When house flies take over the family room, it turns relaxing family time into an unpleasant experience. To keep the room feeling clean and inviting, you want to keep all insects out of the room, including flies that continuously buzz around the room and bother your family members. Instead of using chemical bug sprays and repellents that could harm your family members, use natural repellents.
Things You'll Need
- Fly paper
- Eucalyptus oil
Hang fly paper in an inconspicuous area of the family room, if possible. While the fly paper is often unattractive, it is effective in catching and getting rid of your fly problem.
Place a few bowls around the family room. Put a few crushed mint leaves in each bowl, or pour about 20 drops of eucalyptus oil into each bowl. All these products work as natural deterrents that keep the flies away from your family room.
Place basil leaves on plates of food or around plates of food. Basil is another natural deterrent.
