We have black flies in the yard and they bite!! I have WELTS on my body from getting bit. We are having a party on Sunday and I don't want my guests to have to deal with them. What can I do to get rid of them?

Wonderful little critters, aren't they?

I guess the surest method of defeating them would be to issue your party guests insect hoods and large cans of DEET-based repellant --- might put a damper on the events, though.

Your best bet for a party free of flying vampires is likely a propane-powered fogger such as the one in the link:

Good luck with your festivities.
