What do you do to keep the flies away from you yards?

I've been bleaching things down every other day and i spread some seven dust yesterday but it doesnt seem like it's done much good. I've got to keep axel grease on 3 of my dog's ears because of the flies, it's just like using vaseline, bag balm, utter butter, ect. I looked at Tractor Supply for a spray but the ones I found neeed to be done daily and they wouldnt last me very long.



I want to give the stuff you posted there a try but can I buy it some where other than online?

Try this solution, Water, Vinegar, and Dawn dish detergent. Suppose to work for fleas as well. I used it last year and it seemed to do some good. Flies are horrible this year.

We did the thing that guy suggested above. But it wasnt for dog's my grandpa roasted a whole pic (puke) and they were all jsut waiting lol

but we just used vinegar and dawn soap no water
the vinegar attracts the flies and the dawn soap (you dont use very much) gets caught on their wings or legs and they get stuck
