Nothing upsets me more than a fly buzzing around my house, it is even worse when there is more than one! Here are 8 ways to get rid of those pesky creatures.
1.Apple Cider Vinegar
Pour a bit of vinegar at the bottom of a container, and poke some holes through the lid (big enough for them to get through) Flies will get stuck in the jar!
2. Lavender Oil
This is a great natural way to get rid of flies. Flies do not like lavender. Rub some lavender around the entrances of your home. The lavender will prevent them from entering your house. I love this idea from Pro.
Mint is natures miracle plant. Not only is it great for your heath, but having potted mint around your home will repel flies also.
Apparently flies dislike Cayenne pepper as much as I do. Mix Cayenne pepper with water and spray it around your home. Idea from DIY Home Things.
Flies are attracted to wine, leave some out on your counter and watch them get stuck!
