Scoop the poop, close the rubbish bins and don’t let flies breed
Did you know that a fly can lay up to 3000 eggs in a space of a few weeks? Because animal excrement and garbage are excellent breeding media, house flies, can transmit disease pathogens.
It has been shown that each house fly can easily carry over one million bacteria on its body.
Some of the disease shown to be transmitted by house flies to humans are: dysentery, diarrhoea , salmonella, typhoid fever, traveller’s diarrhoea and cholera.
Flies have incredible sense of smell. Scientists discovered that flies can smell meat from 7 kms away. So don’t leave food lying around. Close your rubbish bins tightly and scoop dog faeces on a daily basis to prevent flies from breeding.
Try lavender oil or plant fresh basil on your window ledge
Put a few drops of Lavender Oil on an ordinary small piece of typing paper. Flies seem to HATE lavender! You can also try planting some basil plants in a pot and placing it on the window ledge. Flies move away because of the aromatic scent of the basil plant.
Use fly papers
