I don't think that the cats and squirrels are directly responsible for the number of flies in your yard. To reduce the number of flies, make sure any trash containers are tightly sealed and that any dropped fruits or vegetables in your gardens are cleaned up promptly. If the cats are leaving lots of feces in your yard, clean it up regularly. If you compost kitchen and garden waste, use an enclosed composter.
