Keeping this in consideration, how do you know if you have a fly infestation?
If you spot maggots in your home, it's a sure sign of a fly infestation. Female flies look for moist, dark areas in which to lay their eggs. They'll lay them in trash, rotting food and manure. When flies invade your home, they may lay eggs in leftover food on the counter or on feces in the litter box.
Similarly, what smell will keep flies away? Cinnamon – use cinnamon as an air freshner, as flies hate the smell! Lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint and lemongrass essential oils – Not only will spraying these oils around the house create a beautiful aroma, but they will also deter those pesky flies too.
Similarly, you may ask, why do flies come in the house?
They both look for disgusting places to lay their eggs; house flies prefer animal feces or garbage, while blow flies lean toward the bodies of dead animals. When the eggs were laid in or near your house, they often fly around inside to seek food and a place to lay more eggs.
Where do flies lay their eggs in a house?
House Flies Homeowners typically find house fly eggs in moist, decaying organic material like trash, grass clippings, or feces. Elongated and pale in color, they appear in clusters and hatch quickly after being laid by the female fly.
