    Thanks.
    What do you do about preventing flies? Hubby can not stand the chemical sprays.

    Screens for the windows. Or an ultra-violet lamp that attracts them and zaps them.

    Wife would like window screens on our windows but the problem is flies will still keep getting in. They fly in when the garage door is open or the front or back doors.

    You're right, of course. But then the UV trap gets them. We bought one for our bedroom on our last visit, and it worked, collecting flies of various kinds AND mosquitoes (which was the big problem as NZ mosquitoes regarded M as a banquet).

    What about screen doors?

    No ideas for prevention but I use window stickers that attract them and they're stuck!!

    Deff. screens, we came here via Aussie so screens were a must. you dont seem to be able to get just fly screen doors, so we have had to install a security screen door on the front and also between the house and garage it all seems to work very well. I used to use the plug in mosquito gadget which worked pretty well in the bedroom before we were fully screened.
