The flies are horrible! Have been for a couple weeks, ever since the farmer neighbor saturated the field in front of the house with manure!
I’ve tried a few things to try and get rid of them, but nothing really seems to help. I’ve tried burning incense and citronella, spraying a vinegar/dish soap concoction…It seems to work for a little bit, but not for long. I ran out of citronella, so I need to get more. There’s just so many, I’d probably have to spend a fortune to really be able to do anything about it. For the most part, I stay in the house. Or in the pool.
They swarm, making it nearly impossible to sit on the deck from about 11am until after the sun sets/it gets dark.
I’m sure some of it has to do with how incredibly dry it’s been – but the neighbor spraying the field didn’t help any.
