Hello, I noticed a typo in my previous post. I meant to say that I DO believe the flies on the aspen trees IS the source of the fly problem. Corrected post below:

Hello, I have noticed what seem to be house flies all over my quaking aspen trees. Upon further inspection there are also ants at the base and up and down the trunk of one of them. It’s accompanied by a lot of fly activity in the yard and I believe this is the source. Any idea on the root cause of the problem and what I can do to eradicate it? It’s very embarrassing to have all these flies in the yard!
