How To Swat A Fly

I don’t know too many people who don’t think flies are annoying.  I think I have a pretty standard opinion of them…they’re stupid.  My wife though, absolutely hates them.  We were sitting in a restaurant recently and she went so far as to say that she likes them even less than popping (knuckles…which is unfortunately a habit of mine), which was saying something. 

Then I ran into this video all about flies.  Apparently, they are the “Ferrari’s of the insect world.”  Who knew?  There were some cool super slow motion shots but what I especially appreciated were the tips they gave for swatting flies:

  1. Resist in-flight attacks
  2. Sneak up slowly before the final flick
  3. Approach from behind
  4. Use a swatter than blends in with the background
  5. Aim your swat beyond the insect

Now I can really be the man of the house and conquer those pesky little guys.  You’re going down flies.
