And Then There Was One…Until Another Showed Up!

I have spent the last week embroiled in an epic battle! Fighting a seemingly unstoppable enemy. An enemy that appears out of nowhere and replenishes it’s army in the blink of an eye. The situation became so dire I had to call in reinforcements. Who was this formidable adversary? None other than the cunning, despicable and persistent…

HOUSE FLY!!! Oh, don’t be fooled by their small stature and solitary existence, these hairy, flying pests are stronger than they look and secretly work together to acquire dominance.
Fly Army Planning
The Fly Inner Circle strategizing my demise!
At first, it was one annoying fly, buzzing around while I was trying to work or sleep. I ignored it…I’m not about to go chasing around a lone fly. I should have taken a more offensive stance, that elusive creature was just the scout!

Soon, the lone fly wasn’t content buzzing behind the blinds or near the overhead lamp no, it insisted on buzzing right near my face! No matter where I was or what I was doing there was a big, black, ugly thing trying to land on me.

It was time for me to take action! I went to my hidden room and found the proper weapon then went to war! It wasn't long before I discovered the evil plot hatched by the secret fly army…every time I took out the invasive bug tangled in my hair another was ready to take it’s place! They were all in it together!

Swat
I'll get you my pretties...I mean uglies
This battalion of loathsome insects had devised a strategy to take over my home by over whelming me with their endless supply of henchmen! I was having none of that! I decided it was time to take out headquarters, except I had no clue where it might be.

I scrubbed and disinfected every nook and cranny in my house, all the while killing each pesky troop that had taken over for it's fallen comrade. Satisfied I had cleansed my dwelling, I began to relax.
Fly Fight
I have mad skills!!!
Then it happened…I was pleasantly reading…went to take a sip of wine…brought the glass up to my lips…caught something in my peripheral and let out a cry of frustration. There floating in my nearly full glass of Shiraz was one of those disgusting beasts!

This was the last straw…no one makes me dump out wine!
I am a "let bygones be bygones" type of gal, I only killed those flies after they invaded my personal space; I wasn’t out to massacre the entire force. Now however, no more mister nice guy. I called in the big guns.
The Weinator
No one messes with The Weinator!
The Weinator came in and did what she does best…took care of business! In no time, there was not a fly in sight! No buzzing to be heard! No signs of an impending invasion! I swung around to thank The Weinator but she was gone.

The battle had been won but the war is still there lurking at every window and door.
Don’t worry about me though, I am protected against a repeat occurrence. Military Me has been activated and is ensuring the security of my perimeter.

Here’s hoping everyone has a pest free summer!

    1. We've been working on The Weinator signal...it turns out you can't buy custom spotlights at Walmart. Who knew?

    1. Oh no! Don't remind me about Mr Mosquito! Luckily, he hasn't showed up around here yet.

  4. You always make me chuckle. ^_^

    No problems with houseflies... yet. But I live in Wisconsin, which is close enough Minnesota that their eagle-sized mosquitoes invade every Summer, so I imagine they'll make their way over here soon enough. -_-

  5. Great post! :D

    It was full of cuteness (your wonderful images); brimming with horror (damn dreaded houseflies); and tinged with sinfulness (having to throw away a good glass of wine).

  6. This is a much better plan than just running and screaming...
