Though the average female fly lives for only about one month, she can lay approximately 500 eggs in that short time. Even a handful of female flies in your backyard can quickly turn into thousands of flies. While flies serve their purpose for the environment, they can be a nuisance when they invade your home, carrying bacteria and diseases. They can also detract from your summer barbecues and time spent outdoors. Though it can seem daunting to rid your yard of flies, it is possible to minimize their population.
