    Default What kind of flies are these?

    They fly around in circles around each other in the middle of my covered patio. They fly slow and in a position where their rear ends are down much lower than their heads. They are smaller than normal house flies but much larger than fruit flies. They don't care about fly paper. Nothing seems to get rid of them! Any ideas?

    A rotting carcass may do the trick. Maybe easier to id the maggots.
