    Flies.

    Don't even try to tell me "it's a bad year for flies" or "you live surrounded by cornfields". It's past that.

    Unlivable. Literally a CARPET of flies on an entire level, smothering the staircase to the second level, which has a slightly lighter carpeting of them. The entire main level has to be done daily, with the windowsills - because there are hundreds of them.

    2 weeks before I moved in, a cleaning lady came in daily and sprayed bug spray and vacuumed. I've done it every other day for almost 7 weeks now. The guy that came in and put plastic on the windows, and put in new (trim of some kind, 'cause they thought they were getting in from the ?soffets?) - sprayed and vacuumed.

    WTF, guys? I keep asking my landlord if he saw everybody move out after the last tenants. I'm thinking a dead body in the walls somewhere upstairs?

    You should try cleaning your place.

    I'm a freezing cold Canadian, with a beer belly. And a shitload of flies.

    Where are my pest control guys?

    Yes, flies often congregate in very clean places. Rats and roaches love clean places, too.

    *sigh*

    I don't know what to tell you. I keep a clean house - this house LOOKS immaculate. The infestation was here before I moved in. We first thought it was just because the house had sat vacant for 4 months.

    Think what you want............but when you're done being a cunt - any insight would be great. :hat:

    I bitched about a ladybug infestation there.

    I feel foolish now. That was just a few bugs, in comparison.

    Your dead body in the walls theory may not be far off. Flies don't just grow from nothing and they don't live where there isn't a food source. There's got to be something organic somewhere in the house. Have you been in the basement or attic? Are there any smells like decaying flesh or garbage?

    Caulk your windows and door.

    And clean your house.

    I was thinking the same thing. Plus the life span of a fly isn't that long so she has several generations of flies in her home...so gross!

    To me, whatever's attracting the flies is probably grosser than the actual flies. Oh and baby flies are maggots so they're probably crawling around in there too.
