Where Did All The Bugs Come From?

I am not sure if it is this weather where we are going from rain and cooler days to hot, sweltering ones, but it seems that the bugs are out in full force. And, I'm not the only one complaining.

Flies are everywhere. Yesterday there were two pesky ones in the phone store. The clerk said they had been there all day. I came home to find a couple had snuck their way in here too.

I have a can of Raid bug spray handy, and just to be on the safe side, I also have a can of Off which I spray on me a couple times a day. Flies are pesky, but mosquitoes can make one sick.

How about you, are bugs bad in your area? If so, what are you doing about it?

I have hornets building a nest under my porch railing. So far, I have given them only stern looks. But I bought some spray and must remember to do the spraying one evening when it's cool and they're lethargic. Since I am a big chicken, this is going to be a problem for me.

I resort to a fly-swatter which will need replacing soon as it has seen a great deal of action.
I dislike sprays of any sort. They always smell dreadful even if the manufacturer tells me that they smell like soft, summer rain or of lemons or any other dubious concoction of flavours.
No, if there is a fly in the house I dance around, swatting.

I am in Minnesota where we have a ridiculous number of mosquitoes. My son-in-law sprays the yard regularly to get rid of them. I react badly to them and am perfectly willing to use chemicals to get rid of the pesky critters.

We live in Florida, so bugs are everywhere here. I hate when the love bugs are around.

Oh, the flies are just terrible, more than usual! I am not sure why they are so bad this year?
