To chase away flies on certain occasions it becomes the first of desires. You know that fly that torments you while you are reading or resting on the sofa? What would you not do to chase it away? Well, let's see how it can be done. Excluding a priori the use of insecticide sprays that would pollute the air and, by depositing, also the objects around.
To chase away flies it is a need for many people at all latitudes. There housefly in fact it is widespread all over the world, it can become very annoying and poses a threat to hygiene. She is attracted by a series of things but above all by stagnation and certain smells, so the first things to check are the dustbin (you have closed the bucket well) and the composting in the garden (if done well it does not attract flies). Once this is done, let's see the natural anti-fly remedies.
Getting rid of flies: natural systems
The first natural anti-fly system, it seems trivial to say, is the mosquito net. Unsurpassed barrier if applied well to windows. Of course, installing mosquito nets can be a bit challenging, but once done they stay there.
Aromatic plants are a good helper. As with ants and mosquitoes, basil, rosemary, lavender and mint are a natural repellent.
If the problem is the kitchen, you can evaporate a little vinegar in a saucepan over low heat. The smell is not the best, but it can be in the kitchen.
Do you know why in some countries the window and door frames are painted blue and light blue? For an aesthetic fact, but also because these colors are not appreciated by flies, indeed they flee them.
In the summer you can use bouquets of anise and laurel placed near the doors and windows: they are an excellent system for chase away flies.
In the mushroom season, you can try a very ancient and somewhat particular system. It consists of putting the cap of an amanita muscaria (a toxic mushroom) in a bowl by pouring milk over it. Placed in the house (in a place that cannot be reached by children and pets), the smell literally makes flies escape. Of course to some this smell might seem like stink, so leave this system for last.
