Flies are pests that can make a nest inside your home. They can enter your home through a variety of openings and look for a place to lay their eggs. Their favorite places to lay their eggs are kitchen garbage bins and dirty drains. These areas have rotting food that flies can feed on. Fortunately, they won’t stay inside your home long. A fly may stay inside for two to four weeks before they leave.
The best way to prevent flies from nesting in your home is to eliminate their food sources. Flies tend to be attracted to rotting and fermented items, and so you should take special care to remove these sources of food. Additionally, flies are attracted to foods that are left on your counter or in the fridge.
Flies can also invade your home by landing on dead animals. The female flies will rush over to the carcass to lay their eggs. Even worse, carnivorous blow flies will find a way inside to feed on the rotting flesh.
You can also try using insect traps to prevent fly infestations. Fly paper, insect zappers, and disposable hanging fly traps are all available in the market. Additionally, you can clean your trash and dispose of rotting food to get rid of flies in your home.
