flies

So long story short a mouse or rat died in wall yes, it stuck out the house but we got through it (we can not reach the dead thing) however, it appears it may have attracted some flies inside I'm not sure on their entrance but believe me I shall find it! However, until then what is good for getting rid of flies? I have so far done shooting the buggers when I see them however, I don't really want to keep using spray especially when kids are home from school, I have also set up some fly traps using empty water bottles and syrup water. What works for you?

I give my kids a rolled up newspaper and send them off to swat some flies. My 5 year old son has quite a talent for it. I don't use the spray unless I really have to.
