I have LOTS of flies in my remote mountain cabin. This dry year I also had lots of bees (and mosquitoes inside the cabin which is unusual). How can I get rid of these darn flies (and also bees if they continue – it is unusual to see bees in the cabin – might be global warming).
Cabins are prone to invading insects. The smell of the wood tends to attract insects naturally drawn to this odor. And some of the most common that like the smell include bees, wasps, flies and mosquitoes.
But cabins can be made “pest proof” with the right products applied. Follow these guidelines and you’ll get rid of any nesting on the home and keep them out for the rest of the fall. Come next year, 2-3 treatments during the year will prevent new invasions from happening.
First, dust the entire outside of the home using DRIONE DUST. This treatment should be applied to every crack and crevice along the siding, under soffits, around windows etc. Drione is supreme at preventing pests from using homes for nests and will last 3-6 months when applied thoroughly.

Next, spray the homes exterior with CYPERMETHRIN. Its fast acting and highly repellent so any insects landing on treated surfaces will die. But for the most part, they’ll avoid the treated areas.
Lastly, install AEROSOL 1000 machines inside the home equipped with METERED INSECTICIDE. It will kill all flying pests like mosquitoes, flies, etc. One refill will last 30-40 days and you’ll need one machine for every 400 sq/ft of area.
