I’m wondering some things about the common fly - namely, why do they seem to prefer attempting landing on something live versus dead? Okay I’m actually talking about me, versus the trash bin I sit near, when I scrub things outside at work (at a kitchen). Why do the flies come and buzz around me, who will swat at them and not let them land, instead of just going to the dead food that will not swat them or mind their eggs being laid etc.?
Do I smell more interesting or something? Is it worth the trouble to them to bother live things?
Another thing, do they get tired? Sometimes when I’m walking I’ll encounter one or several, and they’ll fly along with me, sometimes even catching up to me after I break into a run for a bit to get away from them - and it just amazes me how long they’ll keep up with me.
Last one - when will we eradicate these goddamn creatures once and for all?
