Are you noticing more than the acceptable amount of monsoon flies buzzing around your house lately? Well, you are not wrong; it’s this beautiful rainy season to be blamed! With so much moisture around and humid temperatures, it gives a perfect environmental condition for monsoon flies to breed. Take preventive measures and learn the best ways to keep flies away.
Rain flies aren’t harmful, but they are indeed very unpleasant and annoying at the same time when they invade your home. It’s best to keep flies away as they are capable of spreading diseases like malaria, typhoid, cholera, dysentery, and gastroenteritis.
Rain flies pick up bacteria from waste materials and garbage and transfer these bacteria from their feet to surfaces they sit on. They can sit anywhere; your food, clothes, face, hands etc. If thinking about this made you feel sick then imagine how it would be to see a group of these monsoon flies enjoying your food on the dining table? Terrible, isn’t it?
Hence, here are a few best ways to keep flies away this rainy season :
Dispose Waste regularly and at a proper place away from your house to keep flies away.
Keep the garbage bin covered at all times. Garbage is any fly’s favourite breeding spot, so diminish this to reduce their number. Ensure the garbage bin is always covered and there is an outer bag to add the trash in the can so that it doesn’t stick to the trash can, which attracts monsoon flies.
Cover your food always. Freshly cut fruits, cooked food, meat etc. attract monsoon flies a lot more than covered stuff. Hence, ensure all your food is covered at all times.
Keep indoor plants properly and trimmed well. Also, ensure you do not over water them and discard any excess water or dead plant matter.
Maintain your pets. Make sure you give a regular bath to your pets and clean their waste properly. If they enter your house from outside, clean their paws which might bring in the dirt that attracts rain fly.
Clean every area of the house with disinfectant. Focus majorly on areas like your kitchen, dining table, bathrooms etc. as these areas are mostly moist and act as a magnet to rain fly. Using chlorine-based cleaners is best. This works as a quick fly repellent when they get in contact with rain fly.
Using window nets is yet another measure to prevent to keep flies away from entering your house. Window screens not only stop the flies from invading your house but also help you enjoy the cool breeze at all times.
Using insect repellent sprays and particularly those which are best as a fly repellent or fly killer, are one of the measures to keep monsoon flies at bay. But one should make sure to keep the fly repellents and fly killers away from food, children, and pets.
Invest in a fly killer is the best way to keep flies away. It attracts flies with its ultraviolet light and this fly killer instantly electrocutes any rain fly. These electric fly killers are very suitable for indoor usage.
Drain extra water from your house or room. Moisture is one of those things that flies love the most. Clean any drop of water in your room or shower and do not leave any wet clothes lying on the floor. Don’t leave any container of water open otherwise it will attract more monsoon flies.
