There are more than 120,000 species of flies worldwide with about 18,000 found in North America.A female housefly can lay up to 600 eggs in her short lifetime.Most flies live an average of 21 days and take on various shapes throughout their short lives.Flies have been a nuisance insect for thousands of years. They affect human welfare because they can transmit diseases.
Flies such as the common house fly are classified as filth flies because they breed in rotten food, manure, and garbage. A fly can mature from egg to adult in as few as ten days. This quick maturity can cause a severe fly problem in a short period of time. Getting rid of flies long term begins with proper sanitation and exclusion.
This is the best and most effective way to get rid of flies – you’ll need the following ingredients:
- Empty spray bottle,
- 1 cinnamon stick,
- 10 drops of detergent,
- 1 cup of white vinegar and
- 1 cup of water!
If you don’t want to use commercial repellents with harsh chemicals, cinnamon oil can double as a natural deterrent.Insects don’t like the smell of cinnamon (silly little bugs). Plus they don’t like the feel of powdered cinnamon. Grate a cinnamon stick then sprinkle it around any place (inside or outside) you’re trying to get rid of ants or other annoying bugs. You can even sprinkle it around your kids’ sandbox to keep the bugs away.
Brilliant! You just need to put all the ingredients into the spray bottle and shake well.
- Keep your home premises always clean and hygienic.
- Use good quality disinfectant that works day till night.
- Throw away the garbage on a regular basis and make sure that you throw garbage at a location, quite away from your place.
