All the flying ones seem to be brain dead and no matter how often you swat them they still circle your head grrrr.

Daddylong legs, horrible things, like flying spiders.

Spiders in general

Midges that bite me and leave big swollen lumps

Wasps, one reason I dislike eating outside.

Moths DEFINATELY ...

Goes way back to the sixties when I woke up in France and a moth had got into my nightie...
Hate the dam things

I can just about tolerate any insect during day light hours but nope they're not sticking around after dark :/

I detest flies, especially when one gets inside the house.

We have security cameras everywhere here, and at night, its amazing to watch . There are lots of bats, but the amount of 'flying' spiders is unbelievable. They are most prominent over our front gates, but also up in the tall barn. They all have attachment to long lengths of cobweb too. But they never seem to get tangled up. I watch them for about 20mins before I go to sleep (much to the annoyance of himself) ..lol

Those bloody daddy long leg spider things, they snuggle up in the corner of my bathroom leaving trailing web everywhere that I walk into in the dark.
They ruin my middle of the night tinkle....

I hate moths. I've not smelt the wonderful aroma of mothballs for many years. Does anyone still use them?

We found quite a lot of mothballs in this other house we have bought Mr Q........ they had turned brown and didnt smell at all like they used to. I think they were over 75 years old.... they upset my asthma. Nasty little things.

I don't like flies, one got in my house yesterday,it was buzzing around me all the time.
I chased it all over the house using a spray, I finally got it.

When I used to work permanent nights in a Residential home, it was so hot we had to open the kitchen window upstairs. The moths would soon come, they were horrible, one type had the biggest eyes I have seen, we quickly shut the window.

I hate flies as I associate them with filth and disease but I don't like any of the other flying insects which annoy me either. I'm not very keen on non flying insects either.

If a fly gets in, I won't stop till I get it out. I don't like the sprays, so I usually trap it in a room that has an outside door or a large window, it eventually flies in the right direction.

Flying ants. Don't like them much.

Have you ever tie one of those fly zapping tennis raquet thingies? Great fun, but a bit useless as half the time they only stun the fly and daddylonglegs do their usual things and leave a leg or 2 behind.

I love those electric fly zappers with the black light that attracts them to it.
Suddenly there's a fizz and a bang as the juicy fly gets 10,000 volts!
That or a venus fly trap, now they're my kind of zapper....

i help flies find their own way out of the house.

flies always fly to the light so in the lounge i open the patio door about 15inch, and pull the curtains across until they come in line with the open door...same with windows.

I think they are only in the US

There is a family of butterflies called Hedylidae known as the "American moth-butterflies" that sleeps during the day and is active at night.
