How do you get rid of flies?
There is nothing in our backyard to attract so many flies. We clean up after our pets 3 times a day. There isn't any food either. Our neighbors have dogs and I am wondering if that is why there are so many. I don't want to use fly strips because they are unattractive. Any recommendations? I am at my wits end!
I haven't tried this yet, but I've heard if you plant a pot of basil it will keep the flies away. You can use the herb in your cooking and get rid of the flies at the same time. Purple basil is available and you can use it as an ornamental plant too.
wash your backyard after cleaning up your pets poo or urine. I heard hydropyroxide helps to keep off flies. Read it in some articles from a pet magazine..
Wish I had an answer! Going to try the basil Barbara suggested and follow this great question! In the meantime, you have my empathy. They can bombard the cleanest of places! Yuck! And those strips? You are kind to call them "unattractive." How about just plain gross?!
This winter did not kill that many bugs, so you may see more of them this year. Maybe you can try buying some fly trap bags and hang them around in your yard.
