    The problem with this weather is you open the windows to let fresh air in but then the house is full of moths and flies that just fly around in circles underneath the light but won't leave the house!

    Anyone else have this problem?

    All the time! Ever since we installed the cat flap, we have flies coming in pretty much constantly (we have to prop it open because my cat can't work out how to use it otherwise). How can they find their way in through a little cat flap, and then not be able to get out through an open door?!

    Flies and moths are attracted to foul odours, so you guys should do more to clean your house/room

    They can pick up odours through the kitchen

    Yes the big ones are indeed scary, its a good thing that they're rare, unless you live in the countryside

    i shooed out 3 flies today. i conducted the way out for the first fly which got out easily; then i closed the window but a few moments later, another came in (i sure hope it wasnt the same one cos im going to judge its intelligence) and shooed that one out, then another came in and shooed that one out too

    Any advice on shooing them out?

    Flies, no.

    Moths, all the time, there is like 4moths in my room right now. At some point you just learn to live with them, until they start flying round smashing into everything, then they can be shooed out. Otherwise I just leave them alone.

    I have never ever understood people's disdain for moths, they're just smaller butterflies? kinda cute.
