Anyone know what kind of flies these are all over my purslane and how do I organically keep them away? Any help is appreciated. They are ruining my patio enjoyment.

Humm 😕😕😕 ??? You made me put my thinking cap on ! D'Oh!
Fly paper ? One of those electric bug zappers? Or make one of thouse wasp traps with a 2 liter clear plastic bottle, and bait it with sugary drink, and add a drop of dish soap, so flies get stuck. If that doesn't work, try balsamic vinegar.

Thank You! Thanks for your advice. I will try Apple cider vinegar since I have it on hand. Hope it works.
