Moving Tips: Getting rid of flying insects

Getting rid of flies can be difficult.

Getting rid of flies can be difficult.

Your new home may still have pests to deal with, and they can be a significant problem. If you notice that your home has flies after your moving company brings your belongings, there may be some things you will want to do to make sure that this doesn't continue.

If you have fruit flies in your home, it is important that you make sure there is no food - especially fruit and vegetables - out on your counters. Once you do this, create a trap with vinegar and dish soap. By getting a bowl and putting a few drops of dish soap in it, this will not only attract the flies, but it will catch them and take care of your problem quickly.

Another option, especially when you have larger flies, is to use fly tape. This can be helpful, as flies are prone to go to these strips, and they won't be able to move once attached. Make sure that the strips are spread out and that you won't walk into them, as they can be difficult to remove from clothing.

Keep your windows shut during this process, as the flies may be entering your home through these areas. This can be vital, and you may get rid of much of the insect problems in your home by doing this.

Don't be afraid of spiders that are in your home. While it may seem counter-productive to the previous point, spiders actually help kill unwanted insects in the home. Whether you have flies or other insects that make you uncomfortable, it is a good idea to let the spiders roam, unless you are feeling immediately threatened by them.
