Mini infestation of flies at work for the last couple of days. Not the
nicest but I've given myself the job of chief exterminator: I'm quite the
expert at swatting, and yesterday I went out and bought a packet of fly
papers. One of them caught had this little bounty this morning, with the
others a comparable amount. Today we also captured some of them alive thanks
to a tiny fly vacuum someone had brought in. And then we put them in a cup
of hot chocolate, as you do.My record at swatting? 13 in as many minutes. Ace fun.

Could you come and do that with our fleas please? Rentokill were meant to do some exterminating last Friday, but it all went wrong (everyone was at the pub and not the office, so there was no-one there to let the man in).

fly... vacuum? cup?
how did they get into the cup exactly?
(vacuumed them, they died in vacuum, then dumped them in?)

also, did they all float?
I'm amazed. or, something.

it's like a fan with a tube which seals 'em in as the fan sucks 'em. Getting them out took a bit of juggling, that I didn't master, but they were alive if a bit battered when they came out. Then the did the backstroke, or the front crawl, whichever took their fancy, until they drowned. Hours later.
