  • Keep doors and windows closed at all times unless there are screens. Put that twirly sticky paper that hangs from ceiling in several spots and get a fly swatter and swat swat swat.

  • You can hang either ziploc bags with water or get glass jars and put some water in them and hang them outside and outside your doors and windows. Flies dont like them. They are a deterrent and wont come inside.

  • - don't know if this might work. But I've seen plastic bags filled with waster hanging from the ceiling in a couple of houses. They said that flies get attracted by the reflections in the water. IDK somebody??

  • Skin-so-Soft from Avon. I wipe our doorways with a rag soaked in it, once a week, and SELDOM have them I also use it as fly repellent on my horses.

  • i got a oil in a health shop called Citronella oil put a good few drops in some water and spray around the door frame, also you can use it in a oil burner and is the best insect repellent that i have found.
