    Get one of those ugly strip that look like a long curl, and hang it out of sight. You must have a nest that is in your house. Spray with homemade fly spray. I'll get the recipe, and get back to you.

    House flies enter because there is some source of food (garbage, kitty or dog litter or messes, compost or some other form of decay). First, find and remove the source of their food supply. Then set about removing all eggs/larvae they may have left around. If this is a major problem call in an exterminator for advice. Otherwise arm yourself with a good repellent spray and a fly swatter and wait for the cold weather to set in. Remember, they will naturally seek the warmth of your home so get after those nesting areas.

      Thank you for your reply. The problem is in the open courtyard area. Especially when we set up the dining table. May be it is for the smell of the food. I would also like to try the UV light fly repellers
