Hi.

Whats the best way to rid a greenhouse of flies? i've had to completely open my door and window to help ventilation in the last few days and a good few flies are getting trapped when i close up at night.

What can i do?

thanks

are you sure that they are house flies as they are not attracted to any growing material. there may be something in the greenhouse that is attracting them, try and locate what they are feeding on and get rid of that. There are a number of flies very similar to house flies that lay eggs and the larva attack fruit and vegetables.
