21 Comments for the Fly Control Home Remedy


To kill flys, bees, hornets and wasps, spray with Windex. On housefly's it usually only takes a small whiff to knock them out of the air and kill them. Wasps will fall right away too but you may need to hit them with another dose. Ants can be discouraged by spraying around doors and windows as well as on the ants themselves though I think there are other products that work better for them... it's not bad in a pinch. :)

It absolutely works on flies. I have been spraying Raid for days. It does not kill them or knock them out of the air. It stinks like a cheap car air freshener and makes me cough. The Windex knocked it out of the air, and it was dead within 2 minutes. It doesn't leave my house smelling like whorehouse cologne which is more than I can say for insecticide.

A few sprays of Clorox Green Works seems to work like Windex. It does take several sprays. Of course the concern is if the flies are high up, the spray winds up also going downward on the person doing the spraying! Makes me wonder about how safe it is to be breathing in this stuff, so use with open windows!


I tried this and it does not kill the flies it just makes them fall to the ground so you can kill them.


Ts the ammonia in the windex that does the trick. I use this to get rid of bees. Bottle of ammonia is cheaper then windex.


good old fashioned hair spray like Aquanet works very well.




I totally agree it works. I was frustrated and all I had under the kitchen sink was Windex. I grabbed it and started spraying, they started dropping. I sw er by Windex for flies. No more stinky chemicals.
