Thunderfly in my LCD

It was an interesting moment when I went to squash the Thunderfly on my LCD, only to find that the little critter was BEHIND the display. Now the curse-ed thing has gone and died right in the middle of it and won't budge.

A google search shows I'm not alone with this problem, but there isn't much I can do. I don't want to take the display apart because I don't even know if I can access the corpse, and tapping the screen isn't helping.

Even worse, now there's one inside my laptop's display too. Apparently they are attracted by the light so I've turned on a lamp on my desk to try and keep them away.

  1. I managed to get rid of one by squeezing and killing it as it entered the black edge of my screen. So it's still there but not visible which is better than the look of 5 dead pixels.
