From DIY to Professional: Finding the Best Fly Control Method for YouFrom DIY to Professional: Finding the Best Fly Control Method for You

You walk into your home and discover something unsavory: a fly infestation. Flies don’t just make unattractive house pests. They’re suspected of transmitting at least 65 diseases to humans.

Needless to say, you’re going to want to get rid of flies in your house as soon as possible. The question is, should you use DIY methods or hire a professional fly control company?

Depending on the size of your fly infestation, DIY methods may be fine. However, nothing is as effective as professional pest control. Read on to learn more about your options.

DIY Fly Control

If you’re someone who likes to break out the household ingredients and whip up solutions, there are a few DIY approaches to consider for fly control.

To tackle adult flies, mix a few tablespoons of vinegar (any kind will do, but we recommend apple cider vinegar) and a few drops of dish soap in a jar. In place of a lid, place a funnel (which you can make out of paper) in the opening of the jar.

To reduce the spread of new flies, get rid of any decaying organic material like rotting fruit. Dump a pot of boiling water down the drain to take care of any eggs or larvae that may be in your drains.

Store-Bought Solutions

If you’d rather not concoct your own solutions, you can always head to your nearest home improvement store. You can also find plenty of fly control products online.

Look for sticky traps or aerosol air sprays designed for flies. An all-purpose pest control product may help, but you may see better results using products made to trap and kill flies.

Some products use natural ingredients like eucalyptus or mint oil to repel flies, rather than chemicals. Always make sure you know what you’re releasing in your home, especially if you have pets or kids.

Professional Indoor Pest Control

There’s no better option than calling a pest control professional for a fly infestation. Professionals will not only address the current problem but also provide long-term pest management. Call your local pest control company for a quote to price compare your pest control options.

Pest management involves identifying the source of your fly infestation and eliminating it. For example, pest control professionals may seal up entry points like cracks in exterior walls. They may also spray fly repellants around your property to deter flies before they come inside.

Most importantly, pest control professionals will use all repellants the right way. Because many fly repellants have chemicals, safe application is a crucial part of protecting your indoor air quality.
