  • You probably have something lost somewhere in your kitchen. Clean really well, and open your house up so that they will fly out, or just kill them all. Make sure to clean down your drain, you could have lost peices of fruit down there.

  • Put peppermint oil or extract in a tiny spray bottle and spray around your doors about every 3 days or so. Flies don't like the smell.

  • Make sure you take all the garbage out. See if you can find out where they're coming from. Sometimes they hang around the drain of the kitchen sink. If you see them there pour some bleach down the sink.

  • I once heard that apple cider vingar will help. Put some in a cup and they will be attracted to it and drown. And of course to the things that the mom's mention above. Try to find where they are coming from (sink/lost fruit ect). I also have heard of the peppermint oil which should help future ones from coming in. I would do that one as well if you can.
