The number one cause of death on my Fortress is: attack by flying insects.
As they don't activate the Cage Traps, because they don't touch the ground, which are the possible ways to deal with this frequent menace?
Version: 0.50 (Steam).
What has been tried so far:
- Order squads to kill the insects: they kill the insects easily because they are armored, armed, and well-trained. But they can only reach the insects after some of my civil dwaves were already killed by just one insect, so some live loss is inevitable this way, and I lose important skilled dwarves this way;
- Call the civil dwarves to an emergency burrow: they are able to hide deep in the fortress, were the insects don't reach easily, but, like item 1, they take some time to get there and some live loss is inevitable this way.
