Spring Flies

Why, in spring, as soon as it gets warm, do 92,342,344,234,652 flies hatch in our yard?

Walking across the grass, the entire lawn is buzzing.

Our house is completely covered in house flies, front and back.

Our windows are wooden, and several of them find a way in to buzz in the inside of the windows.

Sally, our cat, loves to chase and eat them, but I think even she has had enough, since Jeff found a couple regurgitated flies on the floor yesterday morning.

Is this normal?

What can we do?

Here’s a few quick photos from our back porch:
