How to Get Rid of Flies in My Car

March 2, 2024

Flies can splatter the inside and outside of your car with their blood as they fly around, leaving unsightly and stubborn stains. These insects can also carry bacteria and diseases that are dangerous to your health. They also leave behind a sticky residue that is difficult to remove and can damage your paint job.

To prevent flies from entering your vehicle, regularly vacuum the interior of your car and wipe down surfaces to remove food particles. Also, make sure to close all ventilation'secret doors' that flies can crawl through.

You can also use lavender, eucalyptus, and peppermint essential oils to help keep flies away. You can either apply these oils directly or mix them with water and put it in a spray bottle. You can also use this spray in your house to deter flies.

Flies are most commonly found in areas with a lot of garbage and animal waste, so cleaning up any rubbish or compost bins can be helpful in keeping them away from your home. Similarly, fixing any cracks or dents in your driveway or carport can prevent them from getting into your vehicle.

Another simple way to help prevent flies from entering your vehicle is to keep the windows closed when you're driving. This is especially important if you have young children in the vehicle who might be inclined to open a window. Also, don't leave food or drink containers in your car. These can attract flies due to their smell and the residue left behind from food or drinks.
