Shoo fly, don’t bother me! There’s nothing more annoying than a fly that won’t leave you alone, and if you have more than one inside your home, you probably want to eliminate them as soon as possible. There are many home remedies for treating house flies, but if you’re still having problems with these pests, contact a Clegg’s Pest Control professional today for a FREE initial inspection and custom treatment plan. Read on below for more information about how to control and prevent house flies!


How Did I Get House Flies?

Flies are most common during the spring, summer, and fall months and will seek out food sources. Common reasons flies can be found indoors include uncovered trash cans, ripening fruit on countertops, spilled sodas or open containers of alcohol, pet feces around the property, or dirty drains and sinks. If you leave the windows open on a cool day, look out – flies have an open invitation to your home!


How Can I Prevent House Flies?

Be sure to keep all trash cans, recycling bins, and composting bins covered. You can also clean your garbage disposal and other commonly used drains and keep your property clear of debris, pet feces, or other food-related waste. Keep windows and doors tightly shut when not opening them for fresh air, and make sure that you don’t cook or leave food out when windows are open. 


How Can I Get Rid of House Flies?

Homemade fly traps can be a good place to start. However, if you notice that these insects aren’t going away, it’s time to call a professional. You may have a fly breeding site nearby that needs to be treated, and DIY approaches simply won’t get the job done. If you have questions about professional fly treatment, contact us today. 

If you’d like to try treating a fly problem yourself, opt for soda bottle traps or combine vinegar and dish soap for a sticky concoction that flies won’t be able to get out of.
