In my Grandma's home the Floors used to be wiped with Brine( a Salt Solution).This helps reduce the constant hovering of Flies in the House.Add a fistful of Salt to a bucket full of Water and Dissolve well.When dissolved fully use this Solution to mop the Floors,Window Sills and Door Frames.

  • Thanks for the great timely tip. The flies have been real pests this summer. I have dogs and cats and I hate to use too many chemicals around the house. emoticon - by JOYCE62254
    I'm going to have to try this...we keep getting fly infestations and can't figure out where they come from! Our house is clean, garbage is kept in the garage, and yet, still there's always flies..... - by DARKFLAME2009
