Flies

Flies are everywhere. In any market, landfill, department store, and home. IT can be hard keeping them out of your vicinity unless you have something to ward them off or something to keep them at bay. They do not become a problem unless they are large in numbers, large in size, or largely infested with disease-carrying organisms. There are only a few common flies that roam often and do not cause immediate harm to persons or food.

 

Characteristics

Small flies breed in moist organic matter. This can be decaying vegetables or fruits, contaminated soil by drains or sewage, and of course, garbage. Some flies breed in specific warm, moist areas such as meat, cheese, cadavers, manure, and fungus along the streams where moss grows. Since there are different types of flies, some breeds may inhabit fruits and vegetables more than manure. It is important to provide them with something of their interest that will eliminate them, or something to restrict them from getting into your home. If their presence lingers too long, then they could spread disease to you or your family, either by landing on commonly used surfaces or improperly stored foods.

Removal

Clean and inspect under your refrigerator, mops, mop buckets, and trashcan. Eliminate the problem before the infestation grows and becomes a health hazard. Any places where flies can inhabit and breed needs to be cleaned regularly or eliminated from your home when not in use, such as a grill, fire pit, or grease pan. Contact Antworks Pest Control if you suspect you have a fly problem.
