Admired for its ability to annoy.

Flies are a type of above ground vermin. They are found in swarms near pools, farms with unpicked food and food stockpiles, and may cause food to rot. Since cats cannot kill flies, the best way to protect against them is to make sure food is not left outside of a container too long. Make sure you have enough barrels and bags to store your food and someone ready to pick food from farms once ready. If there's no food around outside of a container, flies will go away.
