This happens to me all the time. When I'm locked in battle with a fly, it is normally not on the best conditions, I tend to be equipped with a size
13 shoe in my hand, verus the live, flying insect,
I have managed to catch it within my bare hands, cupped, after trying for a few minutes. But once i accidently smashed one inbetween my fingers it was
pretty gross, so I didn't do that again.
Anyways, after I get a near miss, or if I get an area-of-effect hit, say I miss the fly but come down with massive force with my shoe like millimeters
beside it, the force will push it away from the location violently. To the fly this is the same thing as being attacked, so they goto step 2 of their
survival process. Step 1 is evasion.
Step 2 is hiding. Once I get a near hit, those things fly behind the shades, or behind the bed, or desk .. whatever they can hide on. Then its as easy
as locate and smush.
Alternatively, a good way to remove flies from YOUR room, but into the next room, simply turn off all light creating sources in your room, the monitor
and tv included, and turn the brightest lights on outside of your room, and leave the door wide open.
The fly will immediately fly out of the room every single freaking time, you can do a scientific experiment and get these results. They must not be
able to see in the dark, so they fly towards the nearest light source.
