  1. We have houseflies right now, I was looking for a spray to kill them in the house without toxic chemicals. It gets to -50F in the winter and 80-85* in the summer with sunshine 24 hrs a day in the summer. Of course houseflies survive up here, they thaw in the spring…

  2. I see them breeding on my window right now! How the Heck do they survive the winter? Seen them inside and outside!
