  • Strange Goings On

    Folkes this is a serious post.

    Over the last few days I have been going out in a morning to find there is dead greenfly all over the outside of the car.

    I have washed them off and the next morning same again.

    Might just be worth mentioning that I cleaned the car at the weekend and for some strange reason there seems to be static all over the car. I can feel the static field over the car and the greenfly looks like they have been frazzled. lol.

    Just wondering if it could be the car wash solution that Im using as its never happened before.

    As mentioned very strange goings on.

    Serious posts please.

    Cheers.

    Would then using an anti-static sealent (CG BLacklight springs to mind) cancel this effect out? No dead flys then?

    Or.. Is it that condensation appears on the paintwork over night then the flys are out and when they land on the car they simply drowned in the moisture?

      If I was a betting person I would go with the latter as I have been using the same shampoo for a while now but its only recently that this has been happenning.

          Weird things can happen - there was a thing where people noticed flies were landing on the Burg chequers, think we blamed the smell of the glue possibly attracting them to it

                  I don't get them inside.

                  Maybe MattHVXR can park his car next to mine when I clean it, so any flies that try to get to mine, get zapped by his

                      Call the FBI and ask for Mulder or Scully ? sorry couldnt resist that

                      Flys or bugs always get attracted to a nice clean car

                      Get a pic up

                        Should see how much static you can build up to go after bigger game, wasps perhaps. Just make sure you stop when birds start falling out of the sky lol.
