Is there a natural way to get rid of Flies ??

My friend has a problem of them getting in her house - they have checked all around their house /attic and outside - nothing seems to be dead or gross in any area but they still seem to be around - she has animals and a child so it would be best to have a natural solution

  • Lavender, for some reasons many bugs can't stand the stuff. we planted it outside our front door and under the windows of our house and no more bugs! We also got a spray bottle, filled it with water and have been getting them and then killing them.

  • Fly paper works pretty good. We get allot of fly's here due to the field of cows down the street. Fly paper keep em in check for us.

  • Fly traps that hang from the ceiling and I've heard of ppl hanging ziplock bags full of water from their doorways with a penny in them (I'm really not sure the method behind this, but they tell me it works.)

  • I know with fruit flies you leave dishes of water and soap out and they drown

  • I'd go with planting lavender around your home or keeping it in pots around the interior of your home.
