Whats the best way to get rid of the flies that are swarming around this tree stump? We had it cut down a few months ago and it's pretty flush to the ground. Any ideas?

You might try a box with flypaper in it. (You can buy this premade ready to use.)

It may be necessary to suspend it above the stump if animals knock it down overnight when it just sits on the stump.

Just spread a shovel or two of dirt, floor dry, kitty litter, or whatever you have on it, to absorb the sap as it leaches out of the stump.

thats a good idea because in a year or so the ants will build a colony in the stump . i had ants coming in my living room couldnt figure out where they were coming from , well one day i decided to get rid of a stump about 40 feet from the house sure enough as i got into it there was a huge ant colony in it . those ants are gone but now i have differnt ones .
