House Flies seeminglyh impervious to fly spry

Adrian from Papamoa Beach

Have other people noticed that over the past few weeks the way house flies seem a great deal harder to kill with usual house sprays than they were when the temperatures were higher.

Does anyone have any advice on which sprays work best? I have been using Mortein Power Gard, and Fast Knockdown to little avail, The same flies just fly about till I spray them about four or five times, and directly on them!

Mauao base track

Communications from Tauranga City Council

UPDATE 11:55am: the base track is now open. Thank you for your cooperation while this was resolved.


UPDATE 10:30am: The ship is now being towed. We will update you once the base tack is open. Thank you for your patience.


The Mauao base track is currently closed.

This is a precautionary measure following advice from the Harbour Master regarding the grounded ship. We hope to open the track up again mid-late morning. We’ll keep you posted.

I hope someone can help me. I was parked in the carpark at Bayfair mall behind farmers near where the buses come in. I had backed out of my park and was ready to drive off when I saw a vehicle start to back out about 4 parks down from me. I beeped my horn several times but the vehicle kept coming. I then stood fully on my horn but it scraped down the side end of my car. The driver said he was "away with the fairies" and didn't hear my horn. He told his Insurance Co that we were both reversing at the same time which is a lie and I now have to pay half the repair bill. A man in a car parked in front of me saw the whole thing. If you are the man and reading this can you please contact me on 0210440978. Maybe someone mentioned this incident to you. My car is a Honda Accord colour pale blue and the other vehicle was a grey lexus SUV. Unfortunately there are no security cameras operating in that outside carpark. I would be grateful if I can get some proof of this as currently it is his word against mine.
