So, some of you may remember my Lord of the Flies post where I spared the life of an aggravating dragon fly to keep my karma clear.
Fast forward a few weeks.
Would someone please explain to me why my house is now a haven for tiny little gnat-fly things that have embedded themselves into my kitchen sink and garbage can.
Actually, I know what happened. We recently switched garbage companies and had a lapse in services for about a week or so. During that time, as you can imagine, our trash piled up in our garage. We have an infant. An infant who poops and pees a ridiculous amount every single day. I am not very green (embarrassed to say) and still use disposables. One week of disposable diapers stewing in a hot garage = the 7th plague of flies in my house. God has poured out his wrath, and I'm suffering. Immensly.
We need help.
Joe bought some sticky fly paper yesterday, but how the heck am I supposed to catch these things when 1) they're quicker than Speedy Gonzalez and 2) I'm slower than molasses? It's quite comical with me standing by my kitchen sink just flailing this sticky paper back and forth while the flies fly around laughing at me. Picture it.
Any suggestions on how to get rid of these things? I can't help but feel a little trashy right now (no pun intended, or maybe a pun is intended, it's hard to say - I can't think clearly with flies in my eyes).
