Ok, Iíve had a strange observation about flies (you basic house fly) in Colorado. Iíve lived all over this country and this is the first place where I can regularly kill flies with my bare hands. No swatter required. So, are Colorado flies slow? Stupid? Both?

Is cheating to use hands.
You are supposed to get them with a flick of your tongue.

It's the altitude. They can't fly as fast as at sea level. ;-)

You’re faster. Less drag when you swat.

Plenty of flies, and not just house flies. Check out garbage dumps, roadkill, or dog poops left lying around if you donít believe me.

Deer flies, stable flies, horseflies...

Flies probably need water like other creatures do. If they are inside, deprive them by closing toilet lids and wiping sinks dry. Then when they are weak, WHAP with the swatter.

Someone is going to post, “First world problem.”
