For flies, the best thing to do is repel flies with mint, eucalyptus, bay leaves and cloves. You can also create your own anti-fly sachets, wrap it in small pieces of cheesecloth and hang the sachets by windows or doors. Putting basil or clover near food can keep flies away as well. Prevention is necessary to get rid pests, continue the cure even you don’t see any pests at all. Cleanliness and hygiene is the key to get rid of them. It maybe hassles or not easy at all but it is better than having unwanted guests sharing in your house right? You should remember that they are the main cause of severe illness at home so you really should get rid of them especially when you have kids at home.
