Flies are one of the most despised creatures on Earth – their constant buzzing can drive a person crazy, and there are very gross. Flies are winged insects with more than 1200 species which grow as they age, and they can carry serious diseases such as cholera, dysentery, diarrhea and typhoid.
The domestic fly is called Musca Domestica. This species doesn’t bite, but can transmit several serious diseases. House flies have been known to cause eye infections often. They often gather in unclean areas in your home, as well as near the garbage bin. Uncovered food also attracts flies, as do areas with shrubbery and thick vegetation. Flies are not easy to get rid of – people usually kill them with a rolled-up newspaper or whatever they have in hand, but luckily, we’re going to show you a mixture that will get rid of them effectively and prevent them from coming into your home again.
All you need is an empty spray bottle, 10 drops of detergent, 1 cinnamon stick, a cup of white vinegar and a cup of water. Just mix everything in the spray bottle and spray the mixture on the surface frequented by flies and on the insects themselves – in just a short time they will fall down to the ground and the mixture will keep them away from your home for good.
In order to get rid of flies, you should always keep your home clean and use a good quality disinfectant which will keep surfaces in your home clean for a long time. As garbage bins are ideal for flies, keep that area clean and take out the trash regularly. You can also put a lid on the bin in order to keep flies away from the garbage.
