New buzz on the fly front...
The City of Sonora has made headway toward solving downtown’s pest problem in time for tourism season.
According to City Councilwoman Connie Williams, the city recently hired an entomologist to study the flies and determined the nasty, pesky critters are common house flies.
They apparently enjoy shade as much as people and thus are congregating under the downtown area’s awnings, she said.
The best way to get rid of the flies, Williams said, is for businesses to run house fans outside their entrances, as this will shoo them away.
For all our sanity, we encourage all businesses to follow this advice.
