Sorry, posted this incorrectly 1st time on wrong forum board!!

Try again........

Every summer we get complaints from residents and guests using our community gardens and pool that there are to many flys about and it makes sunbathing a pain when all you do all day is waft the flys away.

We control the watering carefully, we fertilize grass and flowerbeds over the winter with chemicals not manure...we have animals under control in the gardens except for a few strays.....but there are still hundreds about!!!!

Everyone must suffer with the same issues, so how do you try and control the fly population in your gardens?

We have used the red-top fly catchers in the past and that worked to some degree, but never solved the problem?

look forward to hearing your tips so that we can pass them on to our gardener and presidente

thanks for these two replies, the flytraps are the ones we have been using and they do have an effect if the gardener remembers to top them up, we have plastic bags in the bins around the pool and gardens and these are emptied daily, good point about the paths being washed down, ill suggest that as thats where wine and drinks can be spilt, 

food for the plants we bring over from the uk phostrogen i think so not using manure....unless the gardener has come up with his own cunning plan to help,

Owners do not walk animals through the gardens, there are a few strays about, but those are dissapearing fast as we got the police out to the people that were continually feeding them despite being asked not to.

After another ispection aroung the gardens i think we have some over watering on grass areas when people dont put the beds away and this can make the ground a bit sodden which then tends to attract the flys.... well keep looking and trying things.... 

Cheers for your time and advice

The code from DVLA is replacing the paper part of your licence. It allows the Hire company to immediately check who you are, if your licence is valid and if you are able to hire a car from them under their t&c's. You will need to request a code online or i believe by phone, which will be valid for 3 days (72 hours) once you have given this to the hire company on collection of the car, there is no need for an updated code every 72 hours its just a one off on each hire so that the EU driving agencies can also forward on any speeding fines and points to us....how nice of them.

Its a bit like all the police sitting on the tourist area roundabouts, stopping every car, breathalising and checking for driving in flip flops knowing that there is a cash dispenser close that they can accompany you to for any on the spot fines to be paid. 

Enjoy Spain this summer......

We have community notice boards outside every lift shaft and we update monthly the list of community debtors, we now publish the apartment number, amount and current activity ie passed to solicitors, in court, being sold etc etc etc.

the debtors got quite upset with the president when we initially included names, but he just said pay your bill and I'll remove you tomorrow!

its enough for them to be embarrassed in their own stairwells and the other residents get really annoyed when they use the pool and gardens knowing they are not paying, the worst is when the owners rent and don't pay the bills, it's then you have some leverage, unfortunately the water might go off or the TV channels don't work,  and a letter is pushed under their door informingthem they are not allowed to use the pool or gardens as unfortunately the apartment owner has failed to pay their community fees, the renters immediately complain to the owners and want their money back, when they call up our administrators they are told - sorry we are unable to assist you with any problems on the community until your debt is settled, do you have a credit card handy.......it always works.
