How to Kill House Flies

Sometimes you have the occasional house fly that annoys you. Other times though it is a more serious problem. There are house flies everywhere and it is more of an infestation problem that you need to deal with. Learn how to deal with this problem so that you can get rid of house flies.

The first step is to clean up and get rid of the breeding ground of the house flies. If you have an infestation, there is something in the house that they are breeding in. Get rid of any garbage. Clean up pet litter like the cat litter box. Throw away old food in the pantry. Seal up all containers of food. Wipe down all counters. The cleaner everything is the less likely it is that the flies can continue to breed.

To get rid of these flies manually put a little bit of rubbing alcohol and water in a spray bottle and spray this towards flies that you see in the home. This does work, but you probably would rather have something that worked automatically for you without having to get rid of them yourself.

You need to make some traps. Take hot water and sugar and blend these together. Put this into small jars and cover them with plastic wrap. Poke holes in the plastic wrap so the flies can get in. This should attract quite a few house flies. Do this day after day until the flies are gone. The more traps you use the more you will catch. Be sure to empty out the trap each day and refill them.

Another trick is to put something like rotting fruit inside the oven. The flies will be attracted to it and all be in the oven. Shut the oven and turn it on and it will kill the flies. Clean up the oven afterwards.
