I saw the 1st blow fly for the season…..yuck, I hate flies. Any tips on keeping the flies out of the house, other than keeping the doors closed haha. Every year we try so hard to not let them in but every year there they are hovering around our lights.

  • Yes they always seem to appear. Another endorsement for lavender here!


  • I’ll be trying the lavender tip for sure!


  • Never heard of the lavender tip before, I going to try it too!


  • We have a guy that comes out and sprays all around our house inside and out.
    Last year was the first year we had him and will be getting him again this year around late november early december time. It was great we had 1 spider and 3 flies in all summer im still shocked now just thinking about it.
    I wasnt so sure it was going to work

    • Thanks for the idea, I’ll try the lavender first then if tht fails I’ll call in the experts :-)


  • 1/2 a cut lemon with cloves stuck in it is supposed to repel flies out doors and at BBQ’s, restaurants often have them on their tables.
    I love lavender it’s calming and soothing but flies do not think so. Hang dried springs at doors or windows or use lavender oil wiped around frames.
    or invest in a few Venus fly traps (the plant type) and let nature take it’s course. yummm. te he. Good Luck.:-)

    • Love the lavender idea, might have to go around to my sisters and pinch some :-)


  • I’ve had the Mortein out for a week now, I just wish people would close doors behind them.
