‘Just kill me!’ begs massive fly


Massive flies, the size of golf balls, are hauling their sizeable bulk into our homes as summer draws to a close, and asking us to do the right thing.

Bluebottle, Peter Thape (5 weeks) has flown into a house and sat on the kitchen windowsill, waiting for the axe to fall.

Thape admitted that he usually likes to tease the householder into getting within a millimetre of him before flying off, but accepts that he’s had a good innings.

‘My work here is done. I’ve fathered plenty – you’ll see them in the spring,’ said fly, Thape.

‘It’s been brilliant, and thanks for all the fish,’ added fly, Thape.
