mama can take down the ninja

There is an intruder in my house.

Since Sunday (at least) - my home has been home to the world's most obnoxious houseguest EVER. Always hovering, never leaving me alone... I just cannot seem to convince this guest to vacate the premises.

It's a fly.

Not even a big one - just a little bitty housefly.

But I swear - it has ninja skillz. It's uncatchable, unswattable - and for a few hours every day - undetectable. Just to lure me into a false sense of security - I forget temporarily that my house has been overtaken by a mutant insect, and then when I least expect it... BAM. Stinking bug lands on my forehead. Or my lunch. Yum.

I'm not sure how to handle it, as it's a wee bit chilly to just leave the windows and doors flung wide open (not to mention that such an act might be construed as an open invitation and then I could find a full-on convention of ninja insects taking over my living room...)

All I can say is - Mama has had it. Beware, ninja fly.

I had one of those and this worked for me. Your fly might be smarter than mine, but I left out a paper plate with a thin layer of honey on it and it flew right in but couldn't get out. Haven't had one since. Its worth a try.
