Hi Timbertrrail -
I forget when you are traveling, but I have been in the countryside, around the lakes, and not so much in the Alps in April, May (a lot) , June, not July. A little bit of March some years ago.
The black flies which have bitten me extensively and intensively in western Massachusetts in May do not seem to exist in Switzerland. Never had any trouble. Regular flies, especially in the countryside...definitely. Since the Swiss tend not poison the environment with toxic sprays, the fly population can be quite dense in places....cows, farms, cows, cheese, and more cows, do attract flies.
