HELP!!! Overwhelmed by Cluster Flies

Our log home is in Gobles, MI near Kalamazoo, MI.  We have owned the home for 10 years and have always had a problem with the invasion of house flies and wasps in the fall but this year there are close to a hundred on the south facing window every day that it is sunny.  I have tried commercial attractants from Gemplers but to no avail.  Does anyone have a suggestion and if it involves sealing around the window, whom do I call?  Thank you for any helpful info.  I'm beside myself!Marcia McMorrowSee More
