Nasturtium and flies (not aphids)
North Yorkshire , United Kingdom
I wonder if anyone can help me - I filled all spare space in my garden with nasturtiums this year. The problem is, the climbing variety is attracting hundreds of what look like bluebottles. I've had to pull up the plants near the house for obvious reasons and I think I'll have to pull up the rest. I've searched on the internet and I can only find mention of blackfly - I do have lots of blackfly on the nasturtiums, but I was expecting this. I certainly wasn't expecting the swarms of big flies though. Has anyone come across this before?
