    I would also put fly traps around your yard to reduce and deter the local fly population.
    Mine are homemade, a glas jar with a black plastic flower pot upside down on top (those disposable ones plants are sold in, with holes in the bottom), and a black plastic cover 2cm above the holes of the flower pot, somewhat larger in diameter than pot and jar (hot glue is perfect for assembling). Then I put a little meat, cat- or dog food (doesn't need much, about a fingers size or so), water and some drops of dish soap in it, about half full. It takes a few days to start working.

    This works because the flies (exactly the types that cause problems) are atracted by the decomposing meat, and they always try to fly toward light - so when the entry holes are shielded from light they do not find out of the trap. Use large jars, emtying them is an ugly business.

    One warning: Those traps really do stink. But that's why they work.

    You could also perhaps try echinacea to build her immune system ..

    Thank you.
