Recently my family and I have noticed flies in our kitchen. (They look bigger
than normal houseflies, and are showing up in great numbers.) We don’t know
where they are coming from or what type they are. The flies have red eyes, red
head, and a hairy body.

Dear Fogarty Family,
You have Flesh Flies. Some species breed in rotting meat and others breed in other types of rotting organic matter. In our Glassell Park studio in the 1980s, we had a horrible infestation of Flesh Flies that bred in the rotting potatoes under the kitchen sink. Take out the garbage more frequently especially when the weather is especially warm.
