Everyone hates flies – they are annoying and gross, and besides being pests, they can also carry diseases such as dysentery, typhoid and diarrhea. Flies are a dipteral (two-winged) insect with more than 1.2 million species that grow in size as they age. The house fly is known as Musca Domestica and has been known to cause different infections.

House flies usually infest dirty areas and they especially like garbage and feces. Left out food also attracts flies, and areas with shrubbery and thick vegetation are ideal for these insects. Besides smearing them on your walls, there is a simple solution that will get rid of flies in your home forever.

All you need is an empty spray bottle, 10 drops of detergent, 1 cinnamon stick, a cup of white vinegar and a cup of water. Just mix everything in the spray bottle and spray the mixture on the surface frequented by flies and on the insects themselves – in just a short time they will fall down to the ground and the mixture will keep them away from your home for good.

In order to get rid of flies, you should always keep your home clean and use a good quality disinfectant which will keep surfaces in your home clean for a long time. As garbage bins are ideal for flies, keep that area clean and take out the trash regularly. You can also put a lid on the bin in order to keep flies away from the garbage.
