“Dear PoPville,

I’ve lived in my English Basement for about 3 years now and I’ve never had an issue with bugs/insects. Over the past 2-3 weeks I have seen a significant increase in the number of houseflies. I’ve purchased window fly strips, a sticky fly wand and one of those “Fly Bags” you fill with water and put it outside my house. The issue continues to persist and I cannot find the source of the issue. Do you have any other tips on how to remove the flies? I’m catching at least 30 a day. Is this something that will subside after the summer months or does anyone have any success stories?”
