    Are the flies especially bad this year?

    Or is it just me?

    I find that a weekly shower markedly reduces the swarms.

    Noticed that too starting around last weekend. I heard someone saying something about insects of all sorts being worse because of fewer ground freezes, or some $#@!. Dunno much about insects.

    Yep, while women complained about the low-low temps of 58 degrees, our bug masters were raising massive armies. combine that with what should be a decently moist summer, white people be screamin'...

    wife and I were just talking about this. We've killed about 10 in the house, and I stood on the back porch and killed them until I got tired of it and it didn't seem to make a difference.

    Why do you have lions dear sir?

    I simply ask you to set them free...if they come back it was meant to be...if not...then you are a murderer of endangered species and should be locked up...unless you make a mean Lion brisket...then you are an artist and escape public opinion...because $#@! them really...invite?

    Ha, I did this on the back porch too. I must have killed 15 or so within about 5 minutes. Felt like a cross between a ninja and Ted Bundy.

    You have flies because you had maggots. You have something dead or rotting nearby.

    Can't leave my door to the backyard open without a swarm hitting up my house. All insects are worse right now. When ever we leave the house, we have to swat away about 20 mosquitos. Moths are pounding our windows at night. I sprayed the yard and outside of the house a week ago and it did nothing to get the bugs away. We're $#@!ed. Stock up on spiders.

    this works really well though i'd keep it outside and at least 10 feet away from where people are going to be hanging out. it's non-toxic but stinks. we go through probably 3 bags every summer- by the end of your first bag literally 2/3 of the bag will be full of dead flies. at least 500 or so flies in there. it's gross but awesome.

    thanks professor. that's why i asked if it was just me. it apparently isn't. i mean, i've walked my yard and they ain't no bodies. ain't no cats $#@!ting in the sandbox. there are a few beer cans outside, but no rotting meat. probably need to clear out the beer cans though. could be part of the problem. but man.

    Thanks for the tip, will pick some up tonight. I have chickens and goats, fortunately the bajillion flies at my house hang out in their areas and land on them / eat their crap.

    I have used that before and it does stink to high heaven. They make a huge one for stables. Holds 30k flies.
