I am wondering what is a natural way, or just a way that avoids the
exterminator in getting rid of the biting flies. These things are like
something from a horror film, they have no fear of me! They will chase me
around the house and I have to shut a door in a room and do battle with them
until I kill them. I have gotten good and managed to keep them out of the
house, but when I am working on my yard during the day, I am getting bit and
have little lumps like misquito bumps.
Anyway, I am wondering if anyone knows of anything that will repel them
(like those citrus candles for the misquitoes) or if I need one of those
machines that kill bugs in the air-something to make this menace go away!
By the way, the lot next to me is completely unattended to. There is no
house, but the grass, et. grows so high, I cannot see my neighbor two doors
down, and knowing nothing about flies (I never had to deal with biting ones
before) I am not sure if even if I spray or whatever, I won't still have the
problem because of the unattended yard next door.
If it seems nothing can be done, but to call an exterminator, please do say
so and what they did if you don't mind.
Any informative responses, links appreciated.
