We've got bl**dy loads atm. We don't leave food out, the bin's emptied regularly, it's (fairly) clean in there. Can't use sprays, don't think I could cope with fly paper (urgh!). Anyone got one of those zapper things? Any good?
i swoosh them out with a kitchen towel. actually hit a couple the other night and they were laying on the floor twitching so i stood on them. they went crunch and one got stuck to my shoe and i had to scream for dp to come and remove it <<<shudder>>>
we have a sort of electric tennis racket (from Lakeland of course [wink}) which will clear the room in a few sweeps. It sizzles up the flies which can then be brushed into the bin. Works a treat on mossies too.
I have sprayed teatree oil in water around the doors and windows. seems to be working ok and all doors and windows are open. they also don't like febreeze too much- (although i know it is the devils perfume!)and full of nasty chemicals
