Unhappy Flies


Just got back from our first weekend in the van. We are thrilled to bits with the caravan and have now settled all our stuff in and had a great weekend. However, when we viewed the caravan a few weeks ago we noticed a few dead flies on the window sill and didn't think anything of it. On arriving at the van yesterday there were perhaps 25 dead flies on the window sill again. I cleaned them all up, lifting all the seating and thoroughly hoovered everywhere to make sure there were no more. Then after a few hours we noticed 2 live flies in the window. Again we got rid of them and another couple of hours later noticed a couple more. So we bought some fly killer and Wil took the vents off near the windows and sprayed in the gap.

Nightmare!! We could hear them buzzing away in the wall of the caravan. He kept spraying and some flew out and died. However, I am obviously very concerned that they will have laid lots of eggs and we will have an ongoing problem. Also will all the dead flies start smelling in the cavity wall??? Euuhhhww I'm really a bit freaked out by it and am now obsessing!! Has anyone had a similar problem, and how difficult is it to resolve?

I am thinking about just calling in pest control this week to get them to check it out. They just look like normal houseflies, but I am now dreading going back to the caravan.

Any advice welcome
