How to Get Rid of Flies

Flies are a menace! Especially the lazy ones that just won’t move no matter how many times you wave your hands to make them go away. Jumia House has for you four ways to get rid of those pesky insects. These methods are perfect for the ones who hate to use chemicals.

  1. Cloves and Lemon: Flies are known to hate the smell of cloves. When you combine cloves with lemon, the smell is more potent and a good natural repellent. Get one lemon, cut it in half and stick the clove in the pulp of the lemon. Place the lemon on a table in your kitchen and voila! No more flies.
  2. Fly Trap: This is a DIY trap. You will need apple cider vinegar as well as liquid dish soap. Mix the apple cider vinegar and the liquid dish soap in a small bowl. The soap breaks the surface tension thereby sinking and trapping flies who come to eat.
  3. Fly Repellant Spray: You will need, two tablespoons of liquid dish soap, ten drops of peppermint essential oil, ten drops of lemongrass essential oil, a spray, and one cup of water. Mix the water and the liquid dish soap in the spray bottle, then add your essential oils. Shake the bottle to mix solution, once done, spray it all over your house. Spray your home every two weeks.
  4. Lavender Essential Oil: Lavender is also a potent fly repellent. You will need lavender essential oil, sponge, and a mason jar or any jar with a lid. Apply several drops of lavender oil on the sponge and put into the jar. Leave the jar closed till the next morning, then, you can open the jar and place in the part of the house where you need it. Bye Bye pesky flies!
