Default Flies on Patio!!!!!

OK, whats the trick to keep flies from hanging around the patio? I know they are attracted to the smell from my BGE, however, something has got to give. I know that every day I kill atleast 5 and one would think that the local population would be getting thin but I think that the more I kill the more they multiply....

I am intersted in knowing what the solution is?

I keep a container of dog crap on the other side of the property. Seems to keep them over there.

Ziploc bag full of water hanging from the ceiling. I didn't make it through the whole Mythbusters where they tried this though. YMMV.

This, but you need to throw a couple shiny pennies in the bag of water. Not sure how it works, but it does. The reflection of the pennies is supposed to play havoc on their multi-facetted eyes.
