  • Essential oils with a pungent odor (mint, citrus fruits, laurel, eucalyptus, cloves, lavender, peppermint, etc.) are widely used. Most often, an aroma lamp is used with their application. The smell diffuses fast throughout the room, covering even the most inaccessible corners and evicting these annoying guests. You can also lubricate window and door frames with these oils.

Velcro traps

A very popular Velcro tape can easily be made independently from improvised materials. For its base, you need thick paper that does not get wet. Strips of the required size are cut out of it, covered with a sticky composition and hung in places where insects accumulate.

Electric shock trap

Another method of fighting flies, based on attracting insects to a light source. The light bulb is wrapped with aluminum wire connected to a source of electricity. Thus, the flies fly into the light and, falling into the zone of action of the electric current, die.
