flies in my house

Asked August 22, 2019, 5:08 PM EDT

How can I get rid of flies coming in my house every day. I had it sprayed last fall and all the flies and ants died and it was fine until about 3 weeks ago I started getting flies in my condo. They die by the next day but I was getting at least 20 per day. Now I am getting over 100. I put moth balls in the garage and didn't have any the next morning, but after being gone all day I have at least 50 more dead ones. How can I get rid of them? I don't keep a dirty house!

We should probably start with Identifying your littel fly friends. Please send me 6 or so.

To preserve and protect fragile specimens, it’s always best to submit insects in a small leak proof vial filled with rubbing alcohol or vinegar (the postal service prefers you send them in vinegar). Place the vial in a small zip-lock baggie, then in a small box or mailing tube and mail to
