black flies on my tomatos

United Kingdom Gb

my toms are covered in black flies any tips on what to use as i'd like to keep them organic or as organic as possible thanks.



If they are in a greenhouse, just hang up those sticky yellow fly papers.

How big are they incidentally? They might be scarid fly which suggests that the surface of your compost is staying a bit too wet making it a perfect breeding ground for their tiny soil living maggots.
