Montreal is undoubtedly a fantastic place to call home. However, pesky flies, especially in the summer, can sometimes disrupt the tranquility of our living spaces. Whether you’re enjoying a quiet evening indoors or hosting friends and family, dealing with flies is never pleasant. In this guide, The Clean Panther Nettoyages is happy to share our five proven techniques to help you keep your  home fly-free.


1. Natural Repellents (Essential Oils)

Essential oils such as eucalyptus, peppermint, and citronella, when diluted with water and applied strategically around entry points, serve as an olfactory deterrent for flies and other insects. This not only ensures a refined ambiance but also reinforces the integrity of your living spaces.


2. Maintain a Clean Kitchen

Keep your kitchen spotless to prevent fly infestations. Regularly wipe down surfaces, dispose of food waste promptly, and maintain a hygienic kitchen environment.


3. Mesh Screens

Install high-quality mesh screens to keep flies out while allowing fresh air in. Perfect for Montreal’s open-window summers, mesh screens are functional and blend seamlessly with your home decor.


4. Apple Cider Vinegar Traps

Set up apple cider vinegar traps by mixing it with dish soap. Place these traps strategically in fly-prone areas to attract and eliminate flies discreetly.


5. Strategic Plant Placement

Use plants like basil, mint, and lavender near entry points. These not only add a touch of nature to your home but also naturally repel flies.



Implementing these techniques will ensure a fly-free (and insect-free) home in Montreal. From using essential oils and mesh screens to maintaining kitchen hygiene, setting up vinegar traps, and strategically placing plants, these simple methods guarantee a clean and pest-free living space. Enjoy the beauty of Montreal without the bother of flies.
