Flies can be a major problem for many people, particularly during the summer. Flies can spoil food, spread germs and disease, and are generally a nuisance as they fly around. Fortunately there are mny easy ways of discouraging them from entering your home that can be quickly and cheaply implemented.
Make your home more secure against flies The most common way that flies enter your home is through open windows and doors. Ensure that all windows and doors have mesh screen coverings fitted over them. These can be obtained from most hardware stores, and come as standard in some parts of the country. They basically mean that when you open a window, you will have a mesh screen between you and the outside world, keeping bugs and flies out, but letting fresh air inside. Similarly fitting a screen door on the outside of your front and back doors will help to keep flies out as they mean there is twice the obstacles to navigate.
Make your home less attractive Using fly repellent candles and incense sticks in your home will mean that flies will actually tend to avoid the place rather then being drawn in. Burning a repellent candle in the evenings will also keep mosquitoes away from your home, which are often considered worse then flies.
