Why The Flies?

why the flies

Many Wyndham residents are taking to social media to complain regarding what some say is a larger than normal infestation of flies.

Signs of fly problems include clusters of flies around light fixtures, gutters, mulch piles and garbage bins.

Large infestations can be attributable to areas where there are large amounts of grass clippings decomposing, also increasing numbers of households are using outdoor compost bins.

Some experts also say that cooler autumn temperatures drive flies indoors in search of food and warmth.

If you want to get rid of flies naturally you can try the following methods:

  1. Herbs and flowers can be planted both in your garden and outside to keep flies away from your house.
  2. Vinegar and dish soap. A mixture of vinegar and dish soap can help you trap flies. 
  3. Cayenne pepper and water sprayed around the house. 
  4. Venus flytrap.
  5. Natural trap bait
