I agree with you, hardly any around this area but I recall that some parts of the UK were getting more than usual.

Hardly a fly indoors but for me the most noticeable was hardly any slugs.

I saw more this year than any other in the last 10 years! I even saw a wasp nest this year!

Always flies in the house at summer suppose living next to trees doesn't help. Plenty bumble bees too hovering around my bushes in the front garden though they've packed up and gone now until next year.

Re: There`s no flies on me !

An absolute f-load of flies round here through the summer, very few wasps though, but the flies, ugh, it's mostly due to a neighbour with dogs who just scoops up their leavings and throws them straight (I.E. unbagged) into her broken-lidded bin, so, flies just swarm to the area and breed like, er, flies... Roll eyes
So that's probably why there weren't many flies elsewhere, they were all here cos of an irresponsible dog owner (not just for the poo, plenty of other things she is irresponsible with) not being sanitary....
