can anyone tell me why I have lots of house flies dead between the polycarbonate panels of my greenhouse.
It was only erected in September

On plant greenweed



One must have got in and laid eggs which hatched. We had two infestations like this indoors this winter. Very unpleasant.

Great though polycarbonate panels are, they have 'open' ends which MUST be sealed with aluminium strips AND tape to be absolutely sure, otherwise all kinds of insects get inside them on the cut ends.
How do I know this? Because the roof of my conservatory looks like your greenhouse, because I didn't do what the instructions told me to do in sealing the ends of the panels as soon as they were put in place.
