    Hey everyone. I am looking for info on organic ways to kill of loads of flys.

    The flys aren't due to the chickens - unseasonable weather seems to have let them bloom like crazy. Not to sure where they are coming from. Anyway, I am afraid to spray the yard with standard pesticides because I don't want to expose my family or my pets to the chemicals.

    Any ideas? Soapy water?

    Thanks. Jay
