A simple way for how to get rid of flies is to use fly tape and strips to get rid of cluster flies, get rid of black flies, and get rid of white flies. Fly paper is inexpensive and easily placed in areas away from kids and pets. The strips to get rid of house flies are sticky on one side and have window adhesive on the other, since flies are attracted to light.
You can also easily repel flies naturally and get rid of flies with organic and natural methods. You might want to get rid of flies with a DIY fly trap for kitchen flies like drain flies and fruit flies. These flies are attracted by the warm, wet kitchen drain and the more humid climate in a kitchen. Dealing with fruit flies is especially important because they are around your food and food prep areas.
The first step in how to get rid of flies is to not let food sit out, and clean up all prep areas, including the sink, because the flies are attracted to any organic matter. Keep fruit covered or refrigerated. Wash dishes right away, and take garbage outside that has decaying matter in it such as fruit rinds and pieces of meat.
The way to get rid of fruit flies is to treat the area every day with a trap filled with wine, fruit juice, sugar water, or a mixture of water plus dishwashing liquid and red wine vinegar. You can use an empty plastic milk container or a disposable cup with cling wrap poked with holes and secured with a rubber band. The best method for how to get rid of drain flies is to set several traps, but don’t set them in the immediate area where the flies are seen. Set them several feet away, and use more than one trap. Other natural methods for how to get rid of flies are to fill a spray bottle with water and ten drops of lemongrass oil, and use this spray when you clean. You can also put some basil leaves in your fruit bowls to repel flies.
