I,ve hardley ever seen any flies either outside or in unless you leave food to go off or their poos in the enclosure, torts don,t smell or mess much so I don,t think theres a lot for flies to be attracted to, I pick up any poo I find and throw any uneaten food away and its fine,

i havnt seen many flies either, only in the outdoor enclosure but i put an incense stick up to stop them from going in....may not be the best thing for tortoises oops :) ... or invest in a chameleon? :7

I think that flies must be mostly attracted to animals with fur as we don,t get them around the birds either, birds don,t give off a smell anymore than reptiles so maybe thats why plus they don,t eat meat so their poo perhaps isn,t very tasty to a fly.

Like everyone says just old food and poop is the attraction. As far as the torts go i guess they would come across flies in the wild and it doesnt bother them too much.!!!!:7
