    Any thoughts on whether hanging fly paper in the front room would reduce their numbers enough that Jasper wouldn't get upset by them every single evening in summer? :confused:

    Yes. It certainly saves my sanity. With a livery stable next door flies come in as soon as I open a door or window. I don't want to breathe in fly sprays so I use fly papers. The downside is that they do look horrible.

    Agreed! I'm hoping to hang a couple at the far edges of the windows where they'll be mostly hidden by the curtains.

    The trick is to hang them in places the flies like to buzz around . Agree they look awful but they are better than the nasty spray stuff

    Does it make a zappy sound when the flies fly into it? I wondered if that could freak Jasper out. I used to have a tennis racket-type one you could swipe them with but it didn't work!

    It makes a ping noise, when we first got it Floyd would look around to see where the noise was coming from but after a few weeks he just ignored it this is our second Summer using it and have to say it was the best £15 I ever spent:)

    We too have an electric zapper it kills them instantly..the fly papers are horrible as the flies can take a day or 2 to die :(

    I've just bought a zapper as I didn't realise they were so cheap.

    I'm just hoping Harri and I get used to the sound of it zapping a fly as at the moment we are both jumping every time!

    The fly paper has worked for us... inasmuch as we've had hardly any flies from the moment I ordered it! Though after Kara's comments, I'm wondering what the best way is to euthanase them without making a horrible mess...

    The one I used was impregnated with a poison so they died very quickly.
