Fly Control Natural

A home solution, natural ways of fly control, is simply preventing flies from breeding in and around the home. Flies lay their eggs on decomposing organic matter, so it is necessary to keep lids on trash cans indoors and out, and to always cover food scraps left in the kitchen.

Flies breed where manure and garbage accumulates, so it is important to keep the perimeter of the home clean and clear of garbage, and to clean up any pet manure. Clean garbage cans with disinfectants on a weekly basis to reduce the attraction of the house fly. The garbage cans also benefit being equipped with tight-fitting lids. Trash should be disposed of on a weekly basis, even more frequently in the summer. Pet waste should be disposed of promptly, and not be allowed to stand in a garbage can for more than two days; which will definitely attract flies. Food should also not be allowed to stand, as the old food will attract flies and encourage their breeding. Many herbs and spices can be used as home remedies to repel flies from the home.

Natural Fly Control

Growing basil in flower pots or placing fresh-cut basil in vases and places where needed. Basil works as a natural repellent and flies will be apt to invade the home. Eucalyptus leaves can be burned outside, and used to repel flies as well as mosquito’s. A natural pests’ barrier can be made around the home to discourage flies from entering. The barriers are like barbed wire that keeps the flies out of the home. Growing certain plants around the periphery of the home can make barriers. The plants will look nice while deterring nasty flies from entering the home, and even the yard. For flies, mint and basil should be grown to repel them, and keep them from entering the human household. These plants may smell nice to humans, but they are extremely disgusting to house flies.

House flies can also be controlled by making natural fly traps. It is not commonly known, but flies are attracted to wine, specifically Chardonnay. There are a few ways wine can be used to help eliminate flies. Firstly, fly traps can be made by leaving an open bottle of wine out, lining the bottom of the wine bottle with mango peels. In this instance, flies will fly into the wine bottle, become stuck, and eventually die inside the bottle.

Another solution is by using wine that involves directly poisoning the house flies; fill a saucer with white wine and poisoned with dish detergent. Leave the saucer for flies to feed on; flies will drink the wine and eventually die from the poisoning.

Homeowners can also make their own fly paper to attract and kill flies. To make the fly paper, owners will need boiling water, sugar and corn syrup combined together. Spread the sticky mixture on a brown paper bag, and  place at fly entryways for the best results.
