you're coming back from the chippy, but if they move out then the regional drug lord, his harem and firearm collection moves in instead.

    Fruit flies are like the Chernobyl of insect infestations. You can completely neutralise the source of the problem but their influence will be felt tens of thousands of years beyond that. We've still got them at work from an orange peel that got thrown in the paper bin in like June.

    I hate when people use Jumar when they mean ascender. Jumar is a brand name. Why are you all staring at me? I'm not having a go at anyone

    @Decks

    You will wake up in the early hours with a massive craving of sugar and will probably stick to the ceiling.

    Can't you empty a can of spray into the cupboard?

    I open a small hole in the ozone layer with the nuclear strikes I deploy for a single fly.

    Integrate into their society, marry into a political family and destabilise the colony from inside. Eventually elect yourself ruler and move everyone to another house.

    Problem solved.

    That's what the conkers are for innit? Apply some mustard around your anus then slide in about a dozen to be sure.

    @Decks I'm struggling with fruit flies most of the time of year too (when it's not below 10 or so) Killing them is easy enough, getting rid of them altogether appears impossible.
    They seem to be able to survive on any biological matter. I'm almost surprised they've not eaten me.

    Biggest problem for me is I live in an apartment and can't put my leftovers outside while the tiny fuckers always find a way to get to them. Ergo: continuous flysplosions until I can finally let them all freeze to death during winter while I'm at work.

    Fuck sake don't tell me that. I even saw the little bastard in the packet of bananas on Wednesday. Why isn't it common knowledge that letting one in puts a fucking pox on your house until the end of time?

    We've been drinking red wine and the remaining flies have followed us into the living room. I count 6. I think this is the final battle.

    They're addicted to wine after gorging on it.

    The final 6 for now. Give any bin or method of waste disposal you have in your house a quick nudge in the morning and a new wave will emerge to begin the battle anew.

    Weirdly there's been a small outbreak of fruit flies at work today. I blame decks. And brexit.

    They're like a fucking plague. They haven't even evolved fly reflexes. They just sit about waiting to die like "fucking kill me, what the fuck do I care, there'll 17 more of me in 5 minutes"
