Why does vinegar and soap kill flies?

Flies are attracted to the smell of apple cider vinegar and will fly over for a taste. However, they will soon find themselves trapped.

The dish soap helps to break the surface tension of the vinegar.

This means instead of stopping over for a drink, the flies fall into the liquid.

The thick liquid is sticky and pulls the flies down, drowning them.

Use houseplants

Some houseplants are thought to deter flies with their strong smell. This includes the likes of basil, lavender, bay leaf, mint, marigolds, and nasturtiums.

Keep lights off

Turn off lights at night where possible, as light attracts flies.

Make a natural fly trap

A dish of vinegar and soap can act as a natural fly trap. Mix the two together and leave the mixture out to kill flies.
