    "Couldn't Be Happier!"
    My house had been infested with spiders. We tried the sprays that you get from the store and nothing worked. We decided to call Family Home Pest Control and they helped us get back to living without spiders in our bathtubs.

    The technician who came to my home was so helpful. First I thought I had large black mice but turned out they were baby rats…

How to Keep Flies Away 

There are a few things you can do to keep flies away. One of the most important things you can do is keep your garbage can clean and empty regularly. Flies are attracted to garbage, so make sure you keep your garbage can clean and covered. You should also make sure to keep your compost bin clean and covered. Flies are also attracted to pet waste, so make sure you keep your pet's waste picked up and put it in the trash. If you have a compost bin, you can put pet waste in there.

You can also keep flies away by:

  • Keeping your kitchen sink and counters clean
  • Keeping your dishes clean and putting them away as soon as you are done eating
  • Keeping your garbage can covered
  • Keeping your pet's waste picked up
  • Keeping your yard clean and picking up pet waste

It is also a good idea to keep your yard and home free of stagnant water. Stagnant water is an ideal environment for flies to lay their eggs. If you notice stagnant water in your yard, get it removed as soon as possible.
