There are a lot of flies in our house this summer. It is rather difficult to kill them by hand. Yet I don't want to use other tactics. Normally I don't kill a fly but the circumstances made me one. I want to know why it is so hard to kill them. So I can improve my tactics using my bare hands only. But where must I ask? On the biology site maybe?

    I'm not sure there is an applicable stack exchange site for that. Lifehacks can suggest ways to eliminate and drive away flies but I'm not sure "why is fly killing hard" is quite on topic anywhere. The biggest problem is that we have no idea what and how you're trying.

As you discovered, the question was already asked on Lifehacks Stack Exchange: Is there any way to kill a fly without a flyswatter?. I guess it falls under
