Home Flies and Proper Control

Home Improvement,Health,Environment
How do we keep flies out of the house. To search an answer to this question is of prime importance because nothing in this world is more irritating and disgusting than the flies that land up any time and anywhere be it the nose, face or any part of the body.

Even the buzzing of flies is too embarrassing that puts a question mark on the personal hygiene.

House flies are not only one of the most annoying insects as they buzz around your head while you are trying to sleep or any other time, but they are also extremely unsanitary. These annoying insects will search out any tiny scrap of food they can find. They also leave behind something for you or your children, bacteria that causes diarrhea, cholera and food poisoning to name a few.

What attracts flies? This question must be answered before using any method to throw away the flies out from your house. As we know that flies love decomposed organic matter, so do not allow such material to gather around. For this you need to seal the garbage can properly and if possible keep the garbage can as far as possible from the home. If you find that the garbage has been infested with maggots or some spoiled food is kept inside the house, then it should be immediately thrown away. If you have a dog or any pet, give him/her a daily bath and keep the surrounding hygienic. Cleaning up the area where he generally hangs out can help you keep the flies away.

Fly Traps You can find a variety of traps in varied size and shape. If the population of the flies are less in number, then fly papers can work. Other than this, ultraviolet trap can also be effective as they are attracted by the UV rays and get zapped as soon as they come inside. The baits like sugar, fruit, molasses and meat can be used at a distance of thirty feet from each other to catch hold of flies.

Water-Bag Trick Fill half of the plastic bag with water and hang it on the entrance of the house or on the window. This bag will stop the flies from entering the house. This may sound a bit funny, but it does work and it might be a solution you're looking for. There are many theories that are assumed to be associated with it. Some say that the reflection of the water disorients them and divert them to some other way, and according to some, its reflection creates a mirage, I mean, looks like a cobweb to the flies so they avoid entering through that way.

Seal Entry Points The flies can even get into the house through a small hole in any corner of your house. So all such small holes should be sealed with the help of a sealant like caulking. The screens or any other ventilation spot that has wire or pipe kind of frame should be sealed. So, even a small entry point that gives an opportunity to come inside should be sealed. The doors and windows should not be left open for the flies.

Insecticides The insecticides should be used only when you have tried all the other methods because insecticide spray can have certain ill-effects on human health. Moreover, the spay should be done by the professionals. Generally permethrin or dichlorvos are used as a spray for the flies. This is a permanent solution if you are thinking of how to kill a fly without much effort?

Other than these methods, nature has blessed us with many plants that can help rid flies from your home by repelling the insects and flies with their color and odor. Here, are a list of few effective anti-pest plants for you.

* Citronella grass * Catnip * Rosemary * Marigolds * Peppermint * Garlic * Eucalyptus * Tea tree * Lavender
