How to get rid of Cluster Flies


Cluster flies are a common problem in homes during the fall and winter. While they are not harmful to humans, they can be a nuisance. There are a few things you can do to prevent cluster flies from entering your home, and a few methods you can use to get rid of them if they do.

Preventing Cluster Flies


  • Keep your windows and doors closed. Cluster flies are attracted to light, so they will enter your home if you leave doors and windows open.
  • Install screens on your doors and windows. This will help to keep the flies out.
  • Seal up any cracks or openings in your home where the flies might be getting in.
  • Clean up any food or garbage that might be attracting the flies.Getting Rid of Cluster Flies


Getting Rid of Cluster Flies


If you have cluster flies in your home, there are a few methods you can use to get rid of them:

  • Vacuum them up. This will help reduce the population in your home. Be sure to empty the vacuum bag often so that the flies don't have a chance to escape back into your home.
  • Use insecticide sprays. Be sure to follow the directions on the label carefully so that you don't end up harming yourself or your family members.
  • Make your own fly repellent by mixing together dish soap and water.
  • Call a professional pest control company. We will be able to help identify the source of the problem and eliminate the infestation quickly and efficiently.
