Default House fly control

Thought I read a thread here recently regarding house fly control, but I can't find it. We have a neighbor with a few feral hogs penned up and the flies hanging around our house are terrible. Does anyone have a recommendation on how to knock them back?

Probably not what you're looking for, but my granddad had a farm and put on a screened porch to give a first defense area to keep them from coming in the house.

I have thought about that route for the porch, but the main issue is we have so many congregating around our trash can and in the garage. I'd be curious to hear about chemical applications to try. Thanks for the reply, though!

Default House Flies

Try getting 3 or 4 quart size freezer bags, fill half way up with water and 3 or 4 pennies and hang in the area where flies are giving you problems. I hang 2 bags at the skinnin rack and have minimal problems with flies.

I saw on FB a person posted getting a mason jar and filling it up half way with syrup and then slicing a hot dog up into 8-10 small half moon shaped pieces and putting it in the jar. Then, with a hammer and nail, poke holes large enough for the flies to get in. Hang it outside away from the porch and they'll be attracted to it and it will trap them in it. Not sure if it works, but people were saying it did.
