Big Flies in Home
We have a question from a resident asking what she can do about a fly issue in her home. Do you have a remedy to get rid of them?

It would be very helpful to know what kind fly she is seeing in her house. Please ask her to collect 6 of them and send them to me.
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
