Deer Flies
« on: May 20, 2023, 09:45:43 pm »
I just spent 30 minutes in my breezeway shooting deer flies with my Bug-A-Salt. I started just at sunset until it started to get dark. I started putting the dead ones in a pile where one of my local lizards hunts. They are very good at catching flies right out of the air. The deer flies kept coming in. Several times I had to shoot my own feet to get them. A lot of them did not land off of the breezeway cement so I couldn?t find them. Probably half of them.
By my count there are about 50 deer flies and one green fly in the picture.
Here is a picture of the Bug-A-Salt. I kill a lot of flies of all different types with it.

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

I have suddenly been seeing those things everywhere, they must be very popular.

With that many flies, you'll have a lizard tamed in no time!  :cheesy:
I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.
