Yellow Flies Are Back

Yellow flies are back! These things will ruin any outside time you may be trying to enjoy. Their nuisance seems to peek during May and June. You dont really need me to tell you how terrible they are! I assume the only reason you started reading this was because you are looking for solutions. A sticky black ball is a solution that homeowners can use to avoid pesticides. Its exactly as it sounds, a black ball coated with Tangle-Trap. It comes as a spray or a liquid applicator. You can pick it up at Ace Hardware stores.  Hanging them in a shaded area about 4 feet off the ground seems to get the best results. The wind causes the ball to move which attracts the flies. They land, get stuck and die. 


South Walton Mosquito Control District offers of black balls, with a string and Tangle-Trap supply for free to residents in south Walton County that live south of the Choctawhatchee Bay only. Available for pick up only with proof of residency such as a utility bill with address. For more information, call (850) 267-2112. Their office is open Mon. – Fri. 7:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
