Why remove house flies? A horror story

Once an aunt of my friend had a small cut on the tiny finger of her left leg. Just a small cut, nothing to worry about.

But a lingering pain was there and the pain was not fading but rather it was going strong.

And the small wound was turning into a swollen wound with fluid coming out.

She was rushed to the hospital and later it was found that there was larva of a house fly in that wound.

And that was successfully operated.

But unfortunately she left us that night due to some other physical illness. She was above 60 years of age at that time.

This is why you should let any flies sit on your open wounds, no matter how small the wound is.

Also since those flies carry several germs and bacterias, keep them away from your food items too.

Either keep the food items in the fridge or covered with another dish.


Why am I suddenly finding flies in my house?

Check if you have dead animals (like rats) inside of your house. Flies are attracted to those. If not then you should check your kitchen and dining to check open foods. And lastly check for open dustbins. And spray citronella, lavender, eucalyptus oil to keep flies away.

What smell will keep flies away?

Eucalyptus, lavender, citronella smells are good to repel most small insects and it will keep the flies away also.

What is the best spray to kill flies?

Apart from commercial sprays you should try bayer solfac, TATA sentry and HIT spray in Indian homes. With these and by keeping your home clean, you will be able to kill and repel house flies.

How do I find the source of flies in my house?

Usually in Indian homes, you will mostly find flies that are coming inside from outside. And inside of a Indian home you will find the house flies near food items and dustbin. If you keep your food covered, close the dustbin lid and maintain a clean house, you will get rid of house flies.

What is a good homemade fly spray?

Use a mix of citronella oil and lavender oil. These strong smells will keep the fly away. But for quicker, better action always use a chemical based fly killer spray.

How to get rid of drain flies in the house?

You need to spray strong chemical insecticides into the drain to get rid of them completely. You should also pour down finlyes into the drain also. These all will make the bathroom or your house not compatible for them. You can also try pouring salt, baking soda in equal amounts with hot water. This will also kill the larva of the drain flies.

How to get rid of flies and mosquitoes in the house?

There are many insect killers which will kill all the flies and mosquitoes in your hosue. I usually spray solfac or TATA sentry once or twice a week and that does the job. Other than this you can also spray lemon eucalyptus, citronella oil and other oil from lavender. These will keep the flies away.

How to remove house flies from room?

To remove flies from your room, burn citronella sticks or use camphor so the flies stay away. Occasionally you can spray chemical based insect killers also but do not spray near food or bed.

How to stop flies coming into your house?

In India the best you can do is put a small amount of camphor in plates with water around open windows and doors. For the kitchen you can spray lavender, citronella oil to stop flies coming in. Other than this chemical fly killers like TATA sentry will help.
