Am i the only person who thinks house flies are psychic and have the power of invisibility. a split second before you squat one, they fly off cos they know its coming, then they become invisible for several seconds. that is why you cannot see them and then suddenly, there they are, like magic.

Tip: Did you know that flies always take off backwards. It might help. Smile Perhaps they think they are going BACK to the future. Tongue

I think I read somewhere too that as you go to squat one the air is compressed and blows them out of the way.

Use a fly swatter that has small holes, thus you don't get the problem SlowSong said.

Which is why fly swats are full of holes. Smile Or do they just shrink and go through the holes

That was my former flatmates preferred method, until he set fire to me while caught up in the chase.... ( true story )

I had an annoying little fly in my bedroom two nights ago, ended up chasing the little sod around with a taut rolled up tea towel, i got him in the end Smile

I just grab them with 2 fingers in mid air. Be one with the fly....

It's because to a fly, you are a large clumsy lumbering animal with all the grace and speed of a house brick.

I find a nice thick elastic band to be the most effective. Cut it so it's not a loop and you can get them before they even think they may be in danger!
