Once a problem has been identified, there are simple ways you can get rid of flies and reduce their numbers on your property, such as:
You could, of course, also take these preventative steps to help curb the onset of flies:
Control moisture - fix leaky taps and blocked drains where water can gather. Flies need moisture to multiply.
Keep food covered - any type of food, even crumbs, can attract flies and encourage them to lay eggs nearby. Leftovers should be carefully covered up. Their contact with your food is also main cause of food contamination.
Stay hygienic - keep your bins, sinks and food areas clean.
Cover entry points - fit fly screens to windows, keep windows and doors shut at night and consider installing a fly killer unit.
Bird feeders - keep bird feeders clean and remove bird food before dusk.
Remove clutter - eliminate clutter inside the house and in the garden. Messy sites could be a potential breeding site.
