Cloves are pleasantly aromatic for us but are not liked by flies. They cannot stand the scent of this spice that is extensively used for culinary purposes. Cloves are particularly effective in repelling house flies. In this remedy for flies elimination, cloves are used with lemon, yet another smell that flies are not fond of.
- Lemon- 2
- Cloves- 25-50
- Cut the lemons into halves.
- Now poke 6-12 cloves into each of the lemon halves. Poke with the pointed part of the clove so that the bud remains upwards.
- Arrange these cloves poked lemon halves onto a plate.

You may also wrap some cloves in a cheesecloth or a muslin bag to hang them in flies infected areas.
