Pests, bugs and flies can become a really big problem for everybody in the summers; because it’s their time of mating and reproducing. Generally all these small creatures have short cycle which also means rapid reproductive cycle. Since they have a short time to live, they reproduce as much as they can and in huge numbers.
In order to get rid of flies and other pests, people usually choose the fly spray as an effective method of eliminating flies. However, is fly spray a safe method? Was using chemical sprays ever safe? Certainly not. Sure the fly sprays don’t affect us right away like it affects the flies and other insects. But when fly spray is used, we do inhale it and repeated use of it enables the toxic chemicals to accumulate in our body till it reaches an amount when it will affect us.
Perhaps the use of a professional fly spray could be an option if you notice a big fly infestation somewhere, either in or outside your home or in the barns and farms. But this should be a one-time measure, or should be done once in several months. And make sure when the fly spray is being used, no humans, especially children and pets should come in breathing range of it.
There are other options which could be tried out, both on big scale and on small scale to control or eliminate accumulating flies and bugs. There are several natural ways to do so. For example the best way to keep you protected from flies and bugs is to prevent such conditions which invite them. Flies and bugs are usually in a habit of living and nesting in unhygienic conditions. Keep your home and the outside area clear of any decaying or rotting material. All the leftover food which could rot should be thrown away sealed in plastic bags.
Instead of using a fly spray there are natural cures available too. On a large scale the introduction of parasitoid wasp greatly reduces the fly population and normal household items can create effective fly repellents and fly traps.
