Just horseflies. That's funny.

Seriously though, those things are almost my least favorite pest besides mice and spiders. And snakes. Ok and mosquitoes. Welll I don't like bees either, but we kind of need those so I tolerate them since I like fruits, vegetables, and flowers. But what do HORSEFLIES give back to the community? They contribute to yard-rage 'round my way.

if you get avon skin so soft bath oil and put some of that on you in the summer, bugs won't come near you. it doesn't smell too bad but the insects can't stand it! bees are the worst to me. I like honey, but yellow jackets don't provide honey. horseflies are bad because they are so persistent.
