What's best to control the little black flies, (if possible) around the house,

Same as controlling flies in the UK - a rolled up newspaper!

Seriously, we just use a spray from the supermarket and make sure there isn't any ripe fruit around in the house.

We've just bought a 'tennis bat' fly killer from the local Chinese bazaar which is great for zapping them!

Try a plug-in gadget - it emits a high pitched sound that only insects and mice can hear!

And my poor cats who were too frightened to come into the house whilst the damn thing was plugged in. The minute I unplugged it they returned. Had no noticeable effect on the insect population.

Re the mice - see above, cats!

Hi Liam, try calling the pest control company Control Natural de Plagas, they are extremely professional, speak English and should be able to get you sorted.  The number I have for them is 692863608.

Plugged it in. 5 minutes. Fly landed on it! Either deaf or likes the red-blinking light. Villas.
