we have 2 dogs, and i clean up after them weekly at a minimum. the patio gets
inundated with flies during the warm season, and i se no noticeable difference
if i clean up after the dogs daily. fly strips catch a bunch of flies but
reinforcements are quick to arrive so no real progress is noticable.
i was wondering is an auromatic sprayer like those mosquitos would work, but i
dont really want to continuously fog my backyard and patio with insecticides.
anyone have experience with the commercial fly catchers that supposedly use a
close to surrender here....

will lay eggs in it and damned if I didn't see maggots crawl out.
yes the attractant smells like sh*t. literally.
we got the same problem. I throw sudsy water out on the area to keep down the
but the best is we got one of those containers with a lid and all the dumps go in
there. it doesnt have a tight lid, one of those you step on a peddle and the top
lifts. well on the underside of the lid I put one of those "vapona" no pest
so the flies go to that and are killed. Ingrid
