AS much as we all love the sunshine, it can often bring with it annoying flies and mosquitoes.

Even though there are a few ways you can try and get rid of them they’re not very cheap, which is why one cleaning fan shared the bargain method she swears by.

All you need to try the hack is some coffee grounds, a few cloves and a candle wick.

Start by pouring the coffee grounds into a small heat-proof glass and dot in three to 10 small cloves on top.

Then insert a candle wick into the coffee grounds and light the top of it.

The wick won’t burn but will help spread the scent of coffee and cloves, which will keep pesky flies and mosquitos at bay, the cleaning whizz claimed.

According to the experts at Mr. Mister, who specialise in mosquito control, the scent of coffee drives the insects away from homes.

They said: “Since coffee grounds have such a pungent and intense smell, mosquitoes do not like to come near it.

“Mosquitoes are repulsed by all types of coffee, whether it is fresh, used, or burnt.”

They agreed burning coffee grounds is an effective method to try, thanks to the strong aroma.”

You don’t need any particular type of coffee to try this hack out – any old coffee will do the trick, as long as it’s not flavoured.

And if you don’t already have coffee at home you might not even need to buy some for this trick, since the mosquito experts noted a lot of coffee shops will give away used grounds for free.

After the hack was shared on Instagram other homeowners raved about how well it works.

One said: “I tried this last summer and it’s good.”

A second agreed: “I can’t tolerate the smell of coffee but I know people who use it for mosquitoes.”
