Ok have solved the problem the ants in the house.

How do you stop the flies coming in??

Don't get me started Sue. My neighbour kindly feeds my cat but insists on throwing left over food in the bin. The bluebottles are like those things (can't remember the name) that everyone tooted in the World Cup. Have you tried a beaded curtain by the kitchen door?

Gosh yes! You've reminded me that my neighbours used to have a curtain of plastic strips that stopped the flies coming in Gerry.

Don't get me started either. Med Basil is "supposed" to keep them away and I can be seen chasing flies, basil plant in hand or I threaten to squash them. Does it work? In a word no. Curtain might work at door but there is always a window. I'm sure I put the same fly out of the window 3 times--it must have flown round the house and in again. And they always go to my front window, hit against it and leave poo marks. How about one of those flashy light things from the chippy? Pesky varmints. (Also a worry if you have rabbits).

Pesky Flies !!!!

Don't get me started either !!
They are driving me demented !!!
Problems with living in the country .

We have mozzie nets up at the windows upstairs and the doors downstairs.....
and the little b*****rs still get through. We also have an electronic fly bat (Brilliant) which uses two batteries and has a button with which you swat and zap them....totally satisfying !
Found the best way to catch them is to "scoop them up" and catch them mid-air.....then you put their little dead bodies in the bin..............and no I don't have any conscience about doing it !!

I will search for a curtain because Teleaf wanders in and out to nibble. The window is closed. I wonder do Lakeland stock them?

Sue, have a look in Lidl that is where we got ours from, they had some a few weeks ago, especially for Velux Window with a little zip that you could open to get to the "handle"

Yes we had our door curtains from Lakeland, they did window blinds as well. Would think they still stock them. x

Everyone here has fly screens on all the windows and most doors have screen doors as well. Couldn't imagine not having them now, but they were never considered necessary when I lived in UK.

Thanks Yummy,
fly nets/screen won't work for us. Our kitchen is on the front of the house, sitting room on the back. So have to go through the sitting room or garage to enter the kitchen.
We leave the doors from the sitting room onto the garden open for the dogs to come in & out so a screen on the door won't work.
Not sure a curtain would last due to the dogs plus kids running in & out.

RE- FLY CURTAINS

Our well made Lakeland fly curtains stand up well to kids and dogs. My sister has them too on patio doors with lots of kids/dog. The heavy weights at the bottom of each length means they fall back into place after kids/dogs rush in and out. not cheap though, she had some cheapo ones from ebay and they were useless. x

Sue and Yummy, we use a KAPO machine which plugs into the power socket similar to those for mozzies, one tablet a day for Mouche and the flies drop dead. It does something to the way they breathe, or something. Doesn't stop them coming in but they don't last long once they do
