I've lived here in Chino Hills for 10+ years. Maybe I just don't notice it, but I do not see flys or smell the cows. When I head into dairyland then it is bad. I've gone into S. Ontairo and that's not nice(Riverside Drive). I live near to Chino Hills High. The house is nearly up against the 71, but there is a dirt lot at the rear with a great view of Big League Dreams Park.

The first time I went to So. Cal. I went to Ontario. Then one morning when the air was still fresh and cool. I've noticed a repulsive smell of manure. So that left me branded for the next couple of years.

THAT is how Los Angeles smells like!! The big city hahaha!
But yes it is quite bad.

I would take the area of smog and pollution over the smell of manure ANY day.

mmm smog

i lived in ontario 1989-1994. didn't really smell all that bad. depends how much it bothers you i guess.

I just reseeded my lawn a while back (10 minutes from ontario)... my lawn is so small, its about the size of two cars parked tightly side to side... that smelled worse then ontario ever did.

I've lived in South Chino Hills (off Soquel Canyon) for 10 years and there is NO fly problem whatsoever. Unless you head into deep into Chino or Ontario, you should have no issues with flies or smell in the area. Chino Hills also is at a higher elevation (hills) and most of the smell stays in the flat areas that surround it. Also, there is a nice breeze that comes through the canyon everyday which keeps the air much healthier than the rest of the inland empire.

We've lived in Butterfield Ranch since 1989. I've never noticed a problem with flies or bad smells here at all.

We moved to Southern CA from Chicago in 1984 and spent a few years in LA, then moved to this area. We raised our kids here and we love it. There isn't a perfect place to live anywhere in the world but I couldn't imagine a nicer place to live and raise a family than right here.

Since I typically hang out in Northern part of C/H, I discovered the cow smell is very noticable near when driving down the 71 near the 91. I also stopped at Chino Airport a couple months back when it was ~90F out there and the fly problem was overwhelming.

My question: To those who live in the Southern part of Chino Hills (off Pine, Euclid, C/H Pkwy, Central, etc.), how bad is the smelll/fly problem? Is it constant? In what months are the problems worst and for how long? TIA!!!

Well i have lived over on butterfield ranch area 4,10 yrs and u can't even Smell the Cows and there is no fly problem

Default chino,chino hills

Chino Hills, except is some older areas and in Los Serranos, is pretty nice. Ants are far worse than the flies. The smell from Chino is only obvious when the wind blows or on a dewey summer/spring morning. It has gotten so crowded compared to years ago, but it's still nice. It's still overpriced if you ask me for what you get, but there is great shopping and nice people. Shop around. There are quite a few places that fit that bill and you may get a better yard somewhere else. Good luck!
