Are you sick of suffering from kitchen flies and want to get rid of them for good? 

Here are 7 tips to get rid of these annoying insects. 

1. Don't leave dirty dishes

Do your dishes immediately because flies love dishes in the sink with food scraps. If you have a dishwasher, put your dishes in it immediately to avoid attracting these insects.

2. Don't leave food lying around

Avoid leaving food in your kitchen on the countertop so as not to attract midges. You should put what you can put in the refrigerator and cover the rest with cling film to protect it.

3. Fruit flies

 Some fruits will attract these kinds of insects. To repel flies from your fruits, you can use this natural trick! Put your fruits in a container or bowl and add cloves of garlic. The scent will do the trick perfectly!

4. Don't accumulate trash

Try to get rid of the trash regularly to avoid flies. If it is still early to throw away the trash in the bin, you should make sure to cover with a lid so that it does not become a nest of insects that lay and reproduce in it.

You also have to clean the bins regularly to avoid insects coming in it. 

5. Take care of your plants 

If your plants are in bad shape, you should get rid of them so that they do not attract these kind of insects. 

6. Check your pipes

Due to the high level of humidity, pipes are a good breeding ground for midges as well as bacteria and molds. Try to clean and disinfect pipes to eliminate the insects. Baking soda and white vinegar are two good cleaning and deodorizing alternatives!


7. Make a liquid trap

To trap the unwanted flies, prepare a bowl in which you put white vinegar and a few drops of dishwashing liquid. Put this bowl in a strategic place in the kitchen to attract midges by the smell of the mixture and make them trap.
