View Full Version : Flies As a Result of Mulch
06-22-2002, 10:16 PM
I just had a customer call me and is saying that she is having troubles with flies (many) after we put mulch in her beds. I have the exact same mulch in all my beds and have no problem at all with flies.
Any thoughts on what this could be?? Any thoughts on a remedy??
Thanks in advance..

People tend to blame any new condition on any new variable. Have you seen the flies and investigated any other possible sources?
if you used hardwood mulch that has compost and manure mixed in with it then that is the reason. the flies should go away soon enough after a few days. btw hardwood may also grow fungus and mushrooms but that is the normal process of the mulch breaking down
