I have fled everywhere on my porch. What are some good ideas to get rid of them besides sitting out in the heat killing them with a fly swatter??

Idk, bug spray? There must be something around your porch they are attracted to.

I am swatting them and then the other ones are landing where I killed the other ones. I have kittens so I can't spray allot. They are part of the problem, but not all of it. I have to wait till she gets home with a hose to clean it

50% pine sol mixed with 50% water. Mix in a spray bottle. You can spray your surfaces or wipe. Keeps them away for a little while. Nothing's permanent

Have heard, if you put 5 pennies in a baggie and fill it halfway with water, then hang it near where they are, they will disappear.  Has something to do with their eyesight, keeps them from going inside the house if hung  near the door.

I've heard somewhat the same thing. Hang zipper bags filled with water, the flies can't handle reflections.
