frick'n flys

So we are currently staying on a 30 acre horse/sheep/cattle/pig/chicken ranch. Our nephew and his wife raise grass fed animals and sell "organic" meat on line. We have a 2015 Voltage 3800, and there are days that the fly population inside exceeds the occupancy load. No we don't leave the doors open. Some days we leave the main door open with the screen door shut. The screen door has a sweep at the bottom and where the shock attaches it causes the "hair" sweep not to make a complete seal. I cannot see any way to replace the sweep.
So here's the question, where can you find parts for the screen door, and dose anyone have a trick way to do in these obnoxious creatures? (We're not moving anytime soon)
Thanks for any help,
Fly blowed at the farm.

Well the Amish put shiny pennies in a baggie of water and hang them around in their barns, seems to keep the fly population way down. I believe it is because the flies think the baggies are a predator.

I like fly paper, makes it easier to pull the wings off.

Check your local big box home improvement store, there are several same sweeps that should fit the bill.
