I have read that basil will get rid of them. Just put it in the areas you are having problems with. I haven't actually tried it though so I am not sure it will work. Good Luck
My sister sent me this information
Zip-lock water bags
Many people swear that a zip-lock bag filled half-way with water and attached over entry-ways will repel flies. No one yet knows how or why it works, but there is speculation that it has something to do with the way the moving water refracts light.
I tried this last year and although it didn't stop them all, it did cut the number of flies coming in by a lot!
Hi! I haven't tried it but my aunt swears by it. She hangs a quart size baggie filled with water and one penny inside it outside her doors and no flies enter the house. Good Luck!
