In addition to fly paper you might try electric bug zappers or a 
mixture of 50/50 apple cider vinegar and water with a little dish 
soap in it.  Put it in pint jars in various locations around the 
growing room.  It attracts and drowns the flies.  These get at the 
adult flies which helps some.
Good luck!
