Question:This year is the worse year
we have seen for this fly in 17 years.When it is hot and
dry you cannot go out to work the gardens unless you have
plenty of spray and a hooded net jacket. Is there anything
we can do to kill, catch or dispose of these flies? Thank
you for any advise.
Answer: I knew I saved this picture for
some reason. This is one person’s solution to deer
flies. Not very fashionable, but deer flies tend to land
on the back of their victim’s heads. Hence a Solo
cup attached to the hat, with fly paper or other sticky
material on the cup to trap the flies.
