Need info on how to rid deluges of kitchen sink flies every Summer. They come in swarms and I don't know where they come from. The windows over the double sinks do not open,and the kitchen door is screened tight. This was the third Summer and they seemed to have increased to three separate swarms, April, June and August lasting until November. What should I do for the next year? I appreciate anything you can help me do so I can get a jump on them for the next Summer. Thanks Thanks Thanks. Marilyn J. Stanley
