    I work from home and am sitting here with 2 flies driving me absolutely nuts! I have the Sceptor Of Doom (aka the flyswatter) handy, but the only thing they land on is my right arm!

    Oh, but if they would only land on a hard surface.

    Hardly seems worth it for 2 flies, especially since I would not be able to stay in the room (and I don't get off work for another 3 hours).

    My van is parked by my chicks pens and we ALWAYS end up with a fly in the car.... we joke now that it isn't the "car fax" you need, it's the "car fly"!
