i imagine we are currently at the most flyless point in human history, what with our walls and buildings and sophisticated plumbing/sewage systems and AC and lack of corpses on public display.
still, flies like water, and they like organic matter, so they linger on. they may be with us until death is conquered. nowadays we can achieve distance from flies through the application of technology and willpower.
flies like sitting water, anything from our standard yard/road puddle to condensation on our iced drinks to the water mysteriously leaking from our refrigerator.
some puddles you can control, some you cannot.
god bless you who tame the savage fly.

We get flies, and ants, periodically. Reason One is probably that we have a toddler who wanders about everywhere, spilling sugary drinks and flinging his snacks about. If we got rid of the toddler we'd have a lot fewer bugs in the house. Also it's an old house, and therefore basically porous.
I don't like bug spray (cf. small children who touch everything and put random things in their mouths), but I do generally kill the flies. They're too nimble to catch and release, and generally very good at flying. So I spray them with something innocuous (water, glass cleaner, air freshener), not to kill them but to make them temporarily bad at flying. When they stop to clean off whatever it is, then I swat them. I may feel slightly bad, but I feel this is morally preferable to allowing them to breed in the house and thereby making more flies, who would lead frustratingly short indoor lives before needing to be killed in some ignominious manner.
Society in general gets a C+ in my estimation. It has a ways to go, but so do I. There is a lot of evil about - as there always has been - but decent people are getting better every day about recognizing it and calling it out.

The different types of flies behave in quite different ways. The bigger ones seem to just want to get out of the house back into the open air, and they usually find their way out pretty quickly. They actually seem quite clever in finding their way around, but if they have trouble, I'll draw curtains and direct them towards a door, where there's light, and beyond that an open window. Smaller ones seem more intent on staying inside and looking for things to feed on. They seem to be most attracted by sugary things, like the rims of glasses of wine or beer. They just keep coming back, and they fly fast, so they are difficult to capture. They seem to like resting on walls rather than horizontal surfaces, so I wait until they settle on a wall, approach slowly and catch in a glass, then release out of the window.
The worst flies are the tiny ones that congregate in huge clouds anywhere near sewage plants, or rivers and streams receiving cleansed water from sewage plants.
