GAOCHUN COUNTY, CHINA – OCTOBER 25: (CHINA OUT) Houseflies cling to nets at a housefly farm on October 25, 2007 in Gaochun County of Jiangsu Province, China. The housefly (Musca domestica) may also be a source of elements essential for developing medicines to treat a number of human diseases, including cancer, and protein and vitamin-rich fly larvae may become one of the main sources of protein for humans. The farm sells the insects onto medical companies. (Photo by China Photos/Getty Images)

Janelle Iaccino, “The Bug Girl” from Rose Pest Solutions, joins Anna to talk about why we are seeing so many flies this year and what we can do to prevent them from ruining a relaxing night out on the deck.
