Why do flies come to your house?

And the worst part is that they managed to get in, but they rarely manage to come out.
To prevent it from coming in, you have to understand why they are there? There are two kinds of flies. There are house flies and fruit flies. The first are there because you have left food lying around and they are decomposing. They come to many above to feed. It is therefore necessary to be careful to clean the dishes, the leftover food and to close your trash can.
The second kind of flies come home to feed on the sugar from ripe fruits or the sugar present in your home. They may be attracted to old apricots or leftover soda in a glass. To prevent this from happening, put your fruit in a covered fruit basket. And when you drink a drink with sugar, a soda or a juice, remember to clean your glasses well. A splash of water and you’re done.

Thereby, the flies will be attracted by the sugar and the honey, they will enter through the neck, but will no longer be able to get out. Moreover, with their wings covered in honey, they will no longer be able to fly. Place several containers with this technique in your home.
