When it’s summer time, there are a few things that REALLY BUG me:

If you don’t want to be infested with maggots, then the obvious thing to do is prevent the source: Flies. Yes, preventing maggots also means not having a maggot breeding ground, but, because maggots come from flies, it would make sense to try and prevent the flies in the first place.
Quite a few people have issues with flies. To give you an example, here are some of the things people search for when looking for help getting rid of flies:
- flies in my house where are they coming from
- what can I use to get rid of flies
- house flies infestation
- home remedies for getting rid of flies
- why do I have a ton of flies in my house
- infested with house flies
So, here are some things that are so incredibly obvious, and yet some people don’t do them.
Leave your trash can lid closed at all times:
This might sound really obvious, but if a fly has access to rotting food, most likely found in trash cans, then they have good feeding and breeding grounds. Don’t give flies access to your old food.
Clean up your animal droppings:
Once again, this might be obvious, but remember, it might not even be YOUR animal’s droppings. Does your neighbour’s cat soil your garden?
Ensure you have no pooling of stagnant water anywhere:
This is cause for a whole host of things, not just flies, but it’s good enough to try and prevent flies
Make sure your drains are covered:
There are such things as “drain flies“, so keeping your drains as clean as possible and covered will help prevent flies.
Please leave some comments regarding things you noticed that prevented flies… (And I’m not talking about hiring an exterminator that will clear out your area). If you’d like to see what I mean by comments, check out my post about getting rid of maggots here…
