    ...And funny!!!! I was just out in the garage looking at my Cornish roasters chicks. They were pretty stinky the other day and the flies had found them. I put up some sticky strips to get ride of them. I couldn't stop laughing just now because two of the flies who were stuck were having a race. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!!! BBBZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!

    I know, it doesn't take a lot to entertain me....[​IMG]

    I try to ignore my fly strips, they're gross. My BF, however, gets all emotional when he sees those poor little disease carrying nasties struggling for freedom. Instead of seeing flies on the fly strips, I now see little pieces of t.p. where he's squished them to put them out of their misery.

    I can't use those around here because I am not coordinated enough to stay out of them!!Last year I hung them everywhere near my chicken coop and in my shed and I can't count the number of times I had them stuck in my hair!! They are pretty good for the smaller flies too!!
