How to Control Flies in My Home

Bessenbandzweefvlieg_Vrouwtje_(2)Most people know how annoying flies can be. Once a fly gets into the home it is really challenging to get them out. They can certainly be a nuisance while you are watching TV, and even more of a nuisance if you are trying to eat a meal with your family. Flies can also be carriers of diseases so you certainly want to do what you can to avoid having them enter your home. Here are some tips on controlling flies in your home.

Don’t Invite Them in

While you likely aren’t beckoning the flies to swarm in through the window, you might engage in behaviors that encourage them to pick your house out from the others. Flies are often attracted to food that is left out, especially fruit, so make sure you put these items away. It is also a smart idea to keep your home clean. If you see any type of fly specs on your windows or walls, be sure to clean this as soon as possible because these traces attract other flies.

Set up Traps Immediately

One fly who swirls in when you accidentally leave the door open for too long might not be a problem, but as soon as you suspect that this individual is not the lone offender, begin to set up fly traps. When purchasing traps, ensure that they do not contain any ingredients that are harmful to the people or pets in your home. Traps come in a variety of styles, so do some research on which one will work best for your home.

Home Based Remedies

There are also a number of home based remedies that you can use to control flies. For instance, flies hate Vodka. They cannot stand the smell, so by doing some research online you will be able to find some remedies using vodka. In addition, Lemongrass oil, cloves, and apple cider vinegar are other ingredients that are used to create home remedies.

Professional Help

If over the counter methods are not helping you remove the flies from your home, you should contact a professional. A professional can help you control your fly problem. For more information, contact Clegg’s online. Or you can call on the phone at 888-672-5344 for a complete evaluation of your home or business.
