Bringing in the wood bins also brings in the flies that have hidden in the logs for the winter. As they enjoy the (relative?) warmth of the cabin, they come out of hibernation, and inevitably head for the upstairs windows to escape.
In an effort to control the incessant buzzing and build-up of dessicated remains, I have invented the flysucker 2000. It cost all of $7 from Home Depot. A piece of ten foot electrical conduit jammed onto the end of the vacuum hose. It doesn’t have much power, you have to get right on top of the fly to trap it, but it is satisfying, and I suspect a little painters tape to seal the hose to the vacuum for better suction would only improve matters.
