Anyway do a search on images in your favorite browser and be sure the flies you are seeing look like this one.
Don’t forget there is another species called the small bulb fly that mostly feeds on diseased of dying bulbs in the amaryllis family.
We are having catastrophic amounts of rain as our daffodils die down. Most of our fields have been standing in water for two weeks. Rain for the last 5 out of 9 days and already another inch of rain this morning.
