Flies can be a nuisance, and once they’ve invaded your space, they can be difficult to get rid of. One effective method for repelling flies is by using incense. This natural repellent can help keep these pesky insects at bay.
In this article, we will explore the use of incense as an effective method for repelling flies.
We know that flies spread bacteria that causes sickness – a fly will land on garbage or something equally unpleasant in the street, then fly into your home and land on your food – and there are many ways to get rid of the flies from your house.
But some of these, like insect sprays can be harmful and allergenic, and despite the manufacturers giving their sprays pleasant floral names, none of them smell very good.
Fortunately incense also works as a great fly repellent. Flies have an excellent sense of smell, in fact houseflies have been proven to be able to detect smells from up to four miles away, so it is a matter of finding which incense the flies like least, and will act as a deterrent.
To understand how this works, we need to know that over time many plants have evolved their own natural insecticides, to keep bugs away.
When the essential oils are extracted from these plants and used to make incense, the insect repelling properties are active in the incense smoke.
One of the best known of these is patchouli, which has been used as an insect deterrent for centuries.
These are available as individual incense sticks or are sometimes found as a blend of several fragrances.
Burning some of these will guarantee the flies will stay away, and at the same fill your home with pleasant, refreshing odors.
When a home is filled with people and food, it can quickly become a magnet for flies.
These insects are drawn to the smells of food, human activity, and waste, making them a common presence in homes around the world. Unfortunately, their presence can also lead to the spread of fly-borne diseases.
To address the problem of flies in the home, using certain types of incense can be an effective and natural solution. These incense can act as a repellent for flies, offering a safe and natural alternative to traditional chemical pest control methods.
Furthermore, Incense can be burned in different forms like sticks, cones, and coils, which can be placed strategically in areas where flies tend to congregate, such as the kitchen or near garbage cans. This makes incense a convenient and effective way to keep your home fly-free.
