swarms of flies in compost

Posted: 24/07/2014 at 19:50

I had this earlier in the year, I used the lid of the bin to fan the flies away. The moment you add the carbon that you mention above and turn the contents of the bin, it will help. Basically it is the fructose (?) that they are after so turning the bin will bury it a bit.

Tender Perennial.

Went shopping this am and returned home feeling almost sick with the heat. Couldn't do any serious work till 4.00. Outdoor toms were in a state of collapse, though I checked them this am and they had water. It is actually too hot to do any work in the garden from 10.00 to 3.00.

Lyn, here we are just below sea level I believe
