    I’ve seen horseflies. They have piercing mouth parts and probably hurt.

    Been bitten by horeseflies. They do have those parts, and the bite can hurt. Kinda takes all the guilt out of squishing them; live and let live only goes so far. It doesn’t unbite you, but the squish is the ultimate revenge.

    I can attest to that, you will surely know when you get bitten. They don’t call them horseflies for nothing.

    The question is: it’s better being bitten by a big horsefly or hit by Calvin’s gun?

    Deer flies can be painful, too.

    Agreed! Had my first encounter with those little nasties a few years back in Wisconsin.

    As soon as he saw the horsefly, Calvin darted into the house, darted up the stairs, darted back outside, and darted over to Mom.

    House fly………. deer fly…………. horse fly………….

    Wait until you’ve seen an elephant fly.

    Yes he darted with his dart gun, as young heroes do. But he is still learning that no good deed goes unpunished.

    And bad deeds? Foil Rosalyn darts upstairs to deliver message.

    There are buffalo gnats in parts of arkansas. Hurts and my ring finger was so swollen I had to go to the dr. Was afraid I might have my ring cut off.

    I wonder if he’s trying to trap the horsefly alive with the suction cup!
