Getting Rid of Flies InsideOver the weekend (starting on Saturday afternoon) we opened our patio door. The screen door is always shut even when we close the glass door. Out of nowhere, there were approximately 15-20 flies on the screen on the inside. We sprayed the screen and the flies died. However, later that night, still in the kitchen there were about 10-12 more flies flying around the kitchen, but all seemed to be hanging around the sliding glass door. My question is: Where are the flies coming from and why all of a sudden? The more we spray the more they seem to come out.
