Flies are found almost everywhere people live. They lay their eggs on animal feces, garbage, and rotting organic material.

There are actually so many safe and easy ways to prevent infestations or get rid of them when fly infestations happen in your own house. Flies may only live 10-25 days but can lay hundreds of eggs in that time. Here’s how you can get rid of house flies without having to spend your days with too many works.

1) Calamansi + Cloves

Slice the calamansi in half. Stuffed one clove into half of calamansi. Then, placed them all over the house. You can use any type of citrus fruit like lemons, oranges or even limes. It really doesn’t matter. Just use something strong. Flies are entirely uninterested in the scent of cloves and citrus.

2) Cucumber

Slice the while cucumber. Then, placed them all over the house where you do not want any flies there. This is because flies also famously hate the smell of cucumbers.

3) Candle

Light up a candle. Then, place the candle where there is an abundance of flies at. The heat of the candle could really irritate them and eventually keep them away from flying around in your own house.

4) Lemongrass

Blend as much as lemongrass that you want to use. Then, add water into the blended lemongrass. Sieve the mixture so that you only obtain the liquid. Next, insert the liquid into a spray bottle. Finally, spray the liquid towards the place that you do not want flies to come. Lemongrass has strong insect repellent properties. You can use lemongrass to make a fly repellent spray that also works as a room freshener.

5) Plastic + Coin

Fill the plastic with water. Then, hang the water-filled plastic at a place that you do not want any flies to come. Other than water, place a coin inside the water-filled plastic as well. The fly bases his movement on light and the refracted light coming through the water in the plastic bag confuses the fly causing him to move on to a place that is easier on the eyes.

6) CD

Hang CD all over the places in your house where you do not want flies to come. The light refraction from the CD help to keep flies away.

High humidity levels can make a house smell musty. Install a dehumidifier and keep the humidity level at 50%. This can keep the air nice and dry, and hopefully prevent any mold from growing in your space. Make sure the humidity level is never over 60% because that is when mildew and mold can start to thrive.

3) Run Ceiling Fan

Circulating air can help get rid of musty smells. Sometimes musty smells coming from the air being too humid and still. Turn on your ceiling fan to dry out the air and get rid of the smell. If you don’t have a ceiling fan, keep a box fan running where the smell is particularly strong, or keep a few throughout your home. These can ventilate your space just as well.

4) Absorb Odor With Baking Soda

Charcoal briquettes are another option to absorb odors. Place them in trays throughout your home or set them on a shelf or table to get rid of any musty smell.
