Try these home remedies:

You can pour hot boiling water along with a strong cleaning detergent down your drain to eliminate nuisance gnats and flies.

A potted basil plant or lavender plant in the house will repel flies and mosquitos.



Herb experts claim that if you want to use the braai and flies keep bugging you, a herb called Citronella Grass planted around the braai is very helpful in keeping flies away.

Getting rid of flies in the house naturally is first and foremost by making sure that your house and surroundings are completely clean. Immaculate personal and family hygiene is the easiest take on how to get rid of flies in the house naturally. With the onset of summers the number of houseflies increase and the simplest natural remedies for flies is to make sure that the garbage cans in your house are always covered. Open garbage attract flies and become an instant breeding ground for them.

Covering the garbage inside your house and in the areas surrounding your house will help to get rid of flies in the house quickly. Use a garbage bag especially for kitchen waste as it acts like a magnet for flies. Make sure that you get rid of all forms of garbage from your house. Spraying your garbage cans with aerosol fly spray is another household remedies for flies. These fly sprays are very effective as they repel the flies from the garbage cans. Make sure you spray it in the garbage can and around the area where your can is kept so that no houseflies will be able to come close. No amount of home remedies for flies would work if the surroundings are not clean. Another of the home remedies to get rid of files is to avoid keeping food out in the open. Leaving fruits and eatables outside are a constant invitation for an infestation of flies. Use the refrigerator to store food that you usually keep out or in rare cases make sure that you cover the food with other utensils so that the food doesn't attract flies. Among other home remedies to kill flies, you could also use fly paper. This kind of paper is easily available in most of the general stores. This paper has one side that is sticky and one side that is not. You can cover certain food items with this kind of fly paper and you will find that at the end of the day there will be a few flies at least that would have gotten stuck to the paper and died. Then you just need to make sure that you dispose of the fly paper in the right way so that the dead flies don’t end up attracting more flies. Fly traps are also easy and cheap home remedies to kill flies. Fly traps are said to emit a certain smell which attracts the flies and acts as bait to the fly. After the fly enters the trap it is unable to get out. The advantage of this kind of a trap is that a large number of flies can be caught at the same time and easily be done away with.

Other home remedies to get rid of flies include an old practice of using apples and cloves. It is believed that flies cannot bear the smell of cloves and therefore will leave that place till where the smell carries. It is one of the most useful natural remedies to get rid of houseflies naturally and quickly. All you need is an apple and a few whole cloves. Pierce the cloves into the apples all around and then leave it near the place that you have found to have a lot of flies. During the summer as the number of flies generally increases you can place these apples with the cloves in strategic places, like near windows, doors or on the table, kitchen counter. This will surely be instrumental in getting rid of flies in the house. Since these flies are attracted to light you can use two easy home remedies to get rid of flies. Put off all the lights in the house with the exception of one room; be sure to pick a small room like a bathroom or a short corridor. You will notice that the flies move towards that one room with the light and tend to fix themselves on the ceilings and walls. This could be a good time to use a swatter and swat the flies or else you could also use some soapy water. In a glass mix some soap and lather up some foam. With great care try you could then go towards the flies on the ceiling and try to cover them with the glass. If you are able to do this you will notice that in order to escape the fly with fly straight into the soapy water and drown. Though this is a painstaking task it is a slow but operative way to get rid of flies in the house. Apart from this the ultra violet trap is also a good way to get rid of flies quickly. These UV traps attract the flies and as they near the trap they are electrified and killed.
This UV trap is useful not just for flies but also one of the beneficial home remedies to get rid of roaches and mosquitoes. Other than these home remedies for getting rid of flies, if you face a big swarm of flies on a regular basis then you can also ask for professional help for using insecticides. Insecticides are very useful and effective but in a home set up it can be every risky. Therefore it should be used only as one’s last option. But on the whole cleanliness and perfect hygiene is the key to how to get rid of flies in the house through home remedies. Make sure your surroundings are clean and that that you are able to seal all entry points of the flies. This is the most important home remedy for flies and therefore a safeguard against communicable diseases.

We found a product from builders called fly trap, doesn't smell too good. But it's for outside.
No flies in our home....
