House fly control requires a commitment to vigilant sanitation. Remove trash regularly and use well-sealing garbage receptacles to get rid of house flies around waste bins. Clean up pet waste immediately. Use fine mesh screens on doors and windows to prevent fly entry.

The one thing that doesn’t work so well? Spraying. You’ve just got to eliminate the things flies eat and need to breed. And then use a fly swatter or sticky fly strips.
