I have a perennial daisy (white with yellow center). Every year green headed flys get all over. They seem to be laying larva in the yellow center. I've sprayed with Seven to no avail. How do I get rid of them?

Your daisy is attractive to the flies because they are good places for the fly offspring to feed. Mom's always know best! There's really no way to control the flies but you can dust or spray the flowers with Dipel or Thuricide. It kills caterpillars. Hope it works well in your garden.
