    Default Flies in the bathroom

    Right, for ages now, about two weeks ish we've been getting tiny little flies in the bathroom and I can't work out where they're coming from.

    Everytime I go up there I squash them all, and they let me so they're dopey flies, but when I go back there's more of the buggers. I must squash in excess of twenty a day.

    Any ideas 'cos they're getting on my nerves now.

    Do you leave a light on in there, which is attracting them all to that area?

    .. and I know this sounds stupid, but are you sure they're not something like fruit flies? Could your son have left/dropped some fruit or something that's dropped down a crack.

    They have hatched in your bathroom from eggs layed and there's not much you can do apart from keeping up the good squashing work or spraying occasionally.

    You're not the first to suggest Rat might have stuffed something somewhere too Breezy. I had a new shower fitted last week so the room was emptied and I gave it a thorough clean and didn't spot anything untoward.

    One of the buggers bit me as I squashed it today, my hand is really itchy now.

    I keep meaning spray a tin of fly spray around before I go to bed but haven't done 'cos I'm not sure where they're coming from. Is it true that that kills eggs as well as flies. The thought of eggs being around makes me feel queasy.

    They're probably hanging around that big shit you had in October!

    Do you have personal knowledge of that event, and isn't it something you should have shared with us before December?

    Where you get this imaginary information about people you've never met is a mystery that you should share.

    It's quite possible that you have a plant around the house Ck, sometimes they may hatch around it.

    My bowel movements are not up for discussion.



    My neighbour called round earlier and he said he's been getting those little flies and so has his girlfriend who lives about twenty houses away.

    We don't know what they are or why they are here but I'm just happy that it's not just me. Means I'm not unclean after all.
