13. Cayenne Pepper

This is a natural way to kill flies, not just repel them. Mix some cayenne pepper and water in a spray bottle. Shake well and spray any fly you see. This kills them in a few seconds. Be careful not to spray the mixture in your eyes, and wash your hands well after using.


14. Cucumbers

If flies like your garbage can, cut a few slices of cucumber and put them on top of the trash. Flies don’t like cucumber and will go somewhere else. You will need to replace the cucumber slices every few days, but that’s a small price to pay to be free from flies!


15. Apple Cider Vinegar

This is another substance that flies seem to like, so you can trap them in it. Put a few inches of apple cider vinegar in a bowl. Add some surface tension so that flies don’t escape by putting a few drops of dishwashing soap on top. Flies come for the aroma, but they get caught in the soap and drown.


16.  Turn on the fans
