Flies are icky, nasty little creatures. I would have moved out and made someone pay for a hotel untill it was all better. .. or.. i would have tried anyhow.

How terrible! That's really gross. What are they gonna do about it I wonder? I think that they would need alot of fly swatters to get rid of em!
