    We are infested with flies!! I swear, there were at least a thousand on the front deck this morning. It was so bizarre.

    I don't think they are from the coop. It's about 50 yards from the house, and there aren't many flies in there.

    I spent the day swatting flies in the house. No joke, I killed 17 today.

    And where exactly do the flies disappear to when you pick up the fly swatter?? [​IMG]

    Ohhh Jess, I know what you mean. We have the same thing going on here. It has been cooler in the evenings, and I swear they are covering the brick on the front of the house. Its stays pretty warm from the afternoon sun. I swatted 20 of those little buggers this afternoon!! And there are MORE in the house! UGH!! COME ON FROST!!!
