I just went on war!
My home is being attacked my houseflies..
Yuck?!? I know!
I am a clean messy person. Like a true germaphobe but a true careless messy person too…
There is a sharp juxtaposition in my personality.
My possessions are squeaky clean and with layers of disinfectants but scattered everywhere. My siblings would say one day if we keep looking we might find a baby elephant hiding in your room.
Well. Back to the fly story
So few days back I saw a herd of flied touring my home and I had no clue how they got there. I was shocked! and lost faith in disinfectants.
There must be like 4 to 5 of them.
I opened all the windows and tried to chase them away bit they were so in love with my home that I felt they might actually chase me out of my own freaking window!
Now I don’t use pesticides as they are very toxic. So I burned bakhoor (incense).
But nothing happened. They were enjoying the nice fragrant smokey feel of my home for which I actually hated myself.
It was a plan to kill them not to throw a dance party.
I even used the combination. Opened window, burned bakhoor and ran after them ..all at once. It was exhausting.
Then I saw an electrical racket shaped mosquito/fly swatter that I got from Pakistan on my last trip, because mosquitoes there were literally BATS!
So I just got a powerful electrical racket for myself too. Because once upon a time I actually played badminton. It was a family thing. So why not put skill to some use.
This super-racket had been in coma for months.
So I charged..and charged..and charged it until some current started running trough its net that I figured only when I was able to kill a fly after thousands of failed attempts.
Then the battle begun.
Windows, bakhoor, super-racket and me against flies!
And guess who won??
After struggling for hours, I finally devised a method.
Wait for flies to sit somewhere.
Don’t go after all of them, focus on 2 3 in close proximity.
Keep an eye on them and pretend you aren’t bothered by there presence.
Let them get comfortable. They shouldn’t see face of a predator on your neck.
Act sweet but ignore, where a pink bow on your head (please don’t)
Then casually hold the racket and continue with your work. You want them to forget it’s a killing machine.
You want to give them an impression that you just have a very unique hand.
Now slowly amble towards one of them gently raising the racket.
When close enough just freeze for at least 2 minutes …this is an important part. Fly must believe that you are a statue.
Now lift your racket in super slo-mo and slowly place its net on the fly.
When it will try to escape it will hit the net and get electrocuted.
Oh don’t forget to keep the electric shock button pressed the whole time or the entire operation will fail. And your patience too..
I have electrocuted 3 flies so far. Waiting for the rest to sit somewhere.
No fly will dare to invade my home again!
