5 – BASIL 

Real repellents, basil plants are good allies for effectively getting rid of flies. If they give off a pleasant odor for us, on the contrary, they blow their nose and fear it! So place a plant on the edge of the window or directly in frequently used rooms and see the number of flies decrease significantly.

6 – APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

Just like the previous elements, the onion can prove valuable in combating the invasion of flies. Sliced ​​or in decoctions, onions can be placed on top of cabinets or on window sills. They can also be rubbed on the edges of the frames, on the outside, to discourage intruders from entering.
