Default Flies

My daughter lives out in the countryside surrounded by grape vines and that might be the reason... at the moment she is going crazy with flies. They have sprayed, used papers, fly traps etc but nothing seems to work any suggestions?
Thanks..

Yes! Get Steve Hall to move in! Flies are attracted to him like a fermenting turd!

Give each member of the family a fly swat and have competitions. We did it on holiday once in a campsite near Guardamar. It was hilarious and the fly population definitely went down

Well I would think if dead beasties were lying around the smell would be awful, we think it might be because of the grapes, local people also are saying this is the worst year in memory, but it still doesn't solve the problem lol. We tried the old clear plastic bags filled with water trick but no luck with that.
