My guess is the majority of them get swept upward and dispersed by the wind.
If you visit rural areas in some parts of the USA on a windy day, you will see gulls or other birds patrolling above fields.
Their movements while flying suggest they are catching insects, many of which are probably flies.
they take shelter in the trees and pray they don't get blown away
Basically if it is too cold the house flies can no longer fly since their wings are frozen and they end up dead. But when it is windy I suppose they die too
They land on the dog poo and bury their feet deep in. This way they don't blow away.
Might not be true, but it sounds convincing.
