shoo flies-- quit bothering me
they wont go away---- i dont know what else to do. We got rid of the adults, now weve had the baby flies-- they hang out in the kitchen, we CLEAN the kitchen and they must hide cause they come right back. We take out the trash everyday and we dont have any open windows or anything. could it be our disposile (sp?)??? Thats the ONLY thing i can think of. We have thrown away all containers we think they may live in. We dont keep any open food or drinks out. We throw away all poopy dipes right away.

I did get some bleach so clean with this time-- Will Bleach make them go away????

Re: shoo flies-- quit bothering me
Is it possible that the seals around the doors and windows aren't exact? That's why we get flies, bc we rent and they put in THE cheapest thing they could and they weren't sealed properly...and we have ferrets, so they flies stick around. Good luck! :goodvibes:

Re: shoo flies-- quit bothering me
well we only have 1 door leading outside and i cant seal it or i wouldnt be able to get in and out, LOL. the windows i cant seal either of i wouldnt be able to get them open. But no cold air feels like its coming in from outside that would lead me to believe the seal is bad.

Re: shoo flies-- quit bothering me
someone told me to hang a bag of water with a penny in it and that will do something. not sure if it just keeps them away or what. also are they house flies or like fruit flies, double check your garbage disposal keep fruit in the fridge and get apple cider put it in a bowl cover with plastic wrap and poke holes in it they will be attracted to the smell and then get stuck
