Hey guys we've got a major fly problem. In the 5 years we've had this enclosure it's the first time it's been this bad. Of course with all the rain we've had here in Alabama lately we haven't been able to mow or weedeat so that might be a factor. But basically here's the problem:
On one end of the enclosure we have it completely tarped off with 2 door openings and it's where their houses are & where we feed them. It has a ton of flies in it. It also floods really bad in there and it never did that until we had a huge storm come through several months ago.
And then on the other end is where they use the bathroom and you can imagine how many flies are in this area. They've also worn the grass down and it doesn't grow in there anymore so it's just dirt which is now mud because of all the rain so it's next to impossible to keep completely clean. We rake & shovel but we can never get it all up. We also made mistake of using pine shavings in their houses instead of straw & we're afraid that this has attracted the flies in their houses plus the fact that it, as mentioned above, floods & stays wet.
What can we do?? I have included pictures of the enclosure.
