A lot of flies on the front yard flower.. What to do ? Help...


I setup the front yard flower bed... spent approx $200 bucks on it for soil and flowers/trees

now... 2 days after, found a lot of flies on the plants... questions:

- will this harm the plants?
- is it because we use too much flower specific soil which is too nuturious (12 bags) rather than using cheaper soil?
- how can we get rid of the flies...

thanks for answering

Flies will not normally hurt the plants..

Some plants actually attract flies...

What did you plant flower wise?

Sorry I don't know the name but looks like the situation is better after the heavy rainfall last night... may be just the beginning ... I am not going to worry about it ...

Thanks..

Check to see if you planted any daisies... They are known attractors of flies.
