Tell-Tale Fly Infestation Signs

Unless you observe flies coming into your residence in large numbers, you will probably not notice the various signs of fly infestation.

Frequent sightings of flies and insects in various corners of your house is a warning sign that your residence is infested with flies and fleas.

Maggots in the house are a sign that the flies are breeding. You will observe small, dark spots in the house, especially in areas that are dark and are difficult to see through.

The average lifespan of a fly is 22-25 days. Therefore, it is necessary to undertake house pest treatment as you observe the first signs of fly infestation. Otherwise, the infestation will get worse before you realize it.

3 Tips to Naturally Get Rid of Flies 

Professional treatment of flies and fleas in the house will cost you money however if you are tight on the budget, you can seek some natural techniques. Here are some natural house pest treatment for flies and fleas.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar as Bait

One of the most cost-effective solutions is to use a bowl of apple cider vinegar mixed with dish detergent as bait. Apple cider vinegar gives out a sweet smell that attracts the houseflies and fruit flies. Keep bowls containing the mix of dish detergent and apple cider vinegar in the open in the areas of infestations overnight. You will be able to spot plenty of dead flies and fleas in the bowl by the morning. 

2. Lemon and Clove Repellant

To make this natural fly repellant, you need to take two lemons and cut them in half. Insert 10-20 cloves in each of the lemons and keep them on a plate. Let it stay for a while as you watch the flies gather on the plate.

3. Eucalyptus and Clove Oil Repellant

It is one of the best house pest treatments. Take some eucalyptus drops in a cloth and hang the piece of cloth on the door and windows of your house. Alternatively, you can use rubbing alcohol, witch hazel or clove oil and mix them with water. If you want a practical solution, you may use any of the three without adding water. Spray it in every corner of your house to see the effect.
