Flies can invade your home or business all of a sudden. These bacteria-carrying pests are creepy and annoying to have around. And keeping them away can be an exercise of futility at times. Yet fly control in your Singapore property is a must – and should be done safely and effectively.
Before you take the DIY course to get rid of those pesky flies, here’s the truth about those myths about fly control.

Aromatic plants like basil and lavender are thought to repel insects. Plants have natural defence mechanisms to protect themselves from insects. Yet there’s no sufficient studies that can support the claim for their insect repellent properties. Pets and children could at risk for the side effects of having these plants around.
2. Hang a bag of water with a penny in the doorway.
It is believed that placing water inside a bag with a copper penny can create a prismatic effect on the fly’s vision. This dizzying sight keep the flies at bay. This is a misconception on fly control that you can easily find out for yourself. Just hang a bag of water with a penny and observe.
3. Anyone can spray chemicals to kill flies.
The presence of multitude of fly repellent products in the market encourage people to do fly extermination themselves. It is true that anyone can do it but does not mean that it will be effective every time.
