Well it's been blamed on the windfarm, the SIC and Orkney's had its name dragged through the mud.

After reading something somewhere on the internet, I'm sorry to say it's none of the above; it's Brexit. The EU simply won't let our British flies in without the correct paperwork so they're having a staycation.

In an attempt to shoehorn in Covid... the flies have also chosen Shetland due to our low case numbers.

Word also has it Boris Johnson has awarded some multi-million pound clean-up contracts to mates fae his school days and the SIC have agreed to pick up the bill.

After trying a number of differet sprays, all ineffective to the point where I might as well hit the flies with the tin.. I found some stuff that might be of use..  It's called RAID and it takes the little buggers out of the air with no problem.

One quick spray around, and less than 10 minutes later, no files....  Mind you, I have no idea (yet) what it does to the wife and cat.  Hope the cat survives..  :roll:

Cats and fly papers are a bad mix...

Despite having the a few papers hung where no cat could ever possibly reach, our very fluffy gentle giant girl somehow managed to get one stuck to her. A looong jump from the top of the fridge to the far end of a windowsill is about the only trajectory possible. Poor wee thing.

It was not pleasant [for either party] completely removing it and the residue which involved a bit of trimming, a lot of washing and, somewhat understandably, some blood (not hers). Never underestimate a cats ability to get absolutely anywhere! I doubt we'll use fly papers ever again and just wheel in some toads on sticks next time.
