As of yesterday some type of biting flies have moved into the neighborhood. Jodi and I tried to walk the dogs on the beach yesterday and didn’t get far before we had to turn around and head home. We were all getting swarmed and bitten by some type of flies.
I went back out this morning to walk Daisy along the beach. We made it about 3/4 of a mile down when I started noticing the flies again. At first there were just a few and then they started swarming. Obviously, or in todays vernacular: tots obvs, we turned around and headed back to the house. Unfortunately, the flies were faster then me and they were piling up on my back by the time we got to the screened in deck.
So far we haven’t been able to find much info about why they’re swarming now, what to do about them, etc. Hopefully they’ll just blow away before long.
