  • You might have an opening somewhere that you don't know about. Both my parents house and my house is the same way, a ton of flies but we can't figure out where they're coming from. The only thing we can figure is that we must have some tiny little opening somewhere that we haven't found. As for getting rid of them, I just do the fly swatter and the sticky flypaper stuff.

  • The best things to do is do some massive spring cleaning on your house.. clean out all your cupboards and make sure everything is sealed.. replace garbage cans indoors.. and move the ones out doors away from the house... get a lot of fly strips.. and hope for the best..

    you can try getting some fly spray to spray around windows and doors and seams in rooms, but if you want to stay away from chemicals... do this as a last resort.
